We slept well back in the hospitality of our family. Most of the day was spent doing pretty chill activities and hanging out. At one point, we went to the Rotem store. I would have loved to get some of the bright cut outs there, but I have no wall space, and can't bring myself to spend that kind of money on something not entirely useful. If they had sold bookends in that style though... We got dressed for the wedding and headed to Ronit farm, the wedding location. It was gorgeous. Keren says that it is the prettiest place to have a wedding in all of Israel, and I believe her. The trees were lit beautifully; the lake was lit beautifully; the interior space was decorated beautifully; it was amazing. The wedding itself was pretty awesome too. There were certainly differences between this wedding and most US weddings, but in general, I thought the way Keren and Erez were doing things was better. For example, they were out mingling with the guests before the ceremony, not tucked away somewhere, missing their own party. The music was good, in my opinion. Once it came on, I danced every song, except the first and last which were just for the couple. I was reminded of the time when my friends used to go clubbing all the time, and I have no idea why we don't anymore. (I've decided that's where my friends are taking me for my birthday this year. So LRs, the only way you get a joint party is if you want to go clubbing. Sorry.) I'm almost sad to report that Erez was dancing more than Keren. I had so much fun at the party, and we even had fun on the drive home. We got there at 3 am, and I was still energized and ready to go have more fun because of the adrenaline rush of the party or maybe just because I have such great cousins. Anybody who wasn't there really missed out.
