Karina and Bryan, Married!

There’s a moment during a wedding when you look at everyone’s smiling faces and you know. You know, that this couple is together for a reason. What a blessing it has been to be part of Karina and Bryan’s celebrations down in New Jersey! It was so wonderful seeing many of my personal friends from Harvard as well… college has really changed my life, and to be able to spend time with people I rarely see is such a treat. For me it felt more like a destination wedding experience as I was able to arrive on Friday night and attend the rehearsal, be there all Saturday for the wedding, and then leave on Sunday. Our friends and I hung out a lot, ate lots of good Korean food (mmm fried chicken!), there was even a late night poker game in my room that involved a lot of push-ups and sit-ups.

I didn’t miss these two too much though, because I got to see them again two weeks later at another friend’s wedding. Okay, I do miss them. God bless everything with you guys!
