More of my weekend...a wedding.

This weekend my childhood friend Lynley got married. I've known her since the first day of kindergarten. :) Let's just say it's been a VERY long time! She got married at the David Island Garden Club, which is a beautiful location.
The ceremony was on the water and it was nice but a bit hot. Glad some of the chairs were in the shade.
After the ceremony there was cocktail hour. My friend Viviana and her boyfriend Nathan were there and Special K had not met them yet. So it was a good time for them to get to know each other.
The reception had great Panamanian food and it was great to see so many familiar faces.

The really cool part was that her mom surprised her with hiring some Pollera dancers. They are native Panamanian dancers and it was pretty cool to see. Special K didn't know what they were but I had explained them before so it was great for him to finally see them. I took a couple videos of some of the dances.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the videos. I'm so sleepy. I am off to get ready for bed...and then read for a bit and hopefully be asleep in no time!
