What made the day unique:
Jennifer's sister passed away of cystic fibrosis in June 2002 at age 13. The ceremony was scheduled to be outdoors, but as the day went on the clouds rolled in along with strong winds and warnings of squals and tornados. However, as Jennifer and her bridesmaids came outside and began walking down the aisle - the sun shone through. Many guests, and of course Matt and I, were in awe of the situation and say it was my sister Julie's way of being present.

Secrets Maroma Beach Resort in Mexico.
