Our 4th of July holiday weekend kicked off with Mai-Vi + Paul’s intimate wedding in Boca Raton on July 3rd. We were blown away by the relaxed atmosphere of the small group of relatives and close friends, and felt immediately welcome. Mai-Vi started her day by going on a “fun run” with her girls (“just ten miles”– wow!), and then settled into her air conditioned suite at the Boca Raton Resort + Club to get ready. Paul and his guys hung out in their own suite elsewhere in the sprawling resort, with a well-loved American flag along for the ride (in addition to their matching flag socks). Molly’s Trolleys ran laps between the Resort and St Lucy Catholic Church just up the road, so we all were able to ride in comfort with the sparkling Atlantic Ocean alongside.
After the ceremony everyone headed to The Addison for cocktails, dinner, and dancing. The Addison is a beautiful place for an event, with towering banyan trees shading the enclosed courtyard. We loved the laughter and connections between everyone present, and seeing nearly everyone out on the dance floor multiple times was a treat. (We were especially touched by Mai-Vi’s dedication of her bouquet to her dear friends who were celebrating their 5th wedding anniversary that day… how sweet!)
