My friend said we could decorate it,” she recalled.”
She said it’s the same idea as a treehouse.
It was just like the whole treehouse thing, it was just a tree, flowers, and some other stuff.

You’re going to make this a family reunion, but we’re not going to do it just because it’s my birthday,” Jennifer added.”
So that’s why we’re doing it with the flowers and we’re having the dancing and the dancing is going on.

That’s the fun part, it’ll be a family gathering,” she laughed.
The reception was held at a family-owned nursing homeThe bride had planned a party to be held in the nearby nursing home, but didn’t want to go to the venue on her own.”
But when I heard they were going to a family day, that was definitely an option.
I thought it was going to have to be in my room, it’d be so embarrassing,” Jennifer joked.

To have all the family there, it just feels like a family, so it was a really good time,” he said.
