Forget a Hollywood hot spot or the bright lights of Las Vegas – to ring in 2009, Britney Spears opted for a very special New Year’s Eve with her family in Louisiana, watching her brother, Bryan, tie the knot.
Bryan, 31, and Graciella Sanchez, 36, wed on New Year’s Eve in a private ceremony in New Orleans, according to People.

“It was beautiful,” a source told People. “It was only close family – very small and intimate.”
The entire Spears family was in attendance at the wedding, including Britney and her sons Jayden James and Sean Preston; Jamie Lynn, her daughter Maddie and fiance Casey Aldridge; as well as the kids’ parents Lynne and Jamie.
While Bryan and Graciella have known each other for years, they only began dating a short while ago. Graciella is little Spears sister Jamie Lynn’s longtime manager.
The bride wore a stunning beige-white Carolina Herrera dress for the nuptials, while the groom donned a dapper Marc Jacobs suit, according to People.
