The "I do's"
Two of my nephews were married this summer.
wait, that didn't sound right...
Two of my nephews were each married this summer.
Before you view the following picture, please keep in mind the year was 1994.
My wedding day.
The boys circled in yellow are my nephews that got married this summer
Ben (in the glasses) and Greg.
Ok now move on...scroll down, scroll down!
And here they are just recently on their respective wedding days.
Weddings are one of those magical days for all those involved-
I imagine especially for the parents of the bride and groom.
I was a bit obsessed with these wedding days.
Lauren and Greg's wedding was mid-morning on a Thursday - a perfect time.
While waiting for the obligatory family pictures,
Dean's sweet sister Karen put baby Canyon to sleep.
She mentioned how old we all would be twenty-five years from now
when Canyon gets married.
It was quite depressing. I thought about it all day.
On a happier note-
Every detail of the wedding was very unique and so darling.
Just what I would've wanted at my own wedding.
The warm end-of-July weather was perfect.
We all just lingered around talking and eating,
If I were to do it all over again I would insist on an outdoor wedding.
Quincy loved the live Doves.
I thought the love birds were a nice touch as well.
I usually give in to peer pressure every time and do my
"chocolate on my teeth" trick.
Such a crowd pleaser.
The Father-of-the Groom Stephen and his daughter Taryn pose for a picture.
Steve is smiling.
He must be thinking... two down - two to go.
amazing day spent with amazing people.
The newleyweds sped off in a vintage Mustang convertible
under a bridge of sparklers.
Then just two weeks later,
(on Friday the thirteenth of all days) Ben and Charlee tied the knot.The wedding breakfast was before the wedding- again...brilliant!
Why didn't I think of that?
Ben played the piano while his brothers sang to Charlee at the Wedding breakfast.
Look out Jonas Brothers, Here come the Roberts Brothers!
After the wedding ceremony,
a reception was held at an amazing ranch in the South Fork of Provo Canyon.
Charlee's colors were various shades of purple with Gold accents.
A perfect color scheme for an August wedding. So elegant.
The Ranch was incredible -
with lush green lawns, a little duck pond, a gazebo etc.
The beautiful bride was relaxed and happy
mingling around with friends and adoring little cousins.
At one point I saw the Bride and Groom wander off together.
Then the newleyweds emerged a few minutes later
in their "decorated" car and drove off into the sunset.
Their honeymoon was a mediterranean cruise. seriously.
I walked around making mental notes all day.
here they are...
When River saw Ben and Charlee dancing,
she walked over to Dean and said "may I have this dance sir?..."
