The Big Day is the new awesome

I got back from Utah almost a week ago and still haven't posted anything about it. I didn't feel too much pressure, since there had already been some great documentation that took place.

Maybe Aaron and I were just too busy making sure the terrorists didn't win?

Okay. Bets probably has a whole camera full of better pictures, but this post will just have to do until she shares them all with us. This is the happy couple right after saying "I Do." Betsy sort of tricked everyone by not having a wedding dress on, so when they sent her out of the temple they didn't even send her out the special bride door. We were all there waiting outside of the door to take photos of her, and she walked up behind us instead.

Afterwords there was a dinner to celebrate, and I got to sit at the cool kids table with all the fun people that had come up from southern california. It was kind of a big deal. There was even a list.

(Which we let Erica add her name to)

There was also a special little ring ceremony.

Jen and Joe gave some marriage advice.

John did a pose that he says he learned on the new awesome.

And Emma offered everyone color coordinated handouts. And just looked pretty.

Who else came? So many friends.

All that practice paid off.

So maybe bets got a honeymoon to Hawaii, but at least I came home from Utah with a new pair of shoes, artisted by the ever-talented damian.

(these are much more stylish than a husband any day)

Congrats to bets and steve! The wedding was lovely.

    Did everyone get notes on how Betsy wanted everyone to look? Have I ever seen a wedding reception (or gathering of any kind) where every. single. attendee. was attractive, stylish, and all-around groovy?
    ...One more question:
    How do we not have one single picture of Betsy taking a picture of herself? Is that possible???

    Damian, I don't ever want to hear you say how you don't got game every again.
    I SEE the flipbook.

  • At 10:32 AM, Blogger Damian said…

  • At 4:57 PM, Blogger Damian said…

  • At 2:40 PM, Blogger Cindy said…

    I, personally, am into freedom kissing.
