I Do!


We had a wedding Saturday. This is the first big family gathering since hubby and I got married 15 months ago. It was the wedding of my cute hubby's second daughter's oldest son. (Whew, did you get that?) The whole family lives in Albuquerque except for Josh, the groom, who lives in Salt Lake. He married a black haired beauty named Molly. These two are so cute together! We had quite a diversified group of people attending the wedding. Hubby's youngest daughter said it was a little like the Democratic National Convention on one side of the room and the Republican National Convention on the other. It was pretty funny because that was exactly what it was like. Thank goodness we aren't all the same. Life would be mighty boring! And this wedding wouldn't have been as much fun.



The wedding was held at the 23rd Floor of the Wells Fargo Building in downtown Salt Lake. This is the view. The first picture is to the Northeast, the second is to the East toward the University of Utah and the last is to the South. I couldn't get a picture of the North because there is a huge building blocking the view, but, if I had I could have posted a picture of Temple Square. And the setting sun was shinning in the West windows so I couldn't get a picture of the Great Salt Lake either. You'll have to just use your imagination. Needless to say, it was breathtaking.

These lovely ladies were the Flower Girls. They are the twins nieces of Molly. They were so darling as they walked down the aisle dropping rose petals.



Here are Josh's sisters Alexi and Kayli dancing to the awesome DJ at the reception. The middle picture is the groomsmen's. Josh's youngest brother A.J. is first followed by the Best man. Sorry Best man, I cannot remember your name. Next is our handsome groom Josh with his other brothers Ben (who is getting married in May) and Matt. Matt is one funny guy! This last picture is of the young lady who caught the bouquet dancing with the young man who caught the garter. Unfortunately, Kayli and A.J. are brother and sister, but what good sports they were. The DJ wanted A.J. to put the garter on Kayli's leg. Very funny looks on both their faces!


And here are the bride and groom. First cutting their cake and then dancing their first dance together. Finally, here is Josh taking Molly's garter off with his teeth. Ah, to be young


These little darlings came over to visit us before the wedding. Alex and Jaden live in Idaho so we don't get to see them often. The last picture is of Alex and Jaden's Grandpa Jim taking a nap with their baby brother Paxton.

This little sweetheart, Kambri, stayed at our house with Grandma Gwen, (hubby's third daughter), Grandpa Jim, her Aunt Mary Jo and Mom Emily. She is so funny and we miss her already! (And the rest of our visitors too!)

And here is a picture of Matt, Misty and Emelia. I noticed when I downloaded the pictures I didn't get any family shots....just Matt and Misty. Thanks for letting me take your picture until I got one that wasn't fuzzy.

We really did have a good time and Hubby and I even danced. Now that was very exciting!

Thanks to Molly and Josh and their families for sharing their special day with us. We wish them much happiness and love for their new life together.

What a sweet post. Thanks for sharing! And also, thanks for the Packers updates last weekend! They're off this weekend, so we can just kick back and relax, right?

So did the two sides of the room ever venture across? I'm sure I wouldn't have. I am terrible that way--I have a very small comfort zone in a big room with a big crowd.
