wedding luncheon

Lauri is often my favorite sister. She does so many nice things for me.  Lauri hosted a beautiful luncheon on Rachel's wedding day.  It is always nice and inviting to go in her house anyway, but for her to go to great lengths to make our day extra special is so amazing.
Between the temple services in the morning, and the reception in the evening, we had a whole bunch of hungry people. Lauri served adorable boxed lunches. Look how cute they turned out.  I'm missing some photos, I know I had a photo of how they were displayed, all stacked up and labeled so cute.


 I had a few pictures of some of the guests too, but I'm not finding them right now, but here are a couple of cute guests (Debbie and Garry have some adorable granddaughters), and a sleepy guest.  It is nice to get a chance to rest for a minute on a busy day.


wedding morning

Rachel and Kyle were married in the Mesa AZ Temple.  I couldn't have been happier. That is where Dave and I were married, and where my parents were married. (by the way, if you happen to be reading this and are not familiar with the LDS Temple, it is a religious, reverent, sacred ceremony, and we save all the celebratory photos for outside the temple)  It was a beautiful day, threatening to rain, but it didn't, just gave us a beautiful day for photos. 

 Friends and family stepped out of the temple first, then comes the bride and groom --
 let the celebration begin!

 A little brotherly love.

wedding crazy-ness

It's usually Melanie who is the center of all the photographic silliness, but I think Dave and Jonny gave her a run for her money at this event.

 Selfie!

 Dave was the king of the Photo Bomb!
