Another Wedding Weekend in Photos

Another weekend, another wedding.

OK, so I know that’s not actually a thing. But it feels like it! Just this summer, I’ve been to weddings in June, July, and now that we’ve hit August, might as well go to another! This time, it was a family affair…my oldest cousin Evan married his beautiful girlfriend Ashley, who has grown to be a part of our family these past 3-4 years — and my grandparents both got to see their first grandchild get hitched!

After getting a half day on Friday in honor of Fiesta, I went to my parents house and hung out with my mom while cooking up some stuff..

Lunch of champions with mom: tortilla chips, pita chips, hummus, guac, salsa, couscous… And a margarita slushie. — Pizzas for all! One special one for which the recipe is coming…& one half veggie half cheese (for my parents’ 6-year old godson)

Parents in the back — Little brother driving — the view from the backyard wedding — the entrance!

My youngest cousin, one of the flower girls — At the “altar”.. check out that dress! — First dance — Little brother sneak attack — Ashley and Evan’s dog, Mollie ❤

It was a wonderful day for a wonderful couple. The setting was beautiful and it was all outdoors (the weather turned out perfect!) at a really nice home in Santa Rosa.

Back at home, where our evening bar TV choices ranged from the Mars Curiosity landing to Oscar Pistorius‘s inspiring race.

Hope you all had a fun weekend as well!

Weekend in Photos: Wedding Edition

After 3-4 days of 100+ degree days last week, we got an almost perfect weekend here! Luckily for my high school friend Ryan, it was only in the mid-high 80’s all weekend, because…

He got married! It was up in the Sierras past Placerville, and completely outdoors from ceremony to reception! So you can see why the weather played an important role 😉 It was the first of two weddings I’ll be attending with my cast this summer — luckily since I knew very few people at the wedding, I only had to tell the story of how I broke it 2 or 3 times.

That may not be the case when my cousin Evan gets married in a couple of weeks – my dad’s family is LARGE, and I imagine I’ll be explaining my giant purple cast to lots of extended family members!

All in all, it was a great weekend, especially since T-Man got the night off to come with me to the wedding 🙂
