I mentioned on Facebook that my brother got married Saturday. It was a beautiful wedding, and the reception was visually stunning – just like Jonathan’s sweet bride Brandi. Her mother made a gorgeous array of 13 wedding cakes not to mention the utterly cool setup of chocolate groom’s cakes, one of which was suspended from a crane. Did I mention my brother recently acquired his crane operator’s license? Too cool!
Jonathan is #7 of 14 children in our family, and now half of us are married. In a show of symmetry that makes the world a more perfect place, exactly half of the girls and half of the boys are married. Of the remaining 7, most are too young to be married so we’re not holding our breath. Four are even younger than my oldest child.
My in-laws blew in and out of town for the wedding, but we’re still looking forward to a couple more days of my grandparents’ company, and Uncle Lumberjack will be in town for another week.
I’ll add photos to this post as soon as I can find a card reader, sort through them, and download a way to crop and reduce the resolution on this particular computer. Can you tell we’re having technical challenges? Every geeky fiber within me cringes at the confession, so I will quickly change the subject.
New subject: Puppies! Can you say, “aaawwww”?
Jonathan and his beautiful bride Brandi:
Our oldest brother, Kyle, and Jonathan’s best man. He’s just too cool.
The four brothers, plus an almost-brother, front and center.
Guess who reads too much Calvin & Hobbes?
Just a few close family members from the groom’s side:
“Hey, let’s get a picture of all the Perry’s.”
“Let’s kiss him!”
Kait, looking beautiful as usual:
