It was rather convenient that the wedding was held in Arizona, although the bride and groom live in Wisconsin. Every one of Steve’s siblings and spouses were in attendance and Steve’s parents came back for a week from their mission in Ghana. No one wants to miss out on a fun party!
Steve’s brother offered to host the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, so Friday morning we came in full force to transform the back patio. Let me tell you – if I need to get something done, I want these ladies on my team. They know how to get stuff done and they’re fun to work with. We created order out of chaos!
That night, we were able to sneak a couple pictures while everyone was showing up. Getting a family that large all together takes some serious effort – we always document with a picture when we can make it happen.
And because it’s often hard to tell who’s a sibling and who’s an in-law, there is always an “original” picture.
Our nephew and his soon-to-be bride rolled in to the party in this old truck that she had worked on with her brother growing up. If I pulled up in that truck I would look ridiculous – but when you ooze cool like these two, it fits so well!
We talked and laughed. We ate great food. We celebrated love. It was a fun celebration.
And as much time as it took to set up this beautiful environment, we had it torn down in a fraction of that time. Benefits of a large family – many hands make work light!
