Wedding Day Adventure

And what an adventure it was!  My daughter, Shelby, and her fiance, Kyle, picked March 30th for their wedding day.  Did I mention that they wanted an outside wedding…in March…in Wyoming?  Yep.  The weather lived up to it’s billing.  I had been in contact with our local weatherman, Mike Sils, to keep up-to-date with the latest weather forecasts for that day.  He suggested that we go with plan “B” (which was to have the wedding inside.)  Thank goodness for that heads-up because the day started out with rain, then the biggest snowflakes I have ever seen, then hail, and then rain, again.  The wedding venue was in a barn in the country.  My sister-in-law had to shuttle all the guests up to the barn in her 4-wheel drive.  Needless to say, it slowed down progress of all the things that needed to be accomplished prior to the “I do’s.”  Despite the mud, the wedding was still very beautiful.

The theme was mainly sunflowers with a smattering of Batman accents.  Kyle painted this city scape.

My husband and I created these chandeliers.  He welded the frames together and then we added lights, tulle, and ribbon.

Here is a couple of pictures of the barn all decked out.

I wonder what she was thinking.  Maybe something like, “let’s get this thing started already.”

You know that two people are made for each other when they react to something funny in the exact same, weird, way.

Here is the whole wedding party and family.  Did I mention there was mud…and now wind…and freezing cold temperatures.  Oh, and cactus in sandals.

And here is my goofy family.  This was not planned, it just happened as the picture was being taken.  I think it will be this year’s Christmas card.

Time to eat!  We had a taco bar buffet.

This is Shelby during the toast.  Those of us who know her well will understand the hand on the hip.

I made this cake from scratch.  My very first wedding cake ever!  And probably my last.  What a lot of hard work this was.  The grooms cake was made by Shelby.

We made a homemade photo booth from some PVC and sheets.  Kyle painted the scenes on the sheets.
