Dan's Wedding

My nephew, Dan got married last summer. It was a great opportunity for Ruby's side of the family to see each other. It was the first time in 16 years (I think) that we were all together. I have tried to pick some fun photos of the family, but it was impossible to even include my favorites there were so many to choose from.

Dave's three daughters, my nieces... Melissa, Amy and Valerie. One of my favorite things of this whole event was watching the siblings interact with one another. I could tell there was a lot of love there.

Josie with her "missionaries". Stephen, left, has just entered the MTC this week, and Dan on the right, just got home. (Prior to his wedding....)

Jackson and his cousin, Timothy. These two had a lot of fun hanging out for the week. It was quite a novelty for my kids to actually have cousins around that were their age. (in Jackson's case... also a boy)

Shane had fun hanging with cousins and grown ups alike. He and Aunt Paula posed for a fun shot.

We all got a little silly in the fun of being together again. My sisters, Ann and Paula laugh together and have a good time. I knew Ann's husband wouldn't mind not being in the photo. He hates his picture taken. There wasn't a good shot of Ron and Ann together.

My sister Betty must have been camera shy at the wedding. She wasn't in too many pictures other than groups. I thought this was a cute shot of her.
L to R: Ruby, Paula, Dave, and Betty.

Of course I had to include a picture of my sweetheart! Tony is a great husband. P.S. That is Ron on the right, ducking out of the picture.

My sister Paula and her husband, Corwin. They are alway so great to support family events. They traveled from AZ to be with us. This was really appreciated.

Parents of the groom. My sister-in-law, Terri and my brother Dave. A strange twist of fate brought them from Maryland to Utah for the wedding of their son. It was such a great thing for us to have their family around for a week and get to know them. Thanks for getting married in Utah Dan!

My cute brother Gary and his sweet wife Rhonda at the reception. It was great to see the two of them tease and interact with one another. They live in Arizona too, so we don't see them nearly enough.

Last but not least a photo of the bride and groom. We are excited to have Deb in our family. I can tell by being around her that she is really a special addition. We wish Dan and Deb the best of luck in their future.


  1. what a great post. I love seeing all my family in these pictures. It is a great way for me espically to see and catch up on everyone. I sure wish that I had been able to be there too. Then we would have all been together again. Way to go on your second post. It is amazing.
