Chris & Annette's Wedding

My brother Chris got married, making all the Yorgason kids finally married (except Matt, who thinks he's next now)!!! My sister Deb and her family were not able to be there since she is close to having her baby, and we missed her and Greg and little Max tons. Except for that, it was a perfect day. Everything was beautiful and the ceremony was amazing, even though I thought my brother Matt was going to throw up on me. Didn't happen, but it would have been quite a story to tell. I've added lot of pictures, some which Melissa Boyle Niu took. She is an amazingly talented photographer and a family friend and it was so fun to have her and her brother there. Click on her name if you want to see more of her work.

I wish we could have captured the whole night in pictures. The reception was in my parents backyard, where all of us have had our receptions. My parents have figured this out to a T, and I don't think there was one thing they forgot. They even painted the grass with food coloring where the dead spots were. Nothing was to be left undone. The tent was beautiful, the lights in the tent and bushes set the perfect mood, the food was amazing, desserts were to die for...Cheesecake Factory Cheesecakes and a Chocolate Fountain, ice carved into bowls to serve drinks, wedding cake carved out of ice, music I could have listened to all night...it was all so perfect. The kids played their little hearts out on the playground, helped themselves to as much sugar and sweets as one could handle. Caden was so sweaty and hot before the night even got started. He and his cousin Gabe know how to have fun only like boys do. Avery spent the night dancing on the dance floor, playing in the sand, eating lots of food. I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Caden went through two shirts and two pairs of paints by the time the night was over. Who knew chocolate and mud would come out so easy with a little Zout?

Avery just adores Caden, and he's pretty sweet with her too :)
