After The Wedding

Okay, I’ll admit it. . . I’m still a little tired after the wedding. It was a lot of fun but an exhausting time. I hope to get caught up on my blog reading shortly.

You might be interested in a few more wedding pictures and the events after the wedding. If so . . . .

Following the wedding the reception was great. Both Desiree and Nathan deserve a lot of credit for putting the final touches on the this event as well.


Shannel and Desiree's Mother making some adjustments to the back of her dress.


Char adjusting the back of Desiree's dress. By now Desiree had to be wondering what is the problem with the back of this dress? It should be pointed out, once Nathan was dressed not one Groomsman adjusted anything.

Father Cliff and Father in Law Ralph in a deep discussion about religious matters - well, maybe not.

DILOR (Daughter In Law Of Ralph) decided it was time to dawn the John Deere attire.




Before you even ask. . .yes, alcohol was involved.



And what's a party without a little spontaneous karaoke?






Somewhere along the way line dancing started in the lobby.






I'm no longer a party animal, neither was my co-best man.



The party just kept moving - from the reception hall to the lobby and now to the deck.

The following day, back at our homestead Mr. and Mrs. opened their wedding gifts.




Father Cliff and Marilyn caught up the excitement.





The last three pictures summarizes the event.

The dam adjusting...There was alot of that going on. WOMEN I tell ya.

Tiffany... My sweet Tiffany. She had a good time and she told us months befor she was going to have the time of her life! SHE DID!

Father Cliff and Marilyn SLEEPING! What the heck....

Have to bring a little farm to the city, what better way then with a foam John Deere hat.

The karaoke was fun... Even if we were all three words behind the song.

Watching Nathan dance...well let's just say you don't see that much.

I have to agree I think that party animal was tested in each of us.

GOOD TIMES & GREAT MEMORIES!
Once again great post!

You got them all married off, huh? Good for you!
Will you have to marry off the neighbor kid too? He reminds me of the neighbor kid that follows Dagwood around so much.
