What a Wedding it Was!

Saturday we went to the wedding of one of Skyler's lifetime friends, Marla.  From Kindergarten, Marla was always one of the kids who didn't mind that Skyler had CP, and always stuck up for him.  She is a great young women, and the same age as he is at 21. 

Marla's family is Mormon, so we expected to be invited to some form of a ceremony, but not the actual marriage.  But come to find out that her husband is not Mormon, and his family is really not very religious at all.  So how would the two families rectify this situation?  The way that everyone should, ask what the kids would like.  Since they met at a Renaissance festival, that is how they wanted the wedding to be handled. 

When I heard this I was thinking, oh boy, here we go.  But the kids actually pulled it off pretty well, and it was very moving.  They wrote the whole thing themselves.  So I won't be Judgy McJudgerstein here.  It was their day and they looked great. 

With the possible exception of the broadswords...

  4. Please tell me you didn't have to bring Skyler down those stairs. The the black and red hair in the front row for reals?

  5. Awesome! Weddings are, in a manner, the ultimate self-expression (with the possible exception of bad tattoos...)
