Going to the Chapel… Or Are We?

July 24, 2013

Last weekend was an absolute blast!  There’s really nothing better than spending the weekend at the coast with loved ones to witness your brother’s marriage! My brother Aaron and his WIFE Katie were so simple when it came to wedding planning.  All they wanted was to spend the weekend with family and get married on the beach.  That’s just what we did. My parents rented a HUGE mansion of a beach house with three floors and heaven knows how many rooms.  We slept 27 people there with room to spare…  At least I think it was 27…  Let’s see… 2 Parents
2 Grandparents
1 Great-Aunt
1 Uncle
3 Aunts
11 Siblings
2 Siblings-In-Law
1 Sibling’s Boyfriend
3 Cousins
1 Cousin-in-Law
And a partridge in a pear tree… Yep – 27 people and that elusive partridge. Games Collage

    That's so nice that they got to do the wedding just the way they wanted. It's so fun to rent a beach house and have everyone stay there. my family has done that a couple of times when we all congregate back to Neskowin our favorite spot on the Oregon Coast.

    It sounds like so much fun. And it also sounds like probably the only relaxing wedding for the people involved that I have ever heard of. They look like such a happy couple.

    Cute! I definitely used to swim in the Oregon coast… brave kids. 🙂 It would be pretty rough to do it now, and I'd have to have a hot tub waiting! What a wonderful celebration! So much fun, I just love weddings.
