She has been living and working in Utah since her mission and she felt that many of her friends were there and it was centrally located for much of our family.
This is the longest distance wedding that we have put on to date. I flew to Utah about 3 weeks before the big day. My sister is helping us with the reception and so I moved in to her house. She has 3 children and is expecting her 4th and so it was really nice of them to put up with house guests for so long.
This is Mary, my niece, who is playing with stickers that her Aunt Jennifer brought.
Erin arrived about two weeks before the wedding and the three Erin, my sister Katie and I) of us got really busy finalizing details.
Lee, Megan and Janna drove down a week before the wedding to build a structure as a back drop behind the food table. It was so nice to see Lee again, we hadn't seen each other for 3 weeks, but we didn't get much time together. The whole family was gathering for wedding festivities.
