Congrats Brandon & Joni

This weekend our nephew got married to his high school sweetheart. Joni has really been a part of the family for many years now.

We went to the rehearsal dinner Friday. It was outside and the weather was actually pleasant.

The yard was decorated very nice and had a vintage country theme going. Mike's mom and sister made most of the food and it was great as always! The kids put out the always fun corn hole game. Mike and I had a pretty good winning streak going until we came up against Mike's parents. They mounted a crazy comeback!!

Saturday was the wedding. Joni looked beautiful and the wedding went off without a hitch. The ceremony was not the traditional wedding ceremony in some respects but was very nice because it was unique to Joni and Brandon.

Mike was super excited to throw the lavender on the newly married. He had combined three bags into one and went for the upward toss in hopes of an up the nose shot! Don't know if he was successful or not.

The reception was at the Doc & Merle Watson theater at Wilkes Community College. This is where the Merlefest is held annually. I had never been there and it was such a cool place. It stuck to the country theme of the wedding. They had old black and white picture of the family on display and that was very neat. I love that kind of stuff.

And here is the happy couple.

The food was great, the place was great and I have to say this was a great wedding. We wish them many years of happiness!!!
