Perfect Wedding...(almost).

This weekend we drove down to Utah (again) for the marriage of Reid's nephew Chase. Chase is just a year older than our son Jordan and they served together in the same mission. Garth and Katrina rode with us and it was good conversation, good company and we made good time, with ONE stop in Boise for food and gas. Chase and Amy were getting married in the Salt Lake Temple on Saturday....

One slight problem--the flu hit on Friday. Buffy (the groom's mom) and Amy were deathly sick with the flu. Amy spent the morning of her wedding in the hospital for some IV's and shots... She still looked beautiful but you could tell she was not feeling well. It did not hit Chase until midway through the reception.




Here is the groom's family:


Buffy, Chase, Amy, Jackie, Brigham and Lincoln

Brigham is a happy, fun boy and he really liked Uncle Reid. They were so cute together.



All the Aunt's and Uncle's came....



And their wives (Thanks Jordan, I think you have a career ahead in photography if the candy machine thing doesn't work out....)



There was a little rain....



And lots of talking...



And it was so fun to get to spend a day with our son Jordan....




The not so perfect part was Saturday the flu hit with a vengenance. James, Jordan, Ann, Aunt Lorraine, Aunt Katrina, Brooke, Crystal, Uncle Garth and Uncle Reid all were hit. WE stopped at every rest stop on the way home. Jordan was headed to California for 'strictly business' and ended in Mesquite and James, Ann, Lorraine and Leon made it all the way to Boise before they had to stop. Thanks for the wedding memories....

I love all the pics, but sorry to hear the flu hit you all too. Connor and I got it too. We're hoping that Chase and Amy recover enough though to actually enjoy their honeymoon.

That is one for the record books! Their marriage can surely only get better from there!!

we are sad we weren't there and hoping Jordan doesn't give us the flu anyways! Chase and Amy still look great!

That might be the worst wedding story I have ever heard! At least they have a story to tell...

How awful! The flu on your wedding day, yuck!

Stacey said...

No! That is so sad. She looks beautiful still. What a trooper.

It is a story, great pictures, but Yuk! sick on your wedding day. I got sick on our honey moon, after I told Glenn he would just love being married to me, because I hardly ever got sick! :) We had to keep stopping the car so I could throw up. That has happened more than a few times in our marriage.
