My stepsister, Lauren, got married to Gabe Memorial Day weekend in a family member's backyard. (The term "backyard" is a bit of a misnomer; it was actually a gigantic field.) It was a really nice weekend and a lovely wedding. I was one of the unofficial wedding photographers, which was a fun honor for me.
|Lauren gets ready!|
|Gabe and Lauren wanted to light a unity candle, but Lauren had never struck a match before..? I think. It was hard to understand. But all the groomsmen tried to help. It was cute.|
|Lauren and Gabe got their engagement rings tattooed on their ring fingers.|
|After dinner, I hid in the field.|
|The coconut-covered bars are lamington, a popular Australian dessert (because Lauren's mom, my stepmother, is Australian, Lauren loves them).|
|Taite enjoys a cupcake and Dad is very proud.|
