Saturday Snapshot -- Backyard Wedding

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on West Metro Mommy. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

Sorry I haven't blogged since Monday, I've been busy working on my next book.
But last night I went to my nephew's wedding and I have some photos to share today. They ended up getting married earlier than scheduled and so decided to have a ceremony and celebration at my brother's house.

Here they are with their families. My brother, his wife and daughter on the left.
My nephew Michael is in the Navy, so after some pictures he changed into his uniform.


They decided to throw sprinkles and Michael is shaking sprinkles out of his ear here.
Two problems with the idea of throwing sprinkles instead of rice: people ate the sprinkles while waiting for the couple to walk past and when stepped on, the sprinkles made a real mess.

My brother Craig from Texas came up for the wedding. This is him with his grandson Oliver on his shoulders.

Lovely photos! Weddings are such wonderful events. I think I've also heard of people throwing birdseed.

I'm laughing at the sprinkles. That's something they'll remember for a long time.

It’s an amazing backyard wedding. Thanks for sharing these photos. I want to have a simple wedding but don’t have backyard at my home. Thinking to book one of garden venues in our city as have heard that they are quite affordable.
