There were just a million things to be thankful for that day. It was Jessica's WEDDING DAY and she was marrying her dream boy and our dream brother Evan. Almost all of our favorite people were there to celebrate. We were in our favorite place on earth. It was all so good.

Jessica didn't have hardly a care in the world that day... She was just thrilled to finally be marrying Evan. It's ok, we took care of her "would be" cares for her so it was all good.

After the ceremony and group shots, the photographer took the bride and groom on a little photo safari while everyone else headed back to the cabin to put the final finishes on dinner.

We were overwhelmed at everyone's willingness to pitch in and make the dinner so special and not to mention, delicious. We planned the menu out months in advance and prepared the food little by little in the days leading up to the wedding. As you can see, everyone was hard at work and still having a good time! I love my family.

We used a variety of china dishes from our grandparents, aunts and my mom.

We made some of Evan and Jessica's favorite foods like bacon wrapped green beans, deviled eggs, beef tenderloin, cheesy mashed potatoes, etc.

While the happy couple was taking pictures, guests enjoyed appetizers outside on the deck.

As soon as the newlyweds arrived, we welcomed them, Dad said a special blessing and prayer and then we enjoyed dinner under the stars.

Evan requested a Dairy Queen ice cream cake for his grooms cake because that's his favorite. I think we enjoyed his cake as much as the wedding cake!

After the cakes were cut and toasts were made, Evan decided he wanted to be comfortable {ha!} and changed before they took off to their honeymoon... which happened to be in Jackson Hole because why on earth would you leave?

There are SO many more pictures and little tidbits from the day that I do not have room to share on this little blog, but these two posts definitely hit the highlights. Their wedding day was totally a team effort to carry out. With Jessica's preferences in the back of her mind, my mother planned the entire weekend and with the help of our family, we were able to execute every little thing.

Evan and Jessica say that their special day could not have been any more perfect. I couldn't agree more. It takes a village... and they have a strong one on their side.
