seven/eleven

My brother's wedding this past Friday (7/11) was probably the most fun I've had since my wedding weekend. I am left overwhelmed by how much I love my friends and family. Makes me think that the small towns and villages around the earthplanet that are filled with families and friends who never move away and make a life together have something figured out. After the reception we grilled tubed-meats, shared cheese puffs and carbonated beverages, illegally swam in the heavily chlorinated pool and just talked until the wee small hours of the morning. The whole weekend was magic.

We showed the following video at the reception as surprise for Lindsey. Her reaction was exactly what we hoped for. We shot the video at the bachelor party. Pay attention to the tallest of the background dancers. He will appear to be deaf. He is not. He's just really drunk. And one of the worst dancers this world has ever seen. After it played the biggest question we got (surprisingly to me) was "how did you get matching suits?" They are $5 goodwill specials. Brent bought them all a month ago and since then Lindsey has been asking him how in the world he spent $40 at goodwill. As the video played Brent finally answered her.
