Jenn & Jason's Wedding

This weekend was Jenn and Jason's wedding.  I was a groomsmen in theirs as he was a groomsmen in mine.  We are so stoked that the two of them tied the knot and can tell that they both couldn't be happier.  It was a beautiful ceremony with a "tree" theme throughout the night.  The weather held for their ceremony and only rained shortly during the reception when everyone was inside eating anyway.  Great friends, great music, great drinks.  A perfect weekend.   Click on the title or below to read more.
