Summer Weddings

The initial purpose of our summer road trip (see the other three posts about it here, here, and here) was to attend two weddings - one in Nashville, one in Bloomington.

The first: John's friend Tanner from TTU and his wife, Sara.

They got married at the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel in Nashville.

Tanner's dad is a high school band teacher, but he also plays in a really great band, and they played the wedding. They were amazing! John and I danced until my feet couldn't take it any more.

I wish we could have stayed later and hung out with Tanner and Sara some more, but it was really fun to see them get married!

Next: my former roommate at IU, Sarah Wangberg and Tim Climis, who got married in Bloomington in early July.

The day started with a trip to Upland with a few of my favorite IU people.
[I apologize for how blurry most of the pictures are from here on out.]

Then we headed to the choich.

Sarah looked beautiful in the dress her Mother. Hand. Made. Whew!

Her dad is a Lutheran minister, so he and the local clergy each did parts of the service.


The reception was casual and held at a local park pavilion with lots of family.

These aren't wedding-specific shots, just some pictures John took while we were at the reception.

I'm so glad we were there to see Sarah and Tim get hitched and to have a little IU party with our friends. These were only 2 of the 5 (five!) weddings we were invited to this summer. Sadly we can only go to three total. I'm really excited to see my cousin Halley get married next in just a couple weeks!


  1. Ugh, I love their pictures! Every time I see someone else's wedding pictures, I get that much more disappointed in mine, especially because this photographer was local.

  2. Yeah, their pictures turned out pretty beautiful. I'm sorry that you didn't like yours, and I think I can tell what you mean. It will be interesting to see how my cousin's pictures are from the Chicago wedding this weekend.
