Wedding The First!

The weekend after Ella was born, my niece, Amber, and her betrothed, Dan, were married in Las Vegas.  Since Las Vegas isn't too far from Salt Lake City - just down I-15, you know - those of us that weren't in far-off Caribbean islands or dealing with newborns were thrilled to attend.  Son Sean flew in from Detroit and I picked up almost-daughter-in-law, Jessica, in St. George, and we headed to Sin City.

We met up at McCarran International to do some rental car adjustments - turning in for Sean and adding Jess to my rental agreement so she could drive back to Salt Lake.  I think that after a couple of weeks apart, these two were glad to see each other.

We had a nice lunch, did a little shopping, checked into the hotel, and headed to The Springs Preserve for the wedding.  We arrived a bit early and had time for a bit of a walk-around before the ceremony.  The Las Vegas Springs Preserve is remarkably wild for this urban area, and marks the site of the first settlements along the Virgin River in Las Vegas.  The Springs Preserve is a lovely site featuring many attractions, particularly sustainable living and intriguing desert flora.

It was a beautiful sunset wedding.  Wasn't Amber a glamorous bride?  And the best part was visiting with family and friends we hadn't seen for a decade or more.

One of the really fun things about this wedding is that Amber and Dan have a really fun sense of humor.  Their theme for the wedding was robots, and many of their guests dressed up as robots for the reception.  It was a super fun evening, and though I didn't get ANY photos of my own, we had a really great time.
