Wedding #2 of 3

My sister and brother-in-law rolled into Fargo Friday afternoon to pick up me up their way to the Bis. We got home that evening and enjoyed a couple drinks with the family at a bar just off the Missouri River. It was a nice night, but a thunder cloud was definitely rolling in. Saturday morning we slept in a bit, grabbed some coffee and lunch, and were on our way to my Dad's hometown.
The wedding was at Mouse River Park in a large gazebo. The weather was nice; sunny but very warm. Something to be thankful for with an outdoor wedding.From there the wedding reception and dance took place at the fair grounds in a quanset about 15 miles away. It was a great night for a beautiful wedding. Here are a handful of photos from the rest of the night.

Very much a country wedding: outdoors, brown suits, quonsets, barbed-wire decorations, a lot of bud light/coors light/keystone and red-eye (everclear concoction) consumed, country music, and yes, the bride did wear her cowboy boots all day long.

Wedding number 3 won't take place until labor day weekend. I look forward to that one, but for right now, I am looking forward to next weekend... first weekend home in 5 weeks!

I was at a wedding in March and the bride had the same dress. Except with a green ribbon.

Looks like it was a good time!

Very pretty...I love wedding cake!! And OMG, the Bride's dress seriously looks like the dress one of the Bridezilla's wore last night when I was watching it! Nothing to your cousin, but the dress has to be the same or at least very, very similar!!

I LOVE the flowers and the whole cowboy boot theme was really cute. The cake was gorgous.

Glad you had fun!
