My big brother is married!

Yesterday I mentioned that we went to Oklahoma to celebrate my brother’s wedding weekend so today I thought I’d share some shots that Christopher and I took! 🙂


This is us in Perkins, Oklahoma! It was windy and SO COLD! It even snowed while we were there.

bride and groomMy brother, Matt and his new wife, Dee! 🙂

xboxThey both really like playing Xbox so Dee made this sign based on the Xbox “Achievement Unlocked” logo. We all started laughing when Matt started puckering up and teasing Dee about not being able to reach him (he is well over a foot taller than she is). Poor girl is only 4’11 and marrying into a tall family.

  1. Aw, how nice! Looks like a really fun weekend! And I`m loving those blue flowers!

  2. Glad y’all had fun! Looks like such a sweet time!

  3. Best wishes and congratulations to the bride and groom! It looks like it was a lovely, intimate ceremony. The funny face picture of the ring bearer getting ready made me laugh!

  4. Fun! Y’all seem like a fun family! I married into a tall family as well! My husband is 6’4″ and considered the runt of his family. His dad is 6’8″ and brother is 6’7. I am all of 5’2″! I am a shorty! How tall are you? Y’all do look like a tall family 😉

    • Oh my goodness! That IS a tall family! We’re not quite that tall in our family, haha! We just look especially tall next to Dee because she’s only 4’11. I’m 5’8, but my little sister is 6 feet tall – you just can’t tell in pictures because she always bends down to other peoples’ levels, haha! My aunt is 6 feet as well and my cousins are well over 6 feet (somewhere in the 6’3-6’5 range). My grandfather was the runt of his family at 6’1. Oh, and my brother is 6’2. But then I have a short mom and one short sister (our other sister is 5’6 so just slightly taller than average). So we have our outliers. 😉

  5. I love weddings!! What a fun time and your family is getting bigger which is awesome! Your brother is TAAALLLLL indeed!
