On Saturday, January 11 our youngest son, Chris married his fiance, Bri at
The Lodge on Mt. Charleston outside of Las Vegas.
I feel very blessed to say Chris' Uncle John (from Washoe Valley) performed the ceremony. He just seemed like the perfect man for the job since he was involved with the engagement. Chris and Bri were staying at his home for the weekend when Chris asked her to marry him at Lake Tahoe.
Bri is an animal lover and works as a vet tech. Her dog, Titus was the ring bearer and did a great job.
Chris and Bri wrote their own vows. The words that came out of my son's mouth were pure love and poetry. Who knew that was in him! Many tears were in the eyes of the guests at that point. I think her expression in the photo says it all. (She swore she wouldn't cry...but she did)
This is me...mother of the groom. I made all the floral arrangements, bouquets and decorations.
I used pine for all the greens since it was a mountain wedding.
What a great looking bunch of guys!
Scott (brother and best man), Chris (the groom), Chris Russell (best friend), Charles (cousin)
The happy couple!
