No pictures from the temple portion of the wedding, as Mr. Brooke and I had to motor out of there to pick up the girls from Denise, who so very kindly watched them during the ceremony.

My family is very low on the number of people who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, so I was interested to see how it was handled with this wedding. I really liked the idea of the bigger ring ceremony; it really seemed to smooth over a lot of ruffled feathers and allowed those who couldn't view the temple ceremony to have a chance to participate. Mr. Brooke and I opted to not have a big ring ceremony at our wedding (so long ago...), but I think I will go with the bigger ring ceremony when my own children get married.

I cannot believe my little cousin Bobby is a married man. He and his wife will head back to BYU-Idaho in January. I think I've officially entered the realm of "getting old." Oh well, that's what we're here to do, right? :)

  1. hey for those of us slower-minded folks in the audience (you know you love us!) could you please explain the "bigger ring ceremony"?



Comments make me happy! Thanks for sharing!
