Mr. and Mrs.

This weekend was a big one for my family.  My brother married his "love and best friend" on Saturday.  It was a great day of celebration and fun.  We are so excited about having Kenna in the family. 

Per tradition, my parents hosted a rehearsal dinner on Friday.  We spent that afternoon putting together party favor boxes with mints in them and decorating the tables. 

Then that evening we had dinner catered from Philip and Kenna's favorite restaurant, Amerigo.  We had salad, chicken penne pasta, and duck and sausage bowtie pasta (apparently, it's better with angel hair but they don't use that for catering jobs). 

Then we had tiramisu for dessert.  It was good...very rich and I thought that the tiramisu here was a bit better. 

The next day turned out beautiful and HOT!
However, I think Philip and Kenna are quite happy to be husband and wife. 

The bride's cake was strawberry and white.  They served this with forks. 
What's with that?!  The groom's cake was caramel...YUM!!! 
They tried to do the fork thing again but I convinced them that they needed to use their fingers.  :-) 
At the end of the day, they drove off in a pretty cool ride to start off a pretty cool ride in life!  Congrats Kenna and Philip!  Love you!

Oh my, they look like they should be going to a prom, not getting married. So young!
