21 July 2009 - 9:48pmWedding and Honeymoon

, ,

Joelle and I got married last weekend!  Those that were there know that the ceremony and reception went really well and that everything turned out great.  The day went by so fast that we don’t even remember it all that well.

On Sunday morning after the wedding, we flew to Colorado for our honeymoon.  We spent the week hiking and rafting in Rocky Mountain National Park.  The weather was perfect and we had a lot of fun.  We took a lot of pictures and posted them all online at http://picasaweb.google.com/bennettj1087. When we get them, the wedding pictures will probably get posted there too.  Eventually, maybe we’ll get ourselves a decent camera and start taking more pictures and posting them there as well.

We opened our wedding gifts and cards this past Sunday with our parents, sisters, a cousin, an aunt and a friend.  We got a lot of good things and a lot of money and are very thankful to everyone for the nice stuff they got us.

At this point, I’d like to take a moment to mention one particular gift that holds a special place in my heart.  Ryan and Pat purchased for Joelle and I a Blendtec Total Blender. This is one of the coolest things that I would never have thought I’d ever get as a gift. We bought some ingredients when we were out shopping last night and made S’more milkshakes.  The blender is pretty awesome and works really well.  I’m looking forward to making more things with it.

  4. Congratulations Justin!

    Really nice pictures – looks beautiful there. I am glad you said that it wasn’t an easy time, at first I was feeling old, thinking “that looks like that would be tiring”. I really like all of your and Joelle’s funny and descriptive comments.

    You guys look like you are so in love.

    All the best to you both.

  5. Congratulations! The best to both of you!

  6. I’m glad you like the gift. ;-D

  7. Congratulations on marriage. Just stumbled upon your blog looking for calendar plugins for the Church’s WP blog. Thanks for the one you worked.

    Marriage: It’s serious and wonderful work with wonderful blessings!
