A Texas Wedding

Ok, I am a bit slow in posting this, but this is from the weekend of May 14th through the 17th.
Ronnie and I flew out of Atlanta to Dallas, TX, and made the 2 hour drive to Longview, TX. The reason for our trip? My niece (Ronnie's sister's oldest daughter) was getting married on Saturday 05/16. The last time we went to Longview was for Thanksgiving. Also, the younger niece gave birth the day before Thanksgiving to a beautiful baby boy.

So, there isn't much to do in Longview. It isn't geographically interesting, it looks a lot like Georgia. I prefer the Hill Country part of Texas or even West Texas. But going to see family makes the trip well worth it. While some people don't care much for their in-laws, I love them. I felt like I was part of the family straight away.
But, here are some highlights from our trip and the wedding:
(Some of the photos were taken by me, other were taken by various people at the event.)

My niece Jeanna (the bride) and her daughter Lexi.

A look at my outfit

I am usually the one behind the camera, so I don't have a lot of photos of myself, but I think this is a good one.

The girls acting tough, and the men holding the flowers.

The ceremony

Look closely, and you will see he is holding a ring pop!

So sweet...

My wedding gift to them: Custom koozies!

And they lived happily ever after...

The End.
