Johnson - Siefken

Our friends Tripp and Carly got married Saturday the 24th. Sarah and I assisted Carla Blanchard taking pictures for the wedding. Lots of people braved our "beautiful" North Texas weather to see the wonderful ceremony at the North Chapel, Sheppard AFB. Despite the closing of the Main gate, a nasty wreck just in front of the chapel, the roof partially blown off the Hospital Gate shoppette, and 50+ mph winds, the ceremony kicked off right on time. Glenn Balsis officiated the wonderful ceremony and things went off without a hitch.

After family pictures, everyone headed over to the Howard Johnson Plaza for the reception. At the reception, everyone donned their dancing shoes after a wonderful meal and wedding cake. Tripp showed off his line dancing skills and helped get everyone into the party mood.

Tripp and Carly changed out of their wedding clothes and prepared for the big getaway. After their farewell, they ran through a line of sparklers and drove off for their honeymoon in Montego.

We're still processing the hundreds of photos taken, but here is a slideshow of the day. I couldn't decide on the sappy love song version or the more upbeat version, so I'm posting both. Keep posted, pictures of the entire wedding will be posted soon!

Sappy love song version.
