My cousin got married this weekend. I love family weddings. Especially ones like this one that had so many great things about it.
First of all, there was this adorable little church in an adorable little Iowa town on a perfect autumn day:

And then there was the ceremony - officiated by my cousin's husband (does that make him my cousin-in-law?) When he was done, he said, "...by the power vested in me through the state of Iowa and the world wide web, I now pronounce you husband and wife."

And of course there was a beautiful bride and her handsome groom:

And the bride's colors were purple and white so I was in love. Because purple, especially this beautiful deep shade of it, is my favorite. And speaking of purple, the bride and groom were transported in style to the reception in this beauty:

The reception had everything it needed to be a success:
There were pretty candles and chocolate kisses all along the tables - and a good looking young man thrown in for good measure:

There was a handsome guy with his adorable daughter:

And there were a couple of cousins who don't get to see each other very often, but have fun together when they do:

And finally, there were lots of wonderful family members to hang out with:

Congratulations to Jason and Michelle!
