Alex and Ivan, A Grand Canyon Wedding

         "We are gathered here today at the edge of this beautiful, giant and seemingly endless gaping throw two of our favorite people, Alex and Ivan, over the edge--and into an even more majestic and important gaping hole that some... decided to institutionalize and call marriage.

         Ivan, Alex, you two could not be more ready for this wide open, giant, gaping, step in your lives... My Two Favorite Texans-- hearts of gold, dachshunds of the many shades of---dachshund, and so many other meaningful adjectives, descriptions, memories and inside jokes that comprise a proper wedding ceremony. 

         You met each other in high school--although only Alex remembers that part... let me rephrase. They had Gym Class at the same time. Alex used to watch Ivan from afar in a totally uncreepy way while he did push-ups and jumping jacks and-- just a freshly born bead of sweat would glisten just enough off of his forehead to catch Alex's gaze as the drop slowly descended-- 

          Sorry. They met in high school." 

          Ivan's college best friend, Andrew, became ordained specially to perform their wedding ceremony. Immediately, we all knew he was going to make this moment light-hearted and enjoyable! And their entire weekend was like that! 40 of their closest friends and family flew in from Texas. They eased into their weeding weekend by staying in Sedona. Grandeur Point was the perfect spot for these two. The entire wedding party hiked the 1.6 miles from the South Rim to the spot where they would vow to be each others forever. A few minutes to grab some husband and wife pictures, and these two walked hand in hand the 1.6 miles where they were all transported back to Sedona. Wedding dinner waiting upon their arrival, it was the perfect no-stress, low-key wedding that perfectly suited them!
