Andy and Lauren's Wedding

One of the reasons we went to Seattle was to attend the wedding of Andy and Lauren. We’ve known Andy longer than we’ve known our kids and have known his folks and grandparents even longer. Andy spent three summers working for Mike, Mark, and Grampa at Mouser Machine Shop and we just think so much […]

Cathie, thanks for your sweet comments and I hope the B & G see it because they are just what you say. Thanks again for the wonderful time spent with you in Yelm — a beautiful place for sure. Love ya, Mary

Oh, Mary! What a special thing for you to do. I have read the whole thing and poured over the photos 3 times now. Lauren’s use of many varied colors make the photos really pop. We now have your narrative as a permanent record. I am so glad you and Mike were a part of this day.

Thanks Kathy, I loved doing this post in every way. I agree with you in that Laura’s color choices — and that beautiful sunshine — worked together so well!

Mary…WOW! These photos captured all of the sweetness and magic of that day. I love the picture of my brother, too! 🙂 Thank you for sharing! I enjoyed seeing you and Mike!

Thank you Kay Lynn! Got some pics of the rest of the family too but couldn’t put everything on there. I appreciated you viewing and for your comments. Mary

My vote for favorite picture is the one with the bride and groom and moms framed by the colorful fabric flowers. The flowers were connected and the people were connected. It made me feel connected even though I wasn’t there.

I am Lauren’s Aunt Mary. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures. I am going to put them on facebook so everyone can enjoy them. You did a great job. They had the most beautiful wedding.

Thank you Mary, I wish I could put a face to the name … might have met you but there were lots of wonderful people at that wedding!

FairlyCandid.wordpress.com - August 2, 2011 - 7:12 AM

Mine too! Oh wait, I already said that in the post. 🙂

Thank you so much for sharing…wonderful pictures…

You can see Mary’s face in the 10th black and white photo above. And to her left, you will see Lauren’s Aunt Carol. They are toasting the bride and groom.

Beautiful pictures, beautiful people and beautiful day!! I enjoyed your post immensely.

And thank you Barbara for taking the time to tell me. Fabulous wedding you had there!

FairlyCandid.wordpress.com - August 2, 2011 - 1:24 PM

Janet, thank you for pointing Mary and Carol out. I felt badly that I slighted Lauren’s family in this post since I knew the Bettger side so well. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and more importantly for commenting. Us bloggers love that you know. (Wink.) Mary

I love all these! Soooo pretty! What a wonderful theme and setting for a wedding! Makes the church and rented hall I had for my wedding look pretty darn shabby! 🙂

So, I was looking through your posts today and noticed a BSU hat on your grandson and it got me wondering…. do you live in Idaho??

FairlyCandid.wordpress.com - August 3, 2011 - 6:49 PM

Yes, we live in Boise. And you? I think I read one time … was it Utah? If you want to see BSU pics and see how crazy fans can be, go to: http://fairlycandid.wordpress.com/2010/11/09/get-your-game-face-on/

Mary,
These are incredible. Thank you so much for posting these photos and your wonderful narrative. It was so great to have you and Mike there. I love you guys so much. Lauren wants us to print this out and put it in our wedding journal. I said, only after one important correction, I worked at Mouser Machine for 3 summers. Not just one. 🙂

love,
Andy

Hi Andy, thank you for commenting from your “tanned” state no doubt after returning from Jamaica. I’m sure you had a fabulous time. I will get that correction made immediately to give you credit for working at the Shop three years … most people didn’t stick it out so long with the hard labor Gramps expected! Mike didn’t catch the mistake either — young mind vs old mind — you’ll win every time! Love, Mary

Mary, you have such a a gift and it’s so fun to read your blog and see your beautiful photography.
This had to have been such a fun trip and what a unique, lovely wedding!
Thanks for sharing!

FairlyCandid.wordpress.com - August 12, 2011 - 2:10 PM

I appreciate your comment Jeri. I love that you stopped by and welcome your visit any time!

Matt and Lacey say "I DO!"

The wedding we’ve all been looking forward to is now behind us. The bride and groom are now officially on their own and the time they spent getting to know one another will now play out living together. The bride and groom’s mothers will soon have a hobby room/guest room. The check books can be […]

AMAZING pictures and blogging! Thank you so much Mary!
What a treasure to have. It was a fun day, and I am so glad that we got to share it with our friends and family. Whose next?

Aubrey Archuleta - April 13, 2011 - 12:01 PM

Such a beautiful day! I love that you have all those kids & grandkids there now 😀 SUCH A JOY.

FairlyCandid.wordpress.com - April 13, 2011 - 12:10 PM

Thanks Aubrey, and you know I love having everyone here too! And you know your mom is going to miss you guys when you move, right? At least you’ll live fairly close and SW air can have them there in a jiffy if needed. Today is a good day. Smile. Mary
