As far as backyard receptions go, this was the best I’ve seen so far. The time and thought that went into every detail sent this wedding over the top. They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck and I think that’s what Brianna heard all day long. The weather at the temple was beautiful, but the clouds were quickly getting darker. By the time we reached the home for the reception it had begun to rain. The tables were decorated, the lights were strung, and it was time for some family pictures. Then the first gust came and knocked vases and candles over. Then the rain got harder and everyone retreated into the house for shelter. Brianna was so sad as her husband, dad, and pretty much everyone else, continued to tell her that it would clear up and to just keep smiling. Sure enough, as people were about to arrive, the rain stopped.  A rush of neighbors and friends scattered to reset the tables and get the food on the table. We snagged a bunch of group pictures and the party began. And believe me, it was an awesome party.

This middle picture is a great example of a family request that probably only family would laugh at. But in case you have seen the movie Hotrod, Brianna’s brother Daniel is doing the Richardson dance and it cracks me up every time.

Many of you know that my wife does some amazing wedding invitations, but I just had to show this one off. It’s one of my favorites that she has ever done. This heavy stock kraft paper was so cool and the ink was hand screen printed onto the paper. If anyone is looking for a custom and beautiful wedding invitation you should for sure give her a call.

There is nothing cooler than having your grandpa whip out his sax and play some sweet jazz music. He was really good, too.

There are many opinions about dancing and rocking out at a wedding, I have to say I am a fan. If I could do it all over again, I would learn some sweet moves and dance at my wedding. The dancing at this wedding was so much fun I couldn’t resist jumping around a bit myself. I even caught Trevor with Haugen Creative set down his camera and show off his skills.

Everyone wants a unique send off. I’ve seen Harleys, Horses, awesome cars, and much more, but the scene of 50 or more balloons with LED lights in them, slowly drifting off really stunned everyone. I think we all stood there for five minutes just staring. Kyle’s family owns the Zurchers stores and they had this great idea.
