John David & Karen


I have known John David since the fourth grade, and on July 1st, he got married! Karen was the lucky girl (and beautiful bride.) I hadn't had a chance to meet her before the wedding unfortunately, and I was REALLY looking forward to it. Weddings aren't always the best place to meet the people who are actually getting married, but when I went up and introduced myself, she immediately knew who I was and gave me a big hug. Good job John David!! The wedding took place in Karen's hometown of Nazareth, TX (population somewhere around 350 I think), and it was a good ol' Texas country one. I had more fun than at most of the weddings I've been to. My family - Jonathan, Dad, and MomThis is my best friend from grade school Mandi and her husband Joe. Mandi has known John David even longer than I have. I think she may even have had a little crush on him once upon a time in 3rd grade? How things have changed!! Mandi and Joe with her mom Mimi and stepdad Dick.
OK, this is the beginning of what was by far the craziest thing I have ever seen at a wedding. In Nazareth it is apparently tradition for a new husband to push his new bride up the one hill in the town in a wheelbarrow, so here is everyone on their way to the bottom of the hill....And there you have it....The Grand March, which I had also never done before. I had to set down my camera and join in eventually because I just love to dance!!This guy lost a bet. I have no idea what it was....
