Richie, a law school buddy, got married this weekend up at the Canyons in Park City. It was fun times. The ceremony was awesome and the reception was a ton of fun. Renee looked beautiful and they both seemed very happy.
Another bonus of the wedding was getting to see lots of peeps from the various eras. On Friday night (after a leg ripping scooterpace session with el canid), the hubs and I made our way over to the Yohnson-Gammons for a derishous dinner. Hibbs and Lindsey (aka the Meltronome because she is probably the most perfect skier we know) were in town from Fresno for the wedding. While it was no yurt trip of 2008, it was still a pretty damn good time. The hubs and I are a lot older than most of these kids but we sure do like to hang with them.
Francescone (Mrs. J-G) is expecting. She is the quintessential cutest pregnant lady ever! We got to listen to some exerpts from her labor sound track--which is best described as "yacht rock."
As Hibbs said, I would love to see the look on the delivery doc's face when he comes into the room to hear "Sailing."
The uber bonus of the night was the arrival of the lego maniac (and co-owner of penfifteentees). He is one of the good ones and was also in town for the wedding from the Treasure State.
Saturday morning the hubs and I made our way up to PC to Rick and Lizzie's. We did a great ride with Rick and then met up with Lizzie back at the ranch to get ready for the wedding. Lizzie had gone for a big mountain bike ride with Abby so we got a little visit with Ms. Mini G as well.
Prior to the wedding, we stopped at Laura and Rodney's condo for pre-wedding happy hour. It was a good kickoff to a GREAT night!
The handsome hubs, driving.
We had a super fun time with Laura, Rodney and Shane. Laura is a rock star.
CUTIES. I think they were making out in the back seat when we weren't looking.
After this stop, we made our way to the gondola at the base of the Canyons.
Lizzie and I were laughing a lot. We were heartily enjoying our beverages. There *may* have been some accidents.
Handsome men on the gondola.

As we dismounted the gondola, we were instantly greeted by a beaming Richie and his best men: Sturges and THE JUSTINO (another law school bud). YO JUSTINO! So great to see these guys.
We got ourselves some good seats and the beautiful ceremony commenced. The hubs and I actually did a reading for Richie and Renee. They gave us some awesome cowboy poetry to read during the wedding. We really got into it, making sure we had some cowboy hats and other props. And I cultivated a good rural twang from my previous week down in Wayne County so we tried our best to make it authentic.
After the ceremony--we made our way to our table--the Ocho (we were at table 8). We got to sit with the young crowd and had such a great time. The food was awesome, the company was stellar---we are honored to have been included in the celebration!
The reception didn't suck either. Lake Effect made sure that we tore that dance floor a new one. I am their #1 fan! WOO HOO Lake Effect! I LOVE those guys!
We somehow made it back to Rick and Lizzie's where we passed out.
The next morning, the hubs and I woke up about 50 hours after Rick and Lizzie (we need our beauty sleep). After a 5 star breakfast, we headed out on another great road ride. I got some great hang time with Lizzie and the hubs and Rick definitely got in a good manly hammer session. The hubs and I rode into the sunset (in our car, back down the canyon) with big smiles on our face. It was a GREAT weekend with wonderful people and super fun activities.
Congratulations Richie and Renee!
