Honeymoon at the Beach

Note: I recently had some computer issues that caused me to rethink how I was preserving some pictures and other items on the hard drive of my laptop. After some thought, I decided to use this blog to record some events that happened before this space was created. However, many of these events occurred before I met Adria so she isn't likely to appear in these posts. You can look at all of these posts by clicking this link here.

For our honeymoon, Adria and I went to Cannon Beach and spent some time at the beach and along the Oregon Coast. One day we took at drive to Tillamook and took a tour of the cheese factory.

Here is a picture that I took of Haystack Rock:



The weather was nice enough that I was able to build a small sand castle.

Our Wedding

Note: I recently had some computer issues that caused me to rethink how I was preserving some pictures and other items on the hard drive of my laptop.

Adria and I were married on December 10th, 2005. Here are some pictures from our wedding day.

The night before our wedding, we had dinner at a Peruvian restaurant in Portland called Andina. My sibilings have known the owner and the owner's siblings since grade school, so they thought that it would be a nice place to have a pre-wedding dinner (and they were right).

Here are some pictures of Adria and me at dinner:


Here are James and Jessica:


Here are my brothers Brad and Jeff:


Here is my Dad with my brother-in-law Jared (my sister Cathie wasn't able to get to Portland early enough to be there for dinner. Jared and Cathie at this time lived in Boston and Cathie is a doctor and had to work):

Here is my mom with her sisters Jolynn, Martha and Nancy (and James is in on the left side of the picture too):


Here are Vanessa and Brad:


In the morning before the wedding, we had a wedding breakfast. Here is a picture of James:

We were married in the Portland Oregon Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Because what goes on inside of temples is sacred, there are no pictures, but for more information about temples, click here.


After the temple ceremony we took a few pictures before leaving on our honeymoon. Some of these pictures was with Adria's grandpa:
