Viva Las Vegas

Adria and I recently got back from a trip to Las Vegas for the wedding of her sister Kedra. Adria flew down a couple of days earlier to spend some time with her parents and siblings before the event, and to give her more time between flights between Anchorage and Las Vegas. On one of the nights Adria, along with her parents and siblings got to ride around The Strip in a limo. Below are some pictures from the limo ride:


After I arrived on Friday, we got a tour of the wedding chapel that Kedra's father-in-law runs. It isn't one of the archetypal Las Vegas quickie wedding chapels where Elvis performs the ceremony, The Little Chapel of the Flowers is much classier (and as the website claims is both elegant and legendary).


Here is a picture that I took of Adria and me in the parking lot of the chapel.

On Friday night there was a barbecue for the families of the bride and groom. As part of this barbecue the Davis side had been asked to write and perform a song about the bride and groom and it fell to Adria and me to write this song. We took Chamillonaire's "Ridin Dirty" (and by extension Weird Al's "White and Nerdy") as our inspiration mainly because "Ridin Dirty" is one of the most ridiculous songs that either of us could think of. We got Adria's sibilings to perform with us and our song was well recieved, which kind of suprised us because our lyrical skills (as shown by the lyrics) and combined flow are much closer to Kevin Federline than to Rapper's Delight or O State Ballaz.

On Saturday, Kedra was married. Below is a picture of Kedra with her husband Jeremy:


Here are the newlyweds with Adria's mom and dad.


Later that night they had a wedding reception. Because it was Cinco De Mayo, they had some piñatas made to look like them.


Towards the end of the reception, they took the piñatas and beat them with as stick, which made me think of the scene in Napoleon Dynamite where Pedro creates a piñata that looks like Summer Wheatley.


Here are some other pictures from the reception.
Here is a picture of me.


Here is a picture of Adria's sister Alicia, Adria, Me and Adria's brother Ty
