they did it! they tied the knot. both were emotional and so happy the whole day. two families are merged and are excited to get to know each other even better!

kim (the matchmaker!), mikey and mike sr.'s brother, bob. confused yet?
sienna was so excited to see grandma come out of the temple. she's always talking about how she's going to marry her good friend, max, in the temple. this whole temple marriage thing made a lot more sense to her that day, as she compared it to her future marriage to max. she stayed quite close to grandma most the rest of the day. she is grandma's biggest fan!
during a short interlude, this happened with these two...oh me, oh my. i love my brothers.
the beautiful bride and me.
poor sienna, she was still not feeling one hundred percent. she'd had a fever early that morning, even. dang sinus infection! but thank goodness for motrin! seeing grandma made her feel better.
oh owen. my other awesome brother.
derek meeting two of our new brother and sister (step-brother and sister, but i won't call them that. sounds too evil), jim and kari...and jim's wife, andrea.
