My Uncle Kelly (the less handsome of the two in the pic above) got married the beginning of Sept. and had a reception this past weekend in the small, but beautiful town of Dunsmuir, Ca. I wasn't going to miss this event for the world. Kelly is one of my best friends and one of those kind of people that would give you the shirt of their back. It was great to see him and his awesome wife Jasmine. We are excited to have her in our family!
The reception was great, I spent a good deal of my time interviewing people at the wedding on camera to get advice for the newly weds. Also, there was some fun dancing that went. I was also exposed to the art of burning sage. Now, if you have never smelled burning sage, it smells an awful lot like marijuana, so for a while I thought I was at a hemp fest and I started to worry about getting a contact high and my future in my church, until someone told me later that it was sage. I thought they were lying until I looked it up on wikipedia. I guess sage is to marijuana what O'doul's is to beer!
I spent most of the time with my mom (in glasses) and aunt (black shirt). They are a lot of fun and made the whole trip great. They even bought me new clothes to wear because they didn't like what I was wearing. Eventhough I am 26, my ego isn't big enough yet to let my mom and aunt buy clothes for me (or maybe its because I am a broke grad student). Unfortunately, my wife was not able to attend the festivities due to work and school, but she was there in spirit.
Congrats again Jasmine and Kelly!!!!
