Voodoo Wedding

My nephew got married today - at Voodoo Donuts here in Portland!  What fun it was!  Introducing Derrick and Tish - newlyweds!
Tish's brother drove up from California to attend the wedding and to give her away.
The donut shop owner is actually legally able to marry you!
He is quite the showman!
Here it is, all legal and I was an official witness!
Our son Travis came and brought our 2 little grandsons. They had a great time!
Caleb and grandpa. 
Lots of donuts ready to sell! 
Official wedding donuts. :-) 
Wedding guest donuts. 
Derrick has a titanium ring and Tish's is a big sparkly one!
The boys got to play pinball machines for the first time!
We all then drove to my sister's house for a wedding reception BBQ!   
We helped the boys climb up on this low hanging oak tree branch.  :-)
My sister baked a pineapple upside down cake.. Dayle had a slice, it's a favorite of his. 
I brought home a box of these.. for investigational purposes.. to check and see if their famous maple bar with bacon on top is really as good as they say.. :-) 
I'll let you know.. we just shared the big glazed donut... and it was good! 
Tomorrow morning at 10 am we'll have a houseful of people as the 4th of July Parade goes by at the top of our road - it starts at 11.  I will take photos and show you what our "small town" parade looks like.  ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  8. How extraordinary!Congratulations to the Happy Couple.Looks like everyone had such fun. Was that a Scotsman cardboard cutout lurking in the corner of the second pic? Beautiful Bride and Very Handsome Groom. Happy Independence Day to you.

  9. What a fun wedding it must have been. So lovely and casual at the Donut place and the home bbq looked great too. They say you learn something every day .... I've never heard of donuts with bacon on top !! The donuts over here are always sweet - especially so if they're from Crispy Creme. Oh yum .. I shouldn't be thinking of these things. Have a great 4th July.

  10. Amazing! I just loved the photos of your wedding party and it was fun reading your blog. I would like to plan my wedding in the same manner as I liked you wedding idea a lot. Have a happy wedding!
