Apparently there were also some serious discussions

Some family pics were snapped around the margarita ball

After dinner, there was work to do.

Justin surprised Maggie and Tiffani by singing  January Wedding at the reception.   Tiffani heard this song for the first time when she was working in Wyoming.   She told Justin and Maggie about the song and there wasn't much discussion about it after that.   The day before the wedding Tiffani and Maggie each asked Justin to make sure that the song was on the play list for the reception.  Justin acted very nonchalant with both of them, not wanting to give up the surprise.

They loved it. 

A good time was had by all...

Farewell to the happy couple!

On January 15th, 2011  we welcomed Maggie into our family and Justin was welcomed into her family.  It was a beautiful union not only of two people but of two families, bound together by love.

Family and friends traveled from near and far to attend the wedding of Justin and Maggie.  The sacrifices that were made by loved ones were humbling and will never be forgotten.   We are very blessed.
Welcome, Maggs.  Better late than never.   : )
