Friday the 14th was the big day.
April had her hair and make up done that morning and then we all drove to Portland.
It turned into a small disaster from there. There were several accidents on I-5 AND it was raining like crazy. Everyone was over an hour late, including us and the bride! But we had decorated the car the night before so driving slow down I-5 was actually pretty fun because everyone waved and honked at us.
Besides the stress of getting there and the rain, I think it all worked out pretty well. Luckily the rain stopped just before they came out of the temple.
Ryan and April are so cute to me. I spent a lot of time with them last Summer before they were engaged and it's been really cute to see them fall more in love with each other.

While we were waiting I had Brianna take a picture or two of us. Thanks to the rain for the crazy hair and I will never know why Jake was the one not looking (he must take after his mom!!).
There's always one picture that makes it all worth it:
Thankfully Brianna took all of these pictures and sent them to me because a few of them are mine and you can tell which ones they are. I need a new lens SUPER bad!! Good thing my birthday is less than two months away ;)
They had a small reception at McMenamins that evening. My sister (Tayne) was able to come so I had an extra great time.
That night we stayed in Wilsonville because we planned on spending Saturday with Tayne.
