Another Biaett Wedding - YEA!!!

May 14th – off on our summer adventure;-) 

First stop is Solvang, CA for a wonderful event – cousin Galadriel and Jeff’s wedding!  They planned an action packed three days for all their guests – AND an absolutely BEAUTIFUL wedding.

Thursday began early with a naming ceremony for their adorable little son - Graysen  Oliver -  followed by a wine tour all afternoon.  The day was topped off with a welcome reception at Pea Soup Anderson’s where all the families got to meet and mingle.

Friday was the BIG DAY.  Events began at 5PM with a beautiful outside ceremony in the Fountain Courtyard of Hotel Corque.  Galadriel was a beautiful bride, of course, with all the grace we have come to know her for.

Do you take this.... let's party!

While the wedding party was off taking pictures, the guests were having a few cocktails and taking their own pictures!  The entire attending Biaett clan was NOT to be outdone ----

OK..we will.

Bethany thought a serious photo was in order...

She, or course, couldn't stay serious for long.

This wonderful evening was capped off with a lovely dinner and dancing;-) 

The Mother-son dance.

One more event before we all headed home – breakfast at Paula’s Pancake House on Saturday morning.  Even the younger (or at least more energetic) crowd, who were celebrating until the wee hours of the morning, managed to make it.   After breakfast Galadriel, Jeff and Graysen left in their decorated mini-van;-)

Gathering for breakfast.

Just married and already in a mini-van!!

Even with all these planned activities we managed to have a few ‘cocktail hours’ at the Bus with Mom, Barb, Dodge and Jeanie – a couple rounds of golf – sightseeing around the area – and dinner at a couple of the “Sideways” restaurants;-)

Enjoying Solvang.

(BTW – for those at this wedding, you MUST rent/download/get a copy of Sideways and watch it!!  We did this last night and had a blast seeing all the places we just ‘visited’ in the movie.  LOTS OF FUN;-) )

Galadriel and Jeff – we wish you the best for a long, happy, healthy life.  AND, thank you for providing the ‘excuse’ for the family to get together.  Everything was wonderful – THANK YOU WITH LOTS OF LOVE –

Elizabeth and Gary - off and running
