From the moment I saw the detailed, handwritten placards and the homemade dance-floor and barn facade, I knew this would be a backyard wedding to remember.  Chelsea, who currently resides in Austin, had done her research and knew that it hadn't rained in Stevenson on June 22 in seven years.  That streak continued....barely.

Surrounded by their closest friends and family, one could easily see how well this couple worked together.  Even Jon's father eschewed the usual toast only to profess what everyone already felt: "It was about time."

It's always magical to see two people and two families become one and this was no exception.  Congrats Jon and Chelsea!  Enjoy Hawaii and here's to many more epic ping-pong matches!
