A Swine Flu memory

This was all Aunt Mar's doing.

She designed masks for the bride (her niece) and groom "commemorating a swine flu outbreak during their nuptials." Must be the way they do things in Texas :)

Aunt Mar's son apparently got a little carried away by this idea.
Here's some other great pictures she took.

This one belongs on a wall somewhere.
Thanks to Aunt Mar for taking these pictures. Actually she is Karen's aunt, not mine, but we all called her Aunt Mar since that is how Karen always referred to her.

The beautiful Rich girls. Stacy, Karen, Marilyn.
I know Stacy looks really young,
but she is actually Karen and Marilyn's Mom.

So glad we have this shot of Karen's Great Uncle Newell, and her Great Grandma.
Along with Karen and Aunt Mar.

As Aunt Mar puts it, "There's the famous waiting on my wife look! And they had only been hitched for less than 30 minutes at this point. (Hee, hee!) Truthfully though, I think he is more than happy to wait for Karen."

The newlyweds are back at Provo as of today, getting settled into their first apartment!

Welcome home to the newlyweds! Welcome to their life as man and wife! How sweet!
These pictures were great, and I agree about the black and white print! It belongs in an art/photography show!
Thanks for sharing, this post put a smile on my face! Your family knows how to have a good time.

I love all of these pictures. You got to love Aunt Mar's sense of humor. What a memeroy to have.

I love all the pictures. They should get that black and white one enlarged and hang it somewhere and also see if any magazine would want it.

Cute pictures!! I love the black and white picture!! Hopefully Tyler and Karen will send a picture of themselves in their "newlywed" apartment.

Jill said...

That's what I'm hoping too!

What a great-looking couple, and I love the swine flu pics...especially the bug-eyed one!

Wedding photos are beautiful, too.
