Nice Day for a White Wedding

My brother's wedding was beautiful, as was his new wife and the weather in Pittsburgh. Really, we had such a - well - beautiful time.

We arrived at the rehearsal and my brother was decked out in a serious vintage powder blue tux:

Vintage!
His wife didn't know he would show up so spiffy so she was relatively underdressed but elegant nonetheless.

We headed to the hotel bar afterwards and had a few of these (hey, Carrie, recognize this?!):

Iron City Beer

Rock Star and I took a few self-portraits that night:

The next day was gleaming. The wedding went off without a hitch. Nick and my new SIL cut the cake at the reception:

The reception was So Fun. Here's a shot of part of the Insane Cousin Posse that I think captures the mood pretty well:

After a weekend of revelry, some of this had to go down the gullet before I could bear to drive home:

Holiday Inn coffee tastes like a$$

Despite making a wrong turn after dropping Rock Star off at the airport (I shoulda gone west instead of east), I enjoyed a nice sunset in the ridges and valleys of Pennsylvania on my long drive back.
