Arizona Part 1: The Wedding

Been slacking this week, we got back Tuesday and I have been draggin with jet lag all week (and catching up on work).  Big week this week at work, found out I am at the RCA Dome all day game day (Colts v Steelers) for pre and post shows, so there goes the weekend (Should be fun).
Anyway here goes our actions (pics to follow):
We arrived on Friday after an uneventful flight from Indy to Dallas to Phoenix.  We got to Dallas 45 minutes early thanks to a nice tail wind...we check and could have made an earlier flight but the airline said our bags were going on the later flight so we would have to wait at the airport for our bags to catch up.  So we stayed the 2.5 hours and enjoyed some lunch (Texas BBQ) and got into Phoenix right on time.  we get to baggage claim and wait as our luggage does not show.  We go to the counter and ask about our bags when they tell us that they arrived on the early flight (arrgggg!!!!).  We get our bags and rental car (2006 grand Prix) and head to the hotel.
That night we enjoy a Guam BBQ with fresh fruit, meats, veggies and some things I cannot pronounce but tasted damn good!!!  The families meet, make merry and generally have a great time meeting new people and catching up with old friends and family.
Saturday was a whirlwind.  We hit the Tux place to make some corrections (my shirt sleeves were 3 inches too short and the jacket was 3 inches too long, duh!!!) and then make it back to the hotel in time to get to the Botanical Gardens for pictures.  Side Story:  On the way back from the Tux place my brother (the groom) borrows my phone and tries to find a limo for the evening, very funny but then again that's my brother!!!!
The ceremony went off without a hitch.  The bride was beautiful and the groom handsome, the service was done outside on the side of a mountain with cacti and desert in the background...
The food was incredible and the booze free flowing.  We all got a little 'happy' and enjoyed ourselves.  Highlight was of course the Chocolate Fountain for dessert....AWESOME.
As for the family, my boy looked smart in his tux, as did I, and the wife was beautiful in a fantastic dress, hair done up and killer shoes.
A great time had by all....
