Matt and Sierra's Wedding

We have been looking forward to nephew Matt and Sierra getting married for some time.  We got to meet her at nephew Mark and Dean-Na's wedding 18 months ago in Houston.  Over the last few months we have been making our way to the Bay area to be here for it.  The closest option for us was the Trailer Villa in Redwood City which proved to be a great location.

Turned out to be a very good option for us because we were able to host a pre-wedding get-together for family in the area for the wedding.  It was like a "Warner Rally".  We hung out at the RV until more people arrived.
We reserved the campground club house and had a good time over some fajitas and salads and drinks.
The next day, as part of the festivities, Matt organized a golf outing on Friday morning at Coyote Canyon Golf Course in San Jose.  Four foursomes played a scramble with longest drive and closest to the hole contests.  Pam won the closest to the hole contest!
It was a lot of fun and part of a Warner tradition - playing golf with family and friends.  While a the wedding party was at the rehearsal dinner later that afternoon/evening, others of us went back to the RV to hang out some more and eat left overs.
Then a late night chance to get together with some more folks at the hotel after the rehearsal dinner.
Then the wedding at the Kohl Mansion.  It was a beautiful and stately place to have a wedding.   

The Kohl Mansion was built by Charles Frederick Kohl, in 1914.  It is patterned in the Tudor design and built with rose bricks with 63 rooms.   

 One of my favorite pictures or the evening:  Mothers and Daughters
Pam and Kelly   Chris and Irene
The reason we were all there - the wedding ceremony
Then special words, toasts and dinner

Another of my favorites:  My brothers and me
Me, Marty, Brad, Reid
There was a lot of mingling and talking going on throughout the whole evening
Father-Daughter Dance
Mother-In-Law Son Dance
And then the dance floor filled 
The cake cutting
And more photos on or near the dance floor

Nate got his second wind and said, "Sometimes when you don't know what to say, you just got to bust a move…"
And he did!

It was a fantastic weekend and we were happy for Matt and Sierra and really glad we got to see everyone.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Until next time...
