The Drysdale Wedding.

I spent last weekend in Minnesota celebrating the wedding of my cousin Amanda to Cody.
 
I flew into MSP late Friday night, and flew out early Sunday morning so I was really only there for a day.  But we made that day count!  Mom, Lindsay and Henry flew back to and met up with the rest of our family on the Clancy side. 
 
Clint had to stay home since the ranch is fall calving.  :(  We missed him!
 
Prior to the wedding festivities, the Clancy cousins who weren't in the wedding headed to Surly Brewing.  Because who doesn't love a little pre-funking and an {Ag Tour} all rolled into one?!?

My cousin Alicia had scoped out the brewery prior to last weekend and learned they were giving tours of the brewery that day.  So after tasting a couple of their beers - they served 8 oz glasses, which was great for sampling - we headed into the brewery to learn about the process.
 

 

 
Then we headed to the church for family pictures (can't wait to see the Clancy Cousin Stack!) and the wedding ceremony.  Amanda and Cody are two loving, light hearted and funny people and their wedding totally was a reflection of themselves.
 





 
Even up to the "selfie" they took at the altar after they were pronounced husband & wife!!!
 
 
 
 
And one with their awesome pastor (and personal friend) too!  :)
 
After the ceremony the newly named Mr. & Mrs. Drysdale had a fun reception at the church where friends and family could visit as everyone went through the reception line.  Aiden & I took our chance to continue his selfie-fame, since he had so much practice at Ryan & Kellie's wedding earlier in the summer before we cheered the bride & groom on as they left the church.
 
 

 
After Cody & Amanda made their getaway in a cherry red Corvette, we headed to the hotel bar and cashed in on our free drinks from the hotel (the wedding party did too) before heading to the reception in the Earle Brown Heritage Center that was connected to the Embassy Suites where we were staying.

PS - RAVE reviews for our hotel this weekend.  If you're ever in MSP, this is the place to stay!
 
The reception was fabulous, dinner was delicious, the dueling pianos were SUH-WEET and all of the Clancy clan had a great time celebrating the newlyweds.
 












We were ready for the Dollar Dance!

Look who caught the bouquet!

Congratulations Amanda & Cody!
 
 
I wish you all the best - marriage is awesome & you two will wear it well.
 
Love always wins.
