I think that my hubby really is the best, and apparently his friend Dwight thinks so too...he asked him to be his best man at his wedding! What an honor! This was Craig's first experience as a Best Man, and I think he did a fabulous job!
Sam's maid-of-honor, her twin sister, was just a little bit shorter than Craig.
The wedding and reception were held at the Temple of the Performing Arts in downtown Des Moines. Such a beautiful place!
Craig gave a funny speech at the reception about the ways that Dwight has changed since meeting Sam. Using an idea from a friend's wedding we went to a few years ago, he handed out keys to several ladies before the reception began. Then during his speech as he was describing Dwight as "quite the ladies man" in the past, he instructed the ladies to turn in their keys since Dwight is now a married man. It was very funny the first time, and very funny again, as young ladies, and old ladies, got up to hand their key to Dwight. It's a fun surprise to the groom too! I would have taken some pictures but I, of course an easy target, had a key to turn in!
The Best Man Speech. Even though this shot is so far away, I love the detail of the room it shows.
The wedding was a lot of fun, and it gave us two date nights in a row!
Dwight & Sam, we wish you many years of wedded bliss!
