My niece got married a few weeks ago so I flew into Colorado for the occasion. It was my first time back in six months.
Sara was a bridesmaid and Sammy was an usher. Sam flew in from Phoenix with his girlfriend and I finally got to meet Sara's boyfriend, Jeff. It was the first time we were together in a very long time and we made dinner at Sara & Jeff's my first night back in town.
Of particular interest to me was my nephew's first girlfriend. They'd only been dating a little while and it was already turning out to be a bittersweet story since she plans to attend college in another state.
I snapped a bunch of traditional pictures, but managed this one when the wedding party moved downstairs to dance.
They're both shy, sweet kids. She's into jazz, he's into dubstep. She hasn't seen any of the movies he talks about and she's still a little angry with him for getting a good grade in a class he never seemed to study for.
I've been back a couple of weeks and asked my sister how they were doing. She said they'd broken up a few days earlier and even though it was a forgone conclusion, I felt a little sad when I heard the news.
