Our friend for about eight years, Logan, married his fiance Brooke on Friday. We met Logan through Ben, and have been great friends ever since. Logan is a great friend, and he is always willing to hike or bike with us, or just hang out on a Saturday night. He met Brooke about two years ago and they have been inseparable ever since. Logan asked Brooke to marry him right before Christmas last year during one of the worst snowstorms we had all winter. Logan said they didn't know if they were going to make it to the restaurant do to the snow, but he was determined, since he'd already dropped off a beautiful bouquet of flowers a few hours earlier and the plan was already in place.
So, last Friday, after months of planning, Logan and Brooke tied the knot. E and I were there along with most of our friends. Ben and Jo, unfortunately couldn't make it. The ceremony was great and Brooke looked awesome. After that we enjoyed the patio while the wedding party was whisked off to take pictures. Dinner was fantastic, we had sole in hollandaise sauce, roasted potatoes, ravioli, yummy rolls and a great salad. After awhile, the reception started and more guests started to show up, along with a lot more food. E and I snaked on chocolate dipped strawberries, mini pizzas and fruit while we chatted with friends, danced, and tracked down the happy couple to tell them congrats. It was a great night.

After I finished this post, I got started thinking about all the fun things we've done with Logan and Brooke over the years. Here are a few of them:
Lots of parties at our house. Dinner, drinks and games too.
Hanging out with Ben whenever he is in town.
Joining Logan and Brooke for their annual Halloween murder mystery.
Biking Deer Valley.
Backpacking Southern Utah.
Biking Moab quite a few times (here, here and and even here).
