Photo Review: Wedding #1

We sometimes joke that this road trip is actually the wedding tour of the United States.  We currently plan on attending 4 weddings this year, 3 of which are in the next 5 weeks.  This weekend was Jay’s brother Nate’s wedding, which was held at the Cutler Plonkin Jewish Heritage Center in downtown Phoenix, right next to the Burton Barr library where Jay’s mom Cindi use to work.  The venue was lovely, they had great weather and it was a nice gathering of family and friends to celebrate their big day.  Here are some of my favorite pictures from the rehearsal dinner (at Jay’s parents house) and the main event.
