10 Jan 2015 - My own progeny on the steps of the Gilbert Temple:
Jacob, Danielle, Dylan, Sarah, and Chris.
When can we count on seeing many of our extended family members? Weddings and funerals, of course! Thankfully, this occasion was a joyous one, that of Dallin and Mariah's wedding!
All the members of the Bride's family who were at the temple to celebrate with them!
My sister Karla, with her daughter and newest son-in-law.
Karla with 9 of her 10 children, plus Dallin (Josh couldn't be there).
The siblings look on in horror at this public display of affection!
Mariah with all six of her sisters:
Elyssa, Gabrielle, Brianna, Mariah, Celesta, Genevieve, and Addison.
Seven sisters on Mariah's wedding day!
(With a photo-bomb appearance by Lila...)
The Bride and Groom with two of Mariah's three brothers:
Jeremy, Mariah, Dallin, and Julien.
The Bride and Groom with Mariah's oldest sibling, Jeremy, and his family:
Lexi, Cami, Makayla, Jaren, Analyce, Braxton, and Jeremy.
The Bride and Groom with Mariah's second-oldest sibling, Genevieve, and her family:
Jaycee, Genevieve, Lila, Brooke, Max, and Scott.
The Bride and Groom with Mariah's fourth-oldest sibling:

The Bride and Groom with Mariah's fifth-oldest sibling:
Celesta, her husband Riley, and their new little guy, Levi.
The Bride and Groom with Mariah's sixth-oldest sibling (Mariah is #7):

Mariah and Dallin with all 14 of their Brinkerhoff nieces and nephews!
We got in on the photo session, too! Left to right:
Danielle, Mary, Jacob, Mariah, Dallin, Dylan, Sarah, and Chris.
My brother Jeff, his ex-wife Dana, and several of their children were there at the reception that evening, and now I'm kicking myself for not thinking to grab pictures of each of them as we visited! But it was so good to spend time with them!
Karla, Jeff, and Mary.
Our brothers LeRoy and Darryl weren't able to make it, but
all three of us Butler siblings who are currently single were there!
(This was after the reception, after 10:00, and we were worn out!)
Next up: what we did for six hours between the temple and the reception!
