For those of you following this blog, you know that back in June I traveled to sunny California to witness the beautiful nuptials of my little brother and his love, Amanda. While the wedding itself was small and intimate, and the wedding dinner was amazing, they wanted to be able to celebrate with the rest of their friends and family back home in Minnesota, so they threw one heck of a party at the Metropolitan Club at Target Field in September.
Amanda and Jeff Reception

One of the highlights of the reception was seeing a video of Jeff & Amanda’s wedding on the Jumbotron at Target Field.  Jeff had rented a high-tech professional video camera while we were in California and had a few other cameras set up as well.  He worked his videography magic and put together an amazing video of the event.  Read this post on his blog for more info! PS, if you don’t follow Jeff’s blog, you really should! He has been blogging for 11+ years.  He also has a new travel blog, Jeffsetter.com
Here is the short version of the video but you should also watch the longer version if you have the time!

Long version, It is almost like being there 😉

I could go on and on about the awesomeness of Jeffanda’s reception; the food and desserts were amazing, some of the best wedding food you could have.  And they had an OPEN BAR (anything goes!) the ENTIRE NIGHT (6pm-12am).  This mama-to-be didn’t touch a drop of alcohol, of course 😉

The best part of the reception was the fact that tons of my family members on both my mom and dad’s sides were able to make it!! I LOVE my family and feel so blessed that it is so big.  My dad is from a family of seven siblings and my mom a family of eight siblings.  Not everyone was able to make it but there was still a great turnout, especially the Sauer side.
I will start with photos from my dad’s side of the family since I hadn’t seen them since Heidi & Anthony’s wedding back in June.
