Spartan Wedding

For the past while I've been mostly casino camping which isn't too interesting but last weekend I attended my nephew Matt's wedding and that WAS really interesting, at least if you're a Michigan State University alum like me (and the bride and groom).

Alumni Memorial Chapel at MSU where the wedding ceremony was held.
I obtained my four year degree in five arduous years back in the mid-70's at Michigan State and the campus has only gotten more beautiful every year since, or maybe I was too young to appreciate it back then.

The Red Cedar River flows behind the Chapel.
There were really cool stained-glass windows within the Chapel that depicted student life and activities around the campus.

This was the first time I had ever been in the Chapel -- really pretty!
After the wedding ceremony the really swanky reception was held in a room adjacent to gigantic Spartan Stadium.

The view from the reception area -- how much  more Spartan can it be?
One of the best parts of the weekend was my daughter Nickelle flying up to East Lansing and camping in the Tank with me and, of course, seeing all her cousins and aunts and uncles.

Nickelle and Spartan!
The reception was awesome and the food was really exceptional.  They spared no expense and even had me meet an old friend.

Sparty and me!
It was a great Spartan wedding and reception and seeing all my family again including my daughter was a real treat!  I know I'll never attend a more MSU-themed wedding in my lifetime.

Go Green!
