Kaitlyn & Strite Daniels' Wedding 
August 12, 2023

 Back to Home Page

Our niece, Dan Jr.'s youngest daughter, was married across the lake from us in August 2023.  It was beautiful, and I have the pictures to prove it.  
Family: Uncle Timmy, Jeb, Amy, Cooper, Carter, Hanna, Kristi (the one just about to sit down)  The bride arrived driven by her dad Dan in this cool old truck.  As it headed down the hill Jeb exclaimed, 
"That truck has no brakes!" So we were all happy to see them arrive safely.  Kaitlyn's dog Scout was with them. 

This was actually the 3rd location they'd planned for this wedding.  They had one lodge reserved near
the Bob Marshall wilderness, then had to move to a different lodge in the same area.  Then a forest fire
closed that area completely so they had to move the entire wedding 4 hours west to Dan & Tracie's house. 

Is that a proud father, or what?    
Kaitlyn's dog Scout was the side entertainment while the wedding was going on.
He is never far from Kaitlyn's side, but he did feel the need to go take a dip in the
pond, during the ceremony, right behind the bride & groom.  I was just waiting for
him to come back and shake all over Kaitlyn's dress!  
Hunter is a cutie.  He's all boy and very funny! 


Cooper, Carter, Kristi, and Hanna Jeb, Amy, and Eric - wearing his happy face.  
You may now kiss the bride!  A nice touch, they had grandpa Dan come up to give the newlyweds a blessing.  In years past
he has conducted most of the ceremonies for his grandkids, but Lucas did the officiating this time.  

A passel of nephews and a niece - Erik, Cody, Colter, Madison, and her boyfriend Chris. 

Uncle Timmy takes a lot of photos.  He's finally upgraded to a phone, he's used
a digital camera until just this year.  

Nice picture of Dan & Rose

The wedding party.  I don't know the first girl, then Maddie, Kaitlyn's best friend, Ashley, Kaitlyn's
older sister (who got married in this same spot about 8 years before), and I don't know any of 
Strite's groomsmen.  I'm pretty sure the first one is his older brother.  

  Kaitlyn teasing little brother Lane about his height. He will outgrow her very soon!

Kaitlyn with her brothers, Dillon & Lane.  It's very hard to get a picture of Dillon
so this was a big deal!  
Somehow, I doubt this was what Kaitlyn had in mind when she put out disposable cameras... Scout was very much a part of the whole ceremony.  Here he is at the head table. 
Dan, demonstrating how to use the tree stump tables. They were so clever! 
Dan giving a lovely toast.  
Strite's brother gave a hilarious toast that talked about Strite's "irrational confidence" 
he had to pursue Kaitlyn.  

Elderly family dog Bella felt the need to join in on the dance floor.  She's still got it!  

  Kaitlyn was kind enough to share some professional photos which I'll include here. 
  I think Kristi might have taken this one, it's really good!  
 A nice photo of the blessing part of the ceremony.  Daddy-daughter dance

Beautiful photo of the couple with one of their horses.  They met while both were
working as hunting guides in the Bob Marshall wilderness.  They love the outdoors! 

  Costich Lake makes a nice background! 

Family photo, including Scout of course! 

  A great picture of Tracie doing her mother-of-the-bride duties.
