Adam and Lauren's Wedding

Before I moved to the Philippines, I met brother Bri, Adam, Lauren, Gemma and Ian in Las Vegas... We had a great time and dined at a great restaurant - Boas... So when Adam and Lauren decided to get married, Vegas must have been on the "short list" as was Boas... So this is a little story of Bolo's (Adam was always called by his nephews "Bobo" and with Lauren being called "Lo", Bolo became a natural) wedding in Vegas... It is mostly family pictures, but what a great time we all had, and what a great new family (the Kohlhases) that we (the Coateses and the Kims) got..!!
