As I've been thinking about what I wanted to write about Proctoberfest, I remembered that many say "a picture is worth x words" (the x represents an unknown quantity due to the on-going debate about how many words a picture in actually worth). Thanks to our aunt Joni and a few other friends with an eye for a photographic moment, we have many great photos to share. The challenge I have presented for Proctor's Type is to select 25 of these photographs and create a top 25 list to encompass Proctoberfest. I will try to get as many attendees as possible pictured, but if you do not see yourself it is nothing personal, we still love you. Also the "rankings" of the 1-25 are not ranking people but the pictures themselves. Without further ado..

The cake tasted great.
I am the luckiest man in the world.
|A hell of a performance|
In a performance that will never be forgotten (unless you drank too much at the reception), your's truly pulled out the classic "Jesse's Girl" with some modified lyrics (Proctor's Girl, get it?). Many seem curious, Enes seems unimpressed, Lanna seems hesitant, Blake seems more excited than anyone and Kevin now has a piece of video he can cherish forever. Just remember, a little showmanship and alcohol can cover for any voice, no matter how bad.
Proctoberfest, the previously blogged about beer created by Groomsman Buddy, was a huge hit. I also think the 7% ABV loosened quite a few guests up.

These days you can not have any type of photo session without a "Euro pic". Luckily for me, Ben has a slammed VW with a cold air intake and a manual transmission. Combine that with my Euro pose and you can not say anything except this photo is Euro as hell.

Mary is the perfect flower girl and the daughter of our awesome friends Mike and Sarah. For those of you planing your own weddings, no you cannot use her.

Our church Crescent Hill Presbyterian is a beautiful building right in the heart of Crescent Hill. There are many scenic shots to be had, but nothing compares to some bruhs heading down into the hole.
