For the Waldie family, August 10, 2012 will always be a date to remember. It was the day five of the eight Waldie siblings said "I do" in the Mesa Arizona LDS temple.

About 1500-1800 announcements went out, each personalized for each of the five couples. Several of the guests got invites from all five of the Waldie children. The mega-reception was held in an airport hangar museum, with each couple having a different section of the hangar.

"You can see everybody's individual tastes, so they did a great job," said one guest.

"It's been fabulous," said father, Doug Waldie. "We're happy, we're thrilled our kids are happy and it's as good as it gets."
