My Life

Wedding Photos!

This was right after our ceremony at the LDS Temple, so lovely.

He loves soda.ย I figured it was a good enough excuse to allow a Crush. {I don’t have photos of it but Christian hosted his own separate party in the house. We hired 2 fabulous girls to keep the kids happy, busy and well fed so that all of their parents could enjoy the dinner without having to get a sitter! I think the kids LOVED it and so did the parents!}

One of my closest friends Megan photographed the event. I was SO glad she was there because she did an amazing job AND because she refused to let me shirk away from all the memorable shots. I am love the photos once I have them but I get soo lazy about taking them! She is in the Gallup, NM area. {her website}

Nick picked this outfit (good job huh?). He is obsessed with Jordan’s.

My dinner: Candy, popcorn & a roll.

How do people get through life without sisters?

My friend Chantry did all the decor and flowers. I asked for Shabby Chic/ Pinterest and it turned out perfect! So sweet and vintage looking!

She is in the St. George, UT area so if you’re smart you’ll call her to help you with your wedding or event! {801.860.3480} {website}

My Mama did the cake, she’s good at everything. Oh, and she’s a total babe:

{proof pudding}

I sang him “Feel’s Like Home” while my bro in-law played guitar.
I was SOO nervous so my voice was super shaky but the song meant a lot to me and I really wanted him to know how I feel about him and how happy he makes me.

I think my dad liked it too, he’s a total softy.


Best day ever.

    Lovely! And some great genes in that family! Looks like a wonderful day was had by all… and your groom reminds me somewhat of a younger David Arquette. Which ain’t a bad thang!
    And yep.. sisters are great..I have 4 of them myself.
