Well the wedding day, what can I say? It was freakin awesome. We got married at 10:30 and I swear it was the fastest ceremony of all time. We were out of the temple so fast, that some people hadn't shown up yet because I told them we wouldnt be out until 11:15 or so. Boy was I wrong! Anyway, it went perfect and quick, just the way I like it.
After the wedding, we had a luncheon at the chuch by Sean's familys house. It turned out soo awesome! There were little purple elephants on all the tables, yummy sandwiches from Sensuous, and tons of delicious salads and desserts. It turned out so awesome.
The reception was held at the Utah County Courthouse, and can I just tell you that I almost passed out when I saw how beatiful it turned out. My friend Lee, and her mother Linda, did such an unbelievable job. I wasn't allowed to see it until it was all set up, and let me tell you it was worth it. I was blown away at how beautiful it was. I didn't have much time to look around though because I had to run up and change to get ready for the ring ceremony. It turned out absolutely perfect. The flower girls, Kayla and Ireland looked so adorable in there cute little dresses and the ring bearer Beau, was so stinkin cute in his tux. My dad teared up as he walked me down the stairs and gave me away, and nothing felt better than seeing all of my friends and family there with me on the best day of my life. We exchanged our rings that Beau carried in the cutest little birds nest and then immediately formed a line and greeted all of our friends and family. The reception began shortly after and we were amazed at how many people showed up, and even traveled very far distances to see us. It meant so much to us both.
I don't even know how to explain how grateful and blessed I feel about this whole wedding. Sooo many people helped us out in so many ways, and I don't even know where to begin. All I know is that if you are reading this post, you are one of those that I want to thank. A special thank you to my dear friend Lee, and her mother Linda, for working endless hours with out sleeping to make the flowers and decorations absolutely perfect. It means more to me than you will ever know.
I also want to thank my mom and dad, for paying for this wedding and helping get me where I am today. Thanks for putting up with me and always trying to make me as happy as possible. I have the best parents in the world. I have the best family and friends in the world! Thanks Maddie for all your hard work on the pictures, and the guest book. Seriously, they all turned out so incredible and I will cherish them for the rest of my life.
Thank you Amy, and Bev, for flying all the way out here to be my bridesmaids! You guys didnt have to do that but it means soo much to me. Thank you so much Beth and Zach, for working on the music and entertainment for the dance party! It turned out soo awesome and I had a blast seeing everyone get their groove on. It was fantastic. Thank you Tara, for waking up super early to do my hair, and attending to it every few hours with extra bobby pins and hairspray. You rock! Thank you Lindsay, Penny, Dallys, Kinz, Grandma, Noelle, Kylie, Kellie, Hannah, Helen, Cecile, Britt Britt, and Sean's family for all your help that day.
Gaylon and Vicki, the dinner that we had the night before at Chefs Table, so was perfect and sweet, and I will never forget it. The luncheon was great. Thank you for putting that all together and accepting me into your family. Thank you Amanda, for helping me with all of the hair flowers and making them so beautiful. You are so talented, and I hope that someday I can be as good as you with lots of help and training :) I can't wait to work with you! Thank you Jason, for all of your help with getting our apartment ready and everything else.
Man this doesnt even begin to cover all of the people that I need to thank, and I am so sorry if I forgot some, but have no worries, I will be working on thank you cards in the next little while, so you will get thanked! I love you all!
Anyway back the the reception, it was so awesome and after we cut the adorable cake, that had the 2 cutest glass blown elephants on it. Sean found them online and had them sent all the way from Russia. My friend Lee turned them into the "bride and groom" and it was the cutest thing I have ever seen. I have them sitting on a shelf now. We toasted with Dr. Pepper, and then had an awesome dance party. After that we threw the garter and the bouqet, (congrats Sam and Tara! ) then we got changed and headed out. Bubbles were blown at us as we ran to the decorated truck. We were sent off with a treat bag of all the yummy desserts from the caterer and headed up to Midway to stay at the Zermatt. The next morning we ate breakfast at the cute little cafe there, and then headed to Vegas! I will post more about that later! Here are some pics from the reception, just several or the MANY pictures taken by my sister Maddie.
