Our Wedding

Our wedding was amazing. Truly. Nothing went wrong. Everything was very, very right. It was a beautiful day. I felt like a princess. I hope that I have many memories to cherish forever.

I don't have our professional pictures back and I don't even have the pictures that others took with their cameras, but I did send my two cameras around (mostly with C and my brother, S). Here are some of the ones I loved (in random order) to help document this best day of my life:

This is my cousin, B, and me. He is the cousin closest in age to me and we have always been close (just not in height!):
These next pictures are of my family outside the temple. This first one I included because it is the only one where you can see the six of us and the temple in the background.

This is my family...My brother J, my brother A, my Mom, ME, my Dad, My sister S, and my brother S. Because of missions and other events, we haven't all been together in years. Although it was brief, it was awesome!
My sister is one of my best friends. She is amazing in every way. I may be older, but I look up to her a lot!
I have a couple of the kids playing games, I guess while we were having our pictures taken. Loved them. :)
These are my Texas friends...A, M, T, CK, ME, S, Q, J, and A. I am so grateful for the sacrifices they made to be there. Some have since moved from Texas, but they still have Texas running through their blood. :)
As we got ready for the parents' picture, someone snapped this shot. I loved the look on our faces. There is love (and a little humor) there.
Wow! Isn't J handsome?!?
This picture brings tears to my eyes every time I see it. It was the first time I saw K after the wedding. You can just see the love we have for each other. Also...note the CAT machine and torn up dirt in the background. The temple grounds were being torn up. Didn't matter. What mattered is the ceremony inside.
Again...I kept this in to document the dirt. Part of our story. :)
Loved the temple in the background, just over my hair.
Whatever it was....we found it funny!

The Happy Couple.....and we are soooooooooooooooo happy!

This is my dear friend, S (Another one from Texas, but no longer in Texas). She couldn't make it to the ceremony, but we got to see her just as we were leaving. I am so glad. I love her.
So...There you have it. A beautiful day. Again, so blessed. I am happier than I probably have ever been. So blessed. Truly, after the tears comes the joy. Happiness follows sorrow. I can testify to that. :)
