Photos: Jordan P Photography (she is amazing!!)
Four years.. time goes by so fast! I am sitting here in disbelief that it has already been that long. Just yesterday, we had celebrated the new year of 2013. January 2nd quickly came and I remember driving that morning to the Salt Lake Temple. I don't think that morning it had really hit me that we were getting married! Walking into the temple, it was probably the coldest day of the year. It was FREEZING! I don't think it was over 20 degrees that whole day. After getting ready for the sealing, Zack and I were able to spend about 30 minutes together in the celestial room of the temple waiting for all of our guests to be seated. That was such a peaceful time were we were able to talk about literally everything. As we were walking into the sealing room, it was overflowing with loved ones and friends. I was overwhelmed with the love that I felt from not only everyone in the room, but my heavenly father. I had never felt so much at peace than I felt that day.
Our sealer did an amazing job. He said many things that to this day I will never forget. Zack's biological mom had passed away when he was 13 years old. He had said that she was there and so happy about our decision. He also had told us that all of our children were there and celebrating. I remember bursting into tears! (It was a good thing I had eye lash extensions!!) That day was one that I will never forget. We had photos outside of the temple with all of our friends and family that had come to congratulate us. Did I mention it was freezing?! I still will hold every image so dear to my heart for the rest of my life. Especially those of our families. We lost Zack's step mom Lisa to cancer about two years ago. I will always have these photos to tell my children about the amazing nana's that they have in heaven watching over them.
Our reception was everything that I had ever dreamed. We had it at Wheeler Farm! I wanted lights every where and both our families made it happen! They even figured out a way to drape the fabric over the whole reception. It was gorgeous! We had so many different kinds of soups which was perfect for such a cold day. We even had our favorite bread sticks from Little Ceasars! For desert we had all different types of cakes people could eat. We had so many people we love come and support us! I love being able to remember this day through all of our amazing photos Jordan took.
Thanks for stopping by and walking down memory lane with me!!
Happy New Year and have a fabulous week!
