Wedding Bliss

Adam and Brittani were married in the Salt Lake Temple (on September 19....I'm really late posting this one!). The ceremony was so amazing, I cried so many tears of joy! Adam and Brittani are so well matched and are so happy together. I look forward to getting to know Brittani better and to seeing the great things the two of them will accomplish together!

This picture is with Jon and Will at the reception. Because I was in charge of decorating the lunchoeon, I was too worried about everything to take pictures. I'm sad I don't have photos of my family at the luncheon where we were all together. My kids didn't go to the reception; Wesley and David went to the BYU game and the two little ones only made it past the family photos, I then took them back to Grandma's.

Everyone looked so beautiful in their black and white attire!
The luncheon was held at UVU. Here is (a poor) picture of a sign I made for the luncheon I also decorated 16 tables and made a display table for the entrance. I was so thankful to have Tanya's help setting everything up; she's such a decorating genius! I began working on the decorations in June-it was so fun to see it all come together. They used many of the decorations at the reception, which was at the White Willow reception center. What a beautiful day it was!!!

One week later I was able to fly to St. Loius to be at the wedding of my cousin Joe Wittwer and his beautiful bride Katy. I traveled from Rexburg to Orem, slept at my parents, then went with them to Salt Late, flew to St. Louis, stayed there for about 15 hours and flew back...It was a very long journey and well worth the effort! It was great to be with the Wittwer and Keller families and to see Joe so happy. Katy, a darling girl and wonderful addition to the family, was beaming through the whole ceremony(which was held at a lovely old Unitarian church in downtown St. Loius). Unfortunately, my camera was lost so I was not able to take my own photos!
What a wonderful month for marriages!!!!
