The Happiest Day of Our Lives!

05Bridals-90.JPG

And one we most certainly will never forget!

Everything seemed perfect that day. Like we were dreaming the entire thing.

For 24 hours, the world smiled and everyone was happy.

Not a thing was out of place. And we got to spend each moment surrounded by those we love.

On my way to marry Jace, I couldn’t believe how lucky I felt. I found the man I’d spent my entire life searching for! And after today, he’d be mine forever.

09.15.18 will forever be the happiest day of our lives!

Let’s be honest, I spent the entire sealing ceremony crying my eyes out. I was just so happy!

But just look at him! Look how unbelievably handsome that man I can now call husband is!

The minute we stepped out of the temple, we were greeted by a crowd of friends and family!

Followed by lots of hugging, happy tears and photo ops.

Sharing a few of my favorite snaps from the temple grounds below. Meaning, I’m really trying to keep it to a minimum, I promise!

Can we talk about how beautiful these florals are? My incredible mother (probably super woman) designed them all! Okay lets be more real, she designed my entire wedding - so thank you mom! You are absolutely amazing! Thank you for making my special day so pretty!

I mentioned just a few favorites, right? Trust me when I say I narrowed them down! Our photographer was everything we could ask for + more.

Alright, who’s getting antsy to fast forward to our ring ceremony + reception?

Let’s run that way . . . Shall we?

Truth: I booked this venue before Jace and I were even engaged that’s how badly I wanted it!

We converted this white industrial style “barn” into a minimalist’s DREAM.

I love this photo of my mom prepping the little ones on how to walk down the isle!

So perfect.

My one wish if I could somehow have it different, would be to trade Jace places up front.

That way, I could have watched these little flower girls looking so pretty coming down the isle sprinkling the room with peddles!

And look how beautiful my bridesmaids were walking down the isle with Jace’s groomsmen (sorry spouses)!

And then for the happiest moment of my life.

Because by now, the jitters have sided. And I can really focus on me and Jace. On us forever!

Exchanging vows was the most magical experience.

I just wish we had written pages and pages of them, only so the ceremony could have gone on longer!

I wanted to live in that moment forever.

I can’t even tell you how happy I was listening to the man of my dreams talk about our future life together.

He made me happy cry (again for the one trillionth time that day)!

We snagged a few photos before the guests arrived. Just look at this wedding crew!

This photo is everything!

All of our nieces and nephews looked so cute in the wedding colors!

My sister designed the little girl’s dresses, and my mom of course made the flower crowns.

Give me all the small handsome boys in suspenders!

A little memoire of my grandparents. We chose to get married on their same wedding day!

Can’t get over their cutest cake toper and my grandpa in his army suit.

Paired with a hand squeezed Sicilian pear lemonade!

A huge thank you to everyone who made this night come true for us!

Especially my beautiful mother who worked tirelessly to pull this dreamy day together for the two of us.

Also, our amazingly talented photographer Bri who captured every detail!

We are eternally grateful for you all!
