W E D D I N G P A R T 1

Well, we have officially been married over a month. I haven't really talked much about our wedding day yet, I wanted to wait for pictures! The wedding day was totally surreal. I am not sure what word to use other than that. It honestly was like it didn't happen, it was so dreamlike. Apart from about twenty minutes where I had a nervous breakdown because my Dad went missing for a minute, it was a really relaxed day(for me at least). My favorite part of the day other than the obvious getting sealed was when I got in the car and we drove away...hahaha! That sounds so mean, but I don't mean it be. Just the feeling of all the stress that I went through planning the wedding and making sure everything was going according to plan and then getting in the car and knowing it was over was the absolute best feeling in the world.
So, here we go!

We were over an hour late coming out of the temple so my photographer had tons of time to take pictures of the pretty Temple grounds! 
Real moment: I am on the edge of a breakdown here because a girl and her new husband PUSHED past us so they could go out before us, then we had to wait fifteen minutes before we could go out. I was so annoyed! And then trying not to be annoyed because it was my wedding day. 

Guys, I loved my bouquet but I really wish someone would have been like "Ok, put that thing down now" it seriously was in like every single one of my pictures and it was always in a weird spot! Haha!

I die.
Codi has some classic faces in a lot of our pictures...

My sisters and I are all so identical!

Isn't Mark's Mom so beautiful? Also she has the best skin in the entire world. I don't know why I feel like this is relevant to mention.

After everyone left and it was only Mark, the photographer, Nikki and Delci and I, I got SO giggly. Like I just realized that the bad part of the day had already happened and so we could move on.  

Can I add that his ring is wood? It's totally awesome, everyone is obsessed. He gets asked about it more than I get asked about my ring.


*Squeals more*

Getting married in the spring was just dreamy. The Temple Square flowers were at their peaks, ya know? Just everywhere! It was so perfect, minus the fact it was so windy and on the edge of rain. However it held off until me and my dress were safely inside!
Speaking of, I actually kept my dress on after the pictures and walked full on in my wedding dress to the parking garage to get my car. Everyone was staring. I didn't know you were supposed to change after pictures, no one informed me! So my dress was basically filthy when I got to the Gallivan Center haha, oops!
