The day of our wedding was FLAWLESS! That morning my parents Matt and I were all driving up to the Bountiful temple, my parents were telling us about there wedding day and how thing after thing kept going wrong... and the only thing I can think of that went wrong is my uncle from out of town forgot his church pants (but no fear my aunt Suzanne and uncle Bradlee stepped up to the challenge and found him some!) I will never forget the feeling sitting in the celestial with Matt just talking about life and making plans and such (it was also the longest wait ever! Knowing all our friends and family was waiting for us in the sealing room!) But the sweet old lady soon came and got us and took us there, when we walked in the room was FILLED with our family and friends- no joke that thing was PACKED! We felt sooo loved, there was even many more people we wish we could have invited to attend. My grandpa Craven got to preform the sealing, and it was beautiful! I don't remember everything but I do remember balling my eyes out. My mother n Law explains the wedding as "the heavens were truly opened" and that is so true. My uncle Donlee came up after and gave me 2 huge hugs and said " the second one was from grandma and grandpa" I know they were there right by our sides, what a blessing it is to know that families are forever and we can be close to those who have passed on in the temple. That morning was difficult for me knowing that they wouldn't be there, but I felt them when we walked in and I know they are watching us from above!The temple is such a powerful place- seriously don't miss it for the world! Jillisa and my mom helped me get all beautified again and it was time to go see everyone else... we were seriously blown away at the amount of people that came to support us on that special day. Chelsi had mentioned that she had never photographed a group that big before!
Matt doesn't know what he got himself into... hehehe
After all the pictures we headed to a church in Woods Cross (Amanda and Marshell live there so they helped us get a church! Thanks guys!) for our luncheon. It looked beautiful and we had even more people there that were not at the temple... I am serious when I say we were sooo blessed and LOVED everyone that came! We had planned our wedding just in time too so that some of my out of town cousins could make it! It was so fun to see everyone, even some I haven't seen in years! Red Flame catered our lunch but my moms AMAZING friends Bonnie and Denise served it and made everything go by perfectly! We had a small program with Amanda and Marshell singing their song they wrote for us! (I have to get a hold of the video recording from that day then I can share it!) Matt and his dad and brothers sang, and we had some words of wisdom from our grandparents, and parents!
Mindy and my cousin Jenifer made our cake! They did SUCH a good job!!Thanks!!
all my AMAZING aunts and uncles helped keep the food stocked! :)
The night was perfect!
I love how Matts hands are IN my mouth! He said he was trying not to get any cake on my dress... what a gentlemen! haha
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGrfLQVVI8A anyway we wanted to learn the dance and so we did, every night before we would all go home we would watch this and practice the dance (it had been a while and we didn't have Shakira with us so we didn't remember all the moves...) But it was fun to do it all together again! If I can get that video too ill post it.
our hotel was beautiful! and it was all inclusive- perfect!!
We had a shopping tour one day...
most the time it was about 110 degrees and 100% humility... it was HOT!
We even went to Chiten Itza (spelling?) One of the 7 wonders of the world!!
and swam in a Cenote where I was forced to face my fear of fish and swim with huge catfish...and you can't really stop swimming cause this water is like 118 feet deep or something like that... hahah
Thursday came so fast and it was time to go home..
We got back late Thursday night or I guess you could say early Friday morning... hahah We stayed that night at my parents house, woke up early packed the cars and everyone caravan ed up to Inkom for our second reception that night. Everything was go go go but we got the church all set up and looking beautiful!
Amanda and Marshell sang their song again!
Just watching the show! :)
Love, the Hunts! :)
PS. who's gonna have to use it?! I didn't! :) The race is on!
