Catching Up: Wedding Day!

My parfait.
On April 10th we were married.  We got engaged in 7 weeks, but had a 6 month engagement.  It felt like it took forever to get to April!  That winter in Idaho felt especially cold and dreary---I was so glad to see it go.  April 10th was the last day of Winter Semester at school.  I had barely finished taking my finals the day before, and was busy trying to get my apartment clean so that I could check out of housing.  The next morning, my cousin Jamie came over to my apartment to do my hair while my sister ran to McDonald's to grab me a yogurt parfait and orange juice.

Like I said, Jamie came over and did my hair.  She did such an amazing job!  I was so happy she helped me out.  When I asked her to do my hair, I gave Jamie a few pictures of what I was looking for.  Here were my ideas:

Jamie kind of combined the two looks and my hair turned out like this:

Didn't she do an awesome job?!?  I think so.  I loved my hair.  Thanks Jamie!!

After the craziness of the morning, Paul picked me up and we headed for the temple.  I wore a black and white dress to the temple but forgot a slip!  Needless to say, I was a little uneasy that morning!  It was windy and....things could have turned out badly.  Thankfully, all went well.  

After being sealed in the Rexburg Temple to Paul, we came out for pictures with family!  It was a happy day.

This was kind of a candid shot---I found that candids usually ended up being my favorites!

This is my FAVORITE picture from our wedding day.  We walked across the street from the temple to the university gardens and took pictures.  I especially liked this picture because, on our first date, Paul and I sat on this swing and talked for almost an hour.  It was a great night and meant a lot to be able to take a wedding picture in this spot.
