May 7, 2004

Definitely the best decision I ever made...

(Not the dress, people! NATE!)




Some things I remember:
  • being late to our own reception
  • wearing one of those corset things for some stupid reason and feeling nauseated from it
  • feeling SO glad it was a nice evening for our outdoor reception (May is risky in UT)
  • Nate bringing me breakfast from Einstein's that morning
  • forgetting our marriage license and having to run back and get it (just to the parking garage)
  • feeling incredibly stressed that morning and probably being a little bit of a brat to my mom
  • seeing my sister cry after the reception
  • feeling like the luckiest girl in the world!

I remember the beautiful painting Nate made for you. I remember the Spirit in the sealing room-absolutely amazing! I remember sitting out on the lawn of the temple with my little family waiting for you and thinking how grateful I was. I remember how my girls thought you looked like a Princess, and Nate was Prince Charming! I remember sitting at the top of the yard where your reception was held watching your video and crying through most of it, only to laugh at the part where Nate dropped you and my dad laughed and laughed!

Time sure flies doesn't it. Add two kids and living across the nation, but of course we wouldn't change any of it for the world! Congrats Jess! You look gorgeous in your picture!!!
