From the Bride:
How did you and your spouse meet? Dan and I first met floating down the Provo river – with our dates.. The next time we met, we were both single, visiting a mutual friend in the hospital.. 1½ months later we officially went on our first date!
The Proposal: Dan planned a triple date with my two best friends for all of us to go golfing. (So I never would’ve suspected a thing!) On the 8th hole at Bountiful Ridge golf course, right when the sun was setting, the views of the entire valley opened up, he pretended to hit a ball into the woods. (Our friends had played on so they were on the next hole.) Dan led me down a rose petal path to a blanket with bubbly, roses, and chocolate covered strawberries.. It was there that he got down on his knee and made me shed a tear with his tender words, then asked me to marry him. It was that moment that any doubts or fears vanished and I was like a giddy school girl saying yes to the man of my dreams. Awhile later our friends rushed back to celebrate with us and take pictures. I was on cloud 9!
Did you do a First Look before the ceremony? We did our “first look” up at Snowbird.. I loved it!! It was just our moment. It’s a little different when you get married in the temple. For us, to be able to be up somewhere that was special to us, with an awe-inspiring setting, it was perfect! We got to take all the pictures we wanted without being rushed to get to the reception or wedding day events.. We had a blast, made a video, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
What were some personal details you incorporated? We had lawn games to play, as well as pedal boats for our guests, and my favorite was that we left in a canoe all decorated with candles, a “just married” sign, and fireworks shooting above us by Ryan Money.
Moments I loved were: The temple – it was incredible; tears, joy, love… overwhelmingly perfect! The wedding dinner had such precious moments with loved ones sharing – definitely good laughs, and lots of tender words.
What you would have done differently, if anything: Danced more and eaten the reception food!
Any advice you have for future brides? Remember that people wont know what was “missing”, don’t stress it – especially on your big day! However it looks is perfect and so enjoy it! You can laugh at any mishaps later, I promise.
