Arizona Trip: Part 5

The wedding.  

Heather looked...breathtaking.  Her dress is what every bride wished theirs looked like (myself included), her hair was soft and romantic, her make-up enhanced her natural beauty.  Travis keeps talking about how good John's suit looked, so together Heather and John made a stunning couple.

Here are some pictures from the reception:

 Out-of-town Aunties.  These fabulous women (plus Uncle Kent) came down from Idaho and Utah to celebrate with Heather.  It was fun to have a few people that I knew there!

 Audrey and the candy table...

 Trav with his favorite (and only) brother, and Janae.
 Janae did all of the floral arrangements for the wedding (including bridal bouquet, corsages, and boutiniers (my spelling is WAY off, but the spell check suggestion to correct it was butterfingers...so..yeah) , Travis and Jared hung the lights...
 John did the writing, amazing write (haha)?

 The cake cutting.  I was the self appointed photographer for the reception (much to John's annoyance haha),  although my photographer skills are extremely limited to...none...I did manage to grab a few shots that made me proud, the cake cutting series being my favorite.  

 Here is the back of Heather's dress if you are like me and were interested...
 Janae said after this picture was taken "Oh, I look tired, but I guess that is appropriate!".  Janae worked SO HARD on this, she spent months gathering ideas, vintage pink glass (which included a nail biting bidding war on ebay with none other than her own sister!), etc.  She did Heather's wedding hair, she made her wedding jewelry (which looked awesome by the way).  The weeks before the wedding were intense and long for her, but she did a great job! Everyone at the venue (that worked there) kept coming up and complimenting all of the different elements.  Everything turned out awesome!!
 I am pretty sure that John's brother did this, but whoever it was...such a cute idea!!!
 A random picture from the temple with Heather and John's sisters.  Gorgeous, right??
 I was so privileged to be involved with some of the elements of this day.  It was so special to see Heather and John in the temple being sealed for time and all eternity.  It was exciting helping her get into her wedding dress and primp her hair, touch up make up etc.  My favorite part of the day was when John saw Heather for the first time in her wedding gown, I may or may not have shed a tear (or more).  Pure and perfect love.  John is an awesome addition to our family, and I could not be happier for both John and Heather.  Love you guys!!
