my wedding

The day I married my way hilarious and sweet husband was the best day of my life. We were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple, which I'm pretty sure is the most beautiful building in the world. After the ceremony we got to spend a few hours in our fanciest clothes hugging and kissing in front of a camera. Then we took a ride in Daisy, a blue 1937 Buick. She doesn't go fast enough for the freeway so our driver, Sam, took us the long way home and we got to just hang out in the back seat with the windows rolled down, reflect on the promises we had made earlier that day and talk about our future. It was truly perfect.

Venue: My momma's backyard. 
Decor: Vintage couch found in local classifieds. White milk glass vases from thrift stores and antique malls. Picture frames borrowed from own collection and found at thrift stores. Strings of lights borrowed from my mom's Christmas decor box.
Food: Cake and Pie bar. Pies lovingly made by my Mom and Aunt, ahead of time. Ten-inch cakes from the Lion House Bakery. Main wedding cake from Schmidt's Pastry Cottage in Salt Lake.
Flowers: Mother-in-law is a florist! Scored them wholesale and she arranged them all for us.
Music: Ipod playlists we made ourselves. (We loved doing it that way.)

I planned everything myself and I was so happy with how it turned out, although to be honest I couldn't have cared less about any of this party stuff on the actual wedding day. I was too distracted by the fact that it was my happiest day to notice the centerpieces or the food. However, having these photos to look back on always makes me so happy and reminds me of how beautiful that day was in every way. My two amazing friends Ceebee and Kate Osborne Photography are to thank for the photos.
