One Down, Three to Go!

Well, we did it!  We all survived Paul and Nicole's wedding!  In fact, it wasn't just survival--we had a wonderful, beautiful day.

They were married at noon in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple.  In spite of the 100+ temperatures and the temple being covered in scaffolding on three sides (plus the spire!), we had a great time with our FABULOUS photographer, Vell.  (Check out his work at Vellvet Images).  We got some great photos outside the temple, and then dragged our starving selves to Olive Garden for a delicious wedding luncheon.




 (FYI--Olive Garden was THE BEST place for such an event.  Affordable, delicious, and the staff was amazing).


 
And then, the reception. Oh!  The reception!!  Nicole picked out the MOST beautiful place for the reception--it was just lovely.  Flowers, trees, fairy lights, family, friends, and a brand-new married couple.  It was just a perfect evening.  My congratulations and deep appreciation to Nicole and her Mom and Dad for putting on such a great party!!


























Now the lovebirds are off honeymooning, and we're all recuperating and eating lots of delicious leftover cake.  It really was the most perfect day, and I'm thrilled for my boy and his beautiful bride.

And now I am a mother-in-law.

The reception was beautiful! Being a mother-in-law is a great thing. Tricky at times, but mostly great!

You will seriously be an AWESOME mother-in-law...although, I have a hard time believing that you are old enough for that. ;) The pictures are gorgeous, your boys look oh so handsome in their tuxes, and it looks like a BEAUTIFUL wedding. Congrats to you for making it through everything and being there for them every step of the way!!!
