12 years ago today, I married the man that at first I deemed unattainable. Too good to be true. Way out of my league.
It was the perfect day. Nothing went wrong, all smooth sailing. If I could go back…I might have changed some insignificant things. Like putting on lipstick before the reception, or wearing my hair all up, choosing different wedding colors/dresses, or searched around for a younger/hipper photographer (there weren’t websites/blogs like they do now). But I can get a good laugh now, and realize all of that doesn’t matter. I had just finished my last final of college at BYU the day before we got married, and my man still had a semester left. I was from Texas, he from California, but so many family and friends were in Utah, we decided to marry there. Unlike my hubby, I remember the little details of that day. All the friends and family that flew in.Those that came in the evening to our reception. Feelings of pure joy surrounded that day. The picture above is the image I chose for an enlargement for my home.
Then I changed it out for this one:
I love that you can see the temple behind us, but mostly that we look genuinely happy. A lot of our other pics are more posed…if only I knew then what I know now. 2 years ago, I contacted our photographer, and was so happy that after 10 years, they still had the negatives! They scanned them on a disc for me for $150. I love having them.
