Bridal Shots

A weekend of HAPPY TEARS!

I learned very fast that my tear ducts are working!!!

We took pictures on Thursday at the Temple and it didn’t rain!!! I will only share a few that Rick, Daniel's Dad took. Rick shot about 1000 pictures!! We are super happy with how they turned out! I don't have the photos back from Chris Paxman, I'm sure they are great too!

When Daniel first saw me in my dress... he was stunned... It was the “tenderest” thing! It made me tear up. He looks amazing in his suit!





Some of my fan club! Future Mother in Law, Sherri! and My Mom!
Future Father in Law, Rick and Aunt Mary were also there to support Daniel and I!







My gorgeous flowers! (Lighthouse flowers)

Yesterday, Tava had a bridal shower for me. It was precious! I loved every minute of it! I have the greatest friends! She had everyone go around and share some thoughts. It was a full on ball baby session! All happy tears of course! If I get pictures I will post a few. (Totally felt like a testimony meeting at girls camp where everyone cries) If you were there and didn’t tear up… I need to borrow your skills for March 3, 4, and 5th!

Some of the great advice I got yesterday –

-Enjoy time together before kids

-When kids come put them to bed by 8 and have date night @ home!

-Communicate

-Don’t talk about serious things when tired, hungry, or something else…

(I realized every time we went to look at our registries one of us was starving and super grouchy!)

-Don’t go to bed upset

-Keep God in the center of your marriage

There was lots of other awesome advice too!

Special THANK YOU to everyone who has helped with wedding stuff!!!

Praying for no rain March 4th and 5th! 10 day forecast is looking great! Out of towners check it out! There will be SUN! Amazing!

13 days to live up singlehood! More importantly 13 days until the best day!!

Cute preview of your bridals! I love the advice list. I still like to read through mine from my bridal shower. I just have to say about the "don't go to bed upset" advice though - we've found that sometimes when we're upset the best thing to do IS to go to bed. A lot of times it turns out it was just exhaustion aggravating a silly argument...I don't know...maybe that's just us :D
