R+J Wedding

Ryan and Jackie have officially started their happily ever after! Thanks to my willing sisters and their husbands, Eric and I were able to attend the wedding. We started the day at the sealing ceremony at the Mount Timpanogos Temple. We never got the camera out of the car, so we don't have any pictures of the temple or the happy couple coming out afterwards. Just trust me that they looked happy (and beautiful)!

Then it was a change of babysitter and off to Sundance for the reception. Again, we left the camera in the car for most of it, but I did manage to get a few pics before the night was over.

The weather was gorgeous, as was the venue! We caught up with some old friends, had yummy food, enjoyed a rare occasion without kids, and got to take in all the joy and happiness that goes along with weddings.

I loved the decor for their wedding. On the sign in table, they had a wedding portrait of each of their parents on their wedding days. To sign in and leave a message for the couple we had to use a typewriter. I loved the center pieces too! They used mason jars with flowers, origami swans, and fortune cookies. Love it!

We're so excited for Ryan and Jackie! In a week or so, they're off to Penn State for Law school. We sure are gonna miss them!

Thank you for the picture! I love seeing Ryan and Jackie - they look so happy - yea for Ryan! It's also fun to see Z and you guys! I love the setting and how the outdoors is the main decoration! The mason jars are great! It's a really nice, intimate reception. I wish some of us from Texas could have also gone.
