You guys! Where should I begin?!
Our day was truly perfect! From beginning to end and every detail in between was amazing!
We scheduled our wedding ceremony to start at 5pm! Which made the anticipation crazy! Forget butterflies, I had a parade in my stomach all day long! However, I had the whole day to pamper and be pampered! I started with yummy breakfast with my family, then I went to get my nails done with my sisters, went to my hair appointment, went back home, started getting ready, and my mom did my makeup. It was perfect!
My dad picked me up and drove me to the ceremony spot: The Provo Orchards! We were jamming to
ColdPlay on our way there and more specifically: Sky Full of Stars (the stars aligned for this moment).
We arrived at the Orchards! We lined up to walk down the isle and our song started:
Come Away With Me by Norah Jones Instrumental/Piano Version! Yup I walked down the Orchard isle to that song! We've always had a sweet spot for Norah.
The only thing I wish I would have done differently was having Chris face his back to everyone until I got up there so that *I* could see his "First Look" Reaction but his face was still pretty priceless when I looked up!
We started at 5:30 and the ceremony was done by 5:45! When I said we wanted a very small, private, and short wedding... We were not kidding. We asked our bishop to go straight to marrying us and he did! It was the best! Seriously, no regrets!
Oh yeah.... our wedding arch tried to blow away, so our dads stood up and held it down throughout the rest of the ceremony. NBD!
Right after the ceremony & hugs, we started family pictures and then bridals. We were done by 7 and off to dinner!
The Wedding Dinner
We celebrated our wedding at La Jolla Grove, Provo Utah. It is one of my favorite restaurants so we booked one of their private dinning rooms. After dinner, Chris and I had our first dance right then and there. Our first dance was to Northern Wind by City & Colour.
After our first dance, we had cake!!! We were so excited about this. We requested our awesome cake artist a white cake with raspberry frosting and Dulce De Leche filling! She said she couldn’t make any promises but that she would try her hardest and just surprise us either way! When we cut our cake, it had Dulce De Leche filling! I guess you can say, this was the equivalent of a Gender Reveal Cake to us !!! We were thrilled! And it was truly so delicious. Ugg I can still savor it.
.....It's the little things!!!
After cake, we were off to a weekend in Salt Lake to kick off our honeymoon before we left to St.Croix, Virgin Islands for A WHOLE 2 WEEKs!
