Let me tell you. I did not plan this weekend the best. Friday I did a wedding till 8 pm, and didn’t leave Cedar City until after 9 pm. I then drove from there to Bountiful that night, not arriving till about 1 am, got up at 4:45 am and left after getting ready to make it the rest of the way to Logan where this amazing couple was waiting for me. After, I drove to a place near Roosevelt, and did another session and drove back to St. George that night (run on sentences I know) ;). So like, 15 ish hours of driving if not more. Holy moly I was tired but it was SOOO worth it.
I had never been to the Logan Utah temple. It is seriously just like a castle! The feeling you get when you walk on temple grounds is so peaceful and calm and inviting it was so incredible. We started early in the morning, and these two were dressed up in their amazing attire ready to show off to the world that they were getting married! Can I just tell you that they make my job way to easy? I never ever have to tell them to gaze into each others eyes or tell them to giggle or even to kiss. These two should probably be models they are just so natural. That and their love is so incredible it was such an experience both shoots working with them.
We started at the temple then drove to the mouth of a canyon and took some more pictures in a gorgeous green area where the sun was shining just perfectly behind them. I am a personal lover of the sun flare in a picture and the light just adds so much more feeling and meaning to a photo. Being able to make the trek and long drive was more than worth it and I am so excited to see these guys celebrate their sealing for all time and eternity on June 3rd!! YAY for temple marriages and the ability to be sealed for all time and eternity! Congrats you two!!
I also thought of this amazing idea to have each couple write them a cute little love note…if you don’t tear up in these then I don’t know what will!!
Chloe is really the love of my life and I wouldn’t want to spend my life with anyone else. I’m so happy I get to marry my best friend. Everything has seemed to lead up to this point in our lives. Saying ‘I love you’ at every pausing moment still doesn’t seem like enough to let her know how much I care about her. The happiest moments in my life have been spent with her. When we first started dating, our relationship seemed more familiar and comfortable then anything else. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of love than her. I think that our love is beyond infatuation. I’ve seen everything there is to see about her and I accept and adore every mannerism and habit. In the year and a half that I have known her I feel like I’ve known her my whole life because she has been my constant companion. I look forward to our future because it will be spent together. We have spent countless Sundays feeding ducks and walking by the river and it was the happiest moments just to see her smile. I remember perfectly the night I carried her to the dock by the river where I got get down on one knee and hear her say yes. I’m couldn’t be happier to be her crying shoulder, confidant, and loving friend. I love her more than anything and only want to make her happy!
Aaron is the kindest, goofiest, most considerate man I have ever met. He is my best friend and I am ecstatic that I get to be with him forever. Aaron and I met in a Biology lab, and I purposely sat next to him so we would be lab partners. He was intelligent, adorable, and seemed to be the perfect guy. Almost two years later, I can say that he is the perfect guy for me. On our second date, I found out that his favorite animal is a squirrel, which is one of my favorites too. A month or so later he sat and watched Star Trek with me, even though I’m pretty sure he wasn’t too excited about it. For Christmas, he made me a detailed jewelry box with my favorite animal, an orca, flawlessly engraved inside. He remembers the detailed meal I always get at Arby’s, and is patient with my hatred towards seafood. He holds my hand whenever he gets the chance, and goes extremely out of his way to ensure that I’m happy. When I moved into our future home and was living alone, Aaron stayed with me until I fell asleep every night for almost two months so that I wouldn’t be scared. He befriended my cat (which is a feat that no one but Aaron has surmounted), and buys me lots of Gatorade and mountain dew. He makes sure that I stay patient with myself, and keeps me optimistic. We have the same sense of humor, and enjoy laughing at something stupid for hours on end. Aaron supports me in all my endeavors and aspirations, and doesn’t let me get discouraged when difficulties arise. Aaron is talented, hard-working, and endlessly patient. He knows exactly how to calm me down when I’m upset, how to cheer me up when I’m down, and how to make me laugh when nothing seems funny. He is my perfect guy, my BFF, and the only person I trust with babysitting my cat. He makes life so easy, because I know that whatever happens I’ll have him, and we’ll be alright. I love him more than I can put in words.
