Michelle & Brock were married on my 10 year anniversary. It turned out to be a great day at the temple, hot but not horrible! It was so great to be at the same place I was married in and remember what a great day it was at the temple (even if all of Main Street was under construction and we didn’t really get any pictures with the whole temple it in!). Michelle and Brock are SUPER nice and thoughtful and all of their family and friends were too. Michelle is really good friends with one of my brides from April, Danielle-who is also a sweetheart. I can do all of their friends weddings if they are all this nice! This was also the day I started to lose my voice–little did I know how sick I would get for the next two weeks. Luckily I’m feeling so much better now and have tons to catch up on.

I flew out to do Ruthie and Jason’s wedding in Ohio. The night before they had a rehearsal dinner on a yacht on the Ohio River. We saw some of the Red’s game from the ship and a beautiful sunset over Cincinnati. The next day it was off to the Louisville, Kentucky LDS Temple for their temple sealing, then off to Cincinnati again to get some bridal pictures in the HOTTEST weather I’ve ever taken pictures in, and finally to their ring ceremony and reception/formal dinner at the Oscar Events Center. They gave their guests “Love Spoons” from Wales as favors and ended the night with a firework show that was quite spectacular.
Well we had about 30 minutes before the rain came DOWN. I mean POURED, and POURED. Luckily my mom bought a lot of big umbrellas and we shuttled people back and forth to their cars. We really had some amazing vendors at the reception. Make sure to check out their links below the pictures! The food was absolutely amazing (thanks Angela’s Catering!) and we had plenty of it! The cake by Carrie’s Cake’s was honestly the BEST cake I have EVER had (peanut butter chocolate…my favorite combination of all time!). The flowers were so gorgeous by Element Design & Decor…everything was just amazing-so many great vendors and friends. Check out the links below!! Oh and we had a fight over the bouquet after it was tossed…literally about 5 minutes before one of the girls gave up! So funny!
So I am a little biased because she is my sister, but I think she looks pretty beautiful! My new brother in law is told all the time now that he looks like Tom Cruise. It was great weather at the temple, then, well you’ll see the reception pictures soon-but it was a memory for sure. I forgot my recommend at the temple, but luckily my good bishop was available and they let me in (about had a breakdown…well did a little…couldn’t not cry when you think you are missing your sisters wedding!). We had some great vendors for her wedding. Check out their links below the pictures.
This couple is the sweetest ever! And when you think, that groom looks tall….well, he IS SUPER TALL! I should have brought my step ladder 😀 I hope you both had a fabulous day despite the heat & crazy people yelling at the temple! It was super fun seeing all of my clients referred by Danielle ;D at the reception. Sorry I was a little out of it-SO SICK!! Need to get better!
