Bountiful Utah Temple 

I was sealed for time and all eternity in the Bountiful, Utah Temple.

I surprisingly slept well the night before.  I was finishing last minute projects, which kept me up until 2 in the morning.  I woke up at 8:30 and got into the shower.  My friend, Hannah came to do my hair.  We kept it simple.  Everything was curled, and we did a simple crossover thing to keep my veil in place.

Alicia came to pick me up, and we were on our way. I was supposed to arrive an hour before the ceremony, and we were just a few minutes early.  We finished filling out our marriage licence and then went on our way to get ready.  Alicia was my escort, so she was responsible for helping me with anything I needed.  When, I was in need of an escort, I chose Alicia because I wanted someone that I would have in my life for a long time.  I seem to change friends often and I wanted someone who I knew would be a great friend for a long time.  Therefore, Alicia was the person that I had be there.

The temple was gorgeous.  I absolutely loved the brides’ room.  Because of the fact that Jared’s dad works at the temple, many people wanted to meet the new daughter in law.

I then was sealed to Jared.  The ceremony was wonderful and many people told us that it was the best sealing that they have ever attended.  Their was a special spirit.  Partly, because of Jared and me, and partly because the temple president was our sealer.  One of my friends chose to write everything down that she remembered the sealer saying so that I could remember later.

Jared ended up loving my dress.  I was partly worried because of how often he would point out a dress that he didn’t life, or say he loved a dress that was no where close to mine.    We took a million pictures outside the temple.  with family, friends, and just the two of us.

After pictures, we both changed to other nice clothing and went to our dinner.  The temple did our catering, and we had chicken cordon blue, rice, veggies, rolls, and cake.  Everything was absolutely wonderful.  We had everyone who attended, introduce themselves and announce how they knew Jared and me.  We heard many embarrassing stories (thanks to my sister starting the trend).

We then went to our awesome hotel (that will be another story in itself)
