Every Love Story is beautiful but ours is my favorite. (shout-out to Hayley M for this adorable quote). We finally got our wedding pictures back! Yay! I am absolutely in love with them. Melissa White Photography did our pictures Go Here to check her out. She is amazing. I am so glad we went with her. I tried really hard to not over-post here but there were SO many I loved I just couldn't help myself. You are in no way obligated to look at all of them or to read my captions.
Before we got married we decided (at Melissa's suggestion) that we would take our Bride and Groom pictures at the temple the day before we got married. We were sealed on March 16th but we took all of these first group of pictures on March 15th....we weren't married yet. I know, I know all of you traditionalists like myself are dying inside right now that Cameron and I saw each other like this before our wedding day. And it killed me too. I wouldn't let Cameron see my dress before the wedding because I like the tradition of it being a surprise the day of the wedding. I am overly sentimental and very traditional. Sometimes to a fault. But, convenience outweighed my sentimentality and we decided to take the pictures the day before and I am SO glad we did. The lighting was beautiful, we didn't have to fight other couples for spots on the temple grounds, and we weren't rushed because nobody was waiting for us to finish. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
This one is funny because we took our pictures in the evening and it was a cloudy weekend so the sun was not shining and it was really windy (which my fine 3 pieces of hair on my head did NOT appreciate). I was pretty much frozen by the time we finished taking pictures so my sweet future husband gave me his jacket.
|My parents as well as my Brother and Sister-in-Law were also sealed in the LA Temple. I'm so happy that we were able to be sealed in this beautiful place. I love this shot.|
Melissa is an amazing photographer. I love the portraits she got of the babies and children in our family. They are so precious.

|I love that even during this sentimental time I can joke around with my dad. I think she took this picture right after my dad commented on how many people were at the reception and I jokingly said, "we are SOOO popular!"|
|Cameron said that I was everything he never knew he always wanted. I will never forget that.|
|Austin reminded me that it is important to do my hair and makeup every day and to continue to try and look good for Cameron. He also mentioned cooking and laundry, I think. He's such a sweet guy.|
