The Big Day

April 8, 2011 was everything I had dreamed it would be.  I have always been fascinated with weddings ever since I was a little girl and collected wedding magazines, dreaming of being a wedding planner like Jennifer Lopez.  I couldn't wait to plan out every detail from my dress and how I would do my hair to the band we would have and the flavor of the cake.  I had a couple close calls before Adam of walking down the aisle so when he put a ring on it and we had our wedding date set, I already had a vision of what I wanted the day to be.

The night before our wedding we celebrated with all of our closest friends and family in a rehearsal dinner at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in the Empire Room.  I'll never forget how the room looked that night, it was the most beautiful I've ever seen it.  The tables had gold trimmed linen table cloths with gold chargers in the place settings and tiffany blue gift boxes filled with V Chocolates for every guest.  The same florist who did all the flowers for the wedding day put together the center pieces for the rehearsal dinner so everything would be matching and she did not disappoint.  All the ivory and shades of coral peonies were gorgeous together.  I just remember that I could hardly eat any of the delicious buffet because my stomach was filled with butterflies, nerves, and an over-whelming feeling of gratitude for everyone there who meant so much to us.

The next morning, I got my hair and makeup done before the wedding ceremony and was a nervous wreck because of course I showed up late to meet Adam.  Who is late to their own wedding??  Luckily I calmed down once I saw him and our wedding ceremony was intimate and so emotional.  I couldn't help but cry and be so grateful for this greatest moment of our lives so far.

After the ceremony in the Salt Lake Temple, we had pictures taken with all of our friends and family.  The temple grounds were so pretty that day because of the light snowflakes in the air and pink cherry blossoms in full bloom.  We continued the celebration that evening with a reception at Cucina Nassi in Sugar House.  We danced the night away to the live band and enjoyed amazing italian food by Cucina Toscana.  I didn't get to have any of the Gelato bar or the cupcake bar, but the best part about planning a wedding is all the tasting parties before hand where we had more than enough of all the food being served that night.  After cutting the cake, throwing the bouquet, tossing the guarder, and having our first dance we left through a tunnel of sparklers to our vintage rolls royce that was parked out front the entire night to take us away to the Grand America where we spent the night before leaving on our honeymoon.  With the snowfall that happened that day, the car got a little bit cold and couldn't quite start when our driver tried to so we slipped out a side door and off into the night.  Really makes for a great story and the jaguar was not a bad backup;)
