I couldn’t decide how to title this post . . .

“Another One Bites the Dust”

or

“Love Story”

or

“The Knot”

Anyhoo . . .

Wyatt came in from his trip at 8:00 pm on Thursday night. I picked him up from the airport and we drove straight to Saint George (with the exception of a loop through Provo/Orem to pick up Alex’s sister, Ariel). We got in at 1:30, and crashed at Larry & Karen’s.

The next morning we went to the temple to watch Beth and Alex be married.

So sweet.

The rest of the day was spent in wedding festivities – pictures, and lunch, and a beautiful reception. Everything went off without a hitch.

It was a great day.

Congratulations Beez. I hope you know how much you are loved.

Stories of Wedlock

Saturday was the culminating celebration of many months preparation.

This girl and this boy were wedded.

The whole day I kept remembering when Leslee was just 18 years old – my family had just moved away from Salt Lake. Leslee and I were the only one’s left here. I lived downtown with my hubby as a newly wed. Leslee would come over three-four-five times a week to have dinner and hang out. I remember I would make Wyatt walk her to her car when it was late – we lived across the street from the homeless shelter. As I remembered that time, I felt a sort of emptiness: I should have done more, should have been more for her. She needed more, in ways I’ve only come to realize in the past few months, and I feel like I failed her.

And now she is starting a new life, with a new family. I am grateful Jason seems to want the best for her, and will support her and put her first in ways that the rest of us did not.

I love you Leslee. Congratulations, Happiness, Love.

IMG_4426This is the dress I really like. I think she should wear it with a cathedral length veil.

Last weekend while I was in Arizona, Leslee, Carrie, Beth, Karen and my mom all went wedding dress shopping. Of course I was so sad I missed the fun. I made Karen text me pictures of each dress so I could give my opinion (because the phone pictures were so detailed I could garner a clear opinion :D ) It was a lot of fun.

Yesterday Leslee and I went back to the store where she had narrowed the selection down to two dresses. Dress A is a vintage lace victorian look that only Leslee can carry off. She has the height, figure, and posture to make the dress just — pitter-patter, pitter-patter — STUNNING. I LOVED it on her. I really think she just looks so beautiful in it. Mom, Dad (who also went, I’m told) and mother-in-law-to-be all agreed with me (or I agreed with them, I guess) and think that is the dress to get.

The second dress is equally gorgeous though, and Leslee seemed to lean a little more towards that one. It’s more of a traditional dress, with beautiful beading, and and empire waist with an A-Line skirt. There is an inset in the train of a slightly more ivory satin, and matching satin the folds of the waist line. It’s really lovely. She has a hard choice. But what ever one she chooses, she will make it beautiful with her grace.
