After the ceremony, the wedding luncheon was in Tooele, but we had a little bit of time before we had to be there - we weren't going to help set up or anything. :) So, we went to Wendy's and got a frosty. I sat there thinking, "Hey, all you people, can't you see that we just got married." I was just amazed that no one knew.
The luncheon was wonderful. We had it outside near Brent's parent's house. Good food, good people, fun time. It was under some trees so it wasn't even hot. Very nice!
Our reception was in the garden of the Lion House in Salt Lake City. The flowers were amazing and it was a perfect place! The refreshments were a cake buffet - tons and tons of cakes you could choose from. Unfortunately, we didn't get any, but we didn't notice that at the time. A harpist was playing in the background. A perfect night!
The farther I am from the actual wedding day, the less most of that stuff matters. What really matters is that we knelt across from each other at the alter in a Holy Temple and were made an eternal family. I tell the Young Women all the time that I got to marry my prince charming in the right place. I will never forget that feeling even if I can't remember all the words.
We have a GLORIOUS life. True, things have not gone exactly to plan, but that doesn't make the journey any less sweet. Brent is my best friend, my greatest love, and some days the biggest pain. :) (Couldn't be totally mushy.) I couldn't imagine my life without him. Heavenly Father has blessed us so much and I am so thankful.
I think it's the best when you can look back on your life with someone and see that though there were some bad times, the good times totally eclipse them. I know that we've had bad times. I know what they were like when we were in them, but I would go through them again because they've brought us closer. I'm sure there's going to be more ups and downs, but I know we can do it.
I love you Brent! I couldn't imagine being without you. Thank you for everything!
