Once Upon a Time; I got MARRIED!

Exactly one year ago today…

I got married! I thought it would be a good idea to share some of our wedding pictures with you today. I haven’t really shared a whole lot about my husband and me, or our love story. So, with each picture, I will share a random fact about our relationship.

"Can I get the rings please?"
I know you’ve seen this picture recently, but I love it SO much! See that man in the middle, the one marrying us? Yeah, that’s my dad!

 

  Behind the lens

First things first, we were lucky enough to hire the best (in my opinion) wedding photographer in the state of Utah. Her name is Ashley DeHart. You can find out more about her in the spotlight I did on her a while back.

No Kids Zone
Yes, you can share this post with your kids! I just think this picture is so funny. We had an area that we wanted to make sure kids didn’t play in, only because it wasn’t a safe area.

 

Let’s dive into these random facts! Starting with me, cause you know, I’m selfish.. Ha!

Random Fact: I made the first move… Yup.

My Girls!
Meet my line up of girls! From left to right you have my gorgeous, free-spirited, fun-loving niece Ky Ky! Next to her is my personal wedding planner, my sassy red-headed friend, girl-I-can’t-live-without, Sara. Then there is me in the big white dress… My right-hand-man, partner-in-crime, mini me who stole all the good looks in the family, my little sister Hailey. And lastly, definitely the shortest with the biggest personality, Sage! To be honest, I can’t live without these girls, and I am so glad I have them in my life.

 

Next up; Let’s pick on Craig

Random Fact: He is 11.5 years older than me! That means when he was learning how to drive, I was learning how to read! Let that soak in for a minute…

Love of my life

More Random Facts:

Craig and I dated for almost 5 years before we got married. Our son, Henry, was 3-years-old when we got married. He was the ring bearer!

Ring Bearer

Our Families…

Random Fact: My family is rather large. I have six brothers and sisters. Craig only has one sister. His family is quite small. No matter what the differences are, luckily, we both fit perfectly in the other’s family.

So how did we meet?

Random Fact: We met in a bowling league in Morgan, UT.

Cowgirl boots and Weddings
Sometimes it’s the little details that matter. I asked my photographer to take pictures of even the smallest things, as to not miss a single detail of our wedding.

More selfish Random Facts about me:

I am a control freak and suffer from high anxiety issues. So you can only imagine that the whole wedding planning process was very painful for me and the people who were trying to help me and trying not to kill me. I planned every single detail of our wedding down to the very confetti that covered our tables.

Open Bar Wedding Sign
Well, of course! This absolutely HAD to happen!

Random Fact:

I am a rum drinker. My favorite? Malibu, because it has that fruity, summery hint. Craig really enjoys Jim Beam. HOWEVER, Craig and I very rarely drink together.

The League of Extraordinary Nieces
Side note fun fact: I am the proud auntie of not one, not even two, but SEVEN nieces! Finally, I was able to get them all in one place. Meet “The league of extraordinary nieces” P.s. I might be the coolest aunt, but of course, I am being a little biased.
Groomsmen
Of course, we had to get a picture (and this isn’t the only one) of all the boys!

We are fiercely loyal to our friends.

Random Fact: Craig didn’t meet my bestie Sage until well into the wedding planning process. I didn’t meet his friend Matt until the day before our wedding.

Tiny little bucket. Country Weddings.

The Random Facts Continue…

We don’t enjoy the same kind of movies. He really enjoys horror films, and of course, I love Rom-Coms. LUCKILY, we both really enjoy action movies and movies that make you really think.

This is probably the most important, most influential man in my whole life!

Kickin’ it Old School

Random Fact: Craig asked both of my dads for their permission before asking me to marry him.

Star Wedding Topper
We custom ordered our wedding topper from Etsy. I wanted to link it here for you, but I can’t find it anymore… If I find it, I will let you know!

So how did he do it?

Random Fact: He didn’t! He had our son ask me for him. My heart absolutely melted, and I was caught off guard.

Wedding Guests. Family and Friends.

Okay, have you had enough yet?

For your LAST Random Fact: I thought I would share what we are doing for our anniversary. Well, not much of anything. We played around with really big ideas, months ago. None of which we did. Then we thought we would go to a movie and a really nice dinner. Nah! Then we thought about just dinner and a night without the kid. WELL, we decided on a movie in those fancy new luxury seats, with movie theater food, and absolutely nothing special.

We have plenty of anniversaries ahead of us.

Black and White. A perfect match!
Black and White. A perfect match! I am nothing without my glasses, and Craig is nothing without his hat. We are nothing without each other…

We aren’t going anywhere, and this is just the first of many for us. We figured we might as well start out small, and work our way up.

Thank you!

Thank you for enduring through all of these pictures and random facts! I am so happy to be married to this man, and I cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together.
