We Tied The Faery Knot!


I got married on Friday, but I've been so incredibly busy that I'm just now posting. We are in a Flying J truckstop in Evanston, WY where we slept in our rented RV last night.

I don't have all the photos yet, only those taken on my camera, by our 14-year-old photographer. As soon as I get the photos from other people, I'll post some more.

We had under-estimated the speed the RV could travel and, as a result, were 90 minutes late to our own wedding! But we were forgiven, and everyone had a good time. We took about 10 minutes to get dressed, then flew down the aisle so that we could get to the good part of eating dinner! My DD had forgotten my box with the things in it that I needed, including my shoes, so I didn't wear any! Our dear friends Aggie and Flora were our best man and matron of honour, and they dressed as the Snow King and Queen. The poor bishop had been put in less than 3 weeks ago, and it was his first wedding. But he did very well, and it was all fine. I wish you all could have been there, but we had such fun with those who were able to come. I want to give particular thanks to Daryol and Rena, who brought my bed from Logan to Rexburg. I wanted to give it to my folks for their guest bedroom, and more particularly my grandmother who is currently occupying that room. I also want to thank Kolette and Marjorie, who helped me get dressed. And Emily, for waiting as long as she could before leaving to go home and feed her baby. Mole and Mani, for dressing up in their card dresses and looking so beautiful. To Shauna, for being Shauna. To Paul, for coming so early, and staying so late. To Barbara, Barbara, and Jeanine, who helped to decorate and put the food together. I'll have to do some more thinking and continue this post later.

And I can testify that it was a very fun event - I have no choice ! I'm the VIP and I'm having the hairs on the back of my hand plucked as I write this if I don't say how wonderful OUCH it was on Friday evening, despite being late. OW !

You both look so happy (and wow, I earned recongition in the blog post even though all I did was eat the food and take a party favor--thanks for the lovely watch, by the way). I hope you're enjoying the trip. I can't wait to hear more from you as you both settle in. Keep us all posted!

Looks like a beautiful day Tola! I'm glad that everything went so well. But, I don't see any wings? Did you decide not to make your Dad too upset? ;)
