Happy Day!

April 20, 2013 - Happy Day!!!

Everyone says that your wedding day should be the happiest day of your life. And they are right. April 20, 2013 was PERFECT! Nothing could keep my spirits down that day, not even unusually cold spring temperatures, rain and clouds. It was the best day of my life!

The wedding festivities started Friday night with a wedding dinner. We kept it really low key and just wanted a chance for families and wedding party to mix and mingle. Mike created a slideshow highlighting our dating story that we previewed for everyone. It was really sweet and I think we even saw some happy tears from Mike.  The evening turned out great! Thanks Kurt and Alisa for hosting!

Saturday started off with pancakes and bacon! Who says you can't eat on your wedding day! The morning flew by as my talented friend, Michelle did my hair and make-up and before I knew it, it was time to head to the temple!!

It was cloudy and rainy when arriving at the Draper Temple, but in all honesty, I didn't care. I was so excited to go inside and see Mike. I love being inside the temple as I always immediately feel peaceful and at home. I found Mike right away and I knew everything was perfect. The sealing was just right and all I really remember is smiling the entire time. I loved looking around and seeing all the people I love the most in the same room supporting me, it truly was a very special and tender moment.

I guess the rains came down hard while everyone was waiting for us to come out of the temple, but they stopped moments after exiting the temple. MIRACLE!!!

The rest of the day is a blur. The reception turned out beautifully. Thank you to everyone who helped plan, decorate, paint, and prepare!!!! I know that I might be biased, but my reception was the most fun wedding reception I've ever attended. Even Mike, who wasn't so sure about all the wedding festivities,  admitted he enjoyed every minute of the day! I only wish I could have spent more personal time with everyone.

Now some pictures to introduce Mr. & Mrs. Squires!!!!
