The very last weekend in August was the perfect wedding to end our Summer. Our oldest niece Andrea & her fiance Jackson were getting married in Idaho Falls. We drove down a few days before their wedding with our kids in tow. It was really a neat experience to be able to include our kids in what we do when we go to weddings and have them see us work, not to mention attend their first ever wedding.
Sandra spent the morning with Andrea while she had her hair done by a friend while Scott spent the morning getting our kids dressed and ready for the wedding. After Andrea's hair was all done, we headed back to her Air BnB where her parents, and many of our family were staying.
Andrea and Jackson were getting married at the LDS Idaho Falls Temple. The Mormon temple there is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful works of architecture in the city.
It was a very warm morning but the sky was as crisp a blue as it could ever get and Andrea & Jackson were just lovely; so excited and so in love. Surrounded by their immediate family, the two love birds had a their first look just outside of the temple before heading in to be sealed for time and all eternity.
Our family was very excited waiting for Andrea and Jackson to come out of the temple and witness their first step into the world as a married couple after an emotional and spiritual ceremony.
After their temple ceremony, we headed to an apple orchard for photos of their wedding party and the two of them. Once we were all finished up, it was time for the ring ceremony where Jackson's dad officiated the exchange of rings. Their dinner was incredibly delicious and was catered by a local BBQ company that served it all buffet style. The rest of the evening our family and kids danced and had a great time, while we snuck the two newly weds out into a farm field for some stunning sunset photos.
Thank you, Andrea & Jackson, for your wonderful smiles and laughter, and sharing your love with all of us.
