As we prepared to leave the temple, we could see that something wasn't right outside. One of the photographers told us that the videographer wasn't there yet so we were going to stall for a little while. It's funny how things that would have stressed me out completely the day before the wedding, really didn't have the same effect right after the temple sealing. I don't think anything could have made me mad at that moment! I had just married the man of my dreams! :) We ended up just going on without the videographer and everything worked out just fine. Luckily, we had an AMAZING photographer. Kiera did an amazing job! It was so neat to walk out of the temple and see your family and friends cheering and smiling at you. It was an amazing feeling! I also felt so blessed to have my mother's parents there looking on from the waiting room. My grandma was just diagnosed with breast cancer a little while ago and has been recovering from surgeries and radiation. I love her so much for making the effort to be with me on such a special day. I will always be grateful for the way she made me feel so loved and special.
We lucked out with great weather! There was no snow and it stayed light just long enough so that we could take pictures. Because our sealing time was at 3:00 p.m., we were able to catch the beginning of the christmas lights in some of our pictures. It was beautiful! I was FREEZING by the end, but my mom had brought a fur blanket to wrap around me between pictures which helped a lot.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the temple:
