wedding pictures

ETA: Some of you have asked me who Lindsey is. I have mentioned her in past posts, but for those of you just starting to read my blog, she is my little sister (nine years younger than me).
It's been a while. I'm back from Utah and have lots of pictures to share. We got back early Monday morning (2 am) and I got the flu the next day. W got it the day after the wedding so I drove us most of the way home. I don't think I had a chance of avoiding it after 15 hours in the car with him. I actually passed out while throwing up in the middle of the night on Monday and even have a bruise to prove it. W also passed out while throwing up while we were in Utah and has a gash in his back to show for it. I can't believe that happened to both of us! But we are finally near the end of it, which means I finally uploaded and edited some pictures from the wedding to share. (Click on them to see them bigger.)





























Those are my favorites. I didn't take too many because they did have a professional photographer and I didn't want to get in her way, but it was fun taking a few. I also took this one in the mirror for my picture of the day on Friday. Not the best lighting, but it works.

It was such a beautiful wedding. Lindsey looked gorgeous and they really seem so happy together. I loved seeing how in love they are and how excited they were to make this commitment. I spoke at their wedding dinner on Thursday night and surprised myself by crying from the minute I started speaking. This is very unlike me - I don't even cry when I bear my testimony. Lucky for me we have it on video so I can relive it over and over (note the sarcasm). It was raining and hailing on their wedding day but it cleared up when they came out of the temple for most of their pictures. They spent their first two nights in Salt Lake and then left for their cruise on Sunday. Saturday afternoon we went to their apartment to watch them open their wedding gifts, which was fun (except that is when W passed out while throwing up). But overall the trip was wonderful and the wedding was perfect.

I am loving my break from school. I'm excited to be over this sickness so I can organize our house before another quarter tears it apart again. I will hopefully be back soon to share some pictures of the wedding book I made Lindsey and Dylan but no promises since my internet connection hasn't been working too well...
