This is a short post on two very long and wonderful days. Last May 29th, Summer and Jake had their wedding reception...this way...
They were getting married the next day, on May 30th, 2015, so today is their first anniversary.
Summer came home for a month before her wedding to help get things ready. She made darling favors...
...and a guest book.
She painted letters...
...and made a lot of terrariums with dinosaurs using cherry jars from Dairy Queen.
There were even dinosaurs on the cake.
She and Jake were (and are) very much in love.
I was (and am) so happy to see her happy.
The reception was at a church building nearby with an outdoor pavilion. It was a lovely evening...
...for celebrating and eating cake.
The next day, we were all back in our wedding finery to see them married In the San Diego Temple.
While we were waiting for Jake and Summer to come out of the temple (The adults were in the temple with them, but they have the bride and groom come out of a special door.) I took a few pictures. Here is my little flower girl with her flowers.
And Michael with some of my favorite people wearing his bow tie that matched the bridesmaid dresses.
Heather Gwen and Kelly were bridesmaids and didn't appreciate my camera.
Finally, they arrive!
Here is the wedding party....
...and a picture on the beach...
...and the happy couple looking off into their future.
We love you Summer and Jake!!!
