The One Where We Got Hitched!

We're actually married!! It still hasn't really set in. I keep telling him that it's weird. It finally happened.
The wedding day was SO perfect! I thought we were tied for the first couple to be married in the Draper Temple, but we really were the first. I don't think anyone else was even married that day. It was so nice! I think the pictures turned out great too, I haven't seen them yet, but if they post them, you know I will let you know! The only downfall to the whole day was that the weather was cold for pictures. Our toes were numb, but it was so worth it.
We went bowling after (to celebrate, kill time & include my nieces & nephews) and we had a blast.






My cute mom!!! (below)


Yep, I actually bowled in my dress!



I even got a higher score than Rick did!! Woot! I had to take a pic to prove it... he even got it printed out for me. G stands for Groom and B for Bride... we weren't paying attention to the game! :) (hence the low scores...)



We had a nice intimate dinner with our immediate family after. It was so good to be with everyone and to just relax and not have too much stress on our day.
We went to Las Vegas for the Honeymoon and it was so warm!! Rick surprised me with 2 things. We stayed in the Paris hotel the whole time (I'm kind of obsessed with Paris) and he bought me Blue Man Group tickets. We had a lot of fun walking the strip, playing some hands (one of the casino's had the card game War... it was a blast!!), seeing the free things that the hotels have & going up the Eiffel Tower at the Paris.


Our pool was right under the Eiffel Tower... and it was warm enough to swim and lay out!!


Yes... that's a lion above his head...


We found a hunting/fishing store inside a casino, so we had to stop. We found this sign...








Over all, it was a good vacation. Relaxing, warm & fun. What more can you ask for?

How exciting!! Good job on beating your hubby in bowling, but question: You had your wedding dress as your excuse for the fabulous score...what was Rick's? :)

It was so fun to read your blog. Yep, I even did this without your expert technical help. I guess I had a good teacher. Your pictures really show what an awesome day you had on your wedding. What wonderful memories for the two of you.
Love, Mom
