My baby sister Leah got married the beginning of August. It was so fun being together as a family and spending time with the happy couple celebrating their special day. They wanted to keep things pretty simple, so we gathered with the groom’s family the day before to play on their farm. They were wonderful and we had a great time. The next day Leah and Ammon were married in the Manti temple and then headed off on their own. It was a beautiful day and they were such adorable newlyweds.
Brent wasn’t able to be there due to a previous grad school commitment, so I took his photo gear and assumed the role of wedding photographer. Such a scary job – I was nervous the whole time that I wasn’t getting it right. Leah’s dress was altered by a dear friend and costume director of Ballet West, David Heuvel. Instead of carrying a bouquet she wanted flowers in her hair (such a smart move). Since being in nature is so important to Leah I worked with a florist at Every Blooming Thing to get flowers that resembled something you’d find in a field somewhere, then together we made the hair piece and boutonniere. Ammon found his amazing cowboy-tailored suit at a second hand store. He was very dapper. The two looked absolutely amazing together. It was their perfect day. Congrats, Lela. Love you.
