On Saturday morning we headed to Red Butte Gardens for Abe’s brother’s wedding. David and Olivia made a gorgeous couple, and their wedding was perfect. I should have taken more pictures, but we have a TON of the girls, who were flower girls.
Lydia very solemnly performed her duties and when she reached the end of the aisle, she realized she still had most of her petals in her basket. With her solemn, Lydia-serious face, she looked around and then threw the rest of her petals in the air. Everyone broke out into laughter. Meanwhile, Mary was very focused on distributing her petals on the ground one by one and had fallen far behind her sister. 🙂
Abe was a groomsman and so was able to observe all of this hilarity from a great spot.
I was carrying Ammon, who was (in theory) the ringbearer. He looked very cute and was utterly incapable of performing his wedding duties. I handed over his little pillow to David before corralling Ammon into our seats. We lasted five minutes before he was off exploring. During David’s vows, I let Ammon play on a little garden tram and took my eyes off of him for no more than thirty seconds so I could back up and try to listen to David. During that time, Ammon almost started the tram and practically drove off. That child is shaving years off of my life on a daily basis.
After the beautiful wedding we went home and all slept for..four hours. Lydia had a fever of 102 degrees from being outside in the cold without a coat, and the rest of us were tired from the trip.
As soon as I have more pictures of the wedding, I will fill out this post. It really was so beautiful, and David and Olivia were such a charming and sweet couple. We are so thrilled for them!
