Where did you and your fiancé meet?
He served his mission in my parents' ward! We have been friends for almost 7 years.
How did he propose?
We were on our way to the Salt Flats to take pictures with my sister, and we decided we were tired of waiting for the ring. We stopped at the mall and picked up a $5 fake ring and he proposed on the Salt Flats! My sister was there with her nice camera so we got some good pictures. When the real ring came, he took me on a hike right before sunset and re-proposed overlooking a river and the setting sun. :)
Why did you choose to wear a modest wedding dress for your big day?
I wanted something that would be beautiful and timeless while still covering my temple garments. I have worn garments for years, and the covenants they represent are a big part of who I am. I was not willing to sacrifice that representation for my wedding dress - especially when we got married in the temple!
What was your favorite part of the day?
Getting to be the only people in the entire temple. Or getting to see so many loved ones at our reception!
What did you splurge or save on?
We splurged on photography - we wanted to make sure our photos were excellent, and they were! We saved on most everything else and did a lot of work to make sure everything was still beautiful and special while sticking to our budget.
