My brother Eric and Sarah got engaged Thanksgiving weekend and were married for time and all eternity in the Portland Temple this last Friday, January 20th. I had the opportunity to help plan the wedding with my now SIL Sarah. Although we didn't have much time to plan, it turned out to be a beautiful event. Of course, all weddings involve stress but the day ended up being lovely. We had fabulous food, decor and best of all- a new addition to the family!
Sarah's colors were royal blue, white and silver. Andrew was one of Eric's groomsmen, and at the last minute- I became a 7 month prego bridesmaid... yikes! I looked like a big ole' blueberry!
I also got to do Sarah's hair and makeup which couldn't have turned out more beautiful. She was a radiant bride!
The whole family pitched in and helped transform our cultural hall into a vintage winter wonderland. We hung yards and yards of white tulle along with strands of twinkling lights on the ceiling and walls. With the help of MANY ironing hands, we had lots of gorgeous blue and white linens and chair covers. My mom and SIL Rebecca created an adorable ice cream bar with a fabulous wedding cake. On top of that, Hors d' oeuvres and hot cocoa, hot cider and lemon water were served.
My friend Erin and her husband Sean provided their DJ services, which truly made the night! Everyone danced, danced and wished they could dance even more! I think my mom outdid everyone on the dance floor.
What a wonderfully exhausting weekend!

With all the wedding planning, Londyn and I have had lots of conversations about the Temple. She has declared that she is marrying her cousin Kyler in the Temple, of course.
