Temple Pictures

Ok, I'm working on some posts of the happenings in our lives lately but until those are done enjoy some pictures done by the lovely Travis Richardson on our wedding day at the temple. I'm going to post pictures with our families later one.

So quick side story about getting to this point in the pictures. So after the husband and I were married we were getting changed and our parents and everyone went outside to greet us. Our temple worker escorts were also no where to be found. So we walked out and walked out the wrong door to the wrong family. It was finally another couple's family who guided us to the right door. Oops...

We seriously had the best bridal party. A: They are all so attractive right? B: They were so much help! (pictures to show later) But it was so cold standing out there taking pictures and they helped keep us warm and hold umbrellas ect. From left to right (nicknames used in blog in parentheses), Heatherlynn, (Squirrel) Cortney, Jensen (Jordyn), Melissa (Gus), Cali, Me (Bennett), Sterling (The Husband), Alex, Zach, Carlos, Andrew, and Sawyer (TheBrother-in-law)


We were so excited when we woke that morning and it was snowing. It was so incredibly cold (and I ended up getting sick for our whole honeymoon) but the pictures Travis got in the snow were perfect. It was honestly exactly what we wanted. Can I say again how amazing Travis is? 

And for your viewing pleasure, some behind the scenes pictures.
1. I told you our bridal party was the best. They were constantly holding my dress, umbrellas, putting their coats over us to keeps us warm. Seriously the best friends we could ask for. 
2. So there was also some wind that day. And once I put my veil in the wind kept catching it and pulling me backwards. To the point that I thought my mom was pulling back on the veil. 
3. I just love this picture because it is exactly what was going on all day in pictures. There would be people holding umbrellas, the dress, or the veil and Travis would count and they would all run like mad or duck behind us. It had us laughing all day.

I am so grateful we have so many amazing pictures to help us remember our amazing wedding day.


  1. I would also like to mention that my heels in this picture are a startling 5 inches. And that I put my life on the line for this shot!!

  2. Oh my beautiful photos! So sad we weren't there, but so happy that such awesome photos were taken so that we can enjoy! :)

  3. Saw your picture on Pinterest and stumbled across your blog. Your dress is gorgeous! Can I ask who designed it/where you purchased it? Thank you and congratulations!

  4. I have the same question as ^Sydney Croft. Also, what temple is this? It's beautiful! Congrats.

  5. Oh thank you so much! It was designed by Nancy Barrus. She owns a boutique bridal shop called Avenia Bridal in Orem, Utah. She has a website And it connects to a blog as well. She and her entire are team are amazing! I tried on a sample dress and they she completely customized to me, adding and changing details until it was perfect.

    It's the Mt. Timpanogos Temple. It was so perfect!

  6. Would you consider renting your gown?

    1. I haven't really thought much about the possibility but if you send me a private email we could talk about it! Thanks!

    2. Hello again!
      I sent you an email awhile ago about renting and I haven't heard anything back so I just wanted to double check on here again.If you are interested in renting out your dress I would be thrilled to try in on, if not please let me know as well. Thank you so much!
