We're MARRIED!!!! Can you believe it? And what a perfect wedding day it was! We were so afraid the rains would pour and ruin our beautiful day, but such was not the case. The day was practically perfect in every way! The morning began at the Los Angeles LDS Temple, the same temple where my parents grandparents, and great-grandparents were sealed. Needless to say, choosing the LA Temple was an easy choice!
Our temple sealing was beyond words. Although we had never met our sealer before, we felt as if he knew us perfectly. His teachings, counsel, and advice were everything we needed to hear and more. The spirit was undeniable and we knew the Lord was pleased!
After the ceremony we LOVED being introduced outside the temple as Mr. & Mrs. Matt & Aubrey Laidlaw, then greeted by all of our loving family and friends. We truly could not wipe the smiles off our faces. And good thing because for the next 2 hours we were followed around by the amazing Courtney Winnie and Ryan Southwell. We can't wait to see what images and video they captured as we sat in trees, frolicked through beds of ivy and danced around the temple grounds!
Following the photos we caught up with our guests at the most fabulous luncheon hosted by The Laidlaw Family at Bistro Santa Monica where we had the whole place to ourselves. What a treat! The food was to die for too! Your choice of Salmon, Chicken Picatta, or Pumpkin Ravioli, proceeded by a chocolate lava cake. YUMMO!!!
Later that night we had the time of our lives at our reception in my parent's backyard. Everything was just as I had dreamt it up in my head. I loved every detail! From the beautiful cake, to the exquisite flowers, to the time spent on the dance floor. Everything was truly PERFECT!
As the night came to an end, we changed out of our wedding attire and into something a little more comfortable for the most "epic" send-off we could think of. As sparklers lined the driveway, we powered through the crowd on Matt's Harley and rode off on our way to the St. Regis followed by the most romantic honeymoon ever. Get ready for a little video of our week in the snow!
