honeymooning

for just a few days after our wedding celebrations, we relaxed and reveled at the montage resort in deer valley (just up the road from my parent's home/our reception venue). it was such a perfect spot for our quick little honeymoon (we are also going to kauai in november!). since it was the off-season, there was hardly anyone there so we got the benefits of lots of amenities and the feeling of seclusion. we got hooked up with a pretty sweet suite and it was super fun to have a bit of luxury and lots of uninterrupted time together.

we took a grand total on one picture together and just a couple other pictures of our view...
but we had a truly fantastic time.


we woke up our first morning and opened the drapes and were blown away by the majesty of the view.

we had amazing breakfast via room service every morning (came with our room).
we chattered on and on and on about how perfect everything was at the wedding and how grateful we felt to all our family and friends.
we went to a morning yoga class together and were the only people in the class!
we explored the resort: pools and hot tubs, fire pits with complimentary fancy s'mores, a super delicious restaurant, and stunning grounds and common rooms.
we went to dinner one evening in park city and strolled up and down charming main street sipping hot chocolate.
we woke up our second morning and it was snowing!! it was super romantic, cozy and beautiful. i was totally giddy about it.

{after the morning snowstorm}
we sat by our fireplace in our robes and ate food that bridesmaids had packed up from the reception and lots of other treats that people had put in our getaway car.
we attended church together and happened to see my brother and his family there! it was actually super fun to talk to them after sacrament meeting...we had been dying to debrief with someone other than each other!
we drove along guardsman pass - it was so so so golden and gorgeous and yep, we didn't even take one picture. we were pretty deliriously happy and in love.
we took a really pretty (but also muddy!) hike around the canyons ski resort under blustery clouds and surrounded by colorful foliage.
we rode the ski lift and then cruised down the alpine slide and then tried the alpine coaster at park city mountain resort - it was really really fun.
























i think actually the best time i had on our little honeymoon though was when it was over, which is weird, i know. it was just so so fun to come home to our tiny little apartment together. the boy carried me across the threshold, because, we had to, right? and to not have to say goodbye like we have so many nights in our regular lives -- ah! just the best. it was tough to go back to work so soon after the wedding, but everyday life being married is way more fun than i expected. sure, there's a lot of adjustments to make but for the most part it's just sooooooo good.

the best wedding in the history of ever

i just really feel like all my dreams came true. it was the best wedding in the history of ever. this amazing highlight reel, created by the incredibly talented and outrageously sweet jordan melendez, just scratches the surface of all the magic. it was 100x better than i could have ever dreamed up or schemed up. the boy and i are overwhelmed with gratitude for all those who helped make our wedding day and wedding reception remarkably beautiful and special. we were both just drowning in delirious happiness throughout all the festivities (sorry readers but you'll just have to deal with the superlatives and over-the-topness - it was all too good for words but i give it whatever i've got!).

more details to come!

the final countdown



this is so surreal!

the boy and i arrived in salt lake city on friday night and enjoyed spending general conference weekend with family and in the middle of it all! i am feeling tremendously blessed for my faith and for the boy's faith.

we are both working remotely the next couple of days and finishing some last things and then, holy cow, we are getting married. i somehow thought that this countdown app i put on my phone would never get us this close! i am amazed that even through all the craziness of wedding planning on top of really busy lives, i love the boy more and more every single day. i can't believe that i get to be his wife.



i won't be blogging for the next week or so, but am looking forward to sharing the joy of our celebrations here soon. true love is the best and i am so thankful that i've found it and for all the miracles that have brought me here.
