So Saturday, was their sealing date. We were worried about getting to the temple on time- thanks to wonderful traffic- but were nowhere near late considering Kara had only shown up 4 minutes before we showed up! Mind you, she was supposed to be at the temple over an hour before everyone else got there. Yikes! But that wasn't the worst of it! So, apparently they'd gotten the wrong marriage license from the state, which said that they had been living together. OBVIOUSLY the temple was confused and wasn't going to allow that. So, they had to leave everyone at the temple, and go get the correct marriage license. We were basically at the temple the entire day lol which ended up being alright since we got to chat with family more. The biggest blessing out of all the mess, was that no other couples were scheduled to be sealed that day- so they had all the time in the world to get hitched! What a miracle!
My wonderful brothers helped watched the kiddos during all this waiting time! Fortunately, the LA temple has an amazing visitor's center!
Kara's wedding dress was so original and beautiful on her! Garrett looks so nice in his suit too- what an adorable couple!
Just like everything else about this weekend, most of the reception stuff was done last minute and was a big rush and stress until it started. It was super lovely though and everyone's hard work paid off! I think everyone had a great time!
Addie LOVED the dancing at the end of their reception - we couldn't stop laughing! I don't know what got into her, she's usually not so outgoing around strangers- but she was certainly living it up!
Bummer I didn't get a picture of Jared during the reception. He was the biggest help throughout the whole night! He just kept going and going! Refilling water, food, cleaning, setting up, tearing down- anyone who thinks my husband isn't a hard worker would have shut right up if they saw him that night! Whew! He should have been paid for sure hahaha :)
I am so glad we were able to go and support them, it was a fun and adventurous weekend! Love you guys, congrats Karrett!!!!!
