on may 10, 2014, Robbie & i were sealed together for time and all eternity in the las vegas, nevada LDS temple by my grandfather. it was so special holding hands across the altar and looking into each others’ eyes as we were finally named husband and wife. i am so thankful that we get to spend eternity with one another.
our marriage ceremony was at 11am but we had to be at the temple around 9:30am, so i started getting ready at 7am. then, i got ready again with my bridesmaids later that day before the reception. it was so fun having this girl time on my special day & i’m sure they all appreciated not having to be at my house at 7am that morning.
our reception took months of planning because of course i wanted it to be perfect! i had a clear vision from the start & our amazing wedding planner helped bring it to life. the reception turned out better than i ever could have imagined & i was just so happy that my fairytale wedding came true!
our wedding rings were custom designed in my hometown of las vegas at the incredible Jeff White Custom Jewelry. Robbie designed my ring from start to finish with our good friend Danny White at Jeff White Jewelry and i still get questions about it to this day. it is an all rose gold braided band with a pear cut diamond, a diamond halo, and two pink sapphire stones for my signature pop of pink. i was breathless when Robbie proposed with it. as for Robbie’s ring, it has a rose gold band around it to match mine, and on the inside of the band it has my name engraved in my own handwriting. Jeff White has custom designed jewelry for Nicolas Cage and created the wedding rings for MLB all-star (and las vegas hometown hero) Bryce Harper and his wife. we love these beautiful symbols of our commitment to each other and are so happy we got to put our own personal touches on them.
robbie got up on stage in front of everyone and read the most tender and special poem for me that he read written just for our special day. i was so teary while he read & felt so grateful for such a loving and romantic husband.
i’ve said this every time someone asks about our wedding: having a live band at our reception was the best decision we made! everyone loved the fun, upbeat music all night & it was such a fun way for everyone to celebrate on the dance floor. The Mimi Knowles’ energy really took the evening to the next level & dancing with all our friends and family was definitely our favorite part of the reception!
our wedding day was the best day of our lives. it was filled with love, tenderness, laughter, fun, family, & friends. the wedding ceremony was of course the most special part of the entire day & is something neither of us will ever forget. it’s hard to put into words how i felt during it, but i was just so filled with love and gratitude that i get to be with Robbie forever.
i’d like to thank everyone who came to the ceremony and/or reception! we appreciate all our loved ones coming from near and far to celebrate our most special day with us.
