May 8th, 2009

So, Adam and I got married May 8th, 2009.

It was a big to do, and all our family came to celebrate and support our new commitment to each other.

The night before our wedding we had a family picnic at a park by the beach in Laguna Beach. Everyone ordered take-out from La Sirena, a mexican restaurant across the street. It was wonderful to see family and friends that came in from different states.

Our wedding celebration started with a family breakfast hosted by Adam's parents, Ka and Stan Barlow. They shared memories of Adam growing up and gave advice and well-wishes to us as a new couple. Stan even wrote a poem to us! We loved it!

Our wedding ceremony was at the Newport Beach, CA LDS Temple. This was the best and most important part of the day. It was so calm, we will always remember how we felt :)

This is me and Adam in the car right after we were married!

Our wedding celebration ended in a big party with lots of lights, plants, tasty treats, a mushroom cake, friends, and a fantastic live fiddle band!

Since we were intent on going to Mexico for our honeymoon, our family decorated our car accordingly: "Swine Flu or Bust!"
