the wedding

Tuesday, July 21, 2015 is the day that we started our forever!  Nik and I got sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake LDS temple.  We met at the temple that morning at 8 o'clock.  Our sealing was at 10 o'clock so we had to be there two hours early.  We both went to change into our temple clothes and then we would have a little bit of time together in the celestial room.

As I was being escorted to the celestial room to meet Nik I remembered that his ring was in my locker.  We hurried back down to the bride room so that I could grab his ring.  I loved waiting in the celestial room with Nik.  I could feel the spirit so strong and was so happy.  I was excited that we would be sealed so soon and for our eternity of adventures together.

Our escort came to tell us that they were ready for our sealing.  As we walked into our sealing room Nik handed our rings to my mom so that she could hold them until after the sealing.  The sealer gave us some words of advice and then we were sealed for time and all eternity.  It was such a happy moment reflecting how far we have come and what the future has in store for us.  It's amazes me that we grew up on different sides of the world, met in high school, and now we're married!

As we went to the side to do our ring swap Nik went to grab the rings from my mom and we realized that one was missing!  I have a wedding band as well as an engagement ring and the wedding band was gone.  We were nervous that we had lost it in the hallway of the temple somewhere.  Luckily my cousin's husband said he heard something fall earlier and we found it!

We walked out of the temple as a happily newlywed couple!  Here's a few (maybe a ton) of our pictures after the sealing at the temple.
