After Geoff and I got engaged, I started planning the wedding! Actually, truth be told, I bought my wedding dress before Geoffrey even proposed. haha! But once it was actually official, I started getting everything together! I wanted to do a lot of things myself because I love weddings! And I’m super picky. So, I made my wedding cake and I died lace and made tablecloths and painted doors and painted lanterns. I wanted everything to be unique and very specific colors!
But when everything was said and done, the only thing that really mattered is that I was marrying my best friend. I had waited for this day for a long time. And I had waited for Geoffrey for a long time. We got married 2 days before our 4 year anniversary and it was the best day of my life.
Of course I freaked out the day before our wedding, as I’m sure lots of brides do. I realized that marriage wasn’t going to be fun and games all the time. I realized that it wasn’t a happily ever after all the time. I realized that it would be hard, that I would have struggles and that we would have to work through trials together and that we would have to work on our love.
But once I made the decision that I would rather go through all of that with Geoffrey by my side instead of by myself, it changed everything. The morning of our wedding, it was a freezing but bright and sunny Idaho winter day. (even though we got married in November) It was the first storm of the season and everything was white! I remember sitting in the Idaho Falls, Idaho temple with Geoffrey and realizing that what we were about to do would last forever. That no matter what happened in this life, we would always be together…forever. And knowing that just makes life even more worth living.
