The Wedding

The Main Event (Hillary and Jake's wedding) took place on Saturday July 19 in the gorgeous Nauvoo Temple.

Skye and Jason contemplate the statue out in front of the temple grounds.

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Russell Platt





I got a kick out of this because that entire line of people is our children being escorted up the walk for family pictures.



"It smells beautiful, Aunt Cali!"



Skye and Ryan visit with Aunt Linda



And this is our family initiation, "Here, hold some kids."



The kids pose with their aunt Hillary and new Uncle Jake






Welcome to the family Uncle Jake





Daddy visits with his brother Bill and sister-in-law, Linda.

The garden reception was held at one of the historic homes that's been restored and is now used as a bed and breakfast. The Ellis M. Sanders House. It was gorgeous and everything looked perfect.











Emily and Adrianna had a very important job: Keep aunt Hillary's train out of the dirt.



Okay at this table we have Will and Stephanie Herrington visiting with Mike and Angie Egloff.



On the far left is Linda Garber and in the back to the right is her husband, our amazing photographer, Jimmy.





That's Jay and Julene Cottle talking to my aunt and uncle. Brother Cottle is the one who performed the ceremony. And sister Cottle and I bonded because they adopted all four of their children. So she was really taken by Gideon.

Grandma and Lily Pie. (Shiloh made the girls' matching dresses.)





It was apparently a little bit too much excitement for all of the babies.



Cutting the cake. (It was gorgeous and delicious. One layer was strawberry, another lemon and another white. YUM!)



Looks like Kendra enjoyed it.

Gideon gets to meet Aunt Patty



The bouquet toss. (I love how Lydia didn't want to be left out.)



Cody and the Egloff boys took it upon themselves to make sure the rental car was appropriately attired.



Aunt Michelle with Lily



We finally allowed the newlyweds to leave and head for their honeymoon.

I love that someone thought to bring the play pen and swing to the reception. When my sis got married we finally just laid our swaddled 5 month old next to the gifts with a bow and note that he was "to chris and anna."

The Bride and reception looked fabulous!

I'M A LITTLE CONFUSED.... WHEN DID HILLARY, SKYE, AND JESSE GROW TO BE SUCH BEAUTIFUL WOMAN? I KEEP LOOKING AT THE PICTURES, THEY BARELY RESEMBLE MY MEMORIES, ESPECIALY, SKYE AND JESSE.
