7 Amazing Years!

After ten jobs, one business, four moves, one home, two cars, one dog, two kids, and seven amazing years together, I am still in love with this wonderful man of mine!  In fact I am more in love with him now then I was seven years ago when we were married.  This past weekend Ryan and I celebrated our anniversary and I wanted to publicly thank him for making my life wonderful!  He supports me in all my dreams, especially this photography business dream of mine.  This picture shows Ryan perfectly and how helpful he is as my partner in life.

Draper Utah Wedding : Amity + Reuben

The day turned out to be just about perfect.  As perfect as you could ask it to be in the middle of December in Utah.  Earlier in the week had brought lots of snow, but this day was blue skies and sunny!  Yes it was still extremely cold and very windy, but it was also beautiful, just like the couple who promised themselves to each other on that wonderful, sunshiny, December day.

Reuben and Amity met in a religion class about a year ago and although they did not date right away, it did not take long for them to realize that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.  They were married in the lovely LDS Draper Temple, surrounded by their closest friends and family.  Once they came outside they were the only two who did not seem to be bothered by the cold.  Their love for each other kept them warm and happy.  It was wonderful to spend time with these two and witness their love first hand.  Thank you Reuben and Amity for allowing me to document your first day as husband and wife.  You two were definitely made for each other!

Amity wore a beautiful winter cape with a furry hood.  She looked like a snow princess, which I think is probably every girls dream!  Am I right?!!

You could easily see that these two loved every minute they were together.

Amity braved the cold to get some pictures without the cape, to show off her beautiful dress.  It fit her perfectly.

I love the details in the lace and the buttons running down her back.  So elegant! 

Amity, you are gorgeous!  I know Reuben agrees, because he said so many times during this part of the shoot :)  

Reuben you are looking rather dashing yourself.

It's no wonder Reuben loves to gaze into Amity's eyes.  They are beyond beautiful!

Did I mention the wind?  It was so windy but Amity rocked the wind blown look!

This was the moment after Reuben dipped Amity for a kiss and then asked me if he could do it again.  Of course Reuben, you dip your wife all you want!

The winter cape in all it's furry hooded glory!

See what I mean about her rocking the wind?  Can I say B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L?

I sincerely thank you Amity and Reuben for allowing me to be apart of your special day.  For allowing me to document these wonderful first moments as husband and wife.  You two are perfect!
