Trevor and Kaitlin's Wedding

My brother Trevor married the darling Kaitlin Kimball on August 11th in the San Diego Temple and it was a beautiful day! Well, it actually started out with me getting out of the shower to a text from my dad saying something along the lines of, "They are shutting all but one lane of the freeway down. Everyone needs to leave now." So I left looking like a wet dog so I wouldn't miss my brother's wedding, but they had already re-opened the freeway and we got there an hour earlier than necessary. (Thank goodness for visitor center bathroom's with outlets so I could do my hair ;)
The sealing was performed by Kaitlin's Grandpa and was so great. It was awesome to hear (all day actually) how much her family ADORES Trevor.
Unfortunately, the photographer went to the wrong temple and so we all had to wait 2 hours after the sealing for him to come and the married couple to come out!

pictures ;)

Kaitlin's family was so gracious and had a luncheon at her Grandparent's beautiful home right on the ocean. Then, since we were already behind schedule we had to head over to the reception, which was at a beautiful park in the same neighborhood.
This was probably the most beautiful reception I've ever been to. They thought of everything!

Live birds

Cookie and ice cream sandwiches

Cute little boxes to fill all the fresh fruit you could imagine! Brandon was in heaven with the raspberries

And I was in heaven with Chelsea's new baby Riley

Cute tree that people wrote notes and hung them on


Setting off lanterns

Aaaand then it was a 12 hour drive home the next day. (We were planning on 14, so it wasn't that bad!)
