Salt Lake City LDS Temple Wedding of Jane & Jared

Jared decided to forgo his college graduation from BYU in order to marry Jane instead. It was a big choice, but, rather than wearing a cap and gown, marching across a stage and collecting his diploma, he scooped up his wife which he will keep for all eternity and ran off into the sunset. I think it was a
pretty good trade off. Thoughts? (Pretty sure they'll mail him his diploma.) :)

Jane got ready over at the Marriott a couple of streets over, and when she was ready, put on her super chic tea length white get away dress to walk over to the Salt Lake LDS Temple with Jared for their ceremony. Jared, Jane, and one of her bridesmaids who had just returned from a mission walked over together and said goodbye by at the door as they went to go fill out paperwork! I met up with Jane & Jared later for the BIG moment when they exited the temple doors for the first time as a married couple!

 Jared was feeling a little dwarfed by his super sized groomsmen. So we fixed it! ;)
 THESE GIRLS! These girls and their sparkly shoes and their willingness to do anything and everything for Jane! They were the best ever! And I believe lovely young lady on the far right just got married on Saturday, so congratulations to her too!:)

HUGE shout out to Jared's awesome brother Austin for lovingly lecturing me about practicing my ASL skills. It's been over 8 years since I've used my Deaf Studies minor: in college I took nearly 3 years of ASL, Deaf History and Deaf Education courses in order to get a teeny tiny stamp on my transcripts which proclaimed me a "Deaf Studies" minor- the first graduating class in the state of California- but, not pursuing a degree field where I used it, it's a skill I predominately lost. Having not one, but three other weddings this year where it would be helpful that I not switch from ASL to French to German mid sentence (languages which all count differently on their hands and gesture differently and have different grammatical structures)- I've made some attempts to PRACTICE. Yay me. :) Thank you Austin!

Watch out for Part TWO of Jared & Jane's wedding, including their ring ceremony & reception!

I'm glad you enjoyed the practice! If I know any Deaf couples, I'll refer them to you! :). The photos are incredible!
