We have had many adventures such as wrecking a car, an ear infection, stomach flu's, starting school and moving into our apartment. But overall it has been amazing because we have been through it all together.

We went on our honeymoon to Riviera Maya Mexico for a week. This was seriously the best vacation we could have ever asked for. Our room was right on the beach and had everything we needed within a 30 second walk. Everyone knew we were on our honeymoon and treated us like royalty! We wish we could still be there right now..

We moved into an apartment complex in Orem Utah and we are still trying to organize things. We both have been on our own for several years now, so we have accumulated a lot of stuff. And not crappy stuff, but really nice things. But we just don't have room for it all. Last Saturday, September 6th, we had our first yard sale! We officially don't have a yard, so we went down a couple of blocks to a corner with lots of grass and trees and set up. Before we even unpacked the boxes, we had a SWARM of people. Talk about overwhelming! People could have walked out with our stuff and we never would have known. But we ended up selling more than half of our stuff and donated the rest to DI. A successful day!

Brandon started school at Utah Valley University and is absolutely loving it! He is taking several art classes on top of graphic design classes. He sometimes stays after school to finish his work but doesn't even realize he is staying after. He comes home every night with a huge smile on his face. It is priceless. Brandon is still working at Rooster and White part-time as well as The Music School. He is a busy man!

Steph started another semester at BYU and is taking a full load. She is still working at Closet Technologies in between all her classes. She is a super senior this year and can really feel it. She is taking 3 senior level classes and 2 freshman classes. What a difference! She is the oldest person in those classes, but I guess that's what you get when you transfer schools two times. She is excited to finish and to graduate in April 2009.

We have been told its typical for newlywed couples, but we bot cut our hair! Steph and Brandon made an agreement that if Steph could cut her hair, then Brandon could buzz his head. Steph chopped off 17 inches and is selling it to a company that makes wigs out of human hair. She is still trying to adjust to it. Brandon had a really cool Mohawk for a week then buzzed it all off. He loves it.
The wedding was amazing! We are so thankful for all of those who were so kind to come to Idaho to spend that special day with us. It was a dream wedding for both of us and we couldn't have asked for more. Everyone helped put things together and things just looked amazing. The weather was perfect, which is surprising for Idaho! We got married in the Idaho Falls temple at 12:30 and had a luncheon at a local church with all close friends and family. We then had a reception at the Marcum's home in Rexburg. An outside reception was Stephanie's dream and it came true!

We then had a reception in Colorado after the Honeymoon and it was also amazing! This reception was perfect as well. The weather cleared up just right before it was to start, so all got to see the beautiful view of the lake. Brandon's parents flew out for it and it made us so happy!

The flowers were seriously so bright and beautiful. We took a picture with all of them since we were obsessed with them!

We are so thankful for all those who helped out and were able to come, and all those who were so kind to give us presents and share your love! We are still waiting on our photos, so as soon as we get those, we will be sending out thank you cards.

Some of the pictures have been posted on the photographer's website if you would like to see. Go to, then click on weddings.
