mr. & mrs. mcgrath

I flew to Utah this week to attend the wedding of my dear friends Jadyn Cherry and Sean McGrath. They were sealed for time and all eternity March 29, 2014 in the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. Yesterday was a lot of firsts for me like first time ever seeing the Oquirrh Mountain Temple and first time attending a sealing other than my own. I felt so happy and blessed to have the opportunity to attend Sean and Jadyn's sealing. My heart was so full for the both of them and I was also reminded of my own sealing and how special and wonderful that morning was.
Jadyn moved to Pennsylvania in high school and was in my stake. I would hang out with her at stake events but we really became friends when we were in the same hall freshman year. Jadyn and I hated everything about BYU and the freshman experience and wallowed in self-pity together. We lived together sophomore year where we only became closer (and happier). I met Sean the same year because he was our neighbor. All three of us have remained friends and Sean and Jadyn surprised me in the library when they told me they were getting married. I am so happy for these two because they complete in each other and are two of the smartest and best people I know.
How perfect is Jadyn? I am so obsessed with her dress and her entire wedding day look. It was so Jadyn and sooo beautiful. She truly looked like a goddess. 
The reception was held at The Underground in downtown Provo. Really cool and cozy venue. Jadyn's reception was so much fun and a spectacle in a good way. For example there was fire dancing right before their send off by a world renowned fire dancer. One of my favorite moments of the night was the daddy daughter dance which was actually a slow salsa. Jadyn and her dad are great dancers and it was the coolest daddy daughter dance I've ever seen. I used to spend a lot of time with the Cherry family during the summers they were in Lancaster. I miss them and it was a treat to see all of them this weekend.

I'm so thankful to have been a part of Sean and Jadyn's day and it was an honor participating in their wedding festivities. I am so happy for these two and know they are just beginning another incredible adventure together :)
