mr. & mrs. baker

On June 6 we had the privilege of attending the wedding of sweet Grady Baker and Molly Overmyer. They were sealed in the Nashville Tennessee Temple and had the most beautiful reception at Mint Springs Farm. It was fun to travel to Molly's hometown of Nashville and take in all its southern charm.
Grady and Molly started dating shortly after we got engaged. We were actually present on their first date, and I liked Molly instantly. I've known Grady since 2011, when we competed on BYU's Model UN team together. Since then we remained friends and eventually I started dating his roommate Preston. Grady was a groomsman in our wedding and last weekend Preston got to return the favor as a groomsman for his special day. The only sad part about Molly and Grady getting together was the timing. They really started officially dating in the middle of winter semester, so we only had a few months to be couple friends. It was sad leaving them in Provo and we wish we could have taken them to Dallas with us. We were thrilled when they got engaged during Thanksgiving and were anxiously counting down the days til their nuptials and our reunion.
Weddings are way more fun once you move out of Provo because not only do you get to celebrate the wedding of your friends, but you get to see all of your friends and party together under the happiest circumstances. Above is the gorgeous wedding party in front of the Nashville Temple. We got to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones. It was also a treat to see the entire Baker family. A few Thanksgivings ago, they adopted Preston and me for the holiday and we had a very Baker Thanksgiving. Since then we've seen the Bakers many times during their visits to Utah and have always been invited to their family gatherings. They're the sweetest family and Molly is a lucky girl to marry into a such a welcoming and fun family.
Molly had a beautiful ring ceremony at the reception venue and here's a picture of the little chapel it was held in after all the guests had cleared out. It was a lovely ceremony and I'm still not over chandeliers in barns.
Me and my forever wedding date at Mint Springs Farm. I loved seeing Molly's southern belle-isms through the decorations and reception venue.
First dance inside the pretty venue. It was a Tumblr dream in there folks.

We are so happy for Grady and Molly. Not only are they visually the most perfect American couple in the land, but they truly complete each other and make each other so happy. I love seeing them together and especially when Molly makes fun of Grady hehe. We can't wait to go on couple vacations with these pretty blondes and wish them all the happiness in the world. Congrats Grady and Molly, we love you!
