The morning was beautiful, a perfect day for a wedding. We were planning on smooth sailing, that is until we got a distressed call from Andrea. Apparently our sitters for our children and her daughter bailed on us, leaving us with no one to watch them during the sealing in the temple. Jonathan graciously offered to stay with the kids so that was the new plan. Then we heard that a lady in the local Young Women's presidency might be able to watch them if she could arrive in time.
Meanwhile I went up to the sealing room while Jonathan waited with the kids. Just in the nick of time he showed up escorted by a temple worker. Then the beautiful bride and handsome groom entered. They looked radiant!
And so a new family was made.
After the sealing Jonathan weighed his options. Would it be worse to show up in photos with sandals or make a quick run to go get dress shoes. Which option would put him in the least amount of trouble? Brides usually take awhile to finish changing and making preparations, so he opted to make a run for it. As it turns out it probably would have been better to stick around. The photographer insisted on a group photo fairly early on and positioned everyone, and so we waited a few minutes. As it turns out, he was in the back of the group anyway. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20.
