Planning a wedding is a big deal and finding the perfect location can be stressful. Are you looking for Pittsburg wedding venues? Look no further!
Today Jason and I celebrate our eighth wedding anniversary!
It is so fun to look back at our special day. After a week of early spring rain/snow, March 26, 2005 was a beautiful day with bright blue skies. I was so relieved!
We were married in a small ceremony in the Salt Lake City LDS temple and after taking pictures with friends and family outside the temple (and we were so cold, let me tell you!), we headed to Red Butte Gardens where we had our wedding reception at the Orangerie. Our reception venue was so amazing! I really wanted to have an outdoor reception, but since we got married in early spring, we knew that was out of the question. We looked at a couple different locations and struck gold at the Orangerie! It’s a glassed-in building used to grow oranges and it made our reception feel just like it was outside, only without the wind and freezing temperatures. We had a wonderful view of the valley out one side of the building and a view of the snow-capped mountains out the other side. Inside, the building was filled with tropical plants and trees and smelled sensational. Plus, it went perfectly with our bright orange and pink Gerbera daisies (just like the first flowers Jason ever brought me!) and the clementines that were decorating our wedding cake. It was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding venue! It’s so fun to look back at our wedding album and see how young (and skinny) we were in such a beautiful location.
It’s hard to believe we’ve only been married for eight years. It feels like a lifetime! And I guess after five places of residence, two bachelor’s degrees, a law degree, and three kids, my life is so different now than it was a decade ago that it kind of is like a whole lifetime.
I’m so grateful for the happy life we have built together!
