today im linking up with from mrs to momma for the weekly show and tell
this week was all about weddings, and I just love weddings ;)
- Are you married? If so when did you get married, and tell us about
your special day. If not? How would you describe your dream wedding?
I have been married to my amazing husband for just over 2 years. We got married on July 03, 2010. Our wedding was perfect. Our colors were grey yellow & white. We were married on a "farm" called Wadley Farms. We didn't have a huge wedding, but we had everyone that was improtant there. Lots of family and close friends. We definetly felt all the love. I remember being so nervous up until the day before the wedding. Then for some reason the night before I was earily calm. Just happy and excited. As we were getting ready I was totally fine. Then as soon as we lined up and I was holding my dads arm I started to feak out. It all suddenly felt so real. The ceremony was magical. Im not a mushy/gushy lovey person. So I told everyone not to cry or I would bawl. As my husband was reciting his vows his voice cracked as he said my name and then cried. There was not a dry eye in the house! Our reception was so fun, just dancing and spending time with everyone we love. It was one of the best days of my life and I will never forget it.
- Show us some wedding pictures. Either yours or of some that you love.
- How about the engagement? Tell us your story. If not engaged, what's your dream proposal?Our engagement was awesome :)
At the time Tanner was in a band. So that night we all went to one of their shows. After the show we were driving a couple of our friends home. One of my good friends is a photographer and she casually asked Tanner if he could go up in this parking lot that was on the mountain over looking the entire salt lake valley. It was night time, and the lights were spectacular and she wanted to get some pics. This was nothing unusual because bethany has a camera glued to her hip ;) and she is always taking pictures. So we all got out and I must say the view is spectacular. We really do live in a gorgeous city. It was then tanner popped the question. Poor guy was so darn nervous he didn't even get down on his knee and barely mumbled out any words. But I knew what he was saying, and of course I said yes!
- Show us your wedding rings or an engagement photo! If not engaged/married ... show us your "dream" ring.

- Tell us why you think marriage doesn't work out for so many? What can we do to make things last
I think that has a lot to do with it!
I think a true marriage based on love, communication, and forgivness can stand the test of time. So if your lacking one or more of these it will cause problems. I think people now a days are to quick to throw in the towel. They seem to forget about the vow and promise they made to each other. for better or for worse. Divoroce is so common so people just do what is "normal". You need to communicate with each other. You need to be comfortable talking to one another. The best test is are you comfortable talking to your spouse about sex? lets face it, sex is a big important and intimate part of marraige. If you can't talk about even that with your spouse, the one thing that is truely between just the two of you, then how are you going to talk about anything? People tend to hold onto things that are bothering them for years, instead of fixing it now. You need to forgive. We are all human, and WE ALL make mistakes. It is our job to forgive one another and grow together. Never forget, and never repeat. But everyone deserves a chance to redeem themselves. You need to love unconditionaly. You cant get married for any other reason then the love for eachother. Becuase in the end, that is the most important thing.
