Everything went so well, and the couple couldn't have looked happier the whole day!
The day started out at 8 A.M. in my bathroom for hair and make-up. I was a titch nervous that Shaley would be a jittery wreck (as she had forewarned), therefore making the whole experience a disaster. Luckily, she was excited and looking forward to the big day...only a few butterflies!
The only hitch of the day was when Tadd headed out to the Provo temple, which would've made for a delightful ceremony...however, the sealing was to take place at Mt. Timpanogas! Thank goodness Grandpa set him straight! (I was being the silent backseat passenger...or rather completely clueless as to what was going on).
We did make it on time, and luckily we didn't have to replay the events of Haley's wedding...(disaster), and the sealing was wonderful!
SO beautiful and SO handsome!
I don't have one of the Leishmans, or I'd post that too! Maybe Lacey should blog, so I could steal one... tee hehe!
L-R: Kris and Bree, Tadd and the dudes in their sweater vests, Addison kickin' back, Myself and Breezy, Kecia with her girls, Tadd and Crew, Haley and Addison, Uncle Tadd and Addison
Stupid buttcrack bangs
So glad they fed each other traditionally!
Heading out the door for their weekend away!
Such a perfect, special day!
The neatest thing of the day would've been all the Cox siblings and their spouses present at the sealing. There was a very special spirit in the room, and I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a great experience!
Congratulations Shay and Roman! We wish you the BEST in your new life together!

Shaley and Roman's friends were invited, as well as family from both sides. It was a hit!
The guessing games that Steve put together, I've always been terrible at this sort of stuff!

1. Roman and Shaley's open house at the Madsen residence.
2. Shaley took out her endowment in the Mesa temple.
3. Family fun and lots of laughs!
First night we arrived we headed over to Roman's parents house for dinner and Shaley's birthday celebration. We needed to make up for it somehow since we drove for 10 hours on her actual birthday!
We were welcomed with some excellent Mexican food and introductions with the rest of the family!
Chris and Tadd really enjoyed freaking out Natalie's twins with their fireworks. I think Tadd was sad to leave those boys, and even more sad to find out they won't be coming to the wedding! Chris was planning on welcoming them to Utah with a giant lot of fireworks!
I look like a blazing fire in the middle. By the way, it was actually blazing hot. Coincidence?
All in all, the trip was a success and such a fun change of pace!
Stay tuned for pictures of the Diamondbacks game in the stifling heat...
