So this was truly a huge celebration, two families that were pretty much already family becoming one family "officially."
The sealing was absolutely amazing. I ended up sitting directly behind Jenna at the altar so I had a straight on view of AJ's face through the sealing and jeez. The way they look at each other... I just could not stop crying. They are so in love and the spirit in the room was incredible. My dad kept looking at me like "Get it together!" and I just couldn't. It was too sweet.
Formal pictures were a little rough. There were a record 27 weddings at the San Diego temple that day and the grounds were so busy you could hardly walk. Not to mention it was the hottest day San Diego has had all year and it was sooooo sunny and hot for pictures at 1 p.m. Forgive all the squinting.

|Emma absolutely adores her new Aunt Jenna (and her uncle AJ of course).|
|This pic totally cracks me up. "I... I don't know what to do with my hands..."|
|Ah, but he's got his muscles. That's true love.|
|My cute grandmother (who just celebrated her 80th birthday!) drove all the way from Utah for the wedding.|
|Oh, Jenna. You realize what you married into, right?|
|Seriously. Look at that look.|
|This truly captures them.|
Watching their first dance really drives home just how perfect these two are for each other.
|She pretty much stuck by grandma's side all night.|
|Oh, my crazy brothers.|
|This group knows how to party.|
|I mean... seriously.|
