Two years later... M&M's Wedding!!!

So I'm going to make this brief... 
Sometimes families are HARD. 
Today marks my brother and his beautiful wife's 2nd wedding anniversary!
I remember the day very vividly. I was a ball of nerves. The whole drive up to Salt Lake City from Austin, TX I was a ball of nerves. You see, I was the wedding photographer.
Nothing gets me more excited or more nervous than wedding photography.
You get one chance. 
ONE chance.
And then the big day is over.

I was excited. So so so very excited. 
I researched good poses for the Salt Lake Temple. And I prayed like hell for good weather. 
And it was perfect. Even SNOWED. Seriously magical. At least for this Texas girl.

Back to my original statement. 
Families are hard.
Its true. Due to a MAJOR miscommunication, for almost two years Mariela and I thought the worst of each other.

Did I mention that I HATE drama???
I avoid it at all costs. 
And apparently so does Mariela because we both didn't speak of all this until about a month ago!
Goodness Gracious. 

Families are Forever.
Families are hard.
But I wouldn't change it for the world.

Happy Anniversary Mike and Mariela!

(cheesy I know- but I watched Toy Story with that boy so many times its ingrained in my heart! Lol!) 

Here they are!!! The newlyweds!!!
