June 26th.

(warning: picture overload)

as a little girl you can't help dream of your wedding day. i know i always did. but if someone would have told me of the stress that comes with planning a wedding, maybe we would have just eloped to the temple, skipping a reception and all. no. not really. we had everything we dreamed of. with the help of my mother. she deserves a shout out from the president with all the time she spent helping.
we were sealed for time and all eternity in the salt lake temple.
the temple in which my parents were also married. 
i mean who doesn't want to get married there it looks like a castle right?
anyways we had our reception at the american fork amphitheater.
i prayed for days that it wouldn't rain because we had no other back up plan.
we were blessed with the most beautiful day.
our theme was vintage.
our colors were burnt orange, robin egg blue and cream.
our song was louis armstrong: la vie en rose
daddy daughter was city and colour: the girl
mother and son was the beatles: in my life

i loved all the personal touches we put into our reception.
each table was decorated differently and labeled with a date that was significant to the two of us.
dessert was our favorite homemade dishes by the ones we love.
our engagement video (still to come) was shown as everyone sat on the steps.
dancing is my favorite. especially if one plays shots by lmfao. yes. we. did.

one of my favorite parts was the generations dance. 
all married couples called to the dance floor.
as the music played the couples were excused from the floor based on length of marriage.
the last couple left dancing was my great grandparents.
65 plus years of marriage.
we switched partners and they told us secrets about creating a marriage that lasts.
it takes work, and a lot of laughter.
shy guy i can't wait to grow old with you.

The (slightly) New Mr. and Mrs. Bischof

i know this has been a long time coming...
we have been married for four months now...and the blog doesn't even show that we are engaged. 
well here is to cramming in the last six months..

shyler and i met 7 years ago in mr. clark's math class.
so we have 7 years of history, which would probably take 7 years to write.
i will just say that heavenly father works in mysterious ways.
we have been friends through many ups and downs until one night our friendship changed.

we were at the library park when he told me that he loved me.
we hadn't kissed yet, we hadn't even held hands,
but he told me that he had been in love with me for 5 years.
and something changed. it's something that words can't really describe.
a moment that will go down in the history books. 

...needless to say ten months later we were engaged.
we went on a bike ride to our secret garden.
he had a picnic set up that would put the bachelor to shame.
with nat king cole playing on a record machine.
we made wishes on pennies that we tossed in the river.
i asked him what he wished for when he got down on one knee.
he told me he had always wished to marry me.
sometimes wishes do come true.
mine did.

(more to come on the wedding.....)
