Our Love Story: The Big Day.

Being apart from Drew and going to school at the same time made the {123} days between the day we got engaged and our wedding day feel like an eternity! On August 18th my parents drove to Inkom to pick me up. They had a hotel reserved in Logan (about an hour away) and I was going to stay with them that night. I said goodbye and goodnight to Drew. The next time I would see him, we would be walking into the temple to be sealed to each other for forever!

I woke up EARLY that next morning. My awesome cousin Kim (also my hair dresser) stayed in Logan the night before as well and was so gracious to wake up at 5 in the morning with me and get me all ready! 


I arrived at the Logan Temple with my parents and waited for Drew. All the nervous/anxious feelings went away as soon as I saw him walk up. The Holy Ghost confirmed to me once again that I was doing the right thing. I was supposed to be marrying Drew. 

The temple was absolutely beautiful! We were surrounded by close family and friends as Drew and I promised to love each other for forever. Our marriage can be eternal! I know that if we follow the God's Commandments and honor the covenants we have made with each other and with the Lord, we can be together forever - even AFTER we die! What a happy thing! We said yes and just like that I became Ashley Wright. Drew's Wife. I married my best friend! That peaceful, joyful, happy feeling I had at that moment stayed with me throughout the rest of the day! It was simply perfect. 

We came out of the temple and were greeted by SO many family and friends. Gosh we are blessed! We spent the next couple of hours taking pictures! My cheeks hurt from smiling so much, but I just couldn't help it! This was the happiest day of my life. 


Our photographer did such a great job at capturing the pure joy and love we were feeling that day! We can't thank her enough!



And that was the beginning of our life together. On August 19th, 2011 we became a family. I chose to marry Drew and that has been the best decision I have ever made. 

... and just because we have some awesome shots of people while they were waiting for us to come out, you get to enjoy more pictures...
