The bride from today’s wedding shared a little bit about the day, and about the way she decided to think about her wedding and planning:

I wanted to be able to look back at my wedding and not regret that I had done something that would be severely dated. I also wanted to spend as little as possible. The important thing to me was marrying Michael, and even though the reception was fun, and everything I had hoped for, I kept Michael as my focus and did not let the other things bother me. Life is too short to worry about making sure we got the invitations from the “right” place, or something like that.

Catie’s brother-in-law happens to be the talented Jonathan Canlas, so naturally he photographed the day and sent over some beautiful pics…

How cute is this little guy in his blazer and tie!

(I couldn’t help it – I had to include this shot of Jonathan and his beautiful family. He said it’s the first time his whole family has all been in the same photo, which I guess happens when dad is the guy behind the camera.)

Says Catie, “I was hooked up with awesome music by The Gatsbys, one of whom happens to be another brother-in-law. They kept the party going and did awesome cover songs for dancing. It was so much fun having them, and it made it even more special that [my brother-in-law] Micah was the master of ceremonies.”

Venue: Sleepy Ridge Golf Club in Orem, Utah

Bride’s dress / shoes / headband: Jessica May Bridal / rsvp / Lottie-Da Designs

    is contrary to what normally happens on a diet. So, anyone
    who has used everything but didn’t lose weight
    may use HCG diet drops permanently reasons.

    Do not go into deep search results, go for the top selection results.
    HCG Weight Loss Drops makes the body burn fat and this
    is how it works. In my hypnosis center I have seen many people who have used
    the h – CG diet and yes, they did lose weight successfully, and after they stopped taking the hormone, quickly regained the weight.
    With such a restrictive calorie usage, obtaining diet regime proper meals
    can confirm to be really a challenge. During pregnancy, the
    levels of hormones begin changing. With every 5 pounds lost, the next 5 pounds is closer in reach.
    The treatment works for almost everyone, young, old,
    male, female. In some cases older remedies are being
    made available even though the studies have been inconclusive in regards to
    its effectiveness. Some of the dangers of weight
    loss injections are briefly discussed below to help
    you understand why a healthy weight loss eating plan that includes protein shakes will
    be a better option. You will find several fat burning treatments
    accessible available presently.

    h – CG also resets metabolism rates and protects the healthy
    fat which cushions the organs and other tissues.    Once you
    are on the calorie restricted diet and when the body demands energy, the HCG hormone will ensure that
    that energy is released from the stored fats and not from your lean muscle mass.

    It is a bit pricey, but is well worth the extra money.

    And to add variation to it Beckham splits that into a third ponytail up high flowing into the traditional

    woman’s figure, it also shows more skin that we would like.
    The list of celebrity fashion mishaps is seemingly endless.
