Rebecca and Jason beamed with excitement as they exited the temple to greet cheering family and friends waiting in the gale force winds blowing through temple square in Salt Lake City. Photos were attempted with hair blowing in all directions (for those with hair). Soon, Barbie and I were off to Draper, UT to a greenhouse/nursery where we would have the reception with tropical rains pelting the glass roof. It was a simple spread; cheese and crackers, mixed berries, saute'd meats with dipping sauces, sparkling lemonades and, of course, a huge cake of many colors (on the inside). Everyone pitched in to help.
Caitlin played the piano and sang a song that she wrote for Jason and Rebecca, followed by Rebecca performing a song she wrote specifically for Jason on their special day. Tears and lemonade flowed freely.
Barbie and I bid farewell to the newly wedded and as we drove back to the home of Barbie's parents, she observed with a very relaxed sigh, "That was the perfect day."
