Mr. & Mrs.

After a 21-month-long engagement, Matt and I were finally married on June 2, 2009, in the Salt Lake Temple.
The day welcomed us with sunny skies and a brief rainstorm just for good luck. Since our sealing was in the afternoon, we were able to sleep in and enjoy a relaxing morning, which included a short run for me and nine holes of golf for Matt.

It was a quiet Tuesday afternoon at the Temple, and the ceremony itself was beautiful and perfect--everything we ever dreamed of and more. We held a small dinner celebration that evening at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building with one-hundred-fifty of our closest family and friends.

Then Matt whisked me away for a mini-honeymoon in Park City before our big hometown receptions that Friday and Saturday. Many details and pictures are sure to come but for now, please enjoy these highlight videos of our wedding day.

This video is a picture slideshow of Matt and I growing up and dating. Since it was played during dessert at our wedding dinner, we tried to keep it short and sweet with just two songs.
Our videographer, Lilly, produced the video below. The song, All I Need by Mat Kearny, was part of our very first date.

This final video is our absolute favorite. It was made by my insanely talented little brother Christian. He's only 15 & made it using just our regular video camera (can you believe it?), and even included a clip from the day Matt asked me to marry him. Seriously, Christian is INCREDIBLE! Check it out:

Pictures coming soon!

We have a new blog!

When we first got a blog, every single combination of our names/nicknames together was already taken. So I settled for ashleylovesmatt, and then felt silly--like a love-struck 3rd grader--every time I had to tell someone the URL. (Although, I guess that's not entirely inappropriate, considering that I did, in fact, have a crush on Matt when I was in 3rd grade...)
I've since learned that you can use hyphens in a blogspot URL and figure there's no better time to switch the blog over than when we've had so many big changes and I'm a few months behind in the blog anyway.

So, without further adieu, please update your links and check out our new blog :-)
