Ryan and Cherisa were sealed in the Manti Utah LDS Temple in April, on the most beautiful spring day. Typical for Utah, the week before there had been rain and snow, so we didn't know how the weather would be for their wedding, but it was perfect! The Manti Temple is special to Cherisa, because several members of her family serve in it. Her great uncle performed the ceremony, and a lot of both of their families traveled to attend.
The nice thing about Ryan and Cherisa's wedding was that they had their reception the night before, so after their sealing, we spent about 1.5 hours doing family pictures and some bridal portaits around the temple, then we headed to a short, less formal luncheon for the wedding guests, and then Ryan and Cherisa took off on their honeymoon straight from there! Such a great idea! They planned to spend 2 weeks touring national parks throughout Utah - funnest honeymoon ever!
