On December 16, 1994 Christine and I looked at each other across the altar in the Logan LDS temple and committed ourselves to each other for time and eternity.

Then we partied with family and friends.

As usual, click on the picture for a larger version or on one of the the links below the picture. Some of these pictures were taken by our wedding photographer - the great Michael Slade.

Front of invitation

Because our wedding was in mid-December, we should have had a rubber stamp made up so we could print “NOT A CHRISTMAS CARD” on envelopes. Many people who received invitation did not come to our reception because, we found out later, they thought it was a Christmas card and set it aside to look at later.

Inside of invitation

The inside states the reception was held at the Wellington House Reception Center in Ogden, Utah. It was a magnificent and beautiful reception. In retrospect, I only regret that we didn't have some get-down-and-party music.

This is probably our favorite picture from our wedding day. Christine surprised me by getting it enlarged and framed for our fifth anniversary.

This picture was taken on the west side of the Logan temple.
