I'm a married woman


I got married last week!!!

It seriously was the best day of my life. 

I am soooo in love with my husband, Mr. Jared Von Keetch.

We got a freaking ton of gifts that were addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Von Keetch.... Not to be confused with..........

Mr. and Mrs. Von Trapp

The Von Trapp Family:
[Gretel, Marta (I played her once in a play), Biretta, Kurt, Louisa, Fredrick, Liesel, Fraulein Maria, and Captain Von Trapp.]

No, no. We are just the Keetch's. In case you didn't know.. That is the KEETCH FAMILY. As in TACO AMIGO KEETCHS. As in KEETCH'S FRESH PEACHES. Ya.... We are pretty cool.

I've been asked about a million times this question:

"How's married life??"

I don't know what it is, but that question makes me seriously cringe. Probably because I have only been married one week, and all I have learned thus far is what sex is all about.. Someone needs to be original and come up with something else to say, like: 

"So, tell me your favorite thing about being married." 

or... something to that effect. 

Now that that is off my chest, I do want to mention one thing that really stood out to me about that day that I want my future kids to know about that day. I still get emotional when I talk about it with other people. Here is kind of a run down of our day:

We got married in the Salt Lake Temple. I was one of 5 brides that day, and I could not have been happier with that! I felt like a princess the whole day.

After the temple, we took pictures, kissed, held hands, etc.

Then we got to go to the luncheon where we met:

(a member of the Quorum of the 12 apostles)

That was freaking sweet.

During the luncheon My parents gave little speeches, Steff, Aly, and Cam did a musical number. An acoustic version of When You Look Me In The Eyes, by The Jonas Brothers. Completed with their own taco amigo version, When You Cook Me Crispy Fries. It was pretty clever.

Then Von got up and spoke. He told a lovely story about how Jared is the way that he is.
"Lord, make him a boy. And he did."
"Lord, make him like his mother. And he did."
"Lord, make him like me. And he did."

"Lord, make my son eternally happy. And then he met you, Anna."

It was wonderful.

After the luncheon, Jared and I went home and took a nap.
We seriously slept. No shenanigans going on at this time of the day, I promise.

Then we got to go to PARRRTAAAAY at our reception held at the beautiful Wadley Farms. 
My sister takes ALL of the credit for everything. The flowers (see link of my bouquet here), the centerpieces, all of the decor for that matter. She. is. AMAZING.

We went on our honeymoon to the Stein Eriksen Lodge, in Deer Valley.

I could not have asked for a better night, or a better day.

Everything was perfect. I am so so so happy, and in love. Jared is my best friend. We are total nerds together, but that is what makes us great. :)

Thank you to everyone who helped out on our special day. We love you!!!!
