Cactus and Tropicals Wedding

A darling girl we know got hitched a while ago. It was very beautiful reception. They had it at a place called "Cactus and Tropicals". I had never been there before. But is is very pretty.

Sign in book table..... Aren't they a cute couple? I think so....

It's kind of up on a hill in Draper. So you can see the hills of South Valley all the way to the West Hills of the Salt Lake City valley. It was a beautiful night too!

There was a lovely view off the upper deck....
It was a beautiful afternoon....

This young woman who was getting married I have a very soft spot in my heart for. She and her sister were the girls who spearheaded a Festival of Trees Christmas Tree for my son Danny after he was killed in a car accident one rainy October Day.


Some of her bridesmaids....hi girls! Aren't you so cute! 
 She had all her friends in the young women's organization at church make ornaments in Black and Red, the Alta High School colors. And she added hockey ornaments of every kind and had the Alta High Team Danny played on sign a hockey stick. Then they had Alta High Hawks flags on the tree too. It was such a beautiful thing.


Some of the boys in the ward who were Danny's friends helped too. Then later somebody anonymously  bought the tree and had it delivered to our house the week before Christmas. It's one of the nicest, sweetest things anyone has ever done for us,...... the Danny Tree. I love this young woman, her sister, and her family a lot.


Her name is Megan. She is beautiful inside and out...Remington is not too bad either ...:D

We keep the Danny Tree up at our cabin at Bear Lake. It is a wonderful reminder to us to be as giving to others at Christmas as we felt others showered us with love and generosity, and their hearts. Maybe it's something good to try to do all year?
Beautiful and unusual flowers were everywhere.....

BRIDAL PARTY....(don't the guys always look just SO INTERESTED in receptions?) LOL ..
And lots of pretty statuary and pottery too.... I've gotta get one of these for my house! Love it! 

I wanted to take this one home with me!
