Leatutufu Wedding

What a beautiful couple these two are.. I mean just the way they are always looking at each other they have that newlywed look, you know the one I'm talking about the one that makes them the only TWO in the room.. Oh to be young and in love... haha
The wedding day was fun and you could tell so much went into the wedding plans.. A BIG shout out goes out to the mother of the groom who has done nothing but plan this one to be a perfect day for her son and new daughter in law.. Susi the whole world should take notes..
Thank you two for allowing me to capture your first moments as husband and wife, its such a special time may you both never loose that feeling.. May the Lord bless your new family with the feeling that you have today for the rest of your lives, may you always remember it in your heart and in your mind..

Tuiasoa Family

Have you ever seen a family where every single member of that family is well... BEAUTIFUL... That is the case with the Tuiasoa family, the sons handsome, the daughters beautiful, the parents all of the above and then some.. lol.. I have known this family forever (well that's what it seems like).. The parents are such kind hearted (not sure the spelling) people you can only imagine how the kids have all turned out.. I can see a little bit of the parents in each of them, the way they laugh, smile and the way they treat each other and especially their spouses these siblings were raised with love, that you can tell... I have childhood memories with them, some good some WE ALL NEED TO FORGET (hint hint) and some brought us to such a laughter tears were coming out.. I love this family, thank you guys for such a wonderful afternoon its always good to get together with family...

The Mounga family + a graduation

Ring... Ring.. Ring..
Me: "Hello"
David "Mom I lost my money."
Me "What money."
David "My money that you gave me, can you come bring me some money I'm here in Provo with no money mom and I'm hungry."
Me "David didn't you eat with the rest of the football camp kids?"
David "Yes, but I'm still hungry and they are ordering pizza, please mom can you come?"
Me "The younger kids have things to do and I cant come until later tonight when your dad gets home to stay with them."
David "Please please please please mom can you come right now."
That was the phone call I received while my son attended BYU football camp this year, and as would any mom my heart fell for his lil hungry cries (even though I knew he had eaten).. I called my husband and told him HIS son had called and needed some money and for him to leave work and go take him money, my husband of course responded he's fine and can wait until we go tomorrow, I hung up on him ( for those of you not married that's code for I'M MAD.. lol) 2 minutes later my husband called back and told me he called his friend that lives in Provo and him and his wife would run David some money... A short time after my son called and said "Oh thank you mom they brought it.."
And you all guessed it.. This is the family that ran and took money to my son David..
This story was just to show everyone the kind of family the Mounga family is.. ( I'm not sure if the sentence before this was grammar correct lol) I could never tell them how much I appreciate them for saving my sanity. I knew that I would of thought of nothing else except my son and getting him his money.. (by the way for those of you that know my son know that he really would of been fine without the money) yes my husband says I baby them to much.. lol..
Va congratulations on completing your schooling, what an example you are to us mothers who keep thinking it cant be done or that it would be to hard. You have set such an example to everyone.. And again THANK you for saving my sanity and easing my heart by taking money to a kid you had never met and for a mother you hadn't met yet... May the Lord be with you and your family as you enter a new chapter in your life, and may the students at BYU nursing know how lucky they are to have you as a teacher next semester...

The Pilivi Wedding...

You have to love all the fuss that goes around the church when the bride get there.. So beautiful.

I love the grooms face here when he get his first look at his bride coming down the aisle.

I caught these two exchanging glances with a smile during the ceremony.. They looked at each other as if they were the only two in the room....

Thank you so much Pilivi family for allowing me to capture your wedding and what an experience it was.. Everything was so thought out and so perfect all the planning and all the details that went into it, really paid off..
May the Lord bless you both as you enter a new chapter in your lives, and may he bless that you both always look at each with as much love and affection as you did today..
