Thank you Jami for the tag…I’ve never heard of that before but I’d be happy to tell our story!
Where did you meet your husband?
Well, we were both attending the LDS Business College and one day I was walking into my art History class and he was walking out and we “bumped” into each other. He lived down in the Provo area and so did I so he volunteered to give me a ride up there with his friend Michael Papworth.
What was the first thing you said?
I am pretty sure he used this line that he thought was so clever because it didn’t sound like a pick up line, but started a conversation. Come to find out later, that was his line that semester that he used for all the girls. How sweet. He said, “Hey, where are you going?” I probably said, “uhh…to art history…”
Where was your first date?
Honestly…I have no idea…We dated for a month or so in 2004, but I wouldn’t really say we went on “dates.” Second time around (about a year later) was definitely more of a relationship and I think that first date we drove up Provo Canyon to this girl scout camp and went to Chevy’s with my mom!
Where was your first kiss?
We drove up to Rock Canyon and hiked along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (I think that is what it’s called) and boom. It happened right there above the city lights. How romantic.
Did you have a long or short courtship/engagement?
I’m not really sure…we dated for about a month then broke things off for a year or so and the rekindled the flame the next year and were married 6 months later.

Where did you get engaged?
There is this gazebo on top of a mountain above Provo and I could never figure out how to get there. He found out the way and so we took a small hike and when we got there he had some friends set out roses and a wedding announcement that he had made and it had our names and our picture. He got down on one knee, pulled out a ring pop, and asked if I would marry him! I thought he was joking, but when I realized it was real I said, “YES.” Our friends were in the bushes taking pictures of the whole thing.
Where did you get married?
Oakland California Temple
How did the reception go?
It was absolutely fantastic!! The house we had it at was adorable and it was the perfect fall wedding! I wouldn’t change a thing!
The Honeymoon?
We drove up through northern California and then up the Oregon coast and ended in Portland for a second reception with Shaun’s friends and family.
Whose turn is next?
How about Alisha Whitman!
