We absolutely LOVE when our bride’s photographers send us their bridal and wedding sessions! This last week Anastasia, from Anastasia Strate Photography, sent us Dallin and Shayla’s gallery, and it is amazing! The colors are to die for!
“I promised myself I wouldn’t marry a blonde, let alone even date a blonde. I always went for the stereotypical tall, dark, and handsome. I was brainwashed to find my ‘Ken’ since I was stereotyped as the typical blond ‘Barbie’. I had made a mental list of everything I wanted in the man I married.
My list consisted of:
1. Tall, 6’4 to be exact
2. Tan and buff
3. Thick dark hair
4. Loves musicals and plays
5. Good dancer
I met Dallin on Saturday, March 29th, 2014. I had made plans with a friend and her boyfriend to go to the Color Festival in Spanish Fork. My friend’s boyfriend ended up bringing a friend, Dallin. When we got out of the car, he immediately started walking with me. We just started asking each other questions to get to know each other. I remember instantly feeling so comfortable with him.
It has been 2 ½ years since then and we have been together almost every day. Throughout the last 2 ½ years we have both changed and grown so much. We had to learn how to work out our problems together. Dallin is so different than what I thought I wanted, but he ended up being everything I needed. I fell in love with a spiritual, kind, hilariously dorky computer programmer. We balance each other out and make a great team!
We ended up getting married on my birthday 7/22/2016. It was the best birthday present I could have asked for.”
