The Wonderful Reason I Added Another Name to My Genealogy Database

You know what's fun? Adding another name to my Legacy Family Tree database. But this time I wasn't adding a name because of genealogy research I had done. No. This time I added the name of our lovely new daughter-in-law following the wedding of our second-oldest son and his beautiful bride. And it certainly was wonderful to add her name to our family tree.



Our son and his fiancé (now wife) were married in the Oakland California Temple. They were sealed for time and all eternity. Members of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that marriages performed in the holy temple can last throughout the eternities and not end at death.



Our son and daughter-in-law were blessed with gorgeous weather on their wedding day. It was a bit overcast and foggy on our way from our hotel to the Oakland Temple, but it cleared up beautifully.

The Oakland California Temple is absolutely beautiful, not only inside, but outside as well.



The gorgeous photos I'm sharing with you today were taken by Marielle Hayes, owner of Marielle Hayes Photography. She did a fantastic job photographing the wedding of our son and daughter-in-law. Please check out her website by clicking HERE.

In addition to the photos taken around the beautiful Oakland Temple grounds, Marielle took some stunning photos of our son and daughter-in-law along the coast.





Marielle was able to prepare eighteen photos for our family to use at the wedding open house we hosted in our area about a week after the wedding. I can't wait to see the rest of her photos!

We love our new daughter-in-law already and are so happy she's now part of our family!

I'll be sharing more photos of the wedding on my personal blog, Jana's Place. I hope you'll join me there as well.

Thanks for reading!
