Derek's youngest sister Whitney was married earlier this month. We were thrilled for her, and that she and Stan were getting hitched. They met while helping to build a home for a family in need in Tijuana Mexico a few summers ago, and after last years trip, began dating. Stan is a wonderful man and a perfect match for our sweet Whitney. We are so happy for them and thrilled to have a handy man in the family (Stan is a contractor & very, very skilled in his craft!). They were married on a beautiful day in the Twin Falls Idaho Temple. The sun was shining and the breeze was subtle. After the sealing and ceremony, the reception was that night. The venue was a perfect mix of rustic and chic, exactly what Whitney was looking for. The rich hues of deep burgundy, gold, and navy were the perfect accent colors to the thick cut logs, and the beautiful cake. It was a wonderful day celebrating two wonderful people! Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Hatt!
