The wedding took place in the LDS (Mormon) temple in Draper, Utah. This particular temple was dedicated in 2009. The room where the wedding takes place within the temple is called the sealing room, as the bride and groom are "sealed" to each other for time and all eternity. You can read more about our beliefs on that concept here. And you can view photos of the Draper Temple sealing rooms here.
And so it begins... Zakk and Rikki walking towards the temple

It's a little sad not having Rain here with us for this event. You can read about how he celebrated in Africa on his latest blog post. Rikki was engaged to be married (and her wedding date set) before Rain left for Africa, so we all knew that he'd be missing this huge day. Before he left on his mission, we visited the Draper Temple and had a wonderful experience there. He was able to visit the sealing room so that he could remember and imagine this moment from afar. In his Christmas package we mailed him his matching purple tie (her colors were purple and green).
