Dallin + Cienna
Dallin and I eloped on Maui and it was such a special day! We spent the day going to all of our favorite places to eat on the island and we even went to the Maui Aquarium. Nothing too crazy because we spent the week before having a blast cliff jumping, snorkeling, and relaxing on the beach. I got ready with Dallin’s mom and sister and Dallin got ready with the company of his dad. Then we all met up at one of our favorite places on the island, Ho’okipa. This spot has gorgeous views and incredible cliffsides.
Dallin’s vows –
I just wanted to start out by saying I love you. I love you so much. I promise to always love you, even if you decide to adopt 50+ cats. I love the weird voices you make and the crazy songs you sing. I love your hair no matter what color it is. I love how forgiving you are, even when I make the mistake. I love how you can overcome anything, even when it seems impossible. I love you Cienna with all your flaws and mistakes and I always will.
The first day we met was on Christmas and I will always remember it as being one of the best days of my life. When we first met it felt as though we already knew each other. The first week we would always say ‘wow, I can’t believe we have only known each other 3 days. It feels way longer than that.’ As well I have never told my family this but I asked Cienna to be my girlfriend after the second day of knowing her. I know, a little crazy, but it worked out and it felt like I already knew her. Which I’m sure we did before this life. I was so comfortable around you Cienna and I could be myself. While we were on our first date you shared how you have always dreamed about getting married in the San Diego temple. I was a little surprised by that but hearing that made me so happy. Even though we are getting married on a gorgeous cliffside in Hawaii, I promise that in a year from today I will make your dream a reality and we will be sealed in the San Diego Temple for time and all eternity.
One of my favorite memories we had together was at Thousand Steps Beach when we took our trip to California. When we were trying out our first business idea, Air Inspiration, we were taking pictures of you for it. When we finished we put the camera down and we started chasing each other. We ran all over the beach and in the sand and were having so much fun! I always want to have moments like that where you and I are running around chasing each other having the time of our lives. Especially as we pursue photography more and more, and especially at the beginning I will always want to have the camera in my hand, and I will be stressing out about getting the best picture so we can be successful. But I promise that I will put the camera down from time to time to chase you around and enjoy more sunsets, waterfalls, and other magical moments with you.
I thank Heavenly Father every day for you coming into my life and for everything he has done to help our relationship. From me bearing my testimony on the first date to feeling the spirit so strong and us crying for joy the night I decided I wanted to marry you, Heavenly father has always been there. I want us to always remember those most spiritual experiences we have already had and remember the eternal happiness we felt each time. I love you so much Cienna and I can’t wait to see where life takes us.”
Cienna’s vows –
I am absolutely obsessed with every little thing about you. Your laugh, your silly jokes, your dedication for the things and the people you love, the way you try to explain things to me. I am just so in love with you.
I still remember one of our first dates going and seeing Moana together and talking about how much we both wanted to live in Hawaii one day, and now here we are living our dreams and getting married on one of the most beautiful places on earth. I’m just so happy with you. You and I are always chasing after the craziest dreams, and I love that about us. I never want to stop chasing our dreams. I just want to live a lifetime with you making all our dreams a reality.
One of my favorite memories with you was being at the San Diego temple and just sitting there and knowing without a doubt in my mind that I wanted to marry you. I absolutely cannot wait to go to the temple with you so we can be sealed for eternity. I’m so blessed Heavenly Father sent me such an amazing man to spend my life with. From that very first time you bore your testimony to me I knew there was something special about you. You genuinely changed my entire life for the better and it means the world to me. Thank you Dallin for always helping to bring the Spirit into our lives.
I promise you that we will go to the temple together and be sealed for eternity. I promise to make you laugh and to keep joy in your life. I promise to chase after all of our crazy dreams with you. I promise to support you no matter what, and to always be there for you. Most importantly though I promise to never stop loving you.
Dallin I choose you, and I’ll choose you over and over again without a doubt in my mind. Because you are the only one that fought for me and made me believe that I was worth it, and for that I’ll always choose you.”
