As part of his master’s program at Brigham Young University, Andrew taught a Latin class. In this class, a sassy student caught his attention. This student was Mary. At the end of the semester, Mary planned on asking Andrew to tutor her in Latin over the summer. Instead, Andrew asked her out on a date. The two would spend six years going on adventures together, hiking and exploring their creative sides through bookbinding and quilting among many other activities.
For their wedding, Andrew and Mary chose to travel from Salt Lake City, Utah to Sacramento. They held a small ceremony at the Sacramento LDS temple. Mary explains, “In the end, we decided we wanted our families and closest friends to be there to celebrate with us. It seemed like a great way to welcome one another to the family as a whole, as well as give our families a chance to see us become our own little family all in one day. In weddings from our faith community (us odd ball Mormons) we use the word “sealing” instead of wedding/marriage a lot. We believe that marriage is one of the things that carries on after life and into the eternities. So for us this event seals us together for “time and all eternity” and not “until death do us part,” which we know is part of many faiths around the world, but it is a big emphasis for us. I’m so happy to be part of Andrew’s “forever and always.”’
