I have known Rebecca for ages. I taught her at church when she was 12 years old. I have always been in awe of what a remarkable young women she has been. It was such an honor for me to be able to watch her grow into the women she is.
Rebecca and Jake both served LDS missions at the same time in the same mission…however they didn’t know each other. They both were to arrive back in Salt Lake City on the same date, on the same flight. However Jakes flight was changed and he arrived back in Utah later that day. Later that week they both joined a mission Facebook page where they met each other for the first time. Jake asked Rebecca out and it was love. Later they got engaged and sealed the deal in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.
They held their reception at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building downtown Salt Lake City.
Rebecca has always loved the color purple and so it seemed only fitting that their day was sprinkled with purple.
I want to wish Rebecca and Jake the happiest of lives together.
