Liz and Jacob show off their footwear, which they put on before coming out of the temple to greet their admirers.
The bouquet Liz is holding was prepared by her new mother-in-law, Kristi.

Jacob and Liz, moments after they came out the temple doors to be greeted by family and friends, following their wedding ceremony.
The Sealing ceremony in the Temple took place at approximately 11 a.m., Saturday, June 10.
In this picture, standing behind Liz, is her sister Rebecca and other members of her family, including her mother, Marianna, Marianna's husband (dark beard), and Liz's grandfather, Hans Woolf in the blue sport coat and bow tie.

Friday, June 9, family and close friends in possesion of Temple recommends, were in attendance at an evening endowment session at the Rexburg Temple as Elizabeth "Liz" Whitaker received her own endowments and we were privileged to be present in endowment session with her.
This was a sacred, beautiful and joyous experience for all of us!
As we exited the Temple after the session, I stepped out ahead of the group to take this picture. As you can see, Jeffery promptly instructed everyone to go into "stroll mod."
Left to right, Jacob & Liz, with her father and step-mother, Curt & Mary Whitaker, following behind, and two of Liz's roommates. In front, we have Adele, Jeffery, Kristi and their dear friend Tabby Mayne on the far right.

Strings of lights and strings of multi-colored cloth flags were hung above the cultural hall floor as part of the decoration. Liz's sister, Rebecca "Becca" told me that she and Liz cut each piece of cloth, edged them and sewed them together in these long strings.
As you can see the tables will be covered with multi-colored table clothes.
Kristi and her girls were busy, preparing floral arrangements for each of the tables and for other locations in the hall.
That tall woman in the background with the grey hair is Liz's grandmother Woolf. She and her husband, Hans were there, busily helping, full of good humor and friendliness. It was nice to meet them.

Friday, June 9, beginning at 11 a.m., parents, grandparents, family members and friends of both Liz and Jacob, arrived at the Rexburg 4th Ward chapel on 2nd South, across from the University. The decoration effort for the wedding reception was underway with Liz's mother in charge. It was fun to meet Liz's family, her mother, father, step-mother and her grandparents and other family and friends who came to help.
