Provo Temple

The entire Brown family, minus Tyler who is on a mission. 13 kids altogether!

Robin and Clayton on their way out of the temple.

Robin and Clayton in front of the temple fountains at sunset, they should have hired me to do their pictures, huh!

Robin, Clayton, and Robin's three kids. Clayton got married and became a father all in one day!
Well, Clayton Brown is married! Clayton and Jason were good friends in high school, went to Rick's for a while together, and have just been friends for years. In fact, everyone in Helena, Montana knows the Brown family, infamous for having 13 kids. He got married last Saturday in the Provo temple since we live so close we had to make it down. Two of Jason's other friends from Helena, Rich and Mark, drove down to our place on Friday and picked up Jason to head down to Provo for one last night with single Clayton. They stayed there for the night and hung out the next day. After Cassidy's basketball game the kids and I headed to Provo as well, about an hour drive (depending on traffic). I had to go because I promised Jason's sister, Jill, that I would take lots of pictures and I knew Jason couldn't be trusted to do that.
We waited outside the temple, a beautiful fall day for mid-November, for the happy couple to come out then headed over to the church for the evening. It was a beautiful reception with lots of food, family, and even some entertainment. Some of the Brown girls did a dance, then Clay's new wife played the piano while one of his sisters sang a song. Finally it was time for something they do at every reception, four of the Brown sisters did a lip sync and dance, it was really cute.
We stayed for almost the entire reception and ate a ton of food and enjoyed catching up with the people that we saw there as well as with Rich and Mark.
Robin has three kids from a previous marriage, they are 8, 5, and 2, so Clayton gained a wife and three kids all in one day. He was so happy that he said his face hurt from smiling so much. They make a very cute couple and we wish them them all the happiness in the world.

Thanks for taking such great pictures! All the Browns look amazing! Was Lona there? I couldn't tell in the family picture who some of them were. Anyway, looked like a blast, and I love your straight blond hair!
Hope all is well!
