LDS Temple Tips

The temple is a beautiful, lovely place filled with peace and serenity. However, the first time receiving your endowments could prove to be a bit overwhelming. Here are some insiders’ tips for practical ways to get ready for your temple endowments.

Eat energy food beforehand: Don’t let nerves get the better of you! Your first endowment will take roughly 4 hours, so be sure you have a healthy, energizing, filling meal before you go in. The day will be quite long filled with an overload of information, so treat yourself right.

Plan for a good time of day: Select a time to go through the temple that isn’t too early or too late! Either way, you could end up drained and less alert than you’d like to be. If mid-morning is your best time for feeling energized, go with that! If you thrive in the afternoon, select a time then so that you can truly be at your best!

Better safe than sorry: When you go through the temple, you’ll come out with your new garments! In light of this, wear an outfit you can confidently say will cover them perfectly, meaning high necklines, substantial sleeves, and a skirt that comes past your knees. You’ll already feel a little out of your element at first, and wearing an outfit that you need to constantly pull up or down can add an extra layer of discomfort. Experiment with different clothes and different garment styles at another time. For that day, play it safe!

Listen and learn by the Spirit: As you’ve probably heard, yes the temple endowment is different, but it certainly is lovely, comforting, and peaceful. If you enter the house of the Lord with an open heart and an understanding mind, it will all feel quite familiar. The promises are beautiful, and the covenants are sacred. With the right mind-set, you’ll feel right at home.

 

 

 

Check out this beautiful inspiration shoot! I love that brides are more often using very natural settings for their photos. What better way to showcase bridal beauty than amidst the natural beauty of our Utah landscape.

From the wedding planner: I had the complete honor of planning this simple wedding for Tiffany and Josh. 
 

Featured Wedding Shoot

 
Tiffany had a dream of being married in the temple, as she says in her video interview for The LDS Bachelorette, she did make it on the show and ended up finding her one true love through friends!
 
I want to take you through her engagement journey with Amanda Hendrickson Photography- the couple had their shoot on a rainy day, but that didn't dampen their mood a bit!
 
What I love about these images is you can tell that Amanda is letting them feel comfortable on camera. As the shoot progresses, you can see their reluctance and nerves drop and out pops this amazing and funny couple!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The couple wanted a really simple wedding and were on a tight budget but really wanted to invest in pictures that not only captured her dream of a temple marriage but also her love and adoration for Josh. Briar Bear Photography took the temple pictures, and I am swooning over her creative angles and crisp shooting. 
 
Tiffany loves the color purple and Native Flower Company did a fabulous job on her florals! It matched the theme of this whole wedding- simple and low key alongside pop and personality!
