Helsinki Temple

Most of you know we got married in the LDS Helsinki Temple. It is actually located in Espoo, but the Espoo Temple doesn't sound as good. It was built in 2006 and is gorgeous. In Temples people are married for time and all eternity, not just until death. It was a great experience. In the room where the ceremony took place there were two mirrors and when you look in them you can see forever, it was a good visual reminder that now I will get to be with magus Maris forever!!! This was a picture from our first time to the Helsinki Temple, this was March 2009, almost exactly a year before our wedding. We went with many other members from Estonia. Maris got baptised only 2 days before.
This is a picture taken in July, we also visited the Temple together. This time we knew we were going to be married and we booked the temple for March.

This is a picture from the same July trip. Maris is so nunnu! The temple is really beautiful in the summer, the grounds all around are green and gorgeous.

This was the temple on the day of our wedding! It was still beautiful with all the white snow around. It was a bit cold, but the wedding took place inside! So that was great. After all it is love that makes a wedding beautiful not the weather.
