A Natural, Elegant Mesa Wedding | Sierrah + Nicholaus

You may think of Arizona and picture a dry, cactus-filled desert. The natural elegance of Sierrah and Nicholaus’ wedding will prove otherwise. Keep reading for more information on their sweet love story and wedding planning tips.

Sierrah + Nicholaus

Sierrah and Nicholaus were married on April 28, 2018, in the Mesa Arizona Temple.

We met through mutual friends on Facebook, but I worked nights and he worked days so it was nearly impossible to go on a date. He then got a night job on top of his day job just so he could stay up and talk to me longer. We went on our first date and instantly fell in love, and it’s only grown bigger from that point on!


I worked full time and went to school online full time. I thought I might go crazy adding wedding planning to all of that, but I had so much help from my friends and family! It was a lot on my plate for a while but I’m just glad the planning is over with.

What were your wedding colors and/or theme?

Different shades of dark green with a little lavender.

Describe your wedding style.

Natural and elegant. Less is more!

Looking back, would you do anything differently about your wedding planning and/or wedding?

I would change nothing at all! I had my dream wedding all of the way.

What advice would you give LDS couples planning a wedding?

Stop worrying about the little things!!! It’s almost inevitable, but on your wedding day, it doesn’t even matter what anything looks like. You’re getting sealed for eternity with your sweetheart. The colors, flowers, cake, or anything won’t matter in the long run. Don’t let it get the best of you. And know that one thing will go wrong on your wedding day; just smile and remember the temple!

Tell us about your wedding reception!

Our reception was outdoors with lots of trees and grass. It was at our friend’s house and they had horses fences behind us and beautiful wooden handmade furniture that made the evening perfect!

What is something specific that you remember about your wedding?

I remember everything so well still, but coming out of the temple with my husband and seeing ALL of our family from New York, Virginia, and Utah there and being swarmed with love.

  • "One of the most beautiful, comforting doctrines of the Lord—one that brings immense peace, happiness, and unbounded joy—is that principle called eternal marriage. This doctrine means that a man and woman who love each other deeply, who have grown together through the trials, joys, sorrows, and happiness of a shared lifetime, can live beyond the veil together forever with their family who earn that blessing. That is not just an immensely satisfying dream; it is a reality." - Richard G. Scott

  • Dear Hate
I saw you on the news today
Like a shock that takes my breath away
You fall like rain, cover us in drops of pain
I'm afraid that we just might drown 
Dear Hate
You were smiling from that Selma bridge
In Dallas, when that bullet hit and Jackie cried
You pulled those towers from the sky
But even on our darkest nights
The world keeps spinning 'round

You were there in the garden, like a snake in the grass
I see you in the morning staring through the looking glass
You whisper down through history and echo through these halls
But I hate to tell you, love's gonna conquer all

Dear Love
Just when I think you've given up
You were there in the garden when I ran from your voice
I hear you every morning through the chaos and the noise
You still whisper down through history and echo through these halls
And tell me love's gonna conquer all
Gonna conquer all 
Song by Maren Morris
