A Pink & Teal 90’s Wedding | Camille + Tom

Camille and Tom are celebrating over 20 years of marriage and we loved taking a look back on their 90’s wedding. Even though styles have changed, brides and grooms today can learn a lot from them!

Camille + Tom

Camille and Tom were married on June 6, 1992, in the Idaho Falls Temple.

We met at Rick’s College, dated for 3 1/2 weeks, got engaged for 7 months. Married in the Idaho Falls Temple. I was 19, he was 22. 4 kids later, lots of trials (children going astray, 2 boys coming home early from missions, unemployment, now I have breast cancer) and we’re still going strong. We’ve had ups and downs, but because we were sealed, it helped us stay together through the hard times.

WHAT WAS WEDDING PLANNING LIKE FOR YOU?

Stressful, because my parents didn’t have any money, so I paid for everything using my leftover student loan money.

WHAT WERE YOUR WEDDING COLORS AND/OR THEME?

Light pink and teal. It was the early 90’s!

DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING STYLE.

As cheaply as possible, but still looking nice.

LOOKING BACK, WOULD YOU DO ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY ABOUT YOUR WEDDING PLANNING AND/OR WEDDING?

I would be nicer to my mom. She tried so hard with no money to work with.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE LDS COUPLES PLANNING A WEDDING?

Don’t spend so much money. Get a good photographer and the rest doesn’t matter in the long run. Don’t be extravagant. Save your money for important things.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR WEDDING RECEPTION!

We had two receptions and an open house. I grew up in Idaho Falls, but we had moved to Salt Lake. My husband is from Burley Idaho. His mom paid for a second full-on reception the day after the first one on Idaho Falls. Two weeks later we had an open house in Salt Lake. My parents transported the cake to all three!

We made mini cherry cream cheese cinnamon rolls ourselves and served them with pink lemonade. I love pink!

WHAT IS SOMETHING SPECIFIC THAT YOU REMEMBER ABOUT YOUR WEDDING?

I remember all the family members in the temple showing us their support. It was so wonderful knowing they loved us so much. However, neither of my brothers was there. One was on a school trip, the other was in basic training. I really wish they could have been there. My husband’s parents weren’t at the sealing. That is my only regret, missing family members.

VENDORS:

Our photographer had a list of poses we could choose from. This was before digital. I wish I had more photos. Don’t skimp on the photos! We made the centerpieces ourselves (wooden carousel horses). The cake was made by a family friend. We provided the ingredients and she made and decorated it as her gift to us.

  • "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
