Send Us Your Temple Stories From Friday And Saturday

If you have a story, an image, or anything to share from Friday or Saturday at the Temple this year, we want to see it.

My friend Sarah and I are working on a project that covers the span of time from midday Friday to midday Saturday at the Temple of Juno. That encompasses at least five weddings, the gnarliest dust storm of the week, and many more emotional highs and lows.

Were you there? Send your memories to us {at} Make them as long or as short as they need to be. Please include names to go with your stories, though the names can be whatever you want.

Please only share information you’re willing to share publicly online.

You’ll hear more about this project very soon.

We love you,
Jon & Sarah

Thanks forever to Scott London for the photo.

    You should really post a DEADLINE for submissions. :-)

    The sooner the better, while the experience is still fresh. The work in progress doesn’t have a deadline for us, either. But we are dying to hear about other people’s time at the temple, while we are still processing our 24 hours.

    The Temple was a place for me where time stood still and the truth became real …… my gratitude to all, not only the magnificent women and men who crafted this thing of beauty, but as well to all who visited the Temple of Juno, imbuing it with our own mana – our chi – our life’s energy- for as the week wore on, the Temple grew in its own presence – filled with our tears and our smiles, our pain and all the while, providing a magnificent sanctuary for us just to be.
    The sharing on Saturday was the culmination of an amazing week of spirit, as many (myself included) chose to stand in witness to our own process and the tenderness that flowed forth from our hearts – some broken and others repaired – it was a place for us all to come together in the spirit of the Man, in the spirit of Love and in the spirit of each other. Blessings to all.
