As cool as that is! I feel it might have taken away the special day for each of the brides. I know each woman from the time she is old enough to go to school dreams of her special day of being married. This great that they all married in the temple but the men should have thought of thier wives first not the notarity of what they did. Kinda smacks of Pride.

Pride? Did you not read this article? Personally, I'd call your thoughtless remark "judgmental" and as to knowing what women "dream" excuse me, you do not know any of these brothers, sisters or their spouses, or what they went through or needed to do to be together on this day. Had you read the article, you'd have known what was most important to all of them was to be together as a family, and the only way to accomplish that was to have the weddings all occur on the same day. I'll put it in simple terms for you: Suppose you were the grandpa to these three girls and two boys and they had decided to spread things out-one on each weekend-over five weeks. Would you have 1) flown back and forth ten times 2) stayed in a hotel for five weeks, or 3) parked yourself at some relatives home for five weeks? What if they couldn't quite do five weeks, and split it up over six, ten or twelve weeks? That would only have made things more difficult.

This lovely family did not do this for any publicity. It wouldn't have gotten out at all except people pay attention when reservations are made, huge amounts of supplies are ordered, etc. and media folks like me find out and run with it. Yes, it makes great press, but they never sought it.

As I contemplate the sea of faces in the Celestial Room after these events, I'm fairly certain nothing they ever see again in this life will ever be that close to heaven. May God bless each of these unions, eternally.

What a remarkable and wonderful decision they made. There is nothing better than to be together(especially for this particular reason)as family and extended family. I would love to have been there to witness the precious spirit that I know was in abundance with these worthy couples. Wow....exciting and beautiful.

This is Mormon culture at its weirdest, and this is from someone who is LDS.

The neatest part is that they were all temple-worthy. Forget the naysayers. I thought it was great especially the part about withnessing each individual sealing and how special they made each. Sounds wonderful and very unselfish to me!

The news of these weddings went international, I read about the weddings in Australia. Here it was not mentioned that family was LDS or that it was in the Mesa Temple but from the pictures I knew it was in the Mesa Temple and found it so exciting. Families are forever, this family shows that love for each other and is a great example to all of us.
