Provo City Center Temple

Everyone!!! The Provo City Center Temple is COMPLETE! Wahoo!  This means new pictures are up in my Picasa album, AND that there's a public open house going on starting this weekend through early March.  If you'll be in central or northern Utah at any time for the next 6 weeks or so I highly recommend stopping by, it looks amazing.

In case you didn't know, the Provo City Center Temple was built inside the facade of the old Provo Tabernacle, which was destroyed by fire in 2010.  I love that they kept the Victorian style, even though practically everything is new because very little was salvageable.  Knowing the people in the church history and decorating departments, chances are there are a handful of real Victorian-era pieces, such as the stained glass of Jesus Christ behind the recommend desk. (This was reclaimed from an old Presbyterian church in New York).
