10 Facts about Me: Celine Reese

Um, hey there.
I’m Celine. I thought I’d awkwardly share some facts about me that most don’t know, and that are slightly embarrassing to admit.

  1. I started a band in high school. It was the dorkiest, funnest thing ever, but I wrote songs and we performed at a local fair! We even had managers. I had a sweet drummer, bassist, guitarist, a couple of back-up/duet buddies for different songs, and we had such a blast doing it. I can’t seem to track down videos of my band playing, but here’s a video of my sisters and I singing.

2. I met my husband in a library. Which is basically a dream come true for me. I tutored him in English (I LOVE SCHOOL, more on that later) and he faked a paper to ask me out. IT WAS INSTA LOVE. STILL IS. Here’s a video from the year we met :)

3. I am obsessed with pizza. Like, I am an obnoxious snob about pizza as well. On my wedding day, we gathered a ton of friends and families over and ordered 10 New York Style Pizzas. DELICIOUS.

4. I TRAVEL. A lot. I studied abroad in Europe in 2014, and I’ve never stopped since. I’ve been to Ireland, England, Wales, Austria, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland… and I’ve lived in NYC, San Antonio, Texas (GO SPURS), Seattle WA, Sacramento CA and have lived in Rexburg, Idaho for 7 years now.

Places we’ve been in the US:
Boston, Colorado, Washington, Los Angeles, Portland, NYC, St. George, UT, Park City, UT, and oh so many more.

I have a baby. She’s brilliant and adorable and spunky and drives me wild. She’s stubborn and loves food and is about to start walking at nine months. I love showing her how you can work and be a mama. It’s a beautiful thing.

Here are some jobs I’ve always wanted to have:
- A writer
- A motivational speaker
- A journalist
- A detective
- A teacher

I am a huge fighter to end pornography. I’ve seen it destroy relationships and I’ve seen it hurt so many people I love. However, I know that it can be overcome as all addictions can be. You can have strong relationships with people and change is completely possible! Feel free to email me if you ever need help. I created a 20 minute long documentary about it my senior year. It now has over 20,000 views on youtube and is the thing I’m the proudest of.

I am a MIX of a personality- I’m wild and crazy and spontaneous, but I thrive on a schedule and organization. I need it. I find the balance of both makes me the happiest.

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been a member my entire life, and made a real, full, honest conversion (like unshakeable, I know it is for real) when I finished the Book of Mormon when I was 15. I love having a relationship with my God and His Son, Jesus Christ. He’s my Savior and my Redeemer. However, this doesn’t mean I’m in any way judgemental of other people’s lifestyles or beliefs. I embrace people for who they are, and embrace my beliefs as well.

I am a total food snob. Europe and my father’s cooking RUINED ME.

BONUS. I strive to develop relationships with and focus on my couples that I work with. I get overjoyed when I connect with couples. It helps me capture their day better. So, hopefully you know me better, and I can’t wait to get to know you!
