Sarah & Michael | Silver Fork Lodge

Sarah & Michael sealed their love at the rustic Silver Fork Lodge in Big Cottonwood Canyon. The lush green canopy of pine and aspen provided such an amazing background for their love story.

Their wedding was so much fun to document. From the busy, getting ready moments in the cozy, wood cabins to the spot-on tango first dance on the SIlver Fork's patio, this wedding was humbly grand.

We are so fortunate for all the great outdoor venues in Utah, this location is on the top of our list. We wish the best to these two!

Caitlin & Christian | Cactus & Tropicals

Deep in the lush green of Cactus & Tropicals in Draper, Caitlin and Christian sealed their love.  It was such a treat to photograph this sweet and thoughtful couple's wedding celebration!  

The little details really stood out, especially those from family such as the ring box, cufflinks and garter.  Vintage dinner table settings and other decorations made this wedding feel pretty darn cozy.  Cactus and Tropical's incredible floral brand, Flora, created a colorful and cute bouquet. 

The reception was in full fun effect for the toasts and following dance party.  Oh, how this party liked to dance!  Caitlin and Christian pulled out their surprise weapon and performed an incredible dance to the B-52's, "Rock Lobster."   

With so much love and fun in the air, Caitlin and Christian had an unforgettable evening.  We wish the best to these lovely lovebirds!

Stephanie & Nick | Millcreek Canyon

We had a lovely autumn groomal session with Stephanie and Nick up Millcreek Canyon.  The lovely fall colors and the layers of carpeted leaves were dreamy.  We love shooting groomals because we can get great portraits with more time, less stress and hand-picked locations.  Congrats Stephanie & Nick! 

Jessica + Aaron | Memorial House | Salt Lake City, Utah

Jessica and Aaron shared their vows under the autumn glow of their harvest moon themed wedding.  The 100-year-old Memorial House is tucked in the lush woods of historical Memory Grove, and served as a perfect place for these two newlyweds.   

Jessica and Aaron had large and loving families and the party was a true celebration.  This fun couple adored their pup and he was alongside the entire day.  

We loved Jessica and Aaron's humor and their kind demeanors made it fun to document their special day.  Congratulations J+A!

Ashley + Nick | Mid-Mountain Lodge | Park City, Utah

Ashley and Nick exchanged their vows on a gorgeous September afternoon on top of a picture perfect mountain in Park City.  The Mid-Mountain Lodge is perfectly nestled in the heart of Park City Resort's green, forested hills.  

Nick is an avid skier so we made sure to ride the chairlift into the autumn aspens for some fresh air and photos.  

Ashley and Nick had a special, small ceremony and reception in the beauty of nature.  We're glad we got to be there to document it.  Congratulations to this awesome couple!  

Alex + Larry | Big Cottonwood Canyon

We feel blessed to have such monumental canyons in our backyard.  Alex and Larry created a special and intimate ceremony in the heart of Big Cottonwood Canyon.  The beautiful ceremony was nestled in the forest next to an open, green meadow.  Afterwards, the party headed down to the Murray Chapel for some fabulous barbecue and good times.  Congratulations Larry and Alex!

Megan + Russell | Louland Falls

Congratulations to Megan and Russell!  This handsome couple shared their wedding vows at Louland Falls in Parley’s Canyon.  The sun-soaked canyon vistas at Louland Falls made a dreamy backdrop for the ceremony.

We had a fun portrait session up in the sandstone slot canyon.  Megan looked gorgeous in her vintage-inspired dress and Russell kept us all smiling with his clever wit.  They looked amazing standing together as a married couple for the first time.

The sun set and we descended the stone steps to the reception on the patio.  All the way from L.A., the Joshua Payne Orchestra, had already started playing their captivating jazz sounds.  The party was warm and vibrant and as the light faded, we really enjoyed shooting the celebration under the strands of cafe lights.

Ashley + Charlie | Big Cottonwood Canyon

We're super excited to share these photos from Ashley and Charlie's gorgeous mountain wedding!  These two lovelies had an unforgettable ceremony and reception in the heart of Big Cottonwood Canyon's lush, green forest.  

Ashley and Charlie definitely know their food, and the staffs of both Eva's and the Blended Table worked hard to ensure the food deliciously flowed all evening.  Music flowed all evening as well; the Joshua Payne Orchestra provided the perfect music to complete the mood.  The delightful people, beautiful backdrop, and great food made this wedding one of the finest we've seen. 

Ashley and Charlie are an amazing couple, so kind and so much fun.  We truly enjoyed documenting their special day and wish these two lovebirds many congratulations!
