May Wedding at The Salt Lake Temple | Baylee + Birch | Utah Wedding Photography

April 19, 2017

Salt Lake Temple

Does the warm weather not bring with it this feeling that love is all around? Temple Square and the Salt Lake Temple is full of couples this time of year and I swear there are just love ballads playing on repeat through my head every time I go down there. It’s like a wedding video soundtrack on repeat! Anywho, way off subject here, but I’m not kidding, this time of year and this location is beautiful for a late spring/early summer wedding. Baylee and Birch were beaming and looking beautiful as they started their eternity together and the Salt Lake Temple looks extraordinarily beautiful this time of year too!

Bride’s Favorite Moment

On such an important day how do you pick a favorite? Baylee decided on her favorite being that she felt so much love from her new husband, their families, all of their friends, and everyone who came to the reception to support them and show their love.  And, of course, to all those that spread the love through all of their help with everything.  It was pretty dang neat to see how loved they are by so many people!

Groom’s Favorite Moment

Birch was in the same predicament with plenty of memorable moments but what topped his list was saying “I do.”

What They Want to Remember Most

They both agreed that what they want to always remember most it that first dance they had together and  the words of the song! I know your curiosity just peaked! I had to go look up these lyrics again to see what they spent their first dance listening to. They danced to Tenerife Sea by Ed Sheeran and loved every second of dancing and singing to each other.

The Honeymoon

If being newlyweds isn’t  paradise enough, these too ran away with each other and honeymooned in Maui, Hawaii. Awwww, how BEAUTIFUL!!! You know I am a beach girl myself.

Favorite From the Honeymoon

The two watched the sunset on the beach one night then the next morning they woke up at 3:00 am to drive to the top of the dormant volcano, Haleakala, to watch the sunrise. Sounds like quite the adventure!!  I’m sure it was SOOOO pretty!!

The Gifts

After all the gifts are opened and you feel so loved by so many, you start thinking about thank you  notes and how you’re going to tell so many people thanks. Well, someone gave these two a book of stamps and an iTunes gift card to help them through the thank you note writing process. Not completely unique, but different and definitely helpful!
