Taite+ Ryan| Married

This wedding had a bit of old and new, and the combination set the stage for a lovely celebration!  From the grounds of the Salt Lake Temple, to the house Taite’s grandparents built, the unique bridesmaids gowns and the color pallet added such a fun modern twist to these classic romantic settings.

Everyone was filled with smiles and cheers as Mr. and Mrs. Pace made their first appearance. One of the best parts was all the little nieces and nephews running up to them for a hug, it was as if they saw favorite Prince and Princess at Disney. So magical. As our group waited for the steps at the SLC temple, it was such an honor to be around this incredible couple and see the love that everyone around them had for each. They both are so special, unique and kind and there was no shortage of love to spread around on this magical day!

It is no secret that I LOVE backyard wedding receptions especially on days where the weather is PERFECT, but then to see that their reception was held at the house that the bride’s grandparents built was amazing and such a unique and personal detail; and I’ll tell you it doesn’t get any classier than that!  And then you SEE this backyard, and your heart skips a beat! It was oh so lush and green that her florals of cranberry and maroon jumped into life.  Leslie Dawn Events did an INCREDIBLE job setting up the tables and details to perfection and kept the night running on schedule and oh so smooth! I truly believe that a planner can make all the difference in a wedding day (both for the bride, as well as parents of the bride and groom) and Leslie was pure perfection at her job!

Along with beautiful landscape and details, the bride and groom chose to feed their guests in such a fun and DELICIOUS way!  The hamburgers, french fries, milkshakes and even a build your own soda bar were out of this world tasty! Don’t worry I made sure to “taste test” to make sure everything was as yummy as it smelled! 🙂 I loved their relaxed take on greeting their guests and making sure their guests were having just as much fun on wedding day as they were!

Everyone was absolutely enjoying themselves, and everyone stayed to the end to send the bride and groom off in style, with a beautiful sparkler exit! Then, the bridesmaids decided to take it one step further and jumped into that GORGEOUS pool to end the night perfectly!
