Alana and Adam were married at Log Haven at Millcreek Canyon in Salt Lake City, Utah. Their gorgeous day was filled with autumn gold, russet, and peach colors (isn’t that bouquet breathtaking!?) with an accent of dusty miller colored bridesmaid dresses. The stunning backdrop of the Wasatch National Forest made for a ceremony that didn’t need much embellishment – it took place on a sandstone patio where a mossy waterfall framed the background. The cabin created a cozy place for dinner and dancing outside at night. We also love that their dog was in the wedding party, they made their own favors, and their guests threw lavender when they exited instead of bird seed – a wonderful idea that smells great! Thanks so much Pepper Nix Photography for sharing this inspiring outdoor wedding!
From the Bride…
Details of the Day:
We had homemade CDs for the favors (songs from the past 10 years together). We had them printed with a photo of us, and then bought kraft paper CD holders and applied a printer-sticker with a photo of my mom’s to the front of our initials she made out of twigs and copper wire. Also, V Chocolates- salted caramel in milk and dark chocolate. Julie at Layers made the most stunning cake we could have asked for. Julie listened to what we wanted and created something more than we imagined. Classy, simple, elegant and DELICIOUS. We loved that cake. Definitely a huge highlight.
Most Memorable Moments:
We laughed and cried the whole evening. It was more than we could have hoped for. To share such a magical, joyful and intimate evening with close friends and family was what made it so special. It was also incredibly powerful to share our vows with each other for the first time.
Advice for Future Brides:
When it comes down to it, the moments are the most important. Details have a place, but not in the moment as you celebrate and vow to a future with your one and only. Enjoy, savor and breathe! It went so fast! We were totally in the moment the whole evening and yet all of a sudden we were being pulled out the door and ushered into our car…make time slow down!
