We absolutely love and adore backyard weddings - there is something so intimate about each and every one. Having the ceremony and reception in a backyard gives the couple so much freedom to be able to customize their day exactly the way they envision it, and that’s exactly what Sarah + Randy were able to do with their wedding this Summer. Every detail from the custom arch to the sweet picture frames to the table settings were done with love and care. We were also fortunate enough to be able to there for Sarah and Randy’s first look a few weeks before their wedding, and we were completely in awe of how totally in love these two are with each other. Check out their ceremony, reception, and first look in the highlight video below.
Hands down Alec & Natalie have some of the best speeches we’ve ever heard. They lasted in total about an hour and a half because these two had SO many people have SO many wonderful things to say about the two of them. We did our best to include the best parts of all of them but man oh man was it hard! They’ve known and loved each other for so long and so this day was a long-time coming for these two. It was absolutely magical to be able to witness such a momentous day. They were married by Natalie’s older brother in the sweetest ceremony, and there were plenty of tears shed throughout the whole thing, some of which may or may not have been by the two of us…. haha. We are thrilled for Alec + Natalie and so grateful they chose us to be there to capture this day for them!
The most absolutely stunning parts of Courtnee & Jaden’s wedding day were the hand-picked details. Courtnee designed and constructed all of her own tables capes. She literally conceptualized her dress design and had someone make it for her after she drew it out for them. Their ceremony backdrop was customized with quotes and pictures. Each and every detail was so well-thought out and personalized that it was truly amazing to see. We’ve had the pleasure of knowing Courtnee since high school, and so we’ve been able to watch her and Jaden fall in love and stay in love, with that once-in-a-lifetime-soul-mate kind of love. They really and truly love each other with everything they have. This intimate backyard Bear Lake Destination Wedding was seriously one of a kind and we are so glad we got to be there to witness these two finally become husband and wife.
These two are SO much fun! It was constant laughing and teasing between the two of them all night long. They are so clearly each others very very best friends! We are allllll for it. We also definitely insta-stalked Kimmy before her wedding and she gets the award for most hilarious instagram captions ever. Safe to say we are obsessed with these two. We wanted to create a fun, upbeat, home-movie style video for them to match their happy, carefree love! This was also our first time shooting at both the Provo LDS Temple and The White Shanty in Provo. It was honestly the perfect venue for Kimmy + Ely! Can we just say that Winter weddings are completely underrated? These two did everything perfectly. Join in on the fun below!
We are so happy to have met these two sweethearts! They were so kind and welcoming and know how to throw a serious dance party! These two are the epitome of why we do what do - they just radiate a genuine love for each other and we felt so lucky to have been there. Also, working with Talia from Talia Photography was a dream come true! Everything about this day was perfection.
Bella happens to be one of our greatest friends from High School - we danced together with her for 3 years! She is deeply caring, whip smart, and absolutely hilarious. Getting to film her wedding was such an honor! We are so happy Bella found Jake and so grateful for how happy they make each other! (Also, sorry Bella, but insert Twilight: New Moon joke right here.... hahaha). Also, we've said it before and we'll say it again, Winter Weddings are totally underrated! (P.S. Don't miss the amazing balloon send-off at the end of this video!)
