detailsA River Runs Through It! A nature loving couple right at home in the great outdoors. A friends gorgeous ranch hosted this unforgettable wedding. Horse drawn wagons, swinging bridges, a hand made quilt as the guest "book", and a clearing in a meadow for the intimate and lovely ceremony. Wood benches with river stone seating "cards", with guests facing the river and the giant cottonwood tree with hanging florals and candles as the altar. The cocktail reception held afterwards at the historic old log building by the river,with fabulous appetizers and cocktails by Culinary Crafts of SLC. Moving to the reception guests found their seating assignments on cards strung on the groom's climbing rope, and found their long farm tables laden with lush greens, eggplant and tangerine tones in flowers, fruits and candles. Live music and 3 different amazing food stations set on the expansive lawn delighted all. Market lights illuminated the evening and especially the abundant dessert table styled perfectly and laden with a variety of sweets and fruits. Dancing and a sparkler exit ended the perfect night!

momentsCertainly one of the most poignant moments was watching the gorgeous bride coming through a perfect tunnel of trees with her parents, approaching a beaming groom who was so excited to see her. The rings had been placed in a special box tied to the altar tree and were taken out and handed to the groom by his "Best Sister". Wonderful toasts, and special dances and songs by a friend of the family who performed throughout.
thoughtsMy one and only son's wedding! I will forever count it a privilege to have been a part of designing and executing this wedding. His sweet bride also made my job so much fun and so easy! It was one of my great joys in my life to work together with long time friends to put together this week long set up, and I am so grateful for the generous friends who allowed us to use their remarkable property.
