Where do I begin with this wedding? There are so many special elements, I can’t even begin to mention them all. Let’s see…I’ll go back to a rainy day in January, when I met Jenna and her lovely, mom, Lorraine, at Les Madeleines in downtown Salt Lake City. I had plans to win them over with my sparkling personality and delicious Kouing Aman pastries. Jenna is a dark-haired beauty and intelligent business woman. She works as a wedding planner and designer with Planit PC in Park City, Utah, so I knew this would be an unforgettable wedding. Michael and Jenna were married on the Town Lift Bridge, followed by an ambiance-filled reception at Riverhorse on Main restaurant. Jenna curated the most beautiful details from around Utah, including a custom wedding gown for her and custom blue suit for her studly man, Michael—along with geodes and crystals she collected with her mother, plus, so much more. Their wedding was refined and chic, with a touch of edginess.
Details are great, but what’s even better, is love and passion. Jenna and Michael have loads of it. I loved the way they held each others faces when they kissed at the wedding ceremony—and there’s this shot of them dancing together, that is just plain sexy.
Taste of Park City was happening the day of the wedding, so Main Street was lined from top to bottom with dining tables and people. As I followed Jenna and Michael up Main Street after their couple portraits, the crowds of people cheered, clapped, raised their glasses, and smiled from ear to ear, as they watched the newly married couple walk to their reception. It was such a fun and unique little moment of the day, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Michael becomes mayor of Park City one day. He seemed to know everyone, waving to them as we passed.
They’ve got style and they’ve got swagger…take a look at Mr. and Mrs. Swan’s wedding (and all the outstanding professionals who contributed such beautiful elements, below).
