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).

What I like about Dustin and Sarah, is that he is stoic and she is expressive. I photographed them in Millcreek Canyon for their engagement photos. I can’t wait to show you their wedding photos from High Star Ranch. Their wedding day was so beautiful!

Baylee and Thomas are getting married next week. I photographed their engagements in Salt Lake City, recently. They are sweet and chic, and I can’t wait to be there to capture all the moments of their wedding at Red Butte Garden. Oh, and they sent me an invitation. I love it when couples do that—makes me feel special.

I call that one on the right, chin on a platter. That made them laugh. I’m funny sometimes.

The best photos are often the ones that are not directed by me. The one on the left was a moment where I turned around. There they were, looking just right. So natural and cool.

Great stances, you two!

It is truly an honor to have Kate and Dan’s Park City, Utah destination wedding featured in Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom Magazine. A big “thank you” to Donna Urban Events, Branches Floral, Culinary Crafts, the behind-the-scenes vendors, and the friends and family who helped make it all possible. It was a visual treat to photograph. Most importantly, a wedding is nothing without love between a couple. Kate and Dan share true love—you can see it in the way they look at each other. You can see more photos of their mountain ranch wedding, on my website, here.

Their wedding is also being featured on Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom’s blog, today! You can see that HERE. Whatcha’ waiting for? Go now!
