Utah Bride and Groom

Autumn Affair

“As I drove the Alpine Loop one evening with Madalyn and Pamelyn of Sage Floral, we envisioned a bride and groom among the golden aspen trees and wanted to create a scene with simple, thoughtful details that were harmonious with the environment. Madalyn and Pamelyn gathered delicate and textural pieces from the surroundings as the guiding inspiration for this mountain wedding shoot.

Instead of bringing in blooms that were foreign to the setting, they foraged their ingredients from the ceremony site. Using dried grasses and ferns transitioning from summer green to golden autumn hues, they tied the bouquet with their hand-dyed ribbon. I began shooting when the light was golden and glowed through the birch leaves of the arbor, which was built to appear as if growing naturally out of the ground.

We chose a recently engaged couple as our bride and groom. Their affection and sincere excitement for their own upcoming wedding was contagious and brought this shoot to life.”
