Utah Bride and Groom

Desert Oasis

A struggle that every Utah florist knows all too well is the battle to keep bridal bouquets from wilting in the hot and arid climate. For this Zion shoot, Bloomers Flowers & Decor skirted the issue by keeping things minimal (but still gorgeous!). This stunning bride totes a dream-catcher inspired, macrame-dripping ring of cherry-branch florals in lieu of a traditional bouquet, because why should the weather limit any celebration of Utah’s natural beauty?

Photographer Julie Crawford, of Magnolia & Ember Photography, says that Utah is one of the most incredible places she’s ever been, and wanted to keep all elements of this shoot earthy to match the landscape.

The groom’s wood ring has an inlay of dinosaur bone that was dug up in Utah, a perfect homage to our state, and to love. As Watsky would say, “She didn’t give me butterflies, she gave me pterodactyl!”

The accessories, plus her delicate lace gown, are giving us all the bohemian vibes we needed today.
