Utah Bride and Groom

Drama-Packed Bridals at Spiral Jetty

If drama, epic landscapes and perfect outfits are all in your “dream wedding” category, get your Pinning fingers ready, because this shoot is simply dripping with each element. 
Real couple (and our newest #couplegoals forever) Parker and Courtney met on their missions in Copenhagen, where they learned how much they have in common. From their family background to their interests, the pair knew it was love at first sight. Courtney told photographer Kristi Price that she wanted something epic for her bridal shoot, Kristi immediately knew to take her to the Spiral Jetty. 
Robert Smithson’s Earthwork art installation on the Great Salt Lake has been there for over 30 years, but we have never seen it captured quite this magnificently. And this couple’s stunning faces certainly add to the allure. 
We are loving Courtney’s fiery updo, and how the delicate beading on her gown captures every sparkle of light across this epic landscape. Parker’s suit and tie perfectly match the bridal bouquet, which in turn highlights the blue hued backdrop of Utah.
Scroll on through this epic natural gallery stroll for more bridal inspiration and true love!

    Oh my… I really have no idea what word to use here… Oh my goodness doesn’t do these pics justice, although pure goodness is what they are. I am stunned. I have the incredible luck of calling the photographer, Kristi, my niece. She has talent, poise and a form of grace that is obvious and is reflected in her art. Congrats to the lovely couple. They simply couldnt have chosen a better photographer. Thanks to Kristi Elise, their special day is memorialized in this beautiful, creative and artistic way. Thank you for sharing this all with the general public as well as those contemplating marriage. Anyone interested in capturing those (or any other) special moments on film could not choose someone with a better eye or more panache. Not that I’ve seen you do anything otherwise Kristi, but this time you nailed it! BEAUTIFUL!
