Utah Bride and Groom

Real Wedding: Marissa + Tory

“Tory and I met through my brother and  mutual friends, it wasn’t long before we fell in love. He proposed to me by taking me into the mountains to what I thought was a campsite bonfire with our friends, but instead I happened upon a path of roses and lanterns leading across a river bridge.

At our wedding reception we had small stars sprinkled on the tables with lanterns surrounded by flowers. Our colors were ivory, sangria, lavender and navy, colors that my husband and I picked together. And I love  sparkles, in the flowers, the shoes, the dress and the rings.  I made my wedding flowers myself and my mom made my veil, so they were both very sentimental to me. There were so many special moments, I loved stepping out of the Salt Lake City Temple to the cheers and excitement of all our friends and family. My bridesmaids laughing with me and helping me get ready, and of course sharing smiles and kisses on a gorgeous day with my wonderful husband.
