I photographed McCall and Aaron’s wedding at the St. George LDS Temple in early March a few years ago. It was such a beautiful wedding! I’ve been updating my blog lately and realized that I hadn’t shared this one with you yet so here you go! I loved the classic and modern feel of their wedding day. I absolutely loved McCall’s sleek and modern two-piece wedding dress by Illume Gowns. She was such a gorgeous bride! The bride and groom were married in the LDS Temple and held their reception luncheon at the Cliffside Restaurant overlooking downtown St. George. It was a sweet and intimate wedding celebration. They chose just to have an intimate gathering with wedding toasts so they could just relax and visit with their family and friends. I was thrilled that we were able to get the last of the spring blooms at the temple for their portraits as well.
I was pretty excited to get to photograph a wedding at the beautiful Holmstead Ranch in the mountains of Southern Utah. It was a beautiful venue for a fall wedding! The venue has cabins all surrounding a beautiful little lake, so the wedding party stayed there for the weekend. Kelcie and Ryan were an awesome couple to work with. Joey and I both photographed their wedding together, which always results in some of my favorite work! It was important to the bride and groom that they have photos of each of them getting ready with their friends, so Joey went with the groom and I went with the bride. Kelcie also told me during our consults that it was really important to them to capture the moment when they first see each other. They opted out of the first look because they wanted that special moment as Kelcie walked down the aisle. I’m so glad they hired a second photographer because the look on Ryan’s face is priceless and so sweet! After the ceremony we hopped in some golf carts and took photos in a lovely alfalfa field and then they joined the wedding guests for an awesome dance party! Overall, this wedding was a dream to photograph. Thanks for having us, friends! I will always dream about that amazing lemon bundt cake.
