Winter Wedding

Lundy + Anders | Utah Greenery Wedding

Lundy Utah Winter Bridals

Greenery. It's the thing. It's been on trend for about a year now and seems to be hitting it's peak this year! And oh do we love it! There is so much goodness and depth and texture and shape that comes with greenery. It's unique in it's own way and brings out both a classic style as well as a more modern, boho style. 

Lundy was one of the most classic brides we have ever met! She wanted clean, textural, simple, and timeless. And she wanted green. So off we went! Her bouquet doesn't actually have ANY flower blooms in it! Do you see that? It's all greenery, textural flowers, and what we call filler flowers...meaning they don't have big blooms on them. 

What I love about her bouquet is the depth and range of texture in it! So I know you're asking yourself, what? No flowers? But do you really think they're necessary? Give us some fern, a bit of eucalyptus, acacia, holly, pitt, snow on the mountain, desert yearning, privet, veronica, olive, bay leaf, and scabiosa pods and we are more than happy! There is so much to look at that we don't even miss the focal blooms!!!

Besides the fact that Lundy's eyes are the impeccable match to the green. Take a look! She has THE most gorgeous eyes! 

We're all about that bout too! It's textural, it's simple, it's manly and stately. It's classic. But not boring. It's what our grooms are asking for! None of the focals and all of the texture!

And finally, ribbon. Gold velvet ribbon. Classic.

Kristine + Luke Valentine's Day Romance in Salt Lake City

Valentines Day Love with The Potted Pansy

Love is in the Air! It's that month when we celebrate love, in all it's forms, but of course romantic love is at the top of that list. This adorable couple is the epitome and cute and fun and romantic and well, again, adorable. So making a little bouquet for them was a treat. What was even more of a treat? The SNOW!!!

We typically have snow in Utah beginning with the first flakes falling around Halloween (yes, that early) and we continue to shovel sometimes through March. I remember years we have had white flurries the first weeks of June even! Utah weather is so unpredictable. But this year has taken the cake. This year has been beyond unpredictable. This year we had snow once. Once. 
And guess what, this couple just happened to choose that one day for pictures! Oh how happy I was!!! If you look closely you can see a few white flurries in Kristine's hair and in the foreground in front of her. Look closely! I promise they are there!

So on this Valentine's Day, we will pretend there is snow, cuddle up in front of the fire even if it isn't that cold, and enjoy these romantic black, red, pink and WHITE images!

Real Couple. Real Love.

All the way from hong kong

Real Couple. Real Love.

I know so many of you think these are all staged, styled shoots. But I'm here to tell you that so many of the images I post are of REAL couples sharing their REAL love. These two came all the way from Hong Kong to capture their love in the beautiful scenery that Utah has to offer. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place with a myriad of natural offerings! From the Salt Flats to the snowy pined mountains. From Arches and Zion Natural Parks to Antelope Island. 

And besides that, can we talk about the red? I don't often make a red bouquet, but man I love the way this turned out! With Lynn's stunning red gown, this screams romantic! And I love it!
