Minji and Paul’s Millcreek Canyon Wedding at Log Havenwedding

It was a rainy day when Minji and Paul were married at Log Haven in Millcreek Canyon. Days like this will forever be my favorite, when the rain amplifies the lush green trees around us and the smell of damp pine is in the air. The canyon was pretty peaceful and quiet, leaving these two alone to celebrate and be close with loved ones.

They chose to have a late evening wedding followed by dinner and late night dancing. One of my favorite things about them though is how they began the evening with a first look alone together near the lake. The fact that they chose to begin together rather than spend hours on end apart says so much about them and their relationship. They were able to take their time to emotionally connect before jumping into the festivities which set such a lovely tone for the ceremony and rest of the evening. We spent a few moments here before joining loved ones across the road for the ceremony. Loved ones gave readings, family married them, and the evening was easygoing and everything a part should be.

Sidney and Matt’s Fall Wedding at Millcreek Inn, Utahwedding

We were driving through Big Cottonwood Canyon for Sidney and Matt’s first look when rain turned to snow and we were suddenly engulfed in thick fluffy flakes. The storm calmed just long enough for them to see one another before picking right back up forcing us into my favorite grove of pines. They partially planned their wedding for October in hopes of getting some weather and it definitely delivered. I’m so happy they set aside time that morning to experience the start of their day together in weather most cross their fingers to avoid.

After some time in the mountains we all made our way to the neighboring canyon for their wedding at celebration at Millcreek Inn. Sidney’s father walked her down the aisle to live music, her sister kept an eye on her train and brother brought up the rings. They had an intimate gathering of close loved ones and what stood out was how important it was to center their celebration around family. More and more we are seeing couples keep things smaller with a unique feeling of intimacy. After their ceremony they had a relaxing dinner and a small dance party to wrap the night.

Sidney and Matt, we truly can’t thank you enough for having us along especially for every beautiful moment of the day. Thank you for the trust you gave in our image style, for allowing us to be so hands on and for rolling with every bit of weather and sticking to your plan anyway. Yours is one we’ll always remember.
