Theme: Nature/Outdoor recreation/Place we met. Since we met at The Canyons, we tried to incorporate that into everything. We gave everyone a “Guide to Park City” with all of our favorite places and a map labeling the favorite spots!
Décor elements: River Rock, Tree rounds, recreation symbols. My dad built us an altar made of aspen branches and we scattered aspen leaves down the aisle. The centerpieces were just vases with river rock/water/floating flowers. My favorite part was the table cards were all different outdoor recreation symbols, and we put the symbols on the room gifts, programs, etc.
Unique details: Recreation Symbols. We’re super outdoorsy, so each table had their own symbol of something we love to do outdoors. We sat at the “Double Canoeing” table because we’ve had some hilarious canoeing adventures over the years.
MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT
Bride’s answer: Seeing Josh when I started to walk down the aisle and getting so excited, I waved to him.
Groom’s answer: Everything about the ceremony was amazing. Seeing Jenn for the first time, her waving at me, the songs, the vows. It was all hilarious, sincere, fun and emotional.
WEDDING ADVICE: Take many moments together throughout the day to be together and breathe, and just appreciate everything around you. It goes fast, so you have to make some time to stop and take it all in.
