We love to hear from local couples and to get submissions directly from the bride + groom, so if you recently got married and want to see your pretty wedding on UBB please submit to us! Kimber + Joel submitted their wedding to us a while ago and we kept it tightly in our hands for several months waiting to publish it in our most recent issue and then here on the blog! It is BEAUTIFUL! This couple did things their way, something we advise all couples do for their big day but we really admire those that want something out of the box and then create it!
Kimber + Joel said “I DO” in Millcreek Canyon, a place of sentiment for them as they had spent a lot of time trail running, hiking, and recreating in this same canyon while dating. Their ceremony was very small and very private and in the woods on a hidden trail. Kimber wore a gown that she highly customized and tailored herself, she has some serious talent and she is one beautiful bride! She also did her own floral design and incorporated sentimental touches there also using oak + Russian olive in her bouquet and designs to represent the two childhood homes she grew up in! After their ceremony they headed to a small celebration at one of their favorite Italian restaurants with their favorite people at sunset. Their celebration included 80’s music only, Italian food, lots of intentional lighting, a lot of laughter, and some fun group games! The intimacy of this wedding really touches us! And our local mountains really are the perfect venue for so many UT couples! Congrats Kimber + Joel, thank you for sharing your day with us!
