When the scenery surrounding you is absolutely stunning, you can’t help but be inspired by it, and this Utah wedding is a gorgeous example. Liz and Chase knew that the mountains would do a superb job of accenting their ceremony, so they went along with that same concept and infused lots of lush greenery and glowing candlelight into their wedding decor. Pepper Nix Photography captured it all, and lucky for us, Liz is here today sharing her insight and experience…
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Having a wedding planner for the day of the wedding was a huge help. I was able to relax leading up to the wedding, and I was completely oblivious to any mishaps or drama. As far as I know, the day went perfectly!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
We wanted to work with people who knew the venue and came with good recommendations. My husband grew up vacationing in Park City, and he knew exactly where to have the wedding. I completely trusted him on the venue, but I knew that I would need to work with people I could really trust since I had never seen the wedding site.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
The scenery. We knew that the mountains were going to do most of the decorating for us during our outdoor ceremony , and we didn’t want our wedding decor to try to compete with the scenery. We wanted the whole wedding weekend to be an opportunity for all of our loved ones to take in the beauty of Utah and share a great experience in this place that we love. The reception was romantic with candles everywhere and loose greenery decorating the chandeliers. We hung lanterns filled with candles and overflowing with flowers over the dance floor in the ballroom for a rustic outdoors feel.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
We loved that we were able to spend so much quality time with our loved ones throughout the wedding. We kept the guest list small enough that we were never overwhelmed. We also kept our schedule pretty lax. I was able to have great experiences with my bridesmaids before the wedding like going for hikes, hanging out in the spa, and having a slumber party in my suite the night before the wedding. It was a great vacation with all my favorite people where I got to marry the man that I love. Couldn’t ask for more.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Take a few minutes throughout your wedding to look around and take it in. It goes by so quickly and it’s easy for it to become a blur if you don’t make yourself slow down and enjoy the moment.
Aw, I love Liz’s advice! It’s so true- it really does go by quickly, so her tip to take it in is something I would definitely recommend also!
It’s such a great idea to be inspired by the surrounding scenery of where your wedding is taking place. Are any of you also inspired by your wedding’s location?
