I met Alexis and Vincent in college years ago and we have remained friends over the years. When I first photographed their wedding, it was during their religious ceremony on the windiest day of the year. So windy we had to postpone family photos, in fact! So when more family members came in from all over the world to attend their civil ceremony and reception, we took advantage of getting the family photos they cherish now.
Alexis and Vincent’s guests truly did travel in from all over to celebrate with them. From as close as Texas and San Francisco, and as far as Germany and even Nepal. Everyone flew to Utah to celebrate, and it was so fun hearing about the happy couple from their guests who all had such unique life experiences.
This civil ceremony and reception took place in Le Jardin venue near Salt Lake City. Alexis’ priorities for the day were family, friends, food, and fashion. Her choice of monochrome white florals and minimal sleek black details allowed the venue to shine. And it did! This greenhouse wedding venue is like a tropical jungle unexpectedly set at the foot of the Wasatch mountains.
To kick off the reception, a local Salt Lake favorite Provisions served an unreal 4-course meal. The evening was full of toasts, kind words, and mingling with friends and family members that hadn’t been gathered in a long time.
Alexis and Vincent were intentional about the experience they created for their guests. They weren’t afraid to stray from wedding traditions that didn’t feel like them. Which in this case meant cutting out traditional first dances but making time for a cake cutting.
Before your wedding day, I always gather in-depth details about your agenda. I love to see different choices each couple makes to create the best wedding day possible for them and their guests. Even when that means adding unique sentimental details or cutting out traditions that you don’t love, I won’t miss a moment!
