“I have loved you for a thousand years..” – Christina Perri
This shoot is what dreams are made of. Amanda and Jess are two very special people, not to mention ridiculously good looking, and I wanted to create something equally as special for them. I teamed up with some amazing vendors to put together the amazingness you’ll see below. Inspiration came from a few different aspects of Amanda and Jess’s love. From their wedding colors to their first dance song (which played a huge part in the style aka the tea lights), it all came together so perfectly and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
We started off at the Salt Lake City LDS Temple where Jess and Amanda stepped out as husband and wife for the first time. It’s such a special place for them and I thought it would mean a lot of we paid homage to it. We then headed to The Charcoal Loft, a super cool venue/studio located in downtown SLC. The natural light in that space is unreal and it was absolutely perfect for the minimalistic style I wanted.
I couldn’t have done any of this without the many incredible vendors I had the pleasure of collaborating with! First off, a quick shout out to Jadie from Jadie Jo Photography. She’s not only a sweetheart, but she’s insanely talented and I highly recommend her!
Amanda’s dress (which is even more stunning in person) is from Free People. I love in intricate lace details on the sleeve and the bottom of the dress. It’s a unique spin on a classic dress shape!
The incredible florals are by Angela of Ambedo Floral. She went above and beyond with this shoot. The centerpiece she created was absolutely stunning! Don’t even get me started on how amazing those garden roses smelled.
Now onto the cake — everyone loves cake! At least, I do. The naked chocolate cake was done by the very talented Gabby of Sugar House Bakes. It tasted as good as it looked, trust me.
Now, enough of my blabbering and onto the photos — enjoy!
Last but not least, Ayley and Hannah Johnson of MØØNSTRUCK PICTURES were the videographers on this shoot. They created the stunning video below and I feel they captured the day perfectly. They’re such a great time and highly recommend them.
