Southern Charm in the Mountains of Utah

I hope and trust that most of you are having a lovely, peaceful holiday, be it those of you in the States observing Memorial Day, or those of you in Europe and in my part of the world- the Caribbean, celebrating Whit Monday.  Typically, many couples take advantage of these types of long holiday weekends to tie the knot, as this sweet couple did.

Their garden-inspired wedding, photographed by the wonderful Pepper Nix, was filled with soft, romantic, spring hues and classic elegance. Whimsical touches were also included, such as the Southern tradition of burying, then later digging up, a bottle of bourbon for good weather and the display of a second wedding cake made by TV’s Cake Boss which actually resembled a box of wine!

From the bride: The morning of the wedding was cold and foggy. At certain points, you couldn’t even see the mountain at all. As part of a wedding tradition, we buried a bottle of bourbon a month before the wedding for good weather. Around the time Chase and his groomsmen dug it up to drink before the wedding, the clouds parted and it became a beautiful sunny day. The bourbon works!

We did not do a first look. Both of us felt very strongly about it. Our favorite part of other people’s weddings is the moment when the bride and groom see each other, and the best part of our wedding was getting to experience that surrounded by people we love. So happy we stuck to our guns!

Our approach was for a garden vibe with a lot of greenery and loose arrangements mixed with peonies and garden roses.  Lilac and lavender touches were added to tie in the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses.

We knew that we wanted an outdoor ceremony, and you can’t beat the backdrop from that deck. Chase had taken me there the first summer we were dating and I fell in love with it. We knew that we wanted a smaller wedding, and agreed that we pictured it outdoors. Chase’s father and stepmom have a home in Park City, so that helped with the planning process tremendously.

It was everything I imagined it would be but ten times better.


  1. The wedding was one of my favorites not because of the venue or scenery, but the people!! So gracious and kind and it always makes my job easier when people are this way!!
    Check out the video highlights of the wedding!!

But just imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field.Fantastic blog!

  12. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the
    pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

    September 8, 2019

  13. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.

    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

    October 22, 2019

  14. Yes! Finally someone writes about plenty of fish dating site.

  15. I think that what you said made a ton of sense. However, what about this?
    what if you typed a catchier post title? I am not suggesting
    your information is not solid, however suppose you added
    a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Southern Charm in the Mountains of Utah – Bajan Wed is
    a little boring. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and note
    how they create article titles to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    November 12, 2019

  16. I’m curious to find out what blog system you have been utilizing?
    I’m having some minor security problems with my latest blog and I would like to find something more secure.

  18. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    November 21, 2019
