Utah Red Cliff Ranch Wedding

Although Nikki & Michael’s wedding has a relaxed vibe, it overflowed with personal touches and was thoughtfully put together. From Nikki’s handmade wedding dress to their custom wedding blankets, every last detail was accounted for. We must say that the flower girls in denim dresses had to be one of our favorite details of the day. They look so cute!

You can see so much more of Nikki & Michael’s wedding in the full gallery here. All fabulously photographed by Alixann Loosle Photography. Read on to learn how much a wedding like theirs could cost you.

Advice from the bride:
One thing I would recommend any bride to do is to have her dress made. From designing the dress, to seeing it made from scratch, and then trying it on for an absolute perfect fit. I have never worn something so comfortable, I felt amazing all night long! And it was exactly what I wanted, nothing someone had tried on before or even seen before for that matter.

Their rustic Utah wedding was held at Red Cliff Ranch, a spectacular venue that provides a stunning western mountain backdrop for your wedding. Their traditional-style barn will welcome you into a charming saloon -perfect for cocktail parties and receptions. As you will soon see, the lighting is unbelievable and it is really a lovely spot for a wedding reception.

Dine in rustic elegance inside the raised center aisle of the barn or you may choose to dine and dance the night away in our outdoor, open-sided pavilion. No need to worry about the weather – Red Cliff Ranch has you covered.

What would you have done differently?
The one thing I would have done different was try to relax more. It was the most amazing, beautiful day. Looking back, I wish I would have been a little more laid back the day of meaning, we didn’t have to do the cake cutting at exactly 8:15pm, 8:20pm is just fine. It goes by so quickly, a lot of things flew by and I hardly even enjoyed them or noticed the little details I worked so hard on because I constantly felt like we had to keep schedule. Alix did such a great job with photos, I really lived through them on some of the highlights of the evening. I wish I would have taken a step back and said, “Ok Nikki, enjoy every moment of this” and really would have looked around a bit to take in how amazingly well everything came together.
