Natural and Simple Wedding in Utah

This natural and simple wedding in Utah turned their Friday the 13th wedding date into one of their luckiest days yet! It helps to keep things simple, and this no frills wedding did just that. Jeffery and Brittan chose a very low key and understated wedding. From their rustic getaway reception in the hills of Provo, UT, to the elegantly simple centerpieces on all of their tables, you are sure to love the quiet beauty of this western wedding reception.

From Meredith Carlson Photography:
Bright, colorful flowers and foliage were used everywhere, from table decor, to bouquets, to hair pieces. A floral theme was also incorporated into their custom monogram which graced their announcement, favor boxes, and sign. The couple had their announcements printed on thin wood to keep with their rustic theme.

Brittan and Jeffery were married in the LDS Salt Lake Temple and held their reception at the beautiful Sundance Resort. Brittan’s lovely simple dress was a concept she came up with. She found the lace bodice at The Children’s Hour boutique SLC, Utah, then commissioned seamstress Janet Gleave to attach fabric ordered from NYC to create her dress.

After their temple wedding in Salt Lake City, Jeffery and Brittan moved their guest up to Sundance Resort in Provo, UT where they could enjoy the unique mountain destination. Sundance Resort also provides custom catering from an award-winning chef, plenty of activities to keep guests busy, a spa to get you and your guest relaxed and rejuvenated; and a variety of onsite lodging choices for family and friends attending your wedding and wedding reception.

While Jeffrey and Brittan didn’t have official bridesmaids or groomsmen, Brittan wanted to include all of her little cousins, thus making them all her flower girls. Jeffrey’s niece and Brittan’s youngest sister were bridesmaidens, and Jeffrey’s nephew was ring bearer. Each little bridesmaid received a little silver heart necklace.

  3. […] Brittan + Jeff’s Friday the 13th wedding turned out to be the luckiest day yet! They had a relaxed, rustic, simple vibe in a bright fall palette at Sundance Resort. We used a lush variety of flowers with succulents as the basis of our designs. Custom fern wreaths adorned the walls and set the backdrop for their cake which was created by Layers Cake. Flower girls wore flower hair clips, large burlap vase arrangements flanked the entry as guests entered the Rehearsal Hall,  simple bottle centerpieces lined the farmhouse tables {provided by Alpine Event Rental} where guests dined, and many beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres, and flower bracelets were designed for their stunning wedding party.  Their beautiful wood announcements:  printed by Cards of Wood with the monogram + design by Linsey Laidlaw. Brittan’s lovely dress was a design she came up with. She found the lace bodice, and commissioned a seamstress to attach  fabric ordered from NYC. The artist behind these stunning images: Meredith Carlson {she has us swooning over her work}.
