Today’s stunning (and very intimate) wedding, held in the aspen groves of Sundance, Utah, was filled with so much love and meaning. The bride, Mekel, tells us, My wedding ring was my grandmother’s gifted by my aunt just before Chris proposed. The necklace I wore was my mom’s, a delicate gold chain with a diamond that matched perfectly with my wedding ring. I also wore a garter that my great aunt made for me and have had in my hope chest for almost 20 years.
We love all the sentimentality! And we’re pretty sure you’ll fall for the beautiful florals by Foxglove Flowers & Gifts, Mekel’s perfect Daughters of Simone dress and incredible backdrops + views captured in every single photo below by Kristen Marie Photographer…
Such a pretty shot of Mekel’s heirloom necklace.
It was not traditional, we loved the freedom of hiking through aspen grove till we found the perfect spot to exchange our vows and say our wonderful I do’s! Also my little brother and one of Chris’ best friends Andreas Adair was the one who married Chris and I. After the wedding our photographer Kristen Marie Tourtillotte took us to Tibble Fork to take pictures of just Chris and I drinking champagne together for the first time as a married couple. We dreamed of a romantic and intimate Robin Hood wedding and our dreams came true.
The Sundance scenery is way too good!
Following their ceremony, Mekel + Chris picnicked with family, and then the two of them headed to Tree Room in Sundance for an intimate celebratory meal as newlyweds!
Big congrats to the happy couple!
