Utah Temple Elopement
They are officially married! This was my first LDS Temple elopement! I used to live with this cute bride a few years ago, so it was an honor to serve them. It was a in a house with 8 girls and it was always a party. When I got their email a few weeks ago saying they planned to elope, I was thrilled to get to serve them. They planned a day that matched their dream wedding day. I’m so happy for them!
Hand Made Wedding Dress
Deverey and Sam were married on the day after Independence Day. They eloped to the temple with under 10 guests. They have known each other for 7 years. Their relationship culminated on a perfect July day. Her Grandmother hand-sewed her tea length dress with flutter sleeves. They were all smiles for each other and the result was that there was sweet peace through out their day. I especially loved that they were married in the later afternoon and so we took photos and then headed straight to the reception without having a long gap in the day! Genius!
Summery Park Reception
They had a summery reception at a park in the canyon. The tables were decorated with hand made flower boxes. All the guests played yard games and enjoyed themselves. Deverey’s family loves buying the top yard games every year so there were all the best ones. There wasn’t even any cell service. Their yummy dinner was catered by Pauni Island Grill. It was a hit! The guests loveddd the surprise Daddy Daughter dance performed by Deverey and her Dad to Git Up by Blanco Brown. It was the best!
Pauni Island Grill Catering
He even sang and dedicated a song to her. They crafted a simple yet detailed day and it was so special to see their family connection. Then the couple played the shoe game where they are asked “him or her” questions. They answer sitting back to back by raising either the bride or groom’s shoe. It was hilarious and the guests loved it.
Disposable Cameras at a Wedding
They had a table set up to honor the people who have passed away or who were unable to make it to the wedding. Their names were on plates set for dinner and it was the sweetest way to dedicate a spot to them. They had a basket of disposable cameras to record the night and lot of bug spray that wasn’t even needed! They exited to their get away car through a tunnel of sparklers and it was so beautiful! Congrats to the happy couple! Enjoy this LDS Temple elopement!
