Lexi and Jake are finally husband and wife!
It was the most beautiful summer day for a country wedding in the little town of Bothwell, Utah. Lexi and Jake planned the most beautiful day in a few short weeks so that Lexi's grandmother who is sick could be there. There was such a special bond that was so evident between Lexi and her grandma, and I'm glad she was able to get pictures with her on this special day.
The ceremony, complete with a gorgeous barn door backdrop, was so sweet and I am so excited that these two are married! Their bridals were fun, but their wedding was a blast! Amazing venue and amazing family and friends. After the ceremony and family photos came one of my favorite parts of the day: photographing the details. The cake, the bouquets, the decor, everything was just so beautiful and perfect. The cake was especially one of my favorites. A gorgeous cut out topper on a white cake with flowers and a special cutting knife with a ribbon that says "Today I marry the bravest". Jake is a firefighter and I'm so glad they paid tribute to the wonderful service that he provides for our community. My other favorite of the details was the bouquets. They were stunning!! And made by Jake's ever so talented sister-in-law Natalie. I loved the red and pink color scheme and the little pink buds were so unique and pretty!
We also had time for another mini bridal session and as special request from the bride's mom, we took some photos on a teeter-totter. Adorable! Especially with the wind catching her train and veil. We also took some of my favorite portraits in front of the beautiful barn wood! Lexi and Jake are just so in love and it was an honor to photograph them.
My all time favorite part of wedding days are the dances. I love the daddy daughter dances, and usually tear up a bit, but it's the first dance that gets me. It always reminds me of dancing with my husband for the first time as husband and wife, and I just can't help but reminisce and be so entirely happy for the new couple.
Dancing, cake cutting, garter and bouquet tossing all leads up to the exit, and Lexi and Jake decided on a sparkler exit, and I just love them! I hope they never go out of style!
Congrats Lexi and Jake! I'm so glad you are finally Mr. and Mrs. and hope you have the best married life ever!!
