Danielle and Chris had a fabulous destination wedding in Park City Utah this past weekend, and I was so honored to be asked to photograph it! I have been photographing the bride since she was very little, so this was a special treat for me!
All of the wedding activities took place at the Grand Summit Resort in Park City, Utah. The bridal party all got ready at the hotel at the base of the mountain, then took the chairlift up to a 9,000 foot elevation for a mountaintop wedding ceremony and reception. I was really stunned by the natural beauty of the location–I have photographed weddings on mountains, but never a desert mountain. There was a wide variety of natural backdrops for great photos.
So without further ado, here are some of my favorite wedding photos from this stunning destination wedding:
I wanted to make sure to use the reflection in the glass doon to help convey a sense of place. The mountains are beautiful.
These earrings have special sentimental value because they were the bride’s grandmother’s.
How cute are these?
Let’s not forget the Groom.
Chris getting dressed.
I love how relaxed he looks.
When your mom sees you dressed in your bridal gown for the first time on the wedding day, it is very special.
This is adorable of Danielle’s sisters getting ready.
I love the lighting and the textures in this image.
I love this image of Danielle’s first look with her dad because her step dad is in the background looking super happy too.
Is that a tear?
First Look–I just think it is so special that Danielle’s sisters took her to meet Chris.
Spectacular views in every direction.
The bouquet was perfect for this wedding!
I knew when I went for a site visit the day before that I would want to use this location–I love the rock formations. I also knew I would need to block light to get the image I wanted!
How we got the shot!
Chris’s mom did all the wedding decor and it was perfect!
Again, the views! So spectacular!
The light was perfect to backlight this gorgeous lace train! And I adore the way Rachel is looking at her big sister!
We had some fun on a dirt road by the venue. So pretty.
This was beautifully presented.
The lights on the deck were too good to not do some photos with.
The Father Daughter Dance was beautiful.
Sunset photo? Yes, please!
I have to say, I really kind of loved photographing at this resort–the scenery was spectacular!
