I am SO DANG EXCITED to share this winter wedding with you! I have been obsessed with these two since they first reached out to become a Charissa Lee Bride and Groom! After their gorgeous Winter Bridal Session which you can view here, I was sure this was going to be a magical winter wedding. And that it was! When we discovered the forecast was snow, I’m sure most brides would be very worried. And I am sure Carleigh was, but she handled it with so much grace! She was a perfect Utah Winter Bride! Yes, there was snow, but it was just enough to make it magical! And was it cold? Yes! But being surrounded by the love these two have for each other, and their incredible families, made it a day I will never forget!
Carleigh was dressed in a gorgeous gown from Fantasy Bridal. And she carried a gorgeous bouquet from The Vintage Violet. They walked out of the Salt Lake Temple as husband and wife with the biggest smile on their faces. They were immediately surrounded by so many incredible friends and family. As we headed to take family pictures I was so impressed by Carleigh and Michael and their families! They never complained once and made sure these two felt nothing but happiness!
Their bridal parties were SO DANG FUN! Even though it was freezing and snowing we laughed, and just enjoyed every moment! Not to mention how amazing all of Carleigh’s bridesmaids looked! Their different skirts and tops matched and coordinated so perfectly! They all did such a great job!
After we all took a few hours to warm up we headed to their stunning reception! From the inside it was a perfect, warm sanctuary away from the snow storm happening outside. It was so incredible to see their happiness being shared with all their wonderful guests! They had the most amazing food, and the cutest hot chocolate bar! They had the sweetest Disney memorabilia, a gorgeous cake and so many well thought out details. We danced the night away and cheered them on in a snowstorm as they drove away as husband and wife! It was a wedding day I will never forget!
