Romantic Winter Wedding at Snowbasin Resort

February 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I think my secret may be out, I love shooting weddings at Snowbasin!  It is so fun to watch guests experience the magic of the mountains.  I also appreciate pets being able to participate in the wedding.  Buckwheat, the dog in this wedding, beat all odds and out lived his health problems so he could participate in the wedding.  He made sure it was clear that he loved her first.

Glenn and Jenna, both Navy Lieutenants and Physicians, didn't even flinch when I suggested going to the wilderness in a snow storm at night to photograph their formal session.  There are photos from this session that have already made my personal all time favorite list.

Jenna, How did you and Glenn meet?  We met in September of 2011 in Denver, CO during a medical school interview. While crammed into a small room for hours, we sat next to each other and talked non stop. At the end of the day, Glenn summoned up the courage asked for my number. I went back to Idaho and Glenn headed back to San Diego. We kept talking over the phone and started our relationship two months later when we visited Park City, UT

How did he propose? Glenn woke me up at 3:00 in the morning. He had already been awake to put the cutest bowtie on our dog, Buckwheat, and had spread dozens of roses throughout our house. The three of us then went to watch the sunrise at Kailua Beach on the east side of Oahu. We had the whole beach to ourselves, and Glenn asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I said yes! It was a perfect proposal.

How did you make the day your own? Many of our guests had never been to Utah, or to a winter wedding, so we wanted to give them an experience they would never forget. They got to enjoy the winter wonderland we've always loved by taking a gondola ride up to our ceremony at about 9,000 feet in elevation. We also chose to do a first look. The setting on the edge of the mountain, with the rest of the world below us made that moment special and unforgettable.
