Summer Greenhouse Wedding at Shade Home & Garden || Orem, Utah

From an engagement session on a rooftop to lakeside portraits with a sick bride and the groom falling down the mountain, I knew this wedding day would be nothing if not entertaining!

McKenna & Travis met through a mutual friend who had invited both of them to go hiking in Zion’s National Park over Labor Day weekend. They just hit it off right away and have been together ever since! McKenna told me, ”I guess you could say it was love at first sight (haha), but he is the best!” As I was getting to know the couple, I found out he is from Meridian, Idaho where a very close friend of mine grew up. I knew the odds were small, but I asked Travis if he knew my friend, Ed. Sure enough, they were best friends in high school! I got to hear all of the dirty secrets of high school Ed.

Travis will begin medical school in the fall of 2019 at Texas Tech. They will be staying in Logan, Utah until then to allow McKenna to finish her degree at Utah State and serve as the college senator there. I guess you could say they are both high achievers!

Their August wedding day began with the most beautiful morning at the Salt Lake Temple! The clouds came out just as McKenna & Travis were exiting the temple. Clouds are THE best! Their reception was held at my new favorite venue! Shade Home and Garden is a nursery and greenhouse that also has a space for hosting events. Beautifully lit and full of natural and industrial decor, the venue was just stunning from the moment I walked in! McKenna & Travis created a s’mores bar that was a huge hit with their guests and a soda bar with custom drinks named after the couple.

After dancing and a sparkler exit, McKenna & Travis were off to enjoy their honeymoon in Hawaii! Congratulations to the happy couple!
