I wanted to share our beautiful wedding day with you. It was such a special day that I will cherish forever. All the details and love story, were published on Martha Stewart weddings! What a dream! http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/601784/rustic-mountain-wedding-utah-ashley-sawtelle#601786
The night before our wedding we held a rehearsal dinner up at Stone Hill Lodge Estate were we had housed all our guests for the weekend. Preston’s family put on a beautiful dinner catered by Cubbys (one of our fav places to eat at) We had only our bridal party and close family and friends attend. Before everyone went on their ways to get rested before the big day, we all gathered together in the family room at the estate, our loved ones were all around us, they shared their favorite memories of us, their advice, there love, it was such a sweet moment. Half the room was in tears. We will never forget how blessed we are to have so many amazing people cheering us on in this next big adventure in our lives.
My amazing best friend Alex painted the artwork for my invites for me, they were to die for! Kelle McCarter handled the calligraphy. The collaboration resulted in one-of-a-kind stationery pieces. My mother and owner of L’Arrangement Floral created my textured bridal bouquet using olive branches, bay leaves pieris, king protea, peonies, ranunculus, and anemones. I was so special to have my mom design the all the flowers for my wedding! They were STUNNING!
Preston and I were married on May 12th, 2016 in the LDS Payson Temple. It was perfect. Temples are sacred structures in our faith, as they represent a holy place of worship for us to commune with God, to be in this gorgeous ceremony room together, with those that are special to us, was the most meaningful part of our day. Flour and Flourish created our amazing cakes, which featured double chocolate, peanut butter chocolate, and passion fruit coconut flavors. Adorning each cake were vintage crowns, a king protea, and red peonies. French macarons were also on offer in white compotes.
Preston’s grandpa restored and painted his blue truck, he was so kind to let us use it for our special day, and drive off from our wedding. Hanging from the back was a “Just Married” sign created by my mother. Our guests tossed dried lavender and held sparklers as we left the reception! It was magical.
