At First Crush

June 27, 2014 // Paige + Parker

Paige Roberts and Parker Boice’s homegrown romance began with Little League football — Paige’s brother and Parker were on the same team, and her dad was the coach.Parker had a crush on Paige throughout high school, but they didn’t start dating until he returned from an LDS mission and she came home from BYU Hawaii. Their first date almost didn’t happen — Paige accidentally gave Parker the wrong address and he showed up an hour late. But his proposal came at the perfect time. After a top-down drive through Alpine Loop and a hike to Stewart Falls, Parker pulled out a book with pictures and a poem about his life from childhood to present. “He said there was room for one more picture, and then he popped the question,” Paige says. “I bawled, he laughed and I said yes!” The couple’s eight-month engagement was as smooth as their courtship. Rain threatened the outdoor nuptials at Wadley Farms, but an hour before, the clouds lifted and Paige’s crush-worthy celebration began.

GET THE PICTURE One of Paige’s first wedding planning decisions was the venue choice of Wadley Farms. “What sold me on the location was how green everything was,” she says. “And I loved being able to have my food inside and everything else outside. It was exactly what I wanted!” To add to the couple’s oh-so-lovely locale, a dreamy lounge area was created by Refined Vintage Events. Guests sipped on Italian cream sodas and relaxed on couches while watching the couple’s date video.  As for the most treasured moment? The first look. “After I was in my dress and he was in his suit, we snuck out to the back of the venue where no one would see us,” Paige says. “It was a special moment, just the two of us, before all the craziness.”
