Baylee Nielsen married her sweetheart Paul Peterson in the Provo City Center Temple one year ago this week! The beautiful couple celebrated with family, friends, gorgeous decor, and a downright delightful dance party at Quiet Meadow Farms in Mapleton.
Before they met, it was a series of mishaps and misunderstandings worthy of a romantic comedy … Broken dates! Broken down cars! Texts gone wrong! Baylee even planned to “act like a brat” and get out of the blind date, but that plan quickly failed when she finally, truly saw Paul for the first time.

Baylee’s dress from Pritchett Bridal was chic, elegant and fun. (Those delicate lace cap sleeves just slay us.) The photography by Ashley of Zibetti Photo + Film was marry and magical. And the exited their reception amidst a bounty of dearly-beloved balloons.
“Moral of the story, blind dates work!” Baylee says. “Tell your friends.”
