May 1, 2016 // McCall + Tanner

McCall Modersitzki and Tanner Weekes’ dearly beloved tale began at someone else’s happily ever after. She was a bridesmaid. He was a groomsman. She thought he was darling. He thought she was cute. “He asked me out, but then I had to tell him I was only 17!” McCall says. “So he said, ‘Hopefully I’ll see you at BYU next year!’” And see each other they did. The pair went out a year later, and over the next five years they dated, wakeboarded and fell in love. After a proposal at Utah Lake (thus all the wakeboarding), the wedding planning began. “We originally wanted to elope, but being the oldest my mom really wanted to do the whole wedding thing — so I did it for her,” McCall says. “She and my wedding planner planned most of my wedding, and I let their creativity do most of the work. When I arrived at my reception, I was completely blown away. It was beautiful.” Among the beauty? Impeccable florals, divine vines, fabulous shades (tangerine orange, salmon pink, cream and succulent green), a delicious cake, festive favors, the perfect photographer, and the most supportive family and friends. “I know I originally didn’t even want a reception, but it was really special seeing everyone come out to support us,” McCall says. “And earlier that day, when we exited the LDS temple, all of our family and friends were there cheering and clapping for us. It was a moment I’ll never forget.”

MERRY MATRIMONY This Alpine girl married her Provo boy — and it was all captured by McKenzie Deakins. “We wanted the natural moments, and McKenzie was everything I wanted! She is also hilarious, so all the laughing pictures are real.”

GET THE PICTURE With flowers being a top priority, McCall’s theme naturally turned into a garden wedding. And with her love of succulents and the indoor-outdoor combination of Riverside Country Club, everything fell into place. On the day of the wedding, that perfection continued. “We both are so easy-going that nothing really went ‘wrong,’” McCall says. “The only thing is we were not expecting so many ‘plus-ones’ or ‘plus-fives,’ so we did not have enough food to feed everyone. Welcome to a Mormon wedding!”
