It’s Magazine Monday, friends! Here’s a closer look at the gorgeous and glittery nuptials of Stephanie and Brady from our glossy pages.
Stephanie + Brady //June 10, 2016
Stephanie Petersen and Brady Arnold were both communications majors at Southern Utah University. The pair admired one another from afar for almost a year before they started dating. When they finally did connect, it was a “when you know, you know” situation.
“Brady is honestly the best person I have ever met in almost every way!” Stephanie says. “He is genuine, selfless, hardworking and attractive, I might add.”
After four years of dating, Brady proposed on the couple’s birthday weekend — his birthday is Aug. 21 and hers is Aug. 23. Brady chose Aug. 22 to pop the question in Park City with dinner, roses, candles, a roaring fireplace — the works.
Once it was time to start planning, Stephanie, who is from South Jordan, chose the beautiful This is The Place Heritage Park as their venue. The ceremony was performed outside underneath a gorgeous wooden arch built by Brady and Stephanie’s dad. An abundance of lush blooms gave the arch a “wedding day” finishing touch.
They brought the party inside where they danced the night away, including a first dance to “Then” by Brad Paisley. The couple’s bubbly exit was followed by a honeymoon in Mexico.
GET THE PICTURE Stephanie found her dream dress at Fantasy Bridal, and the hair piece she wore was “something borrowed” from one of her bridesmaids. The wooden signage used at the reception fit perfectly with the exposed wooden beams at the venue. And one of Stephanie’s favorite décor touches, the hand-painted globe, now sits on her bedroom dresser and reminds her of her big day every day. And can we talk about Brady’s nephew Brigz, the handsome little heartbreaker with the “Here Comes The Bride” sign? It doesn’t get cuter. Stephanie loved the way her photographer, Alyssia Baird, captured candid moments and real emotions. And it helped that their June wedding day was just overcast enough to provide perfect photo light.
