BABY JUST SAY YES.
It’s Magazine Monday on UtahValleyBride.com! And today we have a closer look at this European-inspired loveliness from our 2021 glossy pages. (Plus a little lyrical inspiration by Taylor Swift, obviously.)
“THIS LOVE IS DIFFICULT BUT IT’S REAL.” Nestled against the majestic mountains in Salt Lake City lie the ruins of what once was a grand museum. Its intricate Spanish architecture still stands firm showcasing gorgeous archways, statuesque plaster work and stunning rooflines. With years of vacancy, time has peeled back layers of the exterior, exposing a history, a story, and perfectly imperfect flaws. “What an ideal venue to not only display the beginnings of a couple’s journey together, but to also celebrate the flaws we each have,” says photographer Diane Sotero. “The museum spoke to us as artists, and the beginnings of a picturesque story began.”
“I LOVE YOU AND THAT’S ALL I REALLY KNOW.” The details for this European-inspired love story are light, airy and organic. Decked out in delicate greens and whites (with the perfect pop of rust on that invitation suite), the intimate celebration is both soothing and sweet. Her gown from Bridal Closet is pure lace loveliness — with just a hint of sparkle. His black tux from Perfectly Suited by Garth is crisp and classic. The flowers by Sweet Grace Floral are wildly wonderful. The cake by Grapefruit & Thyme is simplicity chic. And the film photography by Diane Sotero is almost otherworldly.
