It’s Magazine Monday, friends! And today we’re sharing a closer look at the wedding of Zoi and Grant — straight from our glossy pages. We love this delightful couple, whose mutual love of music inspired an epic dance party!
I met Grant the night he came home from his LDS mission. His parents threw a welcome home party for him, and I ended up there through some mutual friends. He was a little awkward — but it was a cute awkward. We started dating and bonded over our love of music. One of my favorite dates was going to Sundance’s Bluebird Cafe concert series.
When it came time to propose, we went up Provo Canyon to our stargazing spot. Grant told me that his cousins, who are photographers, needed some models for a project so they met us there to take photos. Halfway through the “photo shoot,” Grant got down on one knee and proposed. I did not see it coming!
My mom was incredible and helped me plan my entire wedding. My sisters helped me pick out my dress and their bridesmaid dresses. I loved the intricate lace patterns in my dress. It’s not the typical lace you see on a wedding dress, which I loved.
We got married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple and had our reception in Grant’s parents’ backyard. I always wanted to have an outdoor reception, and I loved the beautiful tent we had set up. We had it lit up inside and it was magical.
The best part of the day was marrying the love of my life for time and all eternity. We have started our newlywed life together in Orem. Grant goes to University of Utah and works at Dental Intel while I work as an esthetician. Life is good.
PICTURE PERFECT Grant and Zoi’s October 4th wedding started off with their sealing at the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Lush greenery gave the florals a foraged flair. How do you elevate a classic ice cream sandwich? Make it with a macaron! Chefs Marco and Aubrey Niccoli took backyard fare to new heights. Zoi’s bouquet is proof that sometimes, more is more. Finally, Grant and Zoi’s guests put that dance floor to work! Get it.
