What can I even say about Brooke and Steven’s love that hasn’t already been said? After their incredible engagement shoot in the mountains (see those here) and their stunning first look and bridals at the Utah Capitol Building (see here), their wedding day was the perfect cherry on top. It was such a blast to get to know this sweet couple through our photo sessions, and as happy as I am for them to start this new chapter in their life together, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit sad that I no longer get to hangout with these guys. Being a wedding photographer is such an honor and privilege as I have the opportunity to be let into these strangers lives and document the most important moments for them. I say it a lot, but I just have to say it again. I am truly thankful for all of my clients who trust me with their special days.
Brooke and Steven sealed the deal in the Salt Lake City Temple and it was a a perfect day from start to finish. From the moment I arrived and saw the swarm of family and friends wearing their wedding colors surrounding the exit doors I knew this couple was SO loved and blessed. As they exited those double doors and greeted everyone it was amazing to feel the happiness in the air around them.
These guys had 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen, plus a maid of honor and best man, bringing the wedding party total to 24 amazing humans. WOW. I loved every second of it.
The bridesmaids all wore the most beautiful wine colored dresses paired with nude heels, and the groomsmen all had matching black suits, ties, and even matching shoes. Their florist (one of my all time favorites to work with) Beehive Floral Co, did an incredible job on all the bouquet’s and boutonnieres and it all came together beautifully.
After the photos at the temple were finished we headed over to The Woods On Ninth for an outstanding celebration. There was a beautiful ring ceremony followed by dinner and some lovely toasts made by family and friends. After that the reception began, which was filled with even more food, a photo booth, and lots of dancing. The entire day was a party from start to finish and before I knew it they were running through a tunnel of bubbles to their getaway car and driving off into the night.
I’m so happy for Brooke and Steven as they start their journey as husband and wife. And now, without further adieu, I present to you Mr. & Mrs. Haglund!
And a big thanks to my amazing second shooter Raegan Christensen for assisting me all day!
