Horseshoe Bend Sunset Bridals
Kelly and Tiffany have a flare for "EPIC" so I was not surprised when they agreed to my idea of doing a sunset bridal shoot on the cliffs of Horseshoe Bend! Barefoot and windblown, this was both dreamy and epic in every way! With a long hike in, we were running out of sunlight quick but somehow we were able to pull it off, probably because they both have to be some of the most photogenic people i've ever worked with!! Of course, this was just part 1 of the many MANY more epic moments to come!
Sunrise Ceremony at Lone Rock Beach
Kelly and Tiffany originally planned on a sunset wedding on Lone Rock Beach, however after being there a few days playing and celebrating prior to their big day, they saw how the wind would typically pick up in the evening, and for fear of it ruining everything, they made a last minute switch on their wedding eve's night to do the ceremony the next morning at 6:30 am! With a 10 pm call to their bishop and a 4:30 am wake up call to the entire wedding party to get all the details put together (Which I especially LOVED seeing the groom and his handsaw at the crack of dawn creating the gorgeous birch arbor he would soon wed his bride under!), it was an "all hands on deck" kind of morning. And somehow they were able to pull it off for truly the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremony I have ever been apart of. Tearful vows said as the waves lapped upon the shore, Mixing sands as they officially blended their family, and promises made to not just each other but to their kids who surrounded them. It was a tearful celebration with smiles all around!
The After Party
Immediately following the ceremony, we loaded up in a couple Mastercrafts and found ourselves in a private cove. The perfect place for a champagne toast! So many kind words shared among close family and friends. Then, of course, Cliff jumping follwed! Even the bride and groom took a hand in hand jump in together. Other moments captured during this two day event was sunrise yoga led by Tiffany (bride) and the wedding dinner on the Eve of their wedding day at The Point restaurant in Antelope Point.
Reception - Sunset dinner and Dancing
Following the Wedding day's events - the party made it back to shore for a Mexican FEAST at sunset - Then the party really began with cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss, and of course lots and lots of DANCING on a DIY wood plank dance floor complete with string lights and a boombox for the most impressive beach dance party ever! See what I mean, Kelly and Tiffany have a flare for EPIC!
