Is that not the most incredible photograph you've ever seen? Looks 100% fake, but it's not. I know, right? Fucking fantastic! Heather and Ethen are standing on a section of the Bonneville Salt Flats that was completely covered in water making for such a beautiful pic, that it appears as though they were artificially placed! Totally looks like they are walking on water! WOW!
Anyway... I can't get enough of this wedding. While the salt flats are really cool, so are the rest of the deets and the peeps. Heather is staggeringly beautiful (like STAG GER ING LY) and if Ethen looks familiar to you, there's good reason... MTV's Nitro Circus ring any bells? Yeah, dude's pretty awesome! Aside from the beauty and the talent, there is a cake smash so messy that it's almost shocking, and some serious dancing! Bridey, this is a FUN wedding... Take some notes and enjoy!
Right. Stunning. And, doing her own hair!I totally need to buy that lipstick!Get the feeling that Ethen doesn't wear too many ties?How amazing is that?Favorite.Photograph.Ever.I love how he's checking her out!The front wheel isn't on the ground. Just sayin'.Walking on water??
Look how beautiful!!! Seriously, could ya' bust? Totally reminds me of my fantasy bachelorette party post!! Now, imagine getting married on a mountain top, and then partying the night away at this beautiful venue. Right? Can I get a, "fuck yeah"?!! Seriously, talk about a memorable evening (or weekend!)! And, know what I absolutely love about Jessi (and Nick)? This girl had the balls to get married outside (as in host the ceremony outside!!) in March! WOW! That's pretty impressive and unique! Although, when you see all the incredible deets, bridey, you won't be too surprised.
Pepper, with Pepper Nix Photography, (my new FAVE and FAB photographer!) asked the bride quite a few questions about her wedding plans, overall experience, etc. My favorite? Scroll down and see Jessi's advice for future brides.... Clearly, Jessi was a Bitchless Bride! Enjoy!
Hello GORGEOUS canary diamond... WOW!!!I love this photograph...OBSESSED with the shoes and the gold toes!Why a Mountain Wedding? Nick and I love to ski. It is something we have been doing since we were very young. Additionally, when we first started dating it was something we did together several times a week. We also love, love, love the mountains, fresh air, and fantastic perspective their majesty brings!
Lovin' the ass grab!I love the wedding dress and the snow boots!I had all my bridesmaids pick their own dresses. I told them blue, above the knee, and no sleeves. They all picked out dresses that were incredibly flattering and somehow it worked out. Additionally they all wore printed black tights. I bought them coats and boots to keep them warm. One of my bridesmaids, Christina, made muffs (instead of flowers) and we all had a fantastic time making crass poses with them. (HA! Obviously, BB LOVES this!)
So so so cute! What brand new elements did you bring to the day? Getting married outside in the snow. The planner was a bit apprehensive, but I stuck to my guns and am glad I did.Best pic ever!! Did you follow that tradition and if so, what did you use? Yes, yes, yes...Old was my mothers ring in my bouquet, new was my dress, borrowed was ring from my aunt Ginny that she wore on her wedding day, and blue was my shoes.
Any advice you have for future brides? Take a deep breath when you are up front and look at everyone who is supporting you. Two, don't get so caught up in the details that you forget what you are doing, joining two people together. Three, surround yourself with people you love...don't be obligated to invite people or put people in your bridal party who you don't want there. Four, hire someone to do things the day of...it was the best decision we made. Five, make a weekend of it. We did a pub crawl on Friday night and it was so fun. We had many activities and stayed together, so it felt like a vacation!
Look at this room, bridey! OMG! So warm and beautiful without being overdone!Such a romantic couple!What did you serve? A sit-down plated dinner of our signature pistachio nut encrusted Utah trout with local wild mushroom and truffle mashed potatoes, grilled filet mignon and a vegan friendly grilled polenta cake napoleon with a smoked tomato puree. We wanted something less traditional, so we opted for a brown cake with swirls. Honestly, Nick and I were hanging out with my aunt and she asked us a couple questions about what we liked and what we absolutely didn't want. In the end we told he she had complete creative control and the cake was deish! So many people came up to us and told us it was the best cake they had ever had, maybe it was because there was no fondant!
Brideys, try not be jelly when I tell you how Adam proposed to Bernida... Okay? Ready? Adam proposed to Bernida after throwing her OUT OF A PLANE (Yup! You read that right!). And... It was her first time skydiving! Can you imagine?! Adam had a big 10' x 60' sign (one that would be dragged behind a plane) rolled out in the grassy landing field that said, "WILL YOU MARRY ME?". The best part? He could hear her screaming "Yes!" from about 1,500 ft in the air. Seriously, that guy puts all of our grooms to shame! Right?
Anyway, as you scroll down, you'll realize two things... One, I had a hard time editing Bernida and Adam's wedding because I loved all of the photographs so much, and two, the B+G are seriously in love. Like, mushy, romantic, and borderline I'm gonna be sick kind of love... And it's fucking great! Their mushy love for each other is apparent in pretty much every.single.photograph. Totally, how it should be, bridey!!! So, take some notes, and enjoy the eye candy!
Those pearls belonged to Bernida's grandmother. And what you can't see when you look down is that Adam has his grandfather's pocket knife in his jacket pocket. I love the sentiment. It seriously looks fake. Doesn't it? How could anything be that beautiful??Bernida and Adam got married on Crested Butte Mountain overlooking the Paradise Divide Mountain Range. Great shot!Gimme some!! Such a fun photograph!HAHA! Look at the faces on the groomsmen and bridesmaids! LOVE IT!A MAZ ING. The cake is stunning, and the shot of the cake is magnificent!!
