We asked Kate Benson, a sensational Little Black Book photographer based in Utah if we could feature Britney and Michael’s wedding way back when we did a feature on wedding gowns. We noticed that many of her wedding photos were with Mormon couples {the Salt Lake City Temple in the background} and that the brides had gorgeous gowns with sleeves. We even got a few comments on how refreshing it was to see this ‘trend’. Seems to be that it’s not so much a trend, as probably, a temple requirement. (We’d be happy to know more from any of our readers!)  Take a look back {here} if you missed that feature.

Now, a bit from Kate … “Mike and Britney were so lovely on their wedding day despite having their hands nearly freeze off in the wind, rain and snow. You could never tell from these pics how cold it actually was… such troopers. Thanks guys, for doing that “just one more” thing every time I asked!”

More from Kate … “Wow what a wedding! I love, love, love seeing how creative brides can get in picking out all their wedding goodies.  Britney was brilliant in her choosings, right down to the food that was catered. Her wedding was bright, colorful, and festive… just what is needed in the muddiness of March. My FAVORITE thing she chose was a Mariachi band. Seriously? I loved these guys! They were AMAZING and sooooo incredibly professional (smiles on their faces the whole time!).”

Aren’t the ribbons just great! Very simple touches can do so much to coordinate the whole affair!
