Salt Lake City, Utah Wedding by Jonathan Canlas
January 31, 2011

Happy Monday lovelies! Our first wedding is so bright and happy, it is sure to pull you out of that early morning fog – no coffee needed. And we are pretty positive the bridesmaids' attire is some of the most adorable we've seen to date. Seriously, how can you top those cute yellow cardigans? Jonathan Canlas worked his usual magic with the camera and whipped up some gorgeous imagery straight from Salt Lake City and there's even more to fawn over in the gallery if you so choose.

I felt so lucky on our wedding day because our families meshed so well. Between the two families, we had close to 50 grand kids! Can you believe it? There were kids everywhere, but that's what made the event so fun. Part of what made our wedding special, is that my mom and Blake's mom were best friends in college. They were even each others bridesmaids! Our moms were in heaven and it made the whole wedding feel so personal!

I always wanted an outdoor wedding, and lucky for us, the weather turned out to be perfect. We had delicious food, lights, an ice cream bar (I like ice cream better than cake), and a great band who played jazz and Frank Sinatra (because I think that style of music is so romantic)! Kids were dancing everywhere! As we left our reception all we could think about is how loved we felt. It was so fun to have all the people we cared most about all in the same place at the same time to celebrate with us!
