Andre and I spent a couple of months searching for a unique Utah destination, and our search eventually led us to Sundance Resort. We wanted our wedding to feel like a destination wedding, and just the words “resort wedding in Utah” evoke a feeling that extends beyond just a day. Sundance offered a breathtakingly spectacular setting. Our guests were so impressed in every respect and we will now have beautiful memories to last us a lifetime.
The inspiration for the decor and design of our wedding was “rustic glam.” We booked both our rehearsal dinner and wedding at the Redford Conference Center, an environmentally friendly building that appealed to Andre, who is studying environmental law. The space naturally provided a rustic feel, which I chose not to focus on so much as to enhance. We chose to play up an Old Hollywood glam feeling reminiscent of the 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s eras with the incorporation of ostrich feathers, lace, and pearls. More than aesthetics, however, we knew we wanted a wedding that was uniquely “us,” so we set out to incorporate meaning into every detail so nothing was included unless it spoke to our lives, families, friends, and love.
