From the bride, Nicki: Ty and I both adore the mountains in the fall, so we couldn’t think of a more ideal setting for our wedding than mid October at the Sundance Resort in Utah. We actually had our first kiss on a night we went on a date at Sundance, and that is also where Ty proposed, so Sundance holds a special place in our relationship; it’s only fitting we had our wedding celebration there as well.

We wanted our guests to feel cozy, comfortable and welcome at the event, so we focused on a relaxed rustic mountain feel that kept things from getting too stuffy. The groomsmen wore jeans, button-up shirts and vests. Bridesmaids wore a relaxed, long-sleeve printed dress to add to the rustic vibe. And our invitation encouraged classy casual dress for our guests. We also kept the decorations personal, minimal and rustic.

For vendors, we mostly used friends and relatives of friends. Ty and I really loved the idea of employing people we know and love for our wedding, rather than strangers, so we did so at every opportunity we could. As a graphic designer, I designed our invitations, then we had them printed by our good friend Leland Rowley at Rowley Press. My dear friend Julia Smith did all of our flowers. A bridesmaid, Anna Habben, made our simple mock-cake. Erin Rupp, a sister of a friend, made the macaroons we served as dessert. Our amazing photographer, MegRuth Stay, is a dear friend. Our rings were made by a jeweler friend of Ty’s. And both family and the wedding party pitched in to decorate the venue.

If I were to offer advice to other brides out there, I would say start early and plan just a little bit at a time so you don’t get overwhelmed. And make everything simple so on the day-of you can just enjoy without having to stress over the details. As far as budget goes, use your money where it will have the most impact; minimal effort, maximum impact, that’s my motto!

    Love that the wedding party wore jeans and long-sleeve dresses! Cool-weather outdoor weddings can be so much more relaxed, but still super beautiful.

    This totally suited both the bride and groom and the entire family loved the event. Lots of fun, friends and food and not much stress. The bride/groom did an awesome job planning and executing their vision.

    Where did you get that photo book? I want to do the same thing for my wedding and with the same camera. How did you pull off people actually taking the photos?

    Wonderful wedding. It seems to have been a Sweet moment.

    Can I ask what type of camera it is?

    Hi! As far as the photo album goes, this is the skinny:

    I actually put the album together by purchasing plastic sheet business card holders and a photo album with removable pages (the kind with the screws, not the rings), and then I just put the plastic sheet business card holders into the photo album and voila! Instax sign-in book.

    The instax images are roughly the size of business cards, so it worked great. Some of the photos were a tight squeeze to get them into the plastic sheet, but overall, not bad at all. Each photo album holds a max of about 20-22 sheets (at least that’s how many mine could hold) and each page accommodates 5 sign-ins. For the sign-in cards, I had a printer cut cardstock into 2×3.5 in. cards for people to sign and insert next to their photos in the sign-in book.

    Here are links to the supplies I used:
