Elegant Fall Wedding in Utah's Rugged Mountains Thursday, March 24, 2011 ~ 3:14 p.m.

Last fall, bride and groom Evangeline and Beau married beneath a decorated arch of wild tree branches, set against what I can only describe as a dramatic, rugged backdrop just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. While this wedding may appear simply elegant and even a bit conservative upon first glance, you soon will be swayed by the bold colors and dramatic accents that are almost as unexpected as the rocky mountain that towered over the couple during their afternoon ceremony.

Photographer Sarah Drown of Sparkle Photography did an amazing job capturing every last detail of this gorgeous wedding so that I can now share them with you! Classic cameos decorated everything from the couple's elegant wedding paper by Hello! Lucky, to the simple three tier wedding cake by Pastry Arts Barrani, all the way down to the personalized red and blue M&M's that decorated the dessert table. The wedding invitations, ceremony chairs and other subtle details were decorated in classic teal, but really, no color was off limits at this wedding! The wedding decor and floral arrangements showcased a full spectrum of warm fall tones including orange, yellow and red, along with hints of navy blue and violet for contrast. The bridesmaids wore purple dresses, matching the violet hydrangeas that dominated the bride's colorful bouquet.

The evening reception was decorated with elegant white lights and lanterns of different shapes and sizes strung across the outdoor patio and dance floor. Guests enjoyed an upscale dinner straight from the grill, and then took advantage of the delectable dessert bar and impressive sweets table on display. Evangeline and Beau celebrated with their friends and family throughout the evening, only taking breaks from dancing to pose behind the clever DIY photo booth made up of several frames tied together and hung from the trees.
