Published! Utah Bride and Groom Magazine

Monday, January 4th, 2010

I'm so trilled that Jenn and Josh's mountain wedding at The Canyons was published in the new 2010 Utah Bride and Groom magazine. It's such an honor to have a wedding featured in this awesome local bridal magazine. I highly recommend that you pick up your own copy and read the article. Jenn and Josh first met at The Canyon's in Park City, Utah and are originally from California. They decided to go back to the place where they first met to exchange vows on top of the mountain at the Red Pine Lodge. This wedding is also featured on the Utah Bride and Groom Blog.

A special thanks to Heather at Heather Nan Photography for 2nd shooting with me for this wedding. Here is her post about the article.
