Rebecca and Luke, from Salt Lake City, have cherished their love of Southern Utah throughout their courtship so it only seemed natural to plan their wedding in Springdale, Utah and Zion National Park! The Cliffrose Lodge and Gardens seemed to be the natural place since it has always been Rebecca’s dream to marry alongside the Virgin River. With a small group of their closest family and friends they had a beautiful bohemian themed “Hazards of Love” wedding! Themed after their song by the Decemberists which they used as their first dance song.
Love the feather backed boutonniere on this handsome groom and the dangling jewels dripping from the bride’s bouquet!

Couple photo’s in Zion National Park…..look at that gorgeous scenery!
Guests were greeted by natural bags filled with lavender buds with the printed ceremony program. At the ceremony exit the guests showered the bride and groom as they walked back down the aisle with the lavender!
The bride and groom sealed their love at the ceremony by enclosing their love letters in this wine box to never open unless times were so tough they would feel there was nothing left of their love….then they would remember their wedding day and relive it again!
Love letters to each other!
The wedding ceremony took place along the banks of the Virgin River flanked with baby’s breath in rustic buckets and feather garlands flowing in the breeze!

Rebecca and her gorgeous bridesmaids- such a fun touch with their individual parasols!

This painting was the guest sign in to add their notes of love
The couple served various drinks to their guests atop a unique chest of drawers, we loved their framed caption that got the party off to a bubbly start!
Beautiful assorted glassware added pizzaz and an array of colors to the tables.
Love this creative use of succulence as table decor!
Beautiful wax-seal embellished notes to wedding guests sat alongside their dinner plates.
Once the nighttime hours arrived the gorgeous tabletops sparkled even more and reflected the beautiful overhead twinkle lights.
What a sweet and romantic nook, a special kissing tree the couple made good use of!
