Emily wore a gorgeous lace layered Maggie Sottero strapless dress and her five bridesmaids all wore long one shoulder Quartz colored dresses from David’s Bridal. Joshua wore a tux from Men’s Wearhouse as did his five groomsmen. And with Logan Walker Photography capturing every detail, the soiree took place at La Caille Weddings and Events in Sandy, Utah. The theme was mostly with Emily’s colors of lavender, and light gray, which we think is superbly sophisticated.
She told us she had toured a bunch of other sites for the location, but upon stepping out of the car on La Caille’s brick driveway, she was sold! The landscaping is just breathtaking. Her mother escorted her down the aisle because her father passed away four years ago. But she decided to incorporate him into the wedding by framing a picture of him and placing it on a chair during the ceremony, along with a lavender pin that all the fathers wore that day.
How we met: He went to Springville High and I was from American Fork High. We met our senior year at MountainLand Applied Technology College in a Pharmacy Technician course. It was only offered at the Orem location. One day we were standing around in the halls, waiting for class to start, at this point, we had never spoken, just noticed each other. The first words he utters: “I like your pants.” I guess from then on he had me.
Proposal: He told me to be at his house at six in the morning on July 24th, 2014. I kind of new something was up since we had been dating three years and talked a lot about marriage. I just wasn’t sure what exactly. So I arrived at his house early that morning, and he told me to hop in the car because we had somewhere to be. Now this man doesn’t wake up at six am ever for anything, so I knew almost immediately something big was going to happen today. We drove for about 20 minutes before arriving at the salt lake city airport.
Despite my nagging and questioning about where we were going, he didn’t cave. We passed through security and arrived at our gate. To my surprise, it said Seattle, WA, my fiance’s favorite city. The plane ride was about an hour and a half. But we got to Seattle fairly early. It was beautiful. He had a couple of things planned on the agenda. A duck bus tour of Seattle and later dinner at the space needle. So naturally, I expected him to pop the big question on top of the space needle during a romantic dinner. Wrong, very wrong. The duck bus is perfectly named because it is an oddly shaped bus that goes around the city stopping at certain points. Then, however, it gets its “duck” name because the bus drives straight into Lake Union. Well, I was so fascinated by what was happening around me that I was tuning our driver out a little. But there was one phrase I did happen to hear; “Josh had something he would like to say today.” I couldn’t believe it was happening, there on the duck bus, but sure enough, he knelt down on one knee and purposed. It was one of the greatest days of my life.
Thanks for stopping by!
