Alicia and Brett planned their wedding in just 6 weeks! Just goes to show that you don’t need months and months to plan a sweet, meaningful wedding.
Why did you choose this location for your wedding? St. George is Brett’s hometown and holds so many memories for us while we were dating. We also fell in love with the St. George temple and knew it was where we wanted to get married. Even though I have always wanted a summer wedding, we decided to get married in the winter – and it turned out to be a beautiful 60 degrees throughout the day!
What inspired you when you were planning your wedding? So many things! It was so hard to choose a certain style and look for the wedding since we planned it in only 6 weeks! I went back and forth a dozen times trying to narrow things down. I knew I wanted some modern elements and vintage elements as well so I mixed the two and it seemed to flow really nicely. We wanted our style to be apparent in the design and to really reflect who we are as a couple.
What was your favorite moment or part of the day? Having our families and close friends at the ceremony. It was really special and meant so much to us to have them be part of our wedding day.
Did you include any traditions in your wedding? Each Christmas my dad lines luminarias along the sidewalks and in our yard, I wanted to have that tradition be a part of our wedding so my dad gathered his supplies and hand made each luminaria the night before our wedding and placed them on the walk way where guests entered the reception.
What advice do you have for other brides? Planning a wedding is stressful, but the wedding day shouldn’t be. Try not to let the details of the wedding take your attention away – let them fall in the hands of those who are helping you.
