Vivid Utah Wedding Dripping with Flowers

September 18, 2023 BY: Bailey

“I am the head florist for Bronte’s Florals (located in Salt Lake City, Utah) and me and my team did the flowers for my own wedding. After 6 years in the wedding industry I was finally able to bring all my own opinions to the table, and that included a lot of flowers, COLOR and some personal touches. Favorite things about my wedding: A few years into dating we decided to up our cooking game and start reading cook books and testing our skills at more ethnic cooking from countries all around the world. At that point, I had an idea I wanted to marry Taylor though we hadn’t talked about it and asked him to save any bottles from our cooking that I could recycle and use for flowers for my business. I didn’t use them for my business, but instead secretly collected them over the years knowing I wanted to make a display of them as vases for flowers at our wedding. Our dessert table had those bottles with flowers in them. My ring was floral/vine inspired and has London Blue Topaz (my favorite as a little girl growing up in my dad’s jewelry shop) and White Sapphire which symbolize trust and forgiveness and romance and friendship. My sister owns Quin’s Bridal and custom made my wedding dress. Inspired by Savin London dresses, the bottom half was to look like 3D floral/butterflies, and we wanted a romantic sleeve and A-line shape. For flowers I really wanted the focus to be on the raining floral ceiling. I pictured this big moment where we invited all the guests to the dance floor with their partners and all got to dance under a floral rain together while my new sister-in-law Bri Stauss sang Can’t Help Falling In Love With You. I also wanted some sort of immersive floral entrance that guests could walk through and take pictures with- they called it ‘flower trees’ since it was close to Christmas and did look like a flower Christmas tree. It was a 3 part broken arch in the entrance. Instead of a sign in book, we had sign in quilt squares- my mom is a quilter and is going to take the messages on the quilt squares and sew them into a quilt in our wedding colors. The color palette is inspired by fruit and I described it as such: mango, blueberry, plum, raspberry. I wanted mismatched bridesmaid dresses and for the colors to be bold and vibrant! Our first dance was to “How Long Will I Love You” by Ellie Goulding. I especially like the lyrics ‘how long will I love you, as long as stars are above you’ as our first date (and date for every anniversary, including the one on which I proposed to him) was stargazing out in the mountains. I proposed. It was personal, there were no cameras involved or people to be seen, and we didn’t tell anyone for at least a month after because we wanted to keep it to ourselves for a bit before diving into wedding planning. We took formal photos about a month before the wedding and I am SO glad we did. We got pictures with gorgeous fall colors and they are some of my favorite photos. We got excited for the wedding, and are super lovey in the pictures- whereas on the wedding day we could spend more time with family and were less worried about getting good pictures of ourselves.”
