utah weddings on a budget: a series.

weddings can be dang expensive.
i think we all know that.
while planning my wedding, i was able to find places and people who had high quality skills and talents, but for a fraction of the cost of what others were paying!
as i looked around on the internet for ideas, i wished that there was a blog that listed some inexpensive places/people/things who offered wedding services.
so, for future utah brides, i hope that their google search leads them here for some awesome places i found while i was planning my wedding!!!
since we got our wedding pics back, i will be sharing some of those for the next little bit, i hope you guys won't get sick of them haha ;)
part i: temple.
Before I get into the financial biz,I want to share some of our wedding day-day photo's at the LDS Bountiful, Utah Temple! This is where my husband Justin and I were sealed to each other,forever & ever.

our family waiting for us.

here we are!

his grandma.

his parents.

Now for some bride//groom shots...

We were SO lucky that the day was absolutely beautiful... September 22nd, high of 85 degrees. It was actually really warm, but the flowers and trees were so beautiful. I was happy it didn't rain or anything!

Sorry for the picture overload!! maybe,haha.

Stay tuned for more!

I do think hiring a wedding planner is quite necessary if you have enough budget and it's a medium or large wedding with at least 100 wedding guests!
