The bride and groom chose to be married at a ranch 30 miles from Park City. We piled onto buses, and drove into the mountains.
I tried to take a picture of my hair to check it out, but I am the worst at taking photos of myself.
When we arrived at the ranch, we hiked up to the site of their “natural altar”.
It was easy to see why they chose this spot for their wedding…
The bridal party arrived, and the service was short and very sweet.
After their “I Dos” and “I Wills”, the bride and groom went to the woods to take their first walk together as a married coupe. (It was a short walk; they came right back!)
We all went down to the ranch house for a champagne toast.
The hors d’oeuvres were very tasty. This one, a stuffed endive leaf, was similar to one I made in Michigan a few weeks ago. (The lighting was great inside, but the photos didn’t turn out so well.)
The shrimp and goat cheese tartlettes were mighty fine.
Caprese kabobs are a clever way to prepare an old favorite, don’t you think?
The bride and groom hand selected all of the beverages. The whiskey was local to Utah; it was very good, and tasted a little like honey. The beer was also a local brew…
… I stuck to wine.
Oakley Four Whites is a blend from Oakley, California. I liked it quite a bit.
The light was beautiful when dinner was served. I think the house may have been an old barn!
I was seated at a table with some of my Michigan friends (and some new friends as well).
We started with a delicious salad: romaine with strawberries, tomatoes, blue cheese, and almonds. The roll was good, but I was saving room for dessert (:-D) and only had a bite.
Dinner was served buffet-style, which was a great idea and a lot easier than trying to figure out each person’s dietary needs. I filled my plate with salmon topped with a corn/tomato/avocado salsa, orzo salad, and mixed veggies. They were good, but I was hankering for salt and it was nowhere to be found.
The cake was beautiful. The top layer was chocolate, the bottom a vanilla rum with raspberries.
This is a cell phone pick, but ain’t they the cutest?
I split a piece of vanilla cake, but the photo disappeared. I also had a bite of a chocolate cupcake and a lemon square. Mmm. And OOF!
It was a beautiful wedding, made all the more so by just how darn happy everyone was. Yep, Miss LVP is turning into a sap.
