Rachel and Cade were married in a 117-year-old organic pear orchard and it could not have been any more charming!

The Villa in Cedar Hills, UT was the perfect wedding venue for them. It's Italian inspired decor, it's sweet garden, lush foilage...it was perfectly classic and romantic.

Those two words describe Rachel & Cade perfectly.


An unexpected rainstorm swept over the Villa as the bride and groom prepared for the day and all of their amazing vendors came together to keep everything as safe and dry as possible. We've all heard that rain on a wedding day is bad luck but no amount of bad luck could have ruined their unforgettable ceremony. The sun came out just in time to bathe their ceremony in a warm golden light and it was absolutely perfect. The trees were glistening as raindrops fell from the orchard trees and every vendor and guest present knew that this was the fairytale ceremony Rachel and Cade deserved.


Rachel glided down the aisle like royalty and tears gathered in Cade’s eyes as soon as he laid eyes on her. Rachel met his gaze with equal love and emotion and the moments they shared were truly a sight to behold. The love in their eyes was so beautiful and sincere. As a wedding photographer, I truly live for those moments. Capturing the look in their eyes was a moment I will always treasure.

Vows were exchanged in the orchard with Cade and Rachel’s closest family and friends and everyone was filled with the sweetest sense of joy. I loved this couple so much (I still do) that my eyes were full of tears as I photographed their ceremony. We'd bonded so much on the way to and from their engagement photos in Moab and had such great communication leading up to the wedding that I was filled with so much joy for them! I was so excited to see them become husband and wife.


The reception was filled with laughter, love, and of course, sweet dance moves. Their friends and family surprised them with a super cute flash mob and the energy never died! The party started at sunset and everyone danced their heart out for hours. From the sweet ceremony to the energetic reception, everything about the wedding was perfect.
