The Hills Are Alive With … a Deer Valley Resort Wedding

I suspect many of you got the reference in today’s featured wedding title … none other than ‘The Sound of Music’!

As soon as I saw this lovely young couple strolling through the hillside grass with sun beating down, I got a major flashback to the well-known opening scene starring Julie Andrews. The hills of Utah certainly are alive with the sound of wedding bells, enjoy!

The Proposal
“We hiked up the side of Grandeur Peak, where he had laid candles along the trail leading to a bench with flowers and more candles. There was a 180 degree view of the valley and we danced under the stars to the song “Thinking out Loud”. After that, Sean got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I cried a great deal that night.”

Wedding Inspiration

“I wanted light colors for summer, and these colors turned out to be the summer hit. Sean and I both love the mountains, so we wanted a mountain wedding. Sadly, the weather was very wet and we had a crazy thunder storm.”

Favorite Memory from the Wedding
“Nothing can beat the temple sealing. However I loved seeing our little nephew walk the rings down the aisle.”

Old, New, Borrowed & Blue
“The dress was new, my garter was borrowed and blue, and old were my earrings.”

Advice for Future Brides
“Do not expect everything to be perfect. Be flexible with plans and people. Relax and enjoy your day no matter what happens. The only thing that matters in the end is that you are married to your love. The most unexpected thing on my wedding day was the crazy rain storm! My wedding day was even better than I imagined it would be. Everything was absolutely incredible. Everyone involved went above and beyond to make our wedding day special.”
