One of the many wedding venues Salt Lake City provides includes the stunning and relaxing Atrium Weddings at Western Gardens in Sandy, Utah. It was a privilege for me to witness this event in June. I enjoyed the love and tenderness this couple shares with each other and their families. The couple chose to have their ceremony performed outside in the patio waterfall area of the venue. The gentle breeze helped to keep it cool for guests. The bride’s family arranged for a long cloth runner for the bride to walk upon. At the beginning was the couple’s name and the date of their special day.
There was nothing too out of the ordinary in the procession until the flower girl, the groom’s daughter, appeared tossing her rose petals and directly behind her was another young man walking. He was adorable all dressed in his tux vest, boutonnière, and shiny black shoes and he was carrying a sign “Last Chance to Run!” A wave of chuckles covered the audience. He smiled the entire way. It was picture perfect!
Then the audience arose and the stunning blond bride appeared with that twinkle in her eye. She was escorted by her father who apparently is dealing with some serious health issues, thus creating a sweet tender moment for father and daughter. Salt Lake wedding venues like Atrium Weddings count it a blessing to be part of such sweet experiences.
I failed to give credit to another young family member who shared her talent of playing the harp for prelude music. With the waterfall cascading behind her, and a picturesque view Twin Peaks, her beautiful notes created such a lovely ambiance, perfect for this bride and groom.
The ceremony was short and sweet and everyone in attendance could see the love this couple has for each other.
After the vows and congratulating the newlyweds was over, their professional photographer Ashlee of Ashes to Ashes Photography took some wonderful photos that captured the fun personality of this newly formed family.
The dinner and reception were held inside the Atrium’s indoor garden room. Beautiful flower arrangements adorned the hall that were created by Celestial Floral and the elegant cake was created by a longstanding local favorite Granite Bakery.
I must also mention that at the sign-in table, a special memorial with photo was set there to remember a loved one that had departed.
Wedding venues in Salt Lake City like Atrium Weddings at Western Gardens Sandy are beautiful locations to host beautiful memories that will honor the bride and groom for many years to come.
