I have one word that could describe this wedding… WOW. Everything about Matt and Whitney is amazing. They have the best family in the world, they definitely know how to throw an amazing wedding and they are so completely in love with each other. I had the absolute best time hanging out with their families on their wedding day and the next Saturday at their second reception in SLC at Matt’s parents’ house. This wedding was beautiful in every way….
The day started out with a luncheon at Jakers where the parents of both the bride and groom talked about their favorite memories of the couple. Next it was Matt’s turn. But first he, with the help of his friend, sang Whitney Simon&Grarfunkel’s ‘Feelin’ Groovy”.
Matt then told his version of their love story. I love listening to the groom talk about his bride.
When it was Whitney’s turn she had a piece of paper with her… She started out by saying she’s an avid journal writer, so she went back through her journals from the last four years and found some of her favorite entries of Matt. She talked about the first day they met, how they were spending more time together… This pictures is from my favorite entry- “I kissed Matt Checketts today, WOW!”
It was the perfect start to a great day….
The first reception was at Whitney’s parents’ backyard, and it was absolutely beautiful. I loved everything about it.
Can I just say how crafty and brilliant the Burton family is?!
Whitney’s sister Courtney made these flowers.. I LOVED them!
Whitney’s mom made the cake, she’s amazing and it turned out so beautiful!
Matt and Whitney, thank you so much for letting me be apart of your day! I loved every minute of it!
Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think……
