I Do, I Do, I Do

SAGE ADVICE Plan a wedding, plan a marriage. 

It was my (Briana Stewart, managing editor of Utah Valley Bride) third wedding anniversary yesterday. And I got nostalgically smitten looking back on that most happy of days. My groom! My gown! My photos! My cake! I still revel in it all.

But do you know what makes me even more smitten? My marriage. 

In this gloriously giddy time of planning your wedding (and plan your heart out, baby), remember the marriage.

It's the best wedding gift of all.

Make A Night Of It

SAGE ADVICE Take some bridals/groomals in the evening!

Want your photos to stand out? Save a part of your shoot for after the sun goes down. 

We're talkin' a night-and-day difference.

Oh, Baby

Congratulations to Jessie Evans, of Jessie Alexis Photography fame. She just had a lovely baby girl named Norah. (Don't you just adore the name?)

You can check out a photo of the wee one here.

But in the meantime, we thought we'd celebrate with one of Jessie's purely perfect pics. (Don't you just adore alliteration?)

Congrats, Jessie! Utah Valley Bride is oh, so happy for you.

Eye Candy

WE DO ... party favor food!

Be sure and entertain your guests with food that is both interactive and delightfully delish. Think of it as a party favor of scrumptious proportions.
