EYELASHES BY Extensions by Lindy (
PHOTO BY Photography by McKenzie (
PHOTO FUN FACT Our dear McKenzie is the model. 
Her very talented husband/partner, Greg, shot this session.
Want to look the part? Be a looker? Have a look-see? (Catch my vision?)

Then eyelash extensions are a sight to be seen! (I know. I need to be stopped.) Not only are they magically mesmerizing, but mascara need not apply. Can we get a hallelujah?

In any case, Lindy Hughes, of Extensions By Lindy, shares three reasons you should become a lash-full bride.

Eyelash extensions give the look of mascara without the clumps and patience that come along with it. Who wants to worry about running mascara on their big day? Eyelash extensions stay in place, are hassle free and seem to be the closest thing to natural-looking eyelashes you can get.
I have heard on NUMEROUS occasions that photographers just love when their brides have eyelash extensions. They say it makes eyes pop and eyelashes stand out — making for a perfect picture. After your wedding, pictures will be some of your only memories, so splurge and look great with eyelash extensions!
No matter where you go or what you do, you'll want to be looking your best. Eyelash extensions will allow you to just get up and go! Planning on heading to the Caribbean? Hawaii? Somewhere tropical? Even better! Your eyelash extensions are allowed to get wet. Plus, your honey will enjoy waking up to your already beautiful (and makeup-free!) face.

Round We Go


We've seen a handful of receptions getting their welcome on with wreaths! Wondrous, wow-worthy wreaths. 

We very much approve of said trend.

Silly Salute

SAGE ADVICE ... sell yourself silly.

Even though these silly shots aren't typically destined for 11x20 greatness, let your gorgeous guard down here and there and get crazy cute with your honey.

It's photos like these that will make you smile. 

Every. Single. Time.

Get Engaged

PHOTO BY Oakstream Photography (

WHAT TO LOVE The vintage coloring? The playful setting? The utter joy on their faces? What's NOT to love about this photo from the darling Alisha of Oakstream Photography?

WHAT TO LEARN When it comes to your engagement photos, there are no rules. Don't be confined by locations and wardrobes you THINK you're supposed to have. Ask yourself ... what kind of engagement session are you?

Take The Cake

WE DO ... The Magleby's chocolate cake Spanish Fork's Ashlee and Rob served at their wedding reception.
This cake wasn't voted Best of Utah Valley (in sister pub Utah Valley Magazine) for nothing. Yum and a half.

Check out more of Ashlee's nuptials (photographed by the lovely Suzanna Higginson) in our brand new issue!

HAPPY COUPLE Ashlee Jex and Robbie Stratton
