Bailey and Andrew’s day was so flipping special and we’d love to relive it over and over again!
They came from Minnesota out to Moab, to share vows other amongst the most impressive scenery you can imagine.
We began their adventure in the early hours of the morning, hiking out to a remote arch under the light of the moon. The sense of absolute peace, yet with the excitement beginning to build, was truly palpable!
Just as the light began to break, B&A got ready on opposite sides of the arch and then enjoyed a sweet first look, seeing each other all dressed up for the first time. Bailey’s dress was SPECTACULAR and she looked nothing short of a GODDESS. As the world continued to wake up around them, and the rocks glowed red with the first touch of the sun, these two had so much fun exploring. They clambered over rocks, helped each other up and over any obstacle that came their way, and laughed as they maneuvered Bailey’s giant dress through the terrain! To us, THIS is what it’s all about: having a blast and making lifelong memories with your favorite person.
After venturing back out from this remote canyon, B&A took a little time out to relax at their super cool glamping spot, Under Canvas Moab. We met them there later in the day to hang out around camp, before heading to our second epic location: a remote overlook with views for DAYS.
After exploring and checking out the killer views, B&A chose the perfect spot for their ceremony. And, ooft, what a ceremony it was! Their private vows were SO heartfelt and had all of us in tears. Andrew didn’t even write his down: he just spoke straight from the heart, the truest words there are. He commented that he hoped their marriage would be just like this whole day had been: adventuring together, forging their own path and helping each other through thick and thin. We couldn’t have put it more perfectly!
To celebrate, B&A popped open a very special bottle of Champagne. Andrew had bought it in France, many years earlier – before meeting Bailey – and had saved it in the hopes of eventually being able to pop it open on his wedding day with his new wife. Dreams DO come true!
