Brayden and Tori are the cutest couple! Tori actually was planning on serving an LDS mission, but when she met Brayden she took a leap of faith and fell in love. A wedding was in the works instead. Someone had give Brayden, Tori’s number and told him to call her. They immediately made a date and the rest was history. I enjoyed every moment photographing these two. They are both gentle and kind. We took their photos in downtown Ogden and also some overlooking North Ogden and Pleasant View. These two were such good sports. The weather started out nice and then turned into a windy, coldy shoot. I asked them if they wanted to reschedule or quit and try again another day, but these two were up for an adventure. You would never know how cold and windy it was during their photo session. They are so in love and it shows.
The formal session took place at the Ogden Temple and Mantua. Tori wore a beautiful, flowy dress and had the most gorgeous bouquet. Funny side note, is that her aunt helped make the bouquet and it was hands down one of my favorite bouquets ever! Brayden looked handsome in his navy suit and was so excited to see his bride for the first time. We did a first look and I had her stop and just hold him for a second before he turned around. The excitement for these two were obvious. It was fun as Tori’s dad, mom, and sister also got to witness the first look and help with the session. I always welcome extra helpers. My husband did the videography and filmed the first look as well as the formals at the temple. We had to move quickly to get to the temple, but the tulips were absolutely gorgeous!
Their wedding day was a beautiful, warm day. I’m so glad we took their formals at the temple previously, because as I showed up to the temple they had cleared out ALL of the flower beds. They were just dirt. I’m so glad we got some beautiful, flower photos previously.
Their reception was held at Union Station and it was one of the most beautifully decorated receptions that I have been to. Tori’s grandma, mom, and aunts were the ones that decorated it so gorgeously. I told them they really need to go into the business, because they did absolutely an amazing job. The details of a wedding are my favorite and they knocked it out of the park.
