When I think of Utah I think of red rocks, southwestern landscapes, roadrunner cartoons and salt flats. It's a gorgeous square of land, but I never once imagined I'd be photographing a wedding there among tropical plants and exotic succulents.
Karissa and Thomas' wedding took place at a nursery called Cactus and Tropicals just outside of Salt Lake City. It's got a lovely little greenhouse filled with lush plants, beautiful frosted glass and rows of string lights. When you fill it up with a beautiful couple, good friends and a big family, it all but guarantees a fantastic wedding.
It's always a treat to photograph in a new place, but this was a special treat. The venue was great and the guests were marvelous. It was an escape from the world in the best possible way and I'm proud to have been a part of it.
