Bethany & Kimball

Before I get in to this wedding I want to tell you about Bethany and her dress. Bethany made her dress. Yup. As in needle and thread sewing. The best part? She had never before made one thing in her life. I didn't believe it either until she told me the entire story. It's amazing. This girl needs to be interviewed, or something, because she did a spectacular job. The materials she used were 1) an anthropologie shower curtain for the bottom portion and 2) her Grandmother's lace from her original wedding dress for the top portion. Seriously incredible.

Bethany & Kimball had the sweetest, simplest wedding. No cake, no dancing, no bouquet/garter toss. Just a simple ceremony and a greeting line to see their guests. It was beautiful for so many reasons. Bethany & Kimball are so kind, so precious to one another. It was beyond obvious to me and I had just met them! I couldn't be happier they chose me to document their day.

Enjoy the photos!

Those pictures are beautiful, Christine. But I would never expect anything less from you. And I can't believe she made her own dress - that is incredible!!

This is just lovely. And I love the idea. I wish I could see a diagram that broke down which part of her dress was shower curtain and which was grandma's lace!

I did actually use a Urban Outfitter's shower curtain for a baby shoot, and as a table cloth at a styled bridal shower. Those stores have some awesome stuff!!!

What a gorgeous wedding! I love the simplicity and timelessness of it all. Can you please tell me where the reception was held?

The reception was held at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in the Wasatch Room on the 10th floor.
