Winter may be winding down here in Salt Lake City, but that doesn't mean we can't post a few more gorgeous winter weddings here on LDS Bride Blog! This winter wedding at the Salt Lake Temple comes to us from Flying Gull Photography and features the lovely couple Marissa & Andrew. These lovebirds celebrate their 1 year anniversary this month so we thought, "Hey! What an awesome anniversary present...we should feature them!" So, without further ado, here is Andrew & Marissa's cozy winter wedding at the Salt Lake Temple.
Before the wedding day, Andrew and Marissa headed up the canyon for a First Look and winter bridal session. We love the bright colors of the bouquet and her cozy fur.
Winter Wedding at the Salt Lake Temple
The couple's photographer Heather writes,
Andrew and Marissa met at a barbeque outside of the BYU football Stadium in the fall of 2015. He was parking his motorcycle when he took his helmet off, made eye-contact with her, and shined the brightest smile she had ever seen! She was hooked from there. Of course all the girls were looking so he revved his engine a couple times (show off) but she was attempting to act aloof and play it cool. He didn’t hesitate to walk right up to her, introduce himself, and offer her a ride to Sodalicious for a drink together. How could she say no to that smile? Marissa found him to be attractive, smart, and funny; but what truly set him apart was how much love he expressed for his friends and family-particularly his younger brother. Andrew loves with such intensity and his confidence is enthralling to say the least.
His passion for life caught Marissa by surprise and his deep “Beaty” laugh swept her off her feet. Every time they would attend a group gathering or event, he would find those who were alone and include them. He would throw rocks at Marissa's window to ‘make her feel like a princess.’ He left her notes as surprises and took her to places she had never been. His small and simple acts of love and kindness took her to a beautiful place she had never been-a true and deep love. It didn’t take long until he had Marissa's heart-not to mention all of her friends’ and family’s as well.
Marissa says, "He has the manners of a gentleman and his quiet dignity helps to calm my fears and strengthen my spirit. His love gives me confidence in our ability to work as a team raising a faith-filled family and a Christ-centered home. He has asked me every day since we’ve met, 'Marissa, what can I do to make your day better?' I’m so grateful for my Beaty Boy and the love he brings to my life."
Thank you for sharing this beautiful winter wedding with us and Happy Anniversary to Andrew & Marissa!
