Lien + Zack Tie the Knot

Saturday, August 26 dawned a little gloomy for Utah's super scorcher of a summer, and I worried a bit about Lien's decision to do an outdoor wedding. But it wasn't long before blue skies and the bright sun took over for the rest of the day! 


My second shooter and I met with Lien and several of her bridesmaids at a bridemaid's home in Herriman to take photos of her getting ready, as well as some detail shots. When I showed up, she was dressed a lovely silk and lace robe, her beautiful dark hair adorned with one of Lacy Lauren's Bella Via Designs headpieces and her make up was perfection. She seemed calm for just a few hours before showtime and she was super accommodating showing me where everything was so that I could get the best shots possible!


Weren't the rings gorg? 

I almost died seeing her beautiful long train on her gown and she absolutely glowed next to these high windows!


After she was dressed we headed to Daybreak to do some first look photos with her and her groom, Zack who was waiting patiently for us with his best man. Isn't he cute waiting to see his beautiful bride?


Lien and Zack have been together for quite awhile and even have two precious little one's who helped make their big day complete. 


When we were done, we headed to our venue at the bride's Uncle's home in Riverton. The ceremony was set up outside facing the gorgeous Wasatch Mountains with the setting sun behind us. It was amazing, y'all. Their ceremony was light and fun but also super heartfelt. You could tell they enjoyed being together and making this whole marriage thing official. 


Afterwards, Lien and Zack were adamant about not spending much time taking posed shots so that they could connect with their friends and family who came to see them tie the knot, but the bridesmaids and groomsmen wanted to make sure the honored couple got poses of them, ha!


 Beer was provided along with a super cute lemonade and Arnold Palmer stand, while a buffet of Asian style cuisine was served on the balcony above. 


Before leaving, I took a few more shots of Lien and Zack together with their kids and they seemed so warm toward one another, smiling and giggling with one another, the stress of the day's events finally fading away with the sunset. 


Congrats you guys!
