White Shanty Wedding | Melissa + Ethan

I absolutely loved shooting this White Shanty wedding in Provo, Utah. It’s such a beautiful, open, white space that makes for gorgeous photos even when it starts to get dark. There is so much light in the place it makes everything sparkle.

Melissa and Ethan were a delight to work with. I met them through one of my very good friends and fellow photographer, Lindsey Harmer. Melissa is Lindsey’s sister and they needed a photographer that wasn’t in the wedding party already. They were so endearing to each other and gracious to their guests. They were so much in love it was contagious. 

Melissa’s family made a lot of the desserts that were provided. And all I can say is one word: Swig Cookies. Now, if you’ve never had a “swig” cookie before or don’t know what they are I’m here to tell you. Swig is a local drink place that also sells sugar cookies. I’ve never had a homemade swig cookie before that I actually liked. These were perfect! They were like legit copies of it. I’m not sure they would share the recipe, but you bet I’m going to be asking them for it!

Not only is the White Shanty a perfect wedding venue, but it was the perfect combination of a gorgeous day, supportive family and most of all a romantic couple. Between the flowers, the decorations and the food everything was set up perfectly for their wedding reception.
