Congratulations to Sam and Deb!

The wedding was gorgeous, as was the bride.  The reception was fabulous.  But the thing I can't get over is the send-off:

Shall we back up a bit and see what else happened?  Our story begins at the Draper, Utah LDS Temple:

The reception was at a beautiful, mountainside home with the most amazing views of the mountains and the valley that I have ever seen (we shot the bridals there a few weeks ago).  It was stunning.  But, uh, this is a view of the cake:

There was a fire about thirty miles away that added some mystique to the sunset :)

These two little cousins danced together all night:

This looks painful doesn't it?  I snapped this the THIRD time he did it:

And then, of course, it ended with this:

Bridals with Deb

Bridals with Deb can only be described as FUN ("fun" doesn't quite do it).  She makes me laugh.  This first photo looks so Bollywood to me -- I love it.  I love the pose, I love the soft pink lighting of the sunset in her veil, and I love that it was completely spontaneous.

I can't decide if I like this one better in color or black and white, what do you think?

And this is Deb's niece.  I was packing up my camera when I turned and saw her wrapped in this sheet, posing for me.  How could I not take a picture of such a lovely little "bride?"
