For a picture-perfect sunlit and fall color-tinged wedding, you can’t do much better than these celebration images from a Dove Canyon Country Club ceremony and reception, presented here by Brett Hickman Photography. Everyone gets into the spirit of the occasion early, from bridesmaids in elegant purple gowns to the bride’s favorite attendant (with four legs!), resplendent in pink, purple, and white tulle. The flower girl enjoys some “puppy time” as the maids mug for the camera, and the bride kicks up sparkly heels on the way to her sweet reveal with the groom — even if he’s already tearing up! Fortunately, he’s got a wonderful purple silk handkerchief available for those emotional moments; he and his men are dapper, indeed, in pale gray suiting and orchid boutonnieres.
The bride’s in a celebratory mood as they’re introduced as “Mr. and Mrs.” for the first time; the banquet hall is done in fabulous dark wood, white tablecloths, lavish flower arrangements, and purple and lavender light accents that contribute their own special romantic ambience to the setting. After a few post-ceremony poses in front of waterfalls and spectacular scenery, the couple delights their guests with some great moves on the dance floor; the bride makes sure her new husband has wedding-cake frosting on his nose, too! A sweet table offers purple bag favors for the guests, with the invitation to help themselves to all the sweets they can carry. Finally, after some spirited dancing (including a lively hora), the newlyweds are seen on their way under a shower of sparklers — a bright ending to a lovely day full of great memories.
