Bountiful Temple Wedding photographed by Utah Wedding photographer, Becky Ravenberg of Ravenberg Photography a local Utah wedding photographer

I LOVE LOVE LOVE when couples share cute stories with me about how they meet.  Here is a sweet but fun story about how Cristina and Mike meet.  I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did!  Oh, and then you need to check out the super cute photos of them on their wedding day at the Bountiful Temple!  So stinking cute with the two lovees and all the pink blossoms in the trees!  LOVE Bountiful Temple in the springtime!  Anyway, here is Cristina and Mike’s fun story!

We met through mutual friends at a BBQ. It was a bring your own meat, but I didn’t bring anything because I had already eaten. But once I started smelling everyone’s food I started getting really hungry. So I begun asking people for little pieces of their food. Most of them were guys and they are acted like it was a horrible thing I had asked for a piece of their precious food. But then I asked Mike, whom I had just met. He not only gave me a big chunk of his steak (the best tasting one by the way), but he brought me utensils and a cup of water. That’s why I feel in love with him because of his stake grilling skills and his kind heart:)

Salt Lake City Temple Wedding

Rob and Yael had an amazing Salt Lake City wedding.  All the details where so stunning and you could just feel how much they loved each other.  It was so great to be a part of their wedding!

Their Engagement story:
I was going to be sent on a 2 month work assignment to Singapore in July 2014. Knowing how close Singapore was from unique places in South East Asia, Rob and I decided to plan a vacation at the end of my assignment. I was really impressed that Rob wanted to come visit me on the other side of the world. When i was in Singapore, I saved my money and counted down the days for when I would meet him again. I knew we would have the best time ever!
 
He finally arrived in Singapore. I was so excited and had missed him so much. I would daydream about us and how ideal it would be if he proposed during that trip. Bali was our first destination. It was majestic and full of beautiful temples and beaches. We had so many magical moments while we were there, that I frequently thought “I wish he proposed right now.” (Now i know that he had also thought about proposing at some of those places).
 
Our last day in Bali, we decided to go to the beach for a walk in the morning. It was a long beautiful beach. The sea, the sand, the sky, ah! It was all so perfect! He asked me, “have you ever thought of where our relationship is going?” And i said “what do you mean?” I wanted him to be more specific. Then he said, “have you ever thought about us getting married?” which made my heart start beating fast and my legs go weak. Then, trying to keep my cool, i said, “Yes, i.. i.. have considered it… i.. i would marry you”. Then he said, “You have already answered, but i haven’t asked you… Would you marry me?” I said YES, YES, YES! and we walked to the side of the beach trying to internalize the moment and capture the beauty of it all. We sat down and he read me “A perfect poem for a perfect girl”. I was out-of-this-world happy! 
 
The rest of the trip was amazing. We shared getting really sick and tired. We might have got mad once. But there were plenty of fun adventures, and loving words, and caring for each other.We just knew we were meant to be together and can’t wait to start our new life together.

Keep that genuine selfless interest in the well-being and happiness of one another and you two will have the most joyful marriage ever!

Salt Lake Temple Wedding

Having a Salt Lake Temple wedding is kinda like getting married in Cinderella’s Castle, or at least I imagine it being that way.  The Salt Lake Temple does look a lot to me like a princess castle.  The Salt Lake Temple weddings that I have shot there are always happy and picture perfect.  I can’t wait for all my brides this season having Salt Lake Temple Weddings!

Fun facts about the couple:
-Alex and I met when we were 15 years old and dated off and on in high school. Then when we moved to college (we didn’t plan to go to the same college or live in the same apartment complex) but we ended up living a few doors away from each other and it didn’t take long for either of us to realize that we were meant for each other. It was all about timing. We started dating in December of 2012 and have been best friends ever since. We have been through so much together and have kept our relationship strong even when I was in Walt Disney world for 4 months last fall in Florida. Alex came to visit me in October and proposed to me at dinner inside Cinderella’s castle. It was a dream come true.:)

Utah Bride and Groom

Utah Bride and Groom:  This warm weather in February is really making me miss shooting Utah brides and grooms in the springtime!  I am seriously getting cabin fever!  I would love to get out and shoot in a meadow of blooming wild flowers! This bride and groom wanted to take some wedding photos at this is place historic park and then add on a second location at the Great Salt Lake’s State park Saltair.  I love shooting at both locations.  They fit this bride and groom perfectly!  Here is there story if you missed it when I posted their wedding photos. Here is a link to their wedding photos.

Here is the couples story!

I think our best couple claim to fame is Micah’s awesome proposal. My favorite holiday is Halloween, like, I’m obsessed with it. I thought micah might want to propose on Halloween so I kinda expected it. He ask me a few months before if he could lie to me for the sake of me not finding out about the proposal, and from then on he lied a lot I guess I’m pretty good at finding stuff out so he pulled out all the stops so I would have no idea. He faked a business trip to California, even sent me fake pictures, he made my roommate and friend lie to me about having free tickets to fear factory in salt lake. It was great. My roommate and I got “VIP” passes to skip the line and go through the haunted house together. It was awesome, and near the end there was a haunted carnival with a bunch of clowns running around. A fortune teller came up to me and said my name and led me into a dark corner. I was kinda freaked out wondering how they knew my name, if this was micah’s doing, what was happening. I dismissed the thought of a proposal because I thought micah was out of state on a business trip. The rest is kind of a blur but I remember one clown asking me all these personal questions and then from the back of the crowd of clowns micah came out, took off his mask, got down on one knee and proposed amid the chainsaws and screams of the haunted house. It might have been weird to anyone else but it was more than I could have ever dreamed. So much fun and so creative! He got someone to take pictures of the whole thing it was awesome!
