Wedding: Salt Lake Temple and Cactus and Tropicals

Trent and Eliza have great style and really fun friends.  They were married in December, but it was the most warm, beautiful winter day I've experienced.  I don't even remember Eliza being cold out there in her dress (she might remember otherwise).  The reception at Cactus and Tropicals was lovely, a great venue for a winter wedding.  The centerpieces were made of ice and held candles and greenery.  The crepes and hot chocolate were delicious and the music was just my style (Trent and Eliza-who was your DJ?).  They had tons of guests come through their line, but were able to break off at the end and boogie.  That was a blast to watch and photograph.  Leisha, my trusty and talented second photographer, manned...er womanned the photo "booth".  I say "booth" so no one gets confused.  We bring in our backdrop and lights and take fun shots of wedding guests and you get to see the photos after the wedding.  Just to be clear, no photo comes popping out of anywhere (oh, the visions I'm having after writing that).  Congratulations, Trent and Eliza and thank you for such a fun day.

They had a crepe and hot chocolate bar.  The delicious smell of chocolate and flavorings filled the room.
