We’re living for autumn outdoor weddings now that temperatures are cooling down, and Sarah and Noah’s fall mountain wedding at Log Haven did not disappoint. The couple wanted nothing more than to create a cozy atmosphere where their guests could enjoy their favorite part of Utah. The outdoor ceremony featured sweeping mountain and forest views, a warm burgundy and navy color palette, and an over-the-top bridal bouquet put together by Living Creations. Oh, and a ring mishap that made for some pretty great photos.
The reception was complete with a romantic first dance under fairy lights, a minimalistic yet rustic cake from Cravings Alisha’s Cupcakes, and a whole lot of shots. That’s right—these two kept the party going all night long.

Why Log Haven
When planning our wedding, we quickly got set on having a fall wedding up in the mountains. We found the perfect setting at Log Haven in September. We wanted our guests from out of state to really be able to experience our favorite part of Utah–the beautiful mountains! So we were really inspired by the mountains and nature.
A Ring Mishap
During the middle of the ceremony, my sister (maid of honor) dropped Noah’s ring in the grass. Our officiant stopped the ceremony for a couple of minutes while all my bridesmaids helped her find it. It was found, but all we could do was laugh during this unexpected part of our ceremony. The pictures of this still make me laugh–seeing my bridesmaids on the ground looking for the ring.
Wedding Advice From The Bride
I’d say planning early and giving yourself enough time to plan relieves a lot of stress. We got engaged in September 2018 and married in September 2019. Having a full year of planning was great for us. Planning a few things at a time helped us not feel so overwhelmed. The first thing we planned was our venue. I’d say that’s the best first plan to make, and getting that set with your date will be so helpful. You’ll feel like you’ve accomplished so much from just that!
