The Johnson Mill, Heber Utah Wedding Photography - Annie + Dylan

Annie + Dylan
October 3, 2009
Johnson Mill
Midway, Utah


Occupations: Marketing & Finance

How the couple met: We both attended Rice University

How he proposed: We always take shadow pictures when we travel, especially at the beach. In March we took a weekend trip to Ft Lauderdale, where it was a little cloudy but still tropical compared to the New York winter. During a break in the clouds, we were taking our usual shadow pics, when Dylan said he had a good idea for another picture, but required a prop. He told me to close my eyes and get the camera ready to take the shot while I waited. When I opened my eyes, Shadow Dylan was down on a knee, "holding" the ring box, which was sitting in the sand. Shadow Annie gave a thumbs up in response.

Bridal shower/Bachelorette party: Shower thrown by Dylan's family friends in Bridgeport, TX and a brunch thrown by bridesmaids in Houston.

Bachelor party: None, but went golfing Friday morning!

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT - no single moments stand out for us, we had so much fun throughout the entire day


Place: Vomo Island, Fiji

A memorable moment of the honeymoon: A few hours after we arrived, we were walking along the beach on the far side of the island (away from the rooms) when a boat sped up to us and 2 staff hurriedly urged us to get in. There had been an earthquake in a nearby (for the South Pacific) island, causing a tsunami warning in Fiji. We spent the next hour or so with the rest of the resort's guests, halfway up the mountain in the middle of the island, waiting for the warning to be called off.
