Utah Wedding Photography - Adriana + Landon

Adriana + Landon
June 25, 2010
Salt Lake Temple
La Callie


Occupations: Students. Landon is attending BYU & Adriana is attending UVU.

How the couple met: We met last August 2009 at a bon fire through mutual friends.

How he proposed: On a Sunday evening Landon disappeared with the excuse that he had to "study" for finals. After a while of not hearing from him at all (NOT normal) I decided to give him a call. He didn't answer. I tried again a few more times and still no answer. Finally Landon called me back and told me to meet him at this special spot that we had previously taken walks to. As I was walking I saw Landon down the path sitting on a bench. When I got there he had written the cutest letter. The letter had inside jokes and sayings that we had together. After I read it Landon got down on one knee and proposed!

Bridal shower/Bachelorette party: My Friend Autumn and her mom, Kim, threw me a wonderful bridal shower about a month before the wedding. The night before the wedding my mom, sister, cousins, aunts, friends etc. went and got manicures and pedicures.

Bachelor party: Landon went with the boys to watch a movie.


Ceremony Place: Salt Lake Temple

Date: June 25, 2010

The bride wore: A dress by Anjelique. I got it at The Perfect Dress in Cottonwood Heights. I absolutely loved it!

The groom wore: A grey tuxedo from Men's Warehouse. It looked incredible!


Reception Place: La Caille in Sandy, UT

Wedding music: DJ Eli Fillmore. He played a variety of music and did an amazing job! We heard about him through La Caille's preferred vendors list.

Wedding song: Man and Wife by Michelle Featherstone.

Hours d'oeurves: Thai Chicken Skewers & Bruschetta
Salad: Mixed Green Salad
Main Course: Double entree- Mango Chicken & Braised Beef Tenderloins on steamed vegetables.
Dessert: Dessert buffet of wide assortment of French inspired desserts & wedding cake.

Cake: Granite Bakery & Bridal. The brides cake was a cheesecake flavor and cream filling. It was an ivory 3 tier cake with cascading fondant flowers in varying shades of yellow highlighted with green fondant leaves. The groom's cake was a german chocolate cake with caramel filling. It was in the shape of Texas (where Landon is from) with a collage that had a Taiwanese flag, a BYU logo & a football reflecting where Landon served his mission, where he goes to school and his participation in BYU football. I was very impressed with how it all turned out!

Colors: Butter Yellow & Kiwi Green with Ivory & Grey accents.

Theme: French Garden Wedding.

Flowers: Flowers by Pamela

D├ęcor elements: Lots and lots of flowers in everything from center peices & cake decor to wedding party accesories. We also had table over lays, paper flower balls hanging from ceiling and a moss letter monogram (the letter 'J') hanging at the head table to resemble our last name, Jaussi.

Unique details: All the wedding favors were homemade. My aunt made solid chocolate mini wedding cakes in white, milke and dark chocolate. We then decorated them with a glistening sugar over lay and a small white & yellow flower on top. They were adorable! We also made the paper flower balls. A lot of work but everything paid off and looked amazing.


Bride's answer: After leaving the temple it was just Landon and I driving to our luncheon. I remember looking at him and feeling so peaceful and happy to be with my HUSBAND. He was my husband now, finally!

Groom's answer: The first time Adriana referred to me as her husband outside the temple when we were taking pictures. It was very surreal, in a good way.


Place: El Conquistador Resort in Puerto Rico

A memorable moment of the honeymoon: Jet skiing in the Caribbean while Landon continuously attempted to tip us over. I was freaking out to say the least.

WEDDING ADVICE: Enjoy being engaged, don't get too stressed out over the little things because it will all come together. For the wedding day also enjoy and have fun. Take moments throughout the day to just let it sink in so it can truly be the best day of your life.
