Embrace the beauty of their romantic fall pastel mountain wedding by viewing Logan Walker Photography’s amazing captures below.
Why did you pick that location for your ceremony?
Mid Mountain lodge is a beautiful outdoor setting nestled in Park City Mountain Resort. The bride grew up in Park City and learned to ski at PCMR, the groom is an avid skier, so a ski resort location seemed only natural.
Did someone escort you down the aisle? My little brother
Who and why did you pick that escort?
I wanted him to have an important part in the ceremony and it was an easy solution to the step father/biological father dilemma.
Favorite ceremony memory?

THE RECEPTION Talk to me about the decor!
We wanted the decor to be somewhat understated given that the location and time of year provided ample rustic decor and beautiful foliage and color. I worked with my florist to come up with flowers that would enhance the natural beauty and lend to a rustic elegant ambiance. She suggested we incorporate birch wood and copper accents into the flower design to complement the aspen trees and foliage.
Our reception area was relatively simple: ivory and blush linens. Flowers arrangements in mason jars and tea lights covered the tables. Our florist repurposed the ceremony flowers for the reception to flank the sweetheart table and dance floor.
Where did you get the inspiration for your color palette and design?
The color palette essentially fell into our lap! We had chosen bridesmaid dresses and settled on a blush color because I thought it looked good on all the girls. I met with my florist the following day, gave her pictures of my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses, gave a brief description of my image and my AMAZING florist developed the perfect palette!
Describe your wedding flowers: A palette of champagne, ivory and soft peach set the tone for a romantic autumn wedding. Focal elements included hanging amaranthus, dahlias, LA hybrid lilies, Queen Anne’s lace, garden roses, hybrid tea and spray roses. They were complemented by such selections as seeded eucalyptus, silver brunia and other seasonal grasses and foliages as required to complete designs.
Were there any Do it Yourself (DIY) projects?
We (my mother and aunts) made wedding favors. They filled mini mason jars with a variety of candies and tied the jars with jute ribbon and mason jar shaped tags that said Lexie + Christian, signed with a heart
What were some personal details you incorporated? We worked very closely with our friend and officiant to create personalized vows. Our ceremony music was provided by my childhood music teacher and our flowers were provided by the florist for whom I worked in High School. As such, I worked closely with both parties to ensure everything was done to my and my husband’s personal tastes.
Old, new, borrowed, blue – Did you follow that tradition and if so, what did you use?
Yes. Old was my husband’s grandmothers ring, which was also my engagement ring and happened to have blue sapphires!
Borrowed was my paternal grandmother’s handkerchief, which has been worn by all the Etheridge women on their wedding days.
Blue was my ring and also panties!
Moments you loved, hated, cried, laughed or giggled at:
I loved every moment of my wedding, truly.
A few key moments: walking down the aisle, taking pictures with my husband, watching a slideshow of pictures of Christian and me that my sisters put together, and the first dance.
What you would have done differently, if anything: I would have had a videographer to capture the entire evening.
Any advice you have for future brides?
Delegate, delegate, delegate! It will aid in less stress on the day of. Recognize that not everything is going to go according to your structured plan, but at the end of the day, you are going to married to the love of your life! Ten years from now, you will not remember the small things that went awry. The most important thing is to have fun! Your wedding day will pass in a blink of an eye; try to slow down and enjoy every moment.
How was your wedding different than you imagined it would be (less than 30 words)?
My wedding fulfilled my wildest dreams and imagination. My vendors and family were tremendously helpful in executing all the details according to my image.
If you knew then what you know now… Stressing over the smallest details will be forgotten.
