Dress Code: Western Chic
It was all about blue jeans, blazers and boots for this wedding day. And no other attire could have been more appropriate for Tori + Ed’s rustic November wedding, nestled in the Timpanagos. The day was gloriously sunny, yet chilly, so the couple welcomed their guests with cable knit blankets alongside the benches for the outdoor ceremony, which were stashed away for them to take home at the end of the night. After the intimate ceremony, everyone warmed up with old-fashioned popcorn, cocktails and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in the venue’s screening room while the bride and groom snuck away to snap a few must-have pics. Once Tori + Ed rejoined the group, it was time to get the party started. With candlelight, family and great friends and tunes ranging from Bod Dylan to Jay-Z, it was a night these two will never forget.
