We asked the couple to share some of their memories from their beautiful wedding day. 


Why did you decide to get married at Log Haven in Salt Lake City?

We wanted an outdoor venue that highlighted the beautiful mountain scenery found here in Utah and Log Haven was conveniently located just up the road from Logan’s Grandparents’ house.


What was your favorite moment from your summer wedding at Log Haven?

Logan: My favorite moment was watching Mattie walk down the aisle. Mattie: My favorite moment was the ceremony. We spent a lot of time carefully crafting how we wanted our story shared with our loved ones and it turned out so beautifully. 


Describe the overall mood or theme (ex: classic, color palette, modern, boho)



What were the highlights of your ceremony?

It was raining so heavily right before our ceremony began and then as soon as it was time to start the rain magically cleared, the blue sky came out, and there was this amazing mist that encompassed the entire meadow. The other highlight of our ceremony was definitely how personal and unique it felt to us.


What were the highlights of your reception?

We danced literally all night long thanks to the awesome energy and music provided by Jerseystreet. 


Were any ethnic, religious, cultural, or family traditions included in your day?

Both of my parents walked me down the aisle and I really wanted to incorporate the same crystal candle stick holders that were also at my Grandparents’ wedding in 1955. 


Any planning or wedding-day advice for future couples?

Book your venue and then decide on your most important items. Those should be your first priority when it comes to booking vendors. When it comes to the wedding day, try to focus on yourself and your partner and enjoy the event you’ve put together. You’ve hired great vendors and they’ll take care of everything else. 


How was the overall experience of your planning? Also, the highs and lows?

Log Haven made planning everything so much easier with their list of frequently used vendors so we didn’t have to go through absolutely every vendor available in Salt Lake. It was still really stressful because of the post-pandemic wedding boom and trying to get everything booked in a timely manner.

Hands down, picking bridesmaid dresses that everyone would feel comfortable in and our ceremony music was the most difficult part of the entire process. The vendors really know their craft and can easily help you choose something to fit your vision and budget. 


Read Their 5-Star Wedding Photography Review: 

“My husband and I were looking for a photographer with a classic, genuine, authentic style for our wedding day and I’m so glad we found Austen. We knew as soon as we met with him that he was a great fit. Austen has such an easygoing personality but also knows how to command a large group. His photos were superb and exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. Every vendor we hired was so excited we were working with Austen and gushed about how amazing he was and we couldn’t agree more!” –Mattie

“Austen was amazing and easy to work with. His photos were spectacular; not to mention he knew the area well!” –Logan



From the stunning mountain scenery, amazing vendors, and to the personal touches that made their day unique, Mattie and Logan’s summer wedding at Log Haven was a celebration of love and family.  




We'll capture honest photos and fleeting moments that bring you back to remember exactly how it felt—the joy, the jitters, the crazy party, the wild love.
