Against the backdrop of one of Utah’s wildest, most beautiful landscapes—Canyonlands National Park—Ayrowyn and Brian pledged their future to one another at the Green River Overlook, located just outside of Moab, on August 27th. The open-air, Canyonlands micro-wedding featured live cello music, a cake cutting and a few immediate family members. The couple wrote their own vows, which included these words from Brian: “Ayrowyn, of all the people you’ve met, and all the places you’ve been on your journey in life, you somehow ended up with a guy from Tampa, Florida who didn’t even know where Utah was on the map five years ago.”
