Photographer Jackie Siggard captures a heartwarming first look at Little Dell Reservoir for lovebirds Ally & Tyson, full of emotional moments and timeless fashion.
Ally & Tyson grew up a mere fifteen minutes apart in Draper and Bluffdale, respectively, but didn’t connect until later in life when a friend set them up on a date.
Five months to the day after their first date, Tyson popped the question. “I know it seems super short, but in the moment it felt so long,” Ally shares. “After the first two weeks of dating, I already knew he was perfect for me!”
The moment came as a complete surprise to Ally. They had the ring, but it was supposedly back ordered for a few weeks. So when Tyson told her to get ready for a “five month anniversary” date, she didn’t think anything of it. That is, she didn’t think anything was odd until Tyson arrived at the door dressed in a flannel and a vest in eighty-degree weather.
The pair drove up to Sundance Resort, where after a romantic dinner, Tyson asked Ally to marry him. Once she accepted, their families arrived on-scene to celebrate.
In preparation for the wedding day, the couple enlisted Jackie Siggard to capture their engagement and bridal galleries ahead of time. On the shores of Little Dell Reservoir in Salt Lake City, the photographer snapped a stunning gallery of formals and an intimate vow exchange between the pair, showcasing their true love and joy.
Ally’s gown, purchased from Pritchett Bridal, was expertly constructed in buttery crepe with a voluminous train and perfectly tailored bodice. “I wanted something simple and classic that would never go out of style, but also wanted it to be flattering and moveable,” says Ally. The dress originally had long sleeves, but the bride customized to her own personal style by swapping the wrist-hugging fabric for delicate sheer flutter sleeves.
Ally carried something blue in her simple chic bouquet, and wore a borrowed veil, accentuating the flow and volume of the rest of her look. Tyson was a classic vision of groom-hood in a sleek black suit and tie, offset by a bright white boutonniere.
