Make a Statement with Mountain High Fashion

Easy-breezy gowns for the spirited, sun-kissed bride.

“The mountains are calling and I must go,” said John Muir in his most famous quote. Every year, the indisputable romance of mountain life lures engaged couples to Utah from all over the country. These wanderers and outdoor thrill-seekers celebrate our canyon breezes, grassy slopes and vast views.
It may seem challenging to compete with all this mountain majesty, but with the right head-to-toe look, a bride shines through. High-altitude style calls for lightweight gown fabrics, jaw-dropping jewels and messy-hair-don’t-care beauty. What better place to showcase this spirited attitude—luxe yet carefree—than Deer Valley Resort’s Empire Canyon Lodge and Cushing’s Cabin.
