Vintage Garden Wedding Inspiration in Logan, Utah

A whimsy-loving couple say “I Do” in a classically vintage garden wedding at a historic mansion in Northern Utah.

Collette met Isaac while working at a college-town pizza shop in Logan, Utah. After a year and a half of dating, Isaac suggested the pair take a hike to their favorite lookout point, a quaint vacant historic home on the mountain with a view of Cache Valley. Since the couple both had COVID-19 at the time, Collette had no expectations for the evening, but just as the sun was setting over the valley, she turned to find Isaac on one knee. 

A Vintage Garden Wedding For the Ages 

Isaac and Collette tied the knot in a rainy August ceremony at the Riter Mansion in Logan, in a perfectly fairytale-worthy garden ceremony with a vintage disco afterparty. 

“The overall look of [the mansion] matched my vision perfectly,” Collette says. “I loved the gorgeous ballroom space for the reception,
and was immediately drew to the garden area for our ceremony.”

The bridal party invited the garden spirit in a dazzling array of green and blue hues, with each bridesmaid carrying a colorful spray of florals in peach, blue and rose. 

But the true vintage gold arrived in the bride’s attire: all entirely handmade.

Collette crafted her own custom wedding ensemble, starting with a thrifted off-the-shoulder slip gown which she treated with a modernized neckline and a chic tea-length hem for easy dancing. Collette also sewed a flowing satin overskirt, transforming her old-school party dress into an elegant fashion moment for her “I Dos.” Accented by classic pearl details and a dreamy, wildflower-embroidered veil, this bride was ready for forever. 

The couple sealed the deal in a misty and intimate ceremony officiated by Colette’s godmother, in which the clouds parted just in time for the bride’s walk down the aisle. 

Disco-Inspired Wedding Reception

Collette and Isaac celebrated their union with an old-school disco party, complete with customized mirror ball art, a taco bar dinner, and a lineup of home-brewed beers crafted by the bride’s family. Midway through the night, the couple cut into a cake decorated to match Collette’s whimsical veil, revealing a lemon and raspberry-flavored dessert. 

Colette shed her more ornate layers and danced the night away in her customized slip, with a first dance to “Something Stupid” by Frank Sinatra, and a whole night of classic party anthems produced by DJ YLLO.
