Dillon and Sara | Zion Mountain Wedding | Zion Canyon Bed & Breakfast | Springdale, Utah

FILED IN: Wedding

Oh my stars, I don’t know how I’m going to make it through writing this. Just thinking about writing this has had me in tears. Here goes nothing.

Dillon and Sara met in high school when Sara was visiting family in Lake Powell. They kissed on a house boat when they were 15 years old and 10 years later here we are. They actually chose the Zion Mountains because they were surrounded by red rocks when they met and they wanted to take their love back to its roots on this day of celebration.

They were separated for years by many miles–Sara’s family living in Michigan and Dilly’s in Utah. They were still children, and we all know how feelings of love in teenagers can be so easily dismissed by adults. They are living examples of “star-crossed lovers” but they overcame it all. Sara moved across the country after graduating high school and they’ve never looked back since.

Every moment of this wedding day was significant, from the “first look” the day before the wedding to the photos placed throughout to honor and recognize Dillon’s mom, who passed away when he was a small child, but whose spirit and love were present. There was more joy and excitement than I can even put into words and I can still feel it in my bones. {literal cheering as everyone entered during the ceremony was a first for me and I.AM.HERE.FOR.IT.}

Many of you know that Dustin and I also met in high school and I told our families when I was 15 years old that we would get married some day. I see so much of us in Dilly and Sara {though to be perfectly honest they are miles ahead of where we were emotionally at that age} and I can see a future where all of their wildest dreams come true.

Dillon and Sara,

Being with you on your wedding day meant the world to me. Being the person to capture the moments that you will remember and look back on for the rest of your lives has been my greatest honor. Thank you for the adventures and the encouragement and the appreciation. You guys are the real deal and I love you. Please remember that I will always advocate for you. I believe in the strength and power of your love and will always be here to remind you of that.
