I’d like to give a huge congrats to one of the best and most beautiful big gay weddings in Utah. It is for a couple that I met here in DC, Brandon and Seth. Not only did they find a fabulous venue for a Utah gay wedding, but they turned it into a spectacular event for everyone. Surprisingly enough, certain cities in Utah are actually extremely gay friendly like Salt Lake City and have a thriving gay scene. That makes it much easier for Utah gay weddings to take place, you just have to make sure that you are able to keep the religious freaks out of it in case they organize a protest. (That’s why I always recommend using a large open space or a building where you cannot hear outside noise in case you get the Mormons’ protesting). Anyways, here are some of the photos and background on Brandon and Seth as well as information on planning a gay wedding in Utah.
Brandon and Seth met at a bar in Salt Lake City Utah. There was a definitely a connection and I
blame Facebook for this marriage because when Seth added Brandon to his friends list and wanted to connect on Facebook, Brandon jumped at the opening and asked him out. See, you should never be afraid to take the first step if someone shows an interest and you are interested as well. After dating for a while they ended up getting engaged and decided to finally tie the knot. Instead of getting married in Salt Lake City where they had met, the two chose to have their wedding at the Canyon’s Resort in Park City Utah.
Not only is the Canyon’s Resort in Park City a great venue for gay weddings in Utah because it is gay friendly, but you get stunning mountain views, activities for the adventurous like an 8,000 foot above sea level gondola ride and even a spa to help all of your guests, and yourself get pampered and relax. The menu looks ok for a mountain town, I wasn’t to impressed with looking at it, but I’m sure that their catering for a wedding is much better.
Overall I asked Brandon what he would recommend to gay couples who are planning gay weddings in Utah and he recommended this.
Pick a venue that you feel will represent you well. Research your service providers and make sure they come recommended. Most of all, take time to plan but also allow time to enjoy your special day!
If you’re planning your big gay wedding in Utah or anywhere else, please do your research so that everything works out before the wedding and you can take time to enjoy your wedding since it is your day with your partner.
