THEIR WEDDING November 2, 2011, at the Salt Lake City LDS Temple and Ogden Marriot

THE SHOT “Brittnie’s grandfather owned the Coca-Cola bottling company in Ogden,” explains Magnifique’s Terra Cooper. “He passed away three years ago, and she wanted to honor him somehow. I suggested we take some shots in front of an old Coke advertisement painted on the side of a building.”

THE SHOT “Mikey and Brady love to camp, so we went with a camping theme for their fall engagements,” explains photographer Alix Loosle. The trio set off into the woods in Provo Canyon armed with wool blankets, a bundle of firewood, a guitar, and a hammock Mikey purchased while on vacation in Brazil.

THEIR WEDDING June 1, 2011, at the Salt Lake City LDS Temple and Market Street Grill in Cottonwood

He even made matching T-shirts for the occasion! We included Big League Chew bubblegum and Cracker Jacks for props.”
