Surrounded by family and friends, Charlie and Teisha tied the knot in a spectacular Wedding Ceremony in Park City Utah. They met through mutual friends, and since the beginning, they’ve experienced more than some would ever dream of. From Iowa State, on to Chicago, and yet this journey is just beginning.
Park City is known for the greatest snow on earth, but in the summer time, long after the snow has melted, the valleys atop the Wasatch Mountains are home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Town Lift Plaza, on the Bridge over Park Ave in scenic Park City, with serene wilderness as far as the eye can see. Birds chirped as the wind blew gently through the trees leaving a soft rustling sound in their wake. The occasional car honking from down below, followed by a congratulatory greeting as drivers passed by. Family and friends came from all over to witness the union of this amazing couple. The selfless, determined love that these two share is so apparent in the way they look at each other, and their interactions with friends and family. The newlywed couple spent time on the dance floor ringing in the night, with loved ones young and old. The live band sang covers from decades come and gone, along with some of our favorites from today.
I wish the new couple the very best, below are some images captured throughout the day.
Park City is a city in Summit County, Utah, United States. It is considered to be part of the Wasatch Back. The city is 32 miles (51 km) southeast of downtown Salt Lake City and 20 miles (32 km) from Salt Lake City’s east edge of Sugar House along Interstate 80. The population was 7,558 at the 2010 census. On average, the tourist population greatly exceeds the number of permanent residents.
After a population decline following the shutdown of the area’s mining industry, the city rebounded during the 1980s and 1990s through an expansion of its tourism business. The city currently brings in a yearly average of $529,800,000 to the Utah Economy as a tourist hot spot, $80,000,000 of which is attributed to the Sundance Film Festival. The city has two major ski resorts: Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort. Both ski resorts were the major locations for ski and snowboarding events at the 2002 Winter Olympics. Although they receive less snow and have a shorter ski season than do their counterparts in Salt Lake County, such as Snowbird resort, they are much easier to access.
Additionally the city is the main location of the United States’ largest independent film festival, the Sundance Film Festival, home of the United States Ski Team, training center for members of the Australian Freestyle Ski Team, the largest collection of factory outlet stores in northern Utah, the 2002 Olympic bobsled/skeleton/luge track at the Utah Olympic Park, and golf courses. Some scenes from 1994’s Dumb and Dumber were shot in the city. Outdoor-oriented businesses such as backcountry.com, Rossignol USA, and Skullcandy have their headquarters in Park City. The city has many retailers, clubs, bars, and restaurants, and has nearby reservoirs, hot springs, forests, and hiking and biking trails.
In the summertime many valley residents of the Wasatch Front visit the town to escape high temperatures. Park City is usually 20 °F (11 °C) cooler than Salt Lake City,[citaion needed] as it lies mostly above 7,000 feet (2,100 m) above sea level, while Salt Lake City is situated at an elevation of about 4,300 feet (1,300 m).
In 2008, Park City was named by Forbes Traveler Magazine among one of the 20 ‘prettiest towns’ in the United States. In 2011, the town was awarded a Gold-level Ride Center designation from the International Mountain Bicycling Association for its mountain bike trails, amenities and community.
