Question_mark Question:

HI! My fiancee and i are getting married June 18th 2011 in richfield utah. I have always wanted a outside wedding but i dont think it will work out because we cant find a place to do it if you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know! Also if we have our wedding indoors it will be the same place as the reception, and everyone will have to find something to do for about a hour while they rearrage everything for the reception. since the groom and our families will be getting our pictures taken we wont be there and I feel bad leaving them and having them just have to figure out what to do for a hour, if you have any suggestions that would be awesome! Thank you!!


Hi there!
I've seen a lot of weddings where the ceremony and reception are at the same place, and the site often has a place for the guests to go for the cocktail party while they change the reception room. Is there an outdoor terrace for the cocktail party? A different room everyone can go to? Ask the site manager about using a different portion of the setting for your cocktail party...and if you can set up on their grounds, that gives you the outdoor wedding feel you wanted!
