If you feel like you’ve seen this bride before, or that she looks familiar, that’s probably because you watch “Dancing With The Stars“. A professional dancer on the hit show, Lindsay Arnold had been dancing through life with Sam Cusick since high school.

Both natives of Utah, they wanted to have a traditional Mormon Wedding, followed by a ring ceremony and a dessert reception. Usually, I have at least a year to work with my couples, but this time I had less than 6 months.

I’m not gonna lie, I was a little nervous with the time constraint. Not only did I have to move quickly, but Lindsay was in Los Angeles for the bulk of the planning process. Most of my brides are busy, but not many are filming a television show 24/7!

Thankfully, 6 months is the typical planning time for a Mormon wedding. This meant I wouldn’t have to worry about venue and vendor availability. Finding the perfect venue was also fairly easy since we were in the Salt Lake City area where venue capacity is on the larger side. After looking at several gorgeous wedding venues, Lindsay and Sam selected Sleepy Ridge in Orem.

Keeping with the romantic wedding theme, the overall design included various shades of pink mixed with whites and soft greenery. The colors worked perfectly since it was a Summer wedding.

Hiring a wedding planner was a must for this celebrity bride since she was dancing through life in Los Angeles. We stayed connected to discuss unique wedding ideas like mixing in antique decor with the upscale wedding centerpieces, and adding plenty of sparkle to the luxury wedding invitations.

The day of the wedding was a whirlwind starting at the temple, then taking a quick break before going into the ring ceremony, lunch, and dessert reception. As the night came to a close, Lindsay and Sam’s wedding guests gave them a sparkler send off under the stars.
