If you are searching for Utah wedding venues with modern amenities, crisp architecture, and scenic mountain views, I personally recommend The Lodge at Blue Sky Auberge. The Lodge at Blue Sky is in fact a resort that is renowned among world travelers. But, it is also an unmistakably phenomenal wedding venue. The Western landscape of this Utah wedding venue is sprawling, providing expansive views in the distance.
What I love most about The Lodge at Blue Sky Auberge is the views from their wedding ceremony space. However, their grand staircase is also an ideal location for a first look or wedding day portraiture. The mountains in the backdrop fill the view for couples as they say I do. All while giving their guests a once-in-a-lifetime view. After my couples have said I do, I love to revisit their already decorated ceremony space to capture additional wedding day photos. This can easily be done while guests are enjoying cocktail hour. There is no denying that on the list of Utah wedding venues with a view, The Lodge at Blue Sky Auberge offers a remarkable backdrop.

In particular, the ceremony space inside Twenty & Creek is a phenomenal setting. You’ll make your way down the altar from their grand staircase before entering the white-washed space.

6) Wadley Farms
A blend of old-world charm and romantic elegance earns Wadley Farms a spot on my list of the top 6 Utah wedding venues for the best photography experience. Located at the base of Mount Timpanogos, Wadley Farms is a wedding venue with a grand castle, and two historical buildings. You’ll find their 23 sprawling acres of gardens, vineyards, and orchards evoke a wedding photography experience that is romantic and timeless.
One of the best times for hosting a wedding at Wadley Farms is around mid-summer. During this time the vineyards on the grounds of the venue come to life. The grapes bloom on the vines and they can be picked fresh to enjoy while capturing your wedding day portraiture. I especially love this idea for sunset wedding photos. But, if you want something a bit more grand out of your wedding photography experience at Wadley Farms, we can always stroll the lush grounds and use the castle as our backdrop.
