Julia and Justin McCain celebrated becoming husband and wife over a three-day weekend destination wedding in Sun Valley, complete with whitewater rafting, endless festivities, and copious time spent with family and friends.
“Because it was a destination wedding, we had events for three days. This was so special because it gave us the opportunity to spend quality time with our guests,” the couple said.
Originally from Meadville, Penn., Julia met Justin at the wedding of their two best friends. Although sparks flew, it wasn’t until Julia’s best friend’s 30th birthday in Colorado that they decided to try long distance. Their relationship grew and Julia headed out to San Diego to live with Justin. Two years later, he proposed in their apartment that he had filled with gorgeous blooms.
When planning their sophisticated rustic-style nuptials, Julia and Justin opted for traditional with touches of their own personal style. The groom and groomsmen looked dapper in navy suits. The bridesmaids wore blush pink gowns complementing the white florals. Julia chose a timeless lace dress and carried an assortment of white flowers with deep green accents. Guests wore sunglasses personalized with their wedding hashtag.
The couple and guests enjoyed lovely summer weather, ideal for an outdoor celebration. The al fresco event was dotted with pops of fuchsias, reds, and pinks, against neutral backdrops, highlighting the surroundings. After dinner, the guests took to the tent where dancing awaited. Julia and Justin shared their first dance to Brett Eldredge’s “What You Mean to Me,” and danced the night away.
