Urrutia & Storey
A Sun Valley Wedding Story

Teresa Siobhan Urrutia
&
Hunter Harry Storey

September 5, 2015 | The Valley Club

 

These middle school sweethearts have strong roots in Sun Valley–it was where they met (in the 6th grade), grew up, fell in love, and eventually tied the knot. Their wedding was on a sunny September day at The Valley Club, with beautiful lemon, green and gray accents and their friends and family all around. Read a Q&A with the bride and groom below, and be sure to check out their vendor list at the bottom of the article.

WHERE WAS YOUR HONEYMOON?

We spent the following weekend in our camper (which was a wedding gift), and we are planning to take a honeymoon in a few months. 

WHAT MADE YOUR WEDDING SO SPECIAL?

It truly was a perfect day with our friends and family! We had family and friends from all over, all in one place, at the same time.

WHAT WAS THE BRIDE’S FAVORITE MOMENT? 

Our first dance…the lessons paid off!

THE GROOM’S? 

When my bride sang to me!

D.I.Y PROJECTS? GUEST FAVORS? 

Our escort cards doubled as guest favors. We painted little pots and planted succulents in each one. The succulents were originally taken from the bride’s grandmother's garden and carefully tended for months until they had multiplied enough to plant one for each guest.
