Instagram influencer, Bailey, also known as Body Fit Balance, says I do to her partner Zach during a destination wedding in St. George, Utah. The two tied the knot surrounded by an intimate guest list of loved ones and close friends. They ended the night by jumping into the pool with their wedding attire on!
After meeting in kindergarten, these two love birds experienced all the highs and lows of a relationship. From dating in high school, to going to college, and then starting a business together. Bailey and Zach truly have been together for the long haul.
Bailey started her business – Body Fit Balance, a fitness influencer page, at a young age. She quickly became well known on social media, and shared many life events via her Instagram. When the two announced they had gotten married only after a month of being engaged, their followers were a bit shocked, but so supportive.
Once covid placed a halt in their original wedding plans, the two decided to have an intimate destination wedding two years later in Utah, their new home. On a perfect October day, the couple began their celebration with reading personal letters from one another. As a wedding videographer, this is one of my personal favorite moments of the wedding day to capture. Both Bailey and Zach were very emotional while exchanging such beautiful words. Bailey then shared a sentimental first look with her grandparents, and later father. You might want to grab a few tissues during that part of the wedding video! Also, check out this funny tik-tok of Bailey and her dad during their first look.
The day prior, I scouted a few locations to decipher the best first look spot for Bailey and Zach’s wedding day. After stumbling off road, un-intentionally, I came across this stunning overlook. Snow Canyon, located about 15 minutes outside of St. George, was the perfect first look location for their day. The views were absolutely breathtaking, and space was huge.
Photographer, Hailey Marie, and I set the scene with Zach looking out to the view, and Bailey slowly approaching him from the West. When Zach turned to see his bride for the first time, the emotion was raw, real, and truly beautiful.
Of course, Snow Canyon overlook was also the perfect location for bridal portraits and family photos. Later, the couple’s cute puppies joined them. Enjoy some funny commentary during that aspect of the wedding video.
Later in the afternoon, the couple headed to Bloomington Country Club, where their guest awaited their intimate ceremony. Bailey and Zach chose to have no bridal party, and instead their sisters walked down the aisle with their pups. When the bride walked down the aisle, again you could see the love and emotion Zach had as his eyes glazed over with tears. I know there is a large debate in the wedding world about having a first look or not, but personally I feel the first look does not take away from the actual moment of walking down the aisle.
After exchanging funny, sweet, intentional personal vows, the couple was announced husband and wife – again. The newlyweds then spent a few hours mingling with guests, enjoying appetizers, and basking in the beautiful weather.
When I say this is a reception to remember – I am not joking in the slightest bit! Once the great speeches were over, the party got quickly started. The bride struggled to dance feely in her gown, so she legit took a scissors to the tool, and starting cutting away. A packed dance floor was the case all night long. Eventually, when the night came to an end, the couple did a “send-off” by jumping into the pool! Not only did the bride and groom get fully soaked, but to their surprise, over 20 other guests jumped into the pool with them. Seriously, one of the most fun moments I have ever experienced at a wedding!!
Alright, the moment you have been waiting for. Check out Bailey and Zach’s insane destination wedding video in St. George, Utah. This video is emotional, wild, sentimental, and everything in between!
