Blanding, Utah is a town about 90 minutes south of Moab. Heard of the Bears Ears? Blanding is the gateway town to that incredible area. This was my first wedding in Blanding, and I was excited because it felt like a local wedding. We small towns in rural Utah have to stick together (except when it comes to high school sports).
And then when the groom's mother told me the couples' names- I got even more excited. Heaven and Devon. And then I showed up to the beautiful barn venue, that sometimes acts as a drive-in theater(!!!!), and saw the marquee: "Match made in 'Heaven', said Devon". And the rest is history.
