A Mountain-Chic Multicultural Polynesian Wedding at Quiet Meadow Farm in Mapleton, Utah

After meeting on Tinder, Kourtney Finch (23 and a receptionist) bonded with Fonoivasa Mata'afa (22 and a solar panel engineer) over their love of laughter, family and dance. They married in the LDS Church and celebrated with a lively, multicultural reception for 200 at Quiet Meadow Farm in Mapleton, Utah, south of Provo. The rustic event centered on tropical vine motifs and shades of olive green, navy, cream and rose gold. Taking full advantage of the farm’s open space, Vasa and his family performed traditional Samoan dances in the grass—Kourtney got in on the fun too, dancing the celebratory Taualuga. “Not only did I wear a traditional dress, but I had baby oil rubbed all over me and red lipstick on cheeks,” Kourtney says. “It was fun to learn my choreography. It was really beautiful and such a fun experience.” Before the night was through, guests enjoyed a range of Hawaiian desserts, from guava cupcakes to mini pineapple upside-down cakes. Kourtney’s advice for other brides is simple: “Make it yours, even if what you like isn't trendy. And enjoy every second of the day—you deserve it after all those crazy months of planning.” —Carolyn Meers
