Although they live in New York City, Utah has always had special meaning for the couple. Andrew Kennedy (34 and an entrepreneur) grew up skiing in Park City, Utah, which is also where he proposed to Kristin Koch (31 and a writer and editor) while skiing on Christmas Eve. "To be honest, I had always envisioned myself having a beach or vineyard wedding, where snowstorms aren't an issue," Kristin says of the mountainous location and fireside setting. "But we really wanted ours to be unique and unlike every other wedding we'd been to." Although they originally wanted to get married in Park City, ski season made it hard to find an available venue. They felt strongly that if they were going to host a destination wedding, it should be affordable for their guests. "We went to Sundance [Mountain Resort] and immediately fell in love," Kristin says. "It was rustic and gorgeous, and we could basically take it over for three days." As a former editor for The Knot, Kristin felt pressure to have everything perfect. Luckily, she had an entire weekend of events to bring her concepts to life. "I had something very specific in mind that was hard to vocalize, so my floral designer, planner and venue event manager were pivotal in helping me focus," Kristin says. "I can't tell you how many ideas I had—my Pinterest was out of control!"
