Deer Valley, UT
Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley were married on December 23, 2007 at the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley, Utah. The winter wonderland wedding was held in a small tent filled with white candles and white flowers. A light snow fell outside.
During the ceremony, a guitarist and cellist played “December 23,” an original song Josh wrote for Katherine. The 80 guests included “Grey’s Anatomy” stars Kate Walsh and TR Knight.
The 30-minute ceremony was officiated by Unitarian minister, Tom Goldsmith, and included a performance by Brandon Whyde, who sang a tribute to Katherine’s brother and Josh’s sister, who both passed away several years earlier.
The couple recited personal vows before being pronounced husband and wife.
Following the ceremony, a reception was held in an adjoining tent filled with evergreen trees, twinkle lights and Christmas decorations.
The couple shared their first dance to “Heavenly Day” by Patti Griffin followed by the father-daughter dance to “Daughter” by Loudon Wainwright III.
Guests feasted on yuletide fare including butternut squash soup and roasted goose provided by local caterer Done To Your Taste.
Dessert was a three-tier white chocolate cake with lemon curd, courtesy of Ambrosia Wedding Cakes.
Guests boogied all night to a live set by The Stingers, and as they departed, were given baskets of Christmas cookies as favors.
The couple spent their wedding night at the Stein Eriksen Lodge and flew back to Los Angeles to celebrate Christmas.
They began their honeymoon on December 27 at the Esperanza Resort in Cabo San Lucas.
