Stephanie Leitch and Reid Owen Rouse, together with Stephanie’s son Hollis, announce their marriage on May 12, 2018 at This is the Place Heritage Park, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The bride wore her mother’s white lace and eyelet wedding dress, and the groom wore an 1800’s style ensemble. Stephanie’s grandmother, Margene Weir, age 87, played the wedding procession hymn on the piano.
Many wedding guests wore pioneer, western, and Victorian clothing and it was a beautiful sight to see guests strolling the grounds among the historical buildings and dancing to local Salt Lake bands Mañanero and Purr Bats, who performed in the Pine Valley Chapel at This is the Place Heritage Park.
Stephanie is the daughter of Steven and Deanna Leitch, West Jordan, Utah. Reid is the son of Janet Shaw and Craig Law of Logan, Utah, and Earl and Sharon Rouse of Wellsville, Utah.
