Deer Valley Elegance:
locationSt. Regis Hotel - Deer Valley, Utah
detailsAutumn elegance at its finest. The local Aspen trees taking a star role in the overall theme. A signature guest signing table, welcoming guests to write a note to the couple. Outdoor ceremony overlooking the fall colors on the surrounding mountains, the altar and aisle loaded with jewel tone florals complimenting the bridesmaids garnet color dresses. A sophisticated cocktail hour prior to the ceremony, a lush box of hydrangeas holding copper staked escort cards, and a very hip fireplace lounge area at the reception tent entrance offering stacks of copper ribbon tied pashmina shawls for the ladies. Bringing the outdoors in, the tent held round black draped tables with alternating tall and short arrangements of lush florals, twig or cumquat filled containers, luminescent hand drawn table numbers, candles and gorgeous tableware with copper raw silk napkins. Big Band in tuxes, white dance floor, and a very special dessert tent made especially for this grand affair.

momentsSo many. Not only was this one of the grandest events, it was also so much fun. Hearing people rave about the colors, the florals, the tent, the band, the DESSERT tent..watching the absolutely gorgeous bride in her fairy tale of a dress, marrying "the guy of her dreams" as she put it, with a backdrop of the Utah mountains was really special. Listening to both of their parents give a heart felt toast to the couple from the dance floor. Watching the bride and groom at the unveiling of the dessert tent and all that was inside. Literally, like kids in a candy store!
thoughtsI will forever be so impressed with the kindness, maturity and good will of this sweet couple. Their foremost desire was for their guests (most of whom had traveled from out of state) to feel welcomed and have FUN. They went above and beyond with this by designing beautiful and detailed itineraries for the guests that went into very thoughtful and very fun gift bags. They did this by spending countless hours talking things through to the last detail, to making sure that they spent time with every one involved. Their gratitude for each other and everything and everyone was inspiring.
