Jupiter Bowl a Great Venue in Park City

Yesterday I took my family to Jupiter Bowl in Park City.  This wonderful new family attraction opened last week and offers bowling, great food, and lots of fun!  I am sure you’re wondering why I have chosen to blog about it on our wedding blog.  As I sat and waited my turn to bowl, I took note of the wonderful atmosphere Jupiter Bowl provides.  Park City residents have bowled in Salt Lake City and Heber City in the past and to have a bowling alley right in our own town is a welcome treat.  My kids were excited and anxious to see this new family center.  They couldn’t wait anymore and we took the day to bowl and have lunch at Jupiter Bowl.

Jupiter Bowl is beautifully decorated with drum chandeliers.  The Lift is there restaurant located inside.  You may dine in the restaurant or enjoy your meal as you bowl. If you prefer to enjoy great food and skip the game that option is there too as the restaurant is open to the public.  This food is not your typical bowling alley food.  And the bar, it exhibits a mosaic glass structure in the center and the service is exceptional (our waitress Amber was very attentive), and the big screens TV are everywhere; including 3 screens the length of 15 bowling lanes!  I looked at all of the technology and beautiful high end decor and decided I had to share this new fabulous venue with our wedding clientele.  If you are looking for a fun, energetic atmosphere that keeps your guests  mingling, dancing, drinking, and eating you might want to consider Jupiter Bowl.  They have a great private area for groups under 100 with 4 private lanes, a private bar area and lounge seating.  This atmosphere can’t be beat for the right event.  I realize some people want to keep their rehearsal dinner a tad more formal but for those of you looking to welcome your guests in a fun and casual environment that is inviting and unique we found it for you.  Don’t drive by without taking a look inside.  I think this is a great way to celebrate and welcome your guests to Park City.   Cheers to the owners of Jupiter Bowl for bringing us a great facility for everyone!  For more information or to book your event contact us. We would be happy to build an event that is just right for you.

Tip Tuesday | Holiday Weddings

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

flowers with crystalstulipbouquetorangetulipsChristianLouboutin glitter platform pum775Holidays are about family and friends.  Weddings are about family and friends.  So why not combine the two?  Many couples decide to schedule their wedding day around holidays because so many of their family members are already together.   Many venues are decorated for the holidays making it easy on you and your budget to provide the wedding day decor that is right for you.  In the Fall, you’ll find lots of leaves, straw, squash and sensational color.  In December you might find Christmas trees, holiday lights, holly and mistletoe.  All of this decor can be good and bad.  If you are decorating with traditional elements then you’ll be glad.  If you wish to stay away from the holiday decor, well then we highly recommend you check with your wedding venue first and ask them to include a clause in your contract allowing you to remove any decor that might not be appropriate for your wedding.  Most venues will agree to this clause provided your vendors return all decor to it’s original place without damage.  Keep in mind, most hotels, resorts, and other venues go to great lengths to make their space festive so chances are you’ll love it!    Be creative and incorporate a splash to your escort card table.  Use wreaths on the doors at your church or reception venue.  In the pictures below, we used chocolate linens because the bride wanted to incorporate red and chocolate.  We created an escort card tree with a simple wire gadget.  We used lots of holy leaves and berries and of course combined them with candlelight and red roses.  The Snow Park Lodge in Deer Valley was decorated with a holiday tree and wreath making it a simple winter wonderland.  Of course the weather couldn’t have been better…it snowed all day!  Perfect for a winter wedding.  As the guests waiting for the bride to make it down the aisle, they sipped on hot apple cider.  Another idea, one of my favorites, you might want to add an extra touch of holiday chic with these sparkling red glitter pumps by Christian Louboutin.  What a great excuse to wear these wonderful shoes!  Dress up your holiday wedding from head to toe and have fun!  After all, tis’ the season.

Fashion Friday|Judd Waddell Himself!|White Couture Designer Bridal & Tuxedo

Saturday, November 21st, 2009

IMG_0208IMG_9984IMG_9986IMG_9990IMG_9996Meet Judd Waddell.  A modest and yet fabulous designer.  I will tell you when I opened White Couture and was researching designers to bring to Utah, I knew Judd was a perfect fit.  He accommodates everyone.  Bringing us strapless gowns, A-lines, fabulous ballgowns, simple silhouettes, satin, taffeta, and lace…Judd has it all!  One of my favorite things about Judd Waddell is his modesty and willingness to go the extra mile.  He really doesn’t have to…come on, he’s Judd Waddell.  Judd cares about his clients as do we.  I can count on Judd to provide the customer service that White Couture believes in.  When we call him with a design modification, build up request, or simple question he is always willing to help us out and you won’t believe it, but he actually wants to know more about the customer.  Judd asks all the right questions.  Where is her wedding?  What is important to her? Rush? -No problem!  Only Judd speaks these words.  You can count on him 100% of the time just like we can.  When you wear a Judd Waddell gown you can be sure he knows your name!  Oh yeah…I forgot to tell you about his new collection.   Judd has introduced Mother of the Occasion–WOW!  As if his bridal collection wasn’t enough, now he brings a great look for the sophisticated mom.

Everything about Judd is fantastic.  Well, take a look for yourself…don’t forget to tell us what you think and leave your comment for a chance to win!
