This spring, Melissa learned how to ski. Special thanks to Deer Valley Resort, Black Tie Ski Rentals of Park City, and our friend Amy Tisovec!

I recently received the fun opportunity to experience the fabulous line of Claire Pettibone Bridal at the Trunk Show hosted by Gateway Bridal in Salt Lake.
I will admit, Claire Pettibone Bridal is in my little black book of favorites, so of course, I was ecstatic to be able to check out the collection in the lovely boutique.
One of my favorite things about Claire Pettibone’s Designs, is not only that they are absolute works of art, but the styles are intrinsic of history and quality.
This stems from the background of the designer herself-clearly you can tell she has a combined love for fashion and all things feminine. It comes together with a different and unique flavor in every dress.
Add to that true handmade quality, and you’ll be as in love as I still am…
Each dress is an experience of many hours of handmade work combined with the perfect combination of unique and ultra feminine.
Most of the fabrics are completely reminiscent of vintage days with silks and trims were so luxurious they transport you to another time and place.
Claire Pettibone hits the mark with every style-I was head over heels for each one, there is no doubt in my mind that a Bride would find her perfect dress in this designer’s work.
A great bridal boutique will always host Trunk Shows for designers they don’t always carry, and sometimes it simply is more of an extensive collection than they would normally have available.
Trunk Shows are the perfect time to fully experience a designer’s line. We recommend that you make your appointments as soon as you discover your favorite line of Bridal is going to be showcased.
This week, the ladies of Soiree Productions were honored with a visit from Val Rasmussen, Editor of Utah Bride and Groom Magazine! She brought along a friend to introduce to us, Trina Baghoomian, who is our new Account Executive.
As an important member of one of the most prevalent bridal magazines in Utah, Val’s visits are always exciting for us.
We ate the delish breakfast snacks they brought to us from Normandie Cafe in Salt Lake, and chatted about all the fun new things happening-both at the magazine, and for us at Soirée.
We discussed endless interesting topics, including trends, etiquette, tradition, design, and of course-Weddings!
We are looking forward to all the fun new things that Val will bring to brides in Utah through the magazine this year, and we are excited to begin working with Trina as 2012 continues to be an amazing year, full of great relationships, creativity and of course, adventure!

This week, we are excited to share with you that one of our favorite bridal boutiques, Gateway Bridal in Salt Lake will be hosting a trunk show for the incredibly charming bridal line of Claire Pettibone.
Claire Pettibone is absolutely one of my favorite bridal designers, and I find the dresses to be a fabulous selection for any bride-but more specifically for a Park City Bride.
They are elegant, super feminine and perfectly charming. I love how absolutely stunning the gowns look when combined with the beautifully ominous and gorgeous Park City mountains and resorts.
