Photo Shoot Fun with SLC/Park City Bride & Groom

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

There are a few slightly painful things about working in the wedding industry; long hours, ridiculous craft projects (thank you Pinterest), and you may as well kiss your weekends goodbye if you’re even thinking about stepping into this career! On the flip side of this, we get to interact with couples and their families on one of the most special days of their lives, meet unique people from all across the country, and get to run around behind-the-scenes at Park City’s most luxurious venues and so much more.  One of the most intriguing things about working in the wedding industry is the amazing group of creative and talented people it attracts; from designers and photographers to bakers and chefs.  We had the opportunity to work with the entire gamut of creativity yesterday at Studio Elevn while on-site assisting with the styling of Salt Lake City/Park City Bride & Groom Magazine’s dessert feature.  I feel so lucky to have been part of the crew that included Art Director Samantha Gardner, Editor Tessa Woolf, Foodie Photographer Barrett Doran and of course Soirée Productions Owner & lead Event Designer Kristin Spear.

At the Soirée Productions studio, we had spent the past few weeks sourcing from our favorite local vendors, Alpine Rentals and Diamond Rental, pulling a huge array of silverware, flatware, linen runners, and decorative lanterns.  In Salt Lake City, countless bakers where whipping up every dessert you can imagine, from my new favorite Kouign Amann, to caramel apples, mini key lime and blueberry pies, creamy custards, truffles, cakes and assortment of macaroons.  The result was a great color story played out in all four seasons- this was my first editorial photo shoot, and oh my, what an experience!  Keep an eye out for “Open Season” in SLC/PC Bride & Groom Magazine’s upcoming issue and also check out Studio Elevn and some more behind the scenes shots.

Washington School House Hotel

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012
If you are driving around Old Town, Park City, the chances you would miss the Washington School House are slim thanks to its remarkable limestone exterior; the chances you wouldn’t recognize it as a boutique lodging property however, are high. Recently featured in the June 2012 issue of Travel & Leisure magazine as a “charming getaway” this property is that and so much more. The Hotel is quintessential modern Park City in design and intimate and unique in character.
The hotel has been historically popular in its own rite with traditional décor giving a nod to its schoolhouse past, but has recently undergone a blowout renovation and restoration creating a totally chic, luxurious experience that somehow still remains simple and genuine. With only 12 rooms, the hotel sleeps 36 people in total; creating a great compromise between the giant lodges that seem to run rampant in Park City (think Montage Deer Valley or Waldorf Astoria) and all the smaller condos in the area. Think an intimate private home with all the features and services expected from a boutique luxury property.
Rumor has it Sundance celebs love the newly designed penthouse with direct elevator access and an amazing day-bed nook with some of the best view of downtown Park City. We recently stopped in for a little tour from General Manager, Jessica Davis, and ended up brainstorming ideas for intimate affairs at the property. Charming and unique, this place has tons of potential for small wedding, parties, rehearsal dinners and cocktail hours for the right couple or family. I could really go on and on about the Washington School House Hotel! Check out this fabulous Salt Lake Magazine feature taken at the hotel with a few principal dancers of Ballet West!

Welcome to the Washington School House Hotel!

A new fabulous new feature thanks to the renovation!
