Thoughts of spring….

Friday, March 18th, 2011

The last few weeks at the Soirée Productions studio has been busy for us. Full of events and parties, both ones that we attend and of course, ones that we manage. In the midst of all the busy-ness, my focus has also been on the revamp, or rather, updating and reorganizing of the Soirée Productions website (which you should definitely check out if you haven’t ).  While going through our literally thousands of photos, I realized that some of them were stoking my anticipation for continuous sunshine.

Since this weekend is the Official  beginning of Spring, I thought I would share this feminine and fun glimpse into brighter days with you, Soirée style.

Some Notes: Of course, our great designers planned and designed this beautiful day, but there are a few people we should mentioned that also largely contributed to this perfect summer day: The Ceremony and Reception were both held at the beautiful Zermatt Resort. The fabulous photos were by Pepper Nix.The bride’s lovely gown was Vera Wang from Alta Moda Bridal Boutique. The gorgeous floral was provided by Orchid Dynasty. Catering was done by Zermatt Resort.

Summer Wedding Celebration

The team at Soirée Productions is so excited to tell you one of our favorite weddings will be featured in Inside Weddings Magazine.  This wedding had great detail and was fun from beginning to end.  The save the dates were vintage postcards of the bride and groom created by Nine Grain Design.  We created a logo that would be carried out throughout the entire wedding.  The welcome celebration kicked off the weekend with a BBQ at Silver Lake Lodge in Deer Valley, while the wedding nuptials were celebrated at Empire Canyon Lodge.  The evening began to look like it might rain on our parade but then suddenly the sun came out and shined upon all of the guests.  The bride and groom were married under the Chuppah and as they recessed down the aisle guests sprinkled lavendar to wish them well.  Following the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the deck.  Everyone danced the night away to music provided by the Salamander Band.  The room was filled with long rectangular tables for 8-16 guests while floral topped each table with a variety of arrangements.  We worked with Val Rasmussen of StellaPosy to finish each table top perfectly.  Each place setting highlighted square chargers and china we found at Diamond Rental.  Sarah Drown of Sparkle Photography captured the day and tells the story with her photographs.  Our team at White Couture helped the bridesmaids to select their perfect Vera Wang dress all in the purple and navy hues.  Each bridesmaid selected the style that worked best for her and with a variety of styles it was easy to do.  The evening concluded with a midnight snack for guests to enjoy on their ride home-the sliders and french fries were a big hit!  Everything about this wedding came together perfectly.  We chose to submit it to share nationally because our planners felt this wedding showed what you can do while still keeping your budget within reason.  Not a detail was left out and mom and dad were pleased with the budget!  Thank you for allowing Soirée Productions to assist you in planning the perfect celebration!

A religious wedding ceremony can be made up of so many spiritual and personal traditions.  Soirée Productions had the honor of assisting this beautiful couple with their wedding ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Park City.  The day was full of friends and family.  White flowers filled the church.  When the bride walked in with her beautiful smile she was beaming.   Her grandmother’s rosary was with her and wrapped around her bouquet.  The bride’s shoes were signed by each bridesmaid.  White Couture found the perfect bridesmaids dresses from the Vera Wang collection in a stone color that coordinated with the theme of this wonderful day.  Bring tradition into your wedding and make it special.  Thanks to Pepper Nix Photography for providing us with the images to share with you.  Enjoy!

Fashion Friday | New York Shopping Spree | White Couture Designer Bridal & Tuxedo

Friday, December 4th, 2009

The team at White Couture wants to share a little bit of our shopping experience in New York.  Each time we go to New York we get to meet with our designers and attend runway show after runway show.  It sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it?  Well it is fun but exhausting at the same time.  We run; literally run from show to show.  We stop for an occasional pretzel from our favorite street vendors and then run to the next visit.  We study the new “look” of the season and determine which of the styles best fit our clientele.  That’s where you come in!  We think of our clients throughout our trip.  We want to be sure to bring you the collections that you’re looking for.  This season we were amazed with the number of ballgowns and modified ballgowns we saw.  Guess what?  Ballgowns are back baby!  Of course I happen to know this makes many of you happy.  We all want to feel like Cinderella but now, well there’s an excuse.  Ballgowns are making the come back we were all hoping for.  Styles come and go with pick ups setting the trend a few years ago, a splash of color in a gown is still popular, and now…ballgowns.  Wait until you start shopping the newest collection.  You’ll love it.  And it isn’t just the designers you would expect to introduce ballgowns.  They are all over the place.

We were lucky enough to travel with our good friend and fabulous photographer Pepper Nix.  She documented much more then runway shows.  So maybe it isn’t so much of a stressful trip but I didn’t lie when I said an exhausting one.  We boarded our flight in Salt Lake City at midnight and landed at JFK at 6:10 am.  We headed straight to the hotel.  Our room wasn’t ready so we made ourselves at home in the bathroom located in the gorgeous lobby of our hotel.  If I remember correctly it had six sinks and Pepper used 3 of them to spread out her luggage and “stuff”.  We “freshened” up and then we were off to our first show at 8:00 am.  Then off to the next at 9:00 am.  We were off again at 10:00 am.  Well we finally made it to show number four and Pepper now had a clear understanding of Bridal Market in New York.  She begged us to stop and rest so we finally agreed to let her rest in the lobby of the Essex Hotel while we attended the show.  After an hour we came back to get Pepper and we found her laying down and sound asleep in the lobby!  LOL! It would have been a great photo but of course she has rigged her camera so only she knows how to operate it.  I hope the description creates the picture for you.  Pepper we had so much fun with you.  We can’t wait for the next market.  Thanks again for traveling with us and documenting the trip.  We hope you had fun.

We invite every current bride, future bride, and friends to stop by and see us at White Couture.  The entire new Fall 2010 collection we just viewed at Bridal Market will be available beginning January 1, 2010.  The designers have guaranteed every piece will be in stores no later then April 30th!  Call us if you’re looking for a particular gown.  We’ll be able to tell you when it will arrive or if you can’t wait, we’ll borrow it from the designer and have it shipped for a private fitting just for you.  See you soon.

Fashion Friday: New York Bridal Market

Friday, October 16th, 2009

NYC_New_York_Lower_Manhattan_and_Battery_Park_from_HelicopterNew York-Here we come!  Going to the Big Apple is one of the many things we look forward to each year at White Couture.  Twice per year our stylists have the opportunity to meet with designers and attend runway shows to determine the styles and collections we will be offering you–our customer!  The hussle of New York is great but imagine attending 20 runway shows in 36 hours.  That’s about what it takes to make sure we have looked at every new gown available.  We welcome your comments and suggestions.  Please let us know some of your favorite designers and we’ll be sure to check them out and talk about bringing them to Utah for you.  A this year’s market we’ll be visiting with new designers and those we already carry.  We’ll schedule trunk shows.  Do you know what a trunk show offers?  Trunk shows are an opportunity for the designer or a representative to travel with the newest collection and bring it to our studio for you to try on and enjoy.  There are many advantages to attending a trunk show but the top 3 reasons you should attend include:

1.  Special promotions and discounts are offered.
2.  Design modifications may be done with the designer in person.
3.  View and try-on every gown in the current collection.  Some may not be available at the studio on a regular basis.

Don’t let a trunk show pass you by.  Many trunk shows are offered throughout the year.  We invite you to attend those that interest you.

Be sure to follow our blog and leave a comment.  This month you could be the winner of a $100 Gift Certificate for your shopping pleasure!  Next week and during the month of October, Fashion Friday will bring you photos from the runway shows we attend, new designers available at White Couture, and designer interviews for a special post of  “meet the designers”.  Join us on Fashion Fridays for the latest trends.  Pepper Nix will be traveling with us at this year’s market to photograph gowns, designers and hot new trends!  Don’t miss these updates.
