Winter Wonderland – Wedding at St. Regis Deer Valley

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Winter wedding are so special because the brides are different. A Winter bride, is much more forgiving than a Summer bride. A Winter bride knows that the weather could be a problem, and a Summer bride cries at the first sight of a cloud in the sky. This last Winter we had a number of outdoor ceremonies. They were beautiful and magical. This was one of them.

Media Society Dinner – A Sundance Film Festival Event

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

One of my favorite things about living is Park City, Utah is being able to experience the Sundance Film Festival. For over 30 years, Robert Redford and the Sundance Institute have been working to bring risk taking storytellers to the forefront. I have had a lot of fun at the Festival. You can read about past fun here, here and here. Here is an event we designed and executed for Media Society last year.

High Star Ranch – Stylish Ranch Dream Wedding

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

High Star Ranch is a great venue in Kamas, Utah. Just 15 minutes from Park City, High Star Ranch offers an amazing view of the Wasatch back and a rustic feel. We were so lucky that bride, Sara, and groom, Tomas choose this ranch as their wedding location. They were married by two close friends under a beautiful willow tree then they dined and dancing under the stars.

A Spring Celebration with a Touch of Winter

Some say it can’t be done but the team at Soirée Productions did it!  Although early March in Park City can be winter especially at the beautiful Stein Eriksen Lodge where skiers are in and out, our bride asked us to incorporate the seasons of winter and spring for her wedding day.  It was a gorgeous sunny day but a cool crisp was in the air.  Coats and wraps were definitely a must.  We turned the ballroom at Stein Eriksen Lodge into a scene out of a typical Park City day.  We combined 4 ft tree branches with gorgeous bright floral blooms indicating Spring is right around the corner.  For that touch of Winter, we included hanging icicles from each branch.  The espresso crush silk linens tied it all in.  Our designers also included small leaves on the escort card indicating the trees were beginning to sprout their leaves.  The bridesmaids each wore her favorite black dress and carried gorgeous bouquets of burgundy dahlias prepared by StellaPosy, a favorite flower you’ll find blooming in the Spring.

The ceremony was held at Park City Community Church with amazing views of the mountains.  This ceremony was truly one of my favorites.  The bride recorded a song for the groom which was played during Communion.  The entire congregation participated in the lighting of the Unity Candle.  Starting the light of life in the back of the church, each guest passed the flame to his/her candle then worked it’s way up to the wedding party ending with the maid of honor and best man who then lite the bride and grooms.  Finally, the bride and groom lite the memorial candles on the altar; those were placed to honor family members who had recently passed.  The candle lighting ended with the bride and groom’s unity candle signifying the beginning of one life together.  It was a beautiful touch to this very special day.  Mitch Burt of Zuma Photo captured every moment with his amazing photography and Remember When was there to capture it live allowing them to relive this beautiful day over and over again!  A big thank you to DJ Craig Chambers of Disc Connections for keeping the momentum and fun going strong all night long!  What a great party.

It was a treat to work with our client and provide her with the look she was hoping for.   Spring is a new season where everything has sign of new life.  What better time of year to celebrate wedding nuptials…after all, your wedding day is the beginning of a new life together!
