Soirée Productions spent almost 18 months designing and coordinating a wonderful wedding celebration for a Salt Lake City couple. This destination wedding took us out of state to Napa Valley, California. Our team of planners coordinated 4 events celebrating the bride and groom’s nuptials throughout the weekend. The festivities began on Friday night with a rehearsal dinner at V.Sattui Winery in the barrel room for 75 guests. The guest list was made up of the wedding party and family members. Immediately following, the bride and groom welcomed all of their guests (approximately 200 guests traveled to Napa for the weekend) at a festive cocktail party complete with a steel drum band we found in San Francisco. On Saturday the day began with hair and makeup for the women in the wedding party. Paula Dahlberg of Kenji Salon in Salt Lake City joined us as a part of our traveling team. Pepper Nix was there to capture great photos throughout the weekend and David Perry also traveled from Salt Lake to create the unbelievable footage for the production of a DVD documenting the entire weekend. The bride and bridesmaids wore some of our favorite designs from White Couture in Park City while the men looked their best in our tuxedos. Dressed in their formal attire, the ceremony was spiritual with readings, prayers and great music by the Cowling Band quartet out of Los Angeles. Immediately following the ceremony, guests walked through the vineyard and enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and an incredible seafood station then had the pleasure of dining on a 4 course meal prepared by Elaine Bell Catering and her team. Perfect Endings created a masterpiece of a wedding cake and the 10 pc Cowling Band continued into the evening with dancing and entertainment. The floral was provided by Pat Friday Flowers and the entire theme and design was carried out by the amazing designers at Soirée Productions who even included a cigar bar near the Bocce Court. We had so much fun planning this wonderful weekend. The celebration ended with a Farewell Brunch at the Villagio Hotel in Yountville. This incredible weekend was a celebration we won’t forget and I am sure the bride and groom will cherish their memories for a lifetime. We were so honored to have been selected as their wedding planners and event designers-this is our second event for our client (we planned big sisters wedding in 2004). Thank you to all of our wonderful vendors who were willing to travel with us and provide their talents–We can’t do it without our wonderful team of professionals!

A perfect weekend in St. Helena, California. Soiree had the pleasure of working with a Utah client and planning their wonderful destination wedding in the Napa Valley. Everything about this wedding was amazing. The wedding featured an art deco theme from begging to end. The floral by Pat Friday Flowers, the band from West Coast Music, the culinary team of Elain Bell Catering and the fine wine from V. Sattui were all a part of this wonderful celebration. The setting was private and truly one of a kind. When the bride and groom were pronounced husband and wife and they kissed….the glorious fountain exploded in the background to amaze all of the guests with the beauty and experience.
We are so lucky to have been a part of such a wonderful celebration!
