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.

The Oscars Were Good To the Sundance Film Festival

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

The Oscars are right around the corner. In fact, the awards show is airing live on ABC this Sunday, February 24, at 5 p.m. MST. This year is particularity exciting because 5 films I saw at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival are nominated.

I am especially excited for Beasts of the Southern Wild. This was a film I saw on a whim, not even knowing what it was about. But I had tickets to see the Grand Jury Prize Dramatic Winner and now I’m in love. I’m in love with the protagist, Hushpuppy, played by Quvenzhané Wallis. She is delightful, powerful and enchanting. It is terribly wonderful to see this film nominated for Best Picture and Quvenzhané nominated for Best Actress in Leading Role.

Also, I saw 4 of the 5 films nominated for Best Documentary:
5 Broken Cameras,
The Invisible War,
How to Survive a Plage, and
Searching for Sugar Man

I am hoping that Searching for Sugarman will win but 5 Broken Cameras was a fabulous film and will provide stiff competetion.

I know everyone else will be paying attention mostly to the gowns and celebrities but I truly love movies and I am so proud that films from the Festival had such a great representation.

Tip Tuesday | Sundance Winter Wedding | Soirèe Productions

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010



One of Soirée Productions favorite winter weddings was an intimate affair at Sundance. With just 60 people the wedding ceremony was held in the Wasatch Room lit only by candlelight. A cocktail reception and dinner followed in the Screening Room. This wedding had many beautiful and personal touches. A signature Apple Martini cocktail greeted guests at they arrived for the reception. Soirée found beautiful specialty linens and matching chair pads that worked perfectly with the silver chivari chairs. Shining silver charges glistened in the room topped with a personalized menu and brownie favors decorated as a bride and groom. The inspiration was bare winter branches with orchids and we carried that theme from the centerpieces to the cake to the dance floor. A custom gobo of bare branches illuminated the floor as guests dance into the night.  This was another wonderful event Soirée Productions was very proud to have been involved in.



































































Tip Tuesday: Outdoor Wedding Splendor

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

phpThumbCA92U1VXmg_5198Utah’s Resorts are top tier for skiing but what about weddings? Utah’s resorts also have great outdoor space for weddings. Outdoor ceremonies are a popular choice in the summer and fall months. Your décor can be minimal or elaborate, colorful or monotone. Check the weather leading up to your wedding and make sure you have a back up plan in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. Most venues will automatically book a back up indoor space for your wedding but be sure and ask when you are scouting venues. You don’t want to be stuck having to rent a tent at the last minute. Some couples, even provide pashminas for their guests in case of cold weather or parasols for a hot and sunny day.  Regardless of your venue, be sure to run through a checklist of questions to ask and select the one that is right for you.  Soiree Productions is happy to provide you with our complimentary templates that include a venue checklist.  Give us a call at (435) 655-2943 and request your copy or stop by our studio to view wonderful portfolios for each of these wonderful venues.  Make it a great day and worry free!RJW_5170IMG_1747empire montoge 2293400200110
