Glamour and More! | White Couture | Park City

Friday, May 7th, 2010
Last week White Couture was invited to participate in a photo shoot with a few of Utah’s Wedding Vendors.  We packed up a few wedding gowns and our tuxedos and spent the day taking photos of this glamorous look!  This is just the beginning…We have three themes.  The first was an Old Hollywood theme.  Next week we’re going for a Romantic/Vintage theme.  Wait until you see those gowns and props.  And the third theme…we’re keeping it a surprise!  Be sure to check back often because we’ll have those photos to share too thanks to Heather Nan Photography.  Every vendor participating is talented and spending time together to share their work and experience with you.  We hope you enjoy the final product which will launch in June.  Don’t worry, you’ll be invited!  For now, here’s a peak at Old Hollywood.

Hindu Cultural Wedding Celebration| Soirée Productions | Park City

Including family and cultural traditions in your wedding celebration is not only meaningful but it certainly makes every aspect of your wedding personal!  There are so many traditions a bride and groom can incorporate.  We always browse the internet to make sure we understand the customs and traditions too!  Many times couples raised in the United States are not familiar with their own traditions so it is important that we research and understand the meaning behind everything.  The internet is an amazing world of it’s own isn’t it?

Recently our team of Soirèe Productions Wedding Planners coordinated and designed a Hindu Wedding in the mountains.  Our couple is from New York but share a love for skiing and Park City so what better to place to tie the knot then the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley on Valentine’s Day.  Our designers worked together with Val Rasmussen at StellaPosy to incorporate so many aspects from the bride’s culture.  In a two-hour long ceremony the bride and groom were married under a Mandap (similar to a Chuppah or Altar).  The ceremony was so beautiful and meaningful the time slipped by.  The guests danced all night to traditional Indian music provided by one of our favorite DJ’s Craig Chambers of Disc-Connection who also included modern American tunes at the brides’ request.  The decor was sensational!  Soirèe Productions’ unique linen inventory and beautiful chargers completed the table decor.  A big thank you to Diamond Rental of Salt Lake City who polished up and painted gold Chavari chairs to make them brand new for our client.  We borrowed pieces of an outdoor iron gazebo available at Diamond Rental and added our own fabric, 2×4’s and Val’s expertise and created what our Hindu Priest referred to as “the most beautiful Mandap he has ever seen.”  Finding an existing Mandap in Utah is no easy task so we built our own!  The lighting around the room provided a glow in the wedding colors and the custom GOBO with the bride and groom’s monogram was a touch that should never be overlooked.  I can’t stress enough how important lighting is to your event!  It was indeed our pleasure to put our creativity to work and bring the bride’s family traditions to Park City!  Thanks to Nick Sokoloff Photography we have beautiful images to share with you.  Our next blog post will include video footage by Remember When Films of this memorable event.

Tip Tuesday | Winter Wedding Ceremony | Silver Lake Lodge

Winter is an incredible time in Park City, Utah and the Deer Valley areas.  Such an appropriate place to have a wedding ceremony if you are an avid skier.  Our client planned a beautiful wedding in the mountains and the theme the entire weekend was skiing and snowboarding.  She a skier and he a snowboarder made Park City and Deer Valley the appropriate place.  Guests traveled from all over the United States to attend the wedding, some spending up to one week in the area.  The ceremony took place with great views of the beautiful mountains of Deer Valley in the Bald Mountain room of Silver Lake Lodge.  We set up for 250 guests.  The chuppah was rustic and made of aspen tree branches and beautiful white floral.  Val of StellaPosy and Soiree teamed up to bring the outdoor in.  With great lighting, lots of candlelight, and white floral the fresh snow capped mountains glistened outside.  Did I mention the bride and groom arrived to their wedding ceremony via horse and sleigh?  So appropriate for the venue.  The only other option was to ski in…I’m sure if we had suggested it, they both would have considered it.  Thanks Sarah and Michael for making us a part of this wonderful day.

Tip Tuesday | Holiday Weddings

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

flowers with crystalstulipbouquetorangetulipsChristianLouboutin glitter platform pum775Holidays are about family and friends.  Weddings are about family and friends.  So why not combine the two?  Many couples decide to schedule their wedding day around holidays because so many of their family members are already together.   Many venues are decorated for the holidays making it easy on you and your budget to provide the wedding day decor that is right for you.  In the Fall, you’ll find lots of leaves, straw, squash and sensational color.  In December you might find Christmas trees, holiday lights, holly and mistletoe.  All of this decor can be good and bad.  If you are decorating with traditional elements then you’ll be glad.  If you wish to stay away from the holiday decor, well then we highly recommend you check with your wedding venue first and ask them to include a clause in your contract allowing you to remove any decor that might not be appropriate for your wedding.  Most venues will agree to this clause provided your vendors return all decor to it’s original place without damage.  Keep in mind, most hotels, resorts, and other venues go to great lengths to make their space festive so chances are you’ll love it!    Be creative and incorporate a splash to your escort card table.  Use wreaths on the doors at your church or reception venue.  In the pictures below, we used chocolate linens because the bride wanted to incorporate red and chocolate.  We created an escort card tree with a simple wire gadget.  We used lots of holy leaves and berries and of course combined them with candlelight and red roses.  The Snow Park Lodge in Deer Valley was decorated with a holiday tree and wreath making it a simple winter wonderland.  Of course the weather couldn’t have been better…it snowed all day!  Perfect for a winter wedding.  As the guests waiting for the bride to make it down the aisle, they sipped on hot apple cider.  Another idea, one of my favorites, you might want to add an extra touch of holiday chic with these sparkling red glitter pumps by Christian Louboutin.  What a great excuse to wear these wonderful shoes!  Dress up your holiday wedding from head to toe and have fun!  After all, tis’ the season.

Tip Tuesday: Napa Valley Wedding

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

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. 912-1207b.jpg

We are so lucky to have been a part of such a wonderful celebration!
