Winter Wedding Bliss – Wedding at Park City Mountain Resort

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

I grew up skiing at Park City Mountain Resort. My family loves to ski and so every winter we’d make the 10 – 12 hour drive from sunny Southern California to Park City. I will always love PCMR the best. Because she was my first. Here is great wedding from PCMR.

Catholic Wedding Celebration| Soirée Productions | Park City

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!

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.
