Our team had the pleasure of working with Kim and Pete, a fun and fantastic East Coast couple, over the summer. Like many of our destination couples, Kim and Pete started working with us about a year in advance to plan for their wedding. The two really triumphed with bringing pieces of their personal style, culture and personality to the rustic mountain setting.
I always ask our brides what advice they would give to our future Canyons Resort couples. I have to say without question that Kim’s advice was some of the best I have heard. She said, “Know your vision but also know your budget! There are so many ways to achieve a given look. It is very important to weigh the importance of every ribbon, gift, food and beverage item, and entertainment idea against each other. Time spent on achieving or acquiring something for the wedding is also really easy to lose sight of as well. Your wedding will be special no matter what, so make it work the best you can with the budget you have in place! “
This entirely outdoor event at Red Pine Lodge was able to capture a lot of that advice. Kim definitely focused on some details that were important to her by having custom-made cufflinks for Pete in the shape of peanuts. She also brought in some authenticity of the area and her sense of humor by creating wooden wedding invitations, table cards and bar menus. The table cards and bar menus had a ski theme – table cards were local Park City ski resorts and the bar menu used the ski trail difficulty signs (green circles, blue squares and black diamonds) to indicate the potential “potency” of each beverage type.

When we asked Kim what the most memorable part was about her Canyons wedding, she said “The party! Being with our family and closest friends was something I will never forget. Everyone that made an effort to be with us in Park City really helped make our day so special!”
