Spectacular Spring for Shannon and Thiago

067L-0726

It is spring again in the mountains, and what better way to celebrate than to share an awesome wedding from June 2013. Our Canyons team worked with a fantastic couple from Chicago for this destination wedding. And, this was a real destination for many guests especially those one the groom’s side coming all way from Brazil. Those from the windy city and abroad were treated to a spectacular sunny day in Park City. Logan Walker from Pepper Nix Photography was onsite to capture all the spring magic.

We asked Shannon if she had any advice for future Red Pine brides. She said, “It’s so easy to get caught up with all the planning, budgeting, and coordinating…on the day of your wedding, what will happen will happen.  Don’t get upset over things, they’re just things… Just enjoy every minute of it with your new husband.”

Winter Ski Season Wedding Magic

2014-01-28_0049

Winter destination weddings tend to be some of my most memorable over the year. I love when couples are able to combine their personal passion for snowboarding and their passion for each other. What better way to share your love of the mountains with your closest friends and family than invite them to an incredible ski resort like Canyons.  Erin and Pete exchanged vows at Red Pine Lodge this past December.  Kate Benson Photography was on hand to capture this early winter season event.

We had an interview with Erin afterwards and she had some really fantastic remarks about her experience planning a winter destiantion wedding:

What advice do you have for future brides who are planning a winter wedding?

“Enjoy every second of it – from the engagement, to the planning, to the day of.  Even all the stressful parts.  It is the only time in your life when everyone you know and love will all be in the same room just for you.  It’s over before you know it.”

 What was your most memorable part of the wedding?

“Everything!  But, coming from Chicago, we had quite a few skeptics in the crowd about our choice to get married half way across the country, in the winter, on a mountain.  I think the most memorable part for me was talking with them at the happy hour when they had amazed looks on their faces saying ‘Ok, I get it now.  This is spectacular’.”

What was your favorite detail that you planned? 

“I think my favorite detail was all of the “nerdy” nods to my husband. Inevitably, as soon as he put the engagement ring on my finger all the attention was on me during the wedding planning so I made sure I had a few surprises for him the day of.  Our entrance song was the Indiana Jones theme song.  The grooms cake was a delorean made out of rice krispies and when we were cutting the cake the DJ played “The Power of Love”.  Megaman was/is his favorite video game so I had cuff links made with an image of megaman for him.  But, I also had his 10 favorite boss battles made into cuff links for the men in our bridal party.  They were all so surprised and excited.  A few of them have actually worn them again too!  But my absolute favorite detail had to be when we snowboarded down a run after the ceremony and our friends and family were cheering us on from the bottom.  Snowboarding in a wedding dress with everyone looking on literally was the most terrifying event in my life – but totally worth it.”

Erin told us later that she fell so in love with the mountains, that they have actually relocated to a ski town!

A Fresh Perspective from Bryanne & Ben

The Canyons Romance team and I had the wonderful chance to work with Bryanne and Ben on their wedding this summer– a truly cool couple from Omaha. Their destination wedding was fun and gorgeous. When I asked Ben what he thought about his experience here at Canyons, he said, “Most of our guests had never been to Park City or the Canyons before. It was incredible to have so many of our closest friends and family members in such a beautiful setting. We got so many compliments on how beautiful and unique the location was and had many people express that it was the best wedding and reception they’ve ever attended. We had so much fun…wish that we could relive that night over and over again!”

One of the things I remember most from their wedding day was the little surprise from mother nature– passing rain shower in the afternoon. My parents were married on a rainy day 40 YEARS AGO, so I sincerely believe that rain is a sign of good luck on your wedding day. These showers came through right at the time scheduled for their first look pictures.  Luckily, they had Mitch Burt from Zuma Photo, and what could have been a tough moment, thanks to his creativity, came out as a truly cool and fresh look for wedding photos at Canyons.  And, I would say, looking through all of Bryanne and Ben’s shots, the creativity came through all day long. As is the case with most Utah rain storms, it passed quickly and Bryanne and Ben got a classic sunny summer evening happy ending.

I absolutely am in love with some of these unique shots of Canyons and Red Pine.  Thank you to our preferred vendor Zuma Photo for their artistic perspective, postivity, continued partnership and professionalism.

Cristina and Scott’s Sunny Summer Details

Cristina and Scott shared their vows on a sunny summer day in August at Red pine Lodge this summer. Bright colors of yellows and teal really enhanced the fun summer evening. This wedding is also a great example of how a few small details can really accent your wedding and bring your personality to the venue. Some examples here are the use of the frames with a small wildflower or aspen leaf on each escort card (to indicate the meal selection), the tree stump table numbers, the colorful chinese lanterns and wildflowers set in small metal pails. Harvest Moon Events, lead by Kasey Aune, designed the event with whimsical summer rustic elegance and James Erick Photography captured the day.

Venue:  Red Pine Lodge, Canyons Resort

Catering: Red Pine Lodge, Canyons Resort

Menu: Guests enjoyed homemade sausage stuffed mushrooms with a smoked tomato sauce, beef tenderloin skewers with rosemary and balsamic and a display of Rocky Mountain Fondue- the perfect fit at a ski resort for the cocktail hour. A plated dinner followed with choice of Chicken, Salmon or Homemade Ravioli.
