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.”

Kim and Pete’s Epic Park City Destination Wedding

Kim+Pete Wedding_725_01 crop

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!”

July Romance for Ben & Richelle

Ben & Richelle 098

As soon as I saw the proofs from Ben and Richelle’s wedding from this past July, I knew I had to share these on our blog. I absolutely love how soft and romantic their details were. With the help of Harvest Moon, I think that they were really able to pull together something dreamy and rustic at the same time.  The look is very cool and unique, and shows a very tasteful way to  bring both male and female energy to this event design.

I think we can allow the images tell this love story best. Thank you to Jacque Lynn Photography for sharing with us!

Another very cool aspect to this wedding was the food. Ben and Richelle wanted to meld their two cultures into their wedding menu, which featured a combination of Mexican inspired kosher dishes. As always, our Canyons Team was happy to get creative and design a spectacular menu with the couple.

Rustic Chic at Lookout Cabin

130921_Erin+Damon_0409

We had the pleasure of working with Park City locals, Erin and Damon, on their fall wedding at Lookout Cabin. Along with their 80 guests, they were treated to one of the most beautiful fall days all season. This wedding stands out in my mind as truly capturing the rustic chic style of a mountain wedding, with some Park City local flare.

The couple used some great DIY touches like their table numbers that were wood burned onto tree stumps, and then paired them with blue glass mason jars with softer roses and baby’s breath.  In keeping with the rustic theme, both the bride and bridesmaids wore cowboy boots with their dresses. Line dancing and s’mores around the fire pits finished off the evening. The juxtaposition of the rustic mountain touches with the softer more romantic colors and textures really define this trend.

Claire Marika Photography was onsite to capture this spectacular event.

We asked Erin after her wedding what her favorite part was. She told us, “To be honest the entire wedding was my favorite! From the ceremony to the dancing, the venue is so breath taking  everyone had such a good time. If I HAD to pick something I would say my most favorite part was the ride down in the bubble chair. Damon was holding little Daniel who was asleep. It was nice to finally get some time alone with my new husband and talk about the entire night!  The view at night is amazing especially with the full moon. It was a perfect time to decompress.

A Spring Gruv Wedding for Lauren & Stuart

snow & ceremony

 I do not think you could plan a more fun wedding than Lauren and Stuart’s, which took place this past March over our annual Spring Gruv weekend here at the Resort. They touched on every note– brilliant bright colors, fun patterns, great DJ, surprise bag piper for the groom, shot-ski and to top it all off, the couple joined in the annual Canyons spring ritual of Pond Skimming.  Mother Nature even blessed this couple with a blanket of fresh Utah Powder for their ceremony at Red Pine Lodge. This was nothing short of a perfect spring ski season wedding, and Amy Lashelle Photography was on site to capture the whole day of activities  (and weather).
