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.

“Savor’s” Great Design Inspiration

For the past few years Park City Restuarant Association has coordinated an evening in June called Savor the Summit. The City will close Main St. to traffic, and each restaurant that participates can set one giant long table down the center of Main St. — the longest dining room table ever! This past summer our dear friends at Talisker on Main allowed us to participate in the design of their space. We invited Harvest Moon Events to help with the design as well, and the concept we came up with was an en blanc dinner. The tables were dressed in white, and guests were asked to wear white that evening. Each course served for the meal featured only one color, so that it would really pop against the white setting. Florals were done in an “urban rooftop garden” theme. Menus were printed with a custom wax stamp.

While this is not technically a wedding, I do think that this design concept lends itself perfectly to the summer wedding season.

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).

Winter Wedding Magic for Lisa and Ryan

Our Canyons Resort team was able to kick off our winter wedding season this year with this incredible destination event at Red Pine Lodge for Lisa and Ryan. The couple had such an artistic approach to their day. Lisa worked with Kasey Aune at Harvest Moon to pull together all of the tiny details that really made this event sparkle.

Based in Washington state, the couple elected to have a ski destination wedding this winter and celebrate the new year with eighty of their closest friends and family.  They also created some really unique memories at their event, with the Best Man playing the guitar for the bride and groom during their first dance, and the Bride feeding the groom a spoonful of creme brule (instead of cake) to celebrate their marriage.  They decorated the gondola car for their send off. This was really such a great example of how you can break the rules of weddings, and just do what makes you as a couple happy. It is your wedding, it should be what you want!



benblood334Photographer Ben Blood, also out of Washington, made the trip to Park City, and captured all of the wonderful details of this wedding.











We asked Lisa what her favorite detail was for her wedding and she replied, “so many things were wonderful. The food really stands out in my mind. Most weddings have average food, but not ours. We didn’t get a chance to do a tasting so I had no idea what to expect. The food was outstanding, and plated beautifully, one of my favorites was the rocky mountain fondue.”  Guests were treated to a plated meal of Seared Chicken Breast with Lemon Bur Blanc and Parmesan Artichoke Risotto; Grilled Filet Mignon with Caremelized Shallot Demi Glace, and Buttermilk Yukon Gold Smashed Potatoes; our Signature Pomegranate Lemonade, and assorted pies and warm housemade apple crisp instead of tradtional wedding for dessert.

Lisa also had the following advice for future Canyons Brides. “Trust your planners. Bre was so amazing throughout the whole process. We also worked with Kasey Aune at Harvest Moon Events. They both worked so hard to make sure I got everything I wanted but still stayed in my budget. This was a destination wedding for us so I had to trust in my girls. They did an awesome job.”

Beth and Chad’s True Rustic Elegance

I have already posted a teaser of some wedding photos from Beth and Chad’s wedding a few weeks ago, because I was just so impressed with the look and feel of the event; and now have the professional images to share as well.  I had the pleasure of working with Beth and Chad on their wedding over Labor Day weekend, along with their planner, Utah Events by Design. I could not have been more impressed with how gorgeous this Lookout Cabin intimate wedding turned out. There were just so many details.  I think that this is a perfect example of how the little elegant details can really enhance a rustic setting.  Inspired by the gold band in the bride’s dress, the couple really enhanced everything– the chairs, the linens, the charger plates, even the silverware. They truly made the Lookout Cabin space their own!

Britt Chudleigh was kind enough to share these images with us and this week I am “thankful” for that! 

I had a chance to ask Beth and Chad what they loved most about their wedding at Lookout Cabin, and they said, “Our favorite thing was being surrounded by such beautiful nature at the secluded mountain top location. We didn’t use a single decoration at the wedding ceremony because we knew it would be gorgeous as is! I was overjoyed by a rainbow that appeared to us on top of the mountain (after some good luck sprinkles!), and an enormous full moon to admire on the chairlift ride down when we left the reception. The best wedding planner in the world couldn’t have planned those details! Plus we loved being in a rustic setting and still eating gourmet food.”

That may be my favorite response to that question yet! Thank you to Beth, Chad and their family. And, a huge thanks to Michelle Cousins from Utah Events by Design for creating this masterpiece.
