“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.

Brittany & Stephen’s Midsummer Night Dream

Mr&Mrs Champagne Flutes LR

It is snowing again today in Park City and I am hunkered down in my cozy office and wool sweater. And, while I am looking forward to hitting the slopes tomorrow, it does make me long for the warm, lush, green days of July again. So, to get us back in the summer spirit, we are sharing one of our great summer weddings.

Brittany and Stephen were married at Red Pine Lodge this past July. The couple were college sweethearts and spent many of their breaks at Stephen’s parents home here in Park City. They were excited to share the town with their guests and show them the best of what the mountains can offer. When we asked Brittany what her favorite thing about her wedding was, she said, “My favorite thing about my wedding was marrying my best friend….but about the Canyons was the gorgeous location and my guests loved riding the gondola!”

The couple chose green as a primary color for their event, and used soft feminine touches combined with a rustic woodsy feel.  They also added some playful touches like custom s’ mores for favors, to keep it fun and youthful, which matched  the couple. Truly, perfect for early July. Aria Photography was on hand to capture all the fabulous details.

As it turns out, Brittany may have been ahead of a trend using green. According to Pantone, Green is going to be the new hot color for 2013!

Fall Elegance for Danielle and Wade


I am so excited to share Danielle and Wade’s wedding. The couple wed on Sept. 22nd this year and shared the most spectacular fall mountain day. When I met this young couple last January, they knew they wanted a wedding ceremony at Red Pine in the fall to really showcase the best of the season for their mostly out of town guests.  The guests were then treated to a cocktail hour on our Red Tail Restaurant deck, looking up at our world class resort and passed southwestern canapes. And, then, what had to be one of the best parties I saw of the year with a reception in the Grand Ballroom.  They had so many gorgeous fall hilighting details. Danielle picked shades of deep purple, rust and gold with leaves, branches and soft white flowers to pull the fall theme together. The Ballroom was electric with perfect lighting from Five Star AV, specially selected linen and chiavaris, and the best dance band in Utah.  But, what I remember most from this wedding was how incredibly happy and totally in love the bride and groom seemed. This had to be one of my most favorite weddings to have been a part of.  I will let the excellent images from photographer, Jessica Smith Parker of Jessica’s Photography, tell the rest of this love story.

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.
