August is almost over so yet another busy summer comes to an end. I love August weddings for so many reasons and I can’t help but to show off one of my favorite August weddings held here a few years ago for Tracy & Nick. Tracy went above and beyond in putting love into the details and it showed! Her colors were purples and Black and we added chinese lanterns on everything (and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!). Check out the amazing Guitar Hero groom’s cake! And don’t even get me started on how much I loved her florals done by our ever so talented in house florist Stacie with La Belle Fleur. Seeing it all come together so perfectly is always such a treat for me and even better is watching the couple as they get to sit back and enjoy their beautiful special day!!
August is approaching fast and it makes me reflect on one of my favorite August weddings… the wedding of Maria & Mark. The couple was from out of state so alot of the planning was done via telephone and email but they each had such a good eye for design, I knew with each choice they made that it would turn out amazing! Their color scheme was pear green with touches of gold/yellows. Very refreshing! The thing I loved the most? The groom totally took care of his bride. He wanted to make sure everything was as stress free on her so ended up making alot of decisions on the wedding, helped her get ready, and as you can tell in these pictures, his love for her just shined on his face when he saw her walk down that isle towards him. It’s moments like this that I will never forget and truly makes me love my job!!
It has been a busy summer and as I have been reflecting on pretty weddings, I can’t help but to think of one of my favorite weddings of all time here at The Canterbury Place held here a few years ago. The bride and groom were not only drop dead gorgeous but everything came together so beautifully. Her color scheme was champagnes & Ivory. At first she was worried it was too boring (we reassured her it would be very elegant) but as these pictures will prove, it was anything but! It turned out to be one of the prettiest weddings and I can’t help but to show it off again even after all this time. Enjoy….
One of the most common questions I receive as a Utah wedding planner is what music to use for a ceremony? My first answer to this is to choose music that is special to you as a couple because this is what makes your day memorable. Music sets the tone and mood for your wedding ceremony and allows you to express your feelings for each other so don’t be afraid to be creative. But if narrowing down the selection is still posing a challenge, here are some suggestions for you:
When you are planning your wedding day, there are lots of things to consider as far as the timeline goes. Every Utah bride has a list of the things she wants to do, including the traditions like cutting the cake, the first dance, etc. Brides are often at a loss, however, as to when they should do what! So here are some recommendations based on our experience here at The Canterbury Place:
Invitations can be a stressful part of wedding planning. Coming up with the wording for the invitation can be especially hard. Here are a few tips from our experience:
Recently at The Canterbury Place, we’ve had some pretty fabulous florals that we’d like to share with you! Our premier vendor, Stacie, of La Belle Fleur truly out-does herself every time!
One of the first decisions you need to make when planning your Utah wedding reception is the food. Do you want something hearty or light? Do you want it to be buffet style or served?
