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!!
April is almost here and I am getting excited as I see all the tulips and flowers starting to bloom in our garden here at The Canterbury Events Center! I am getting so excited for the spring and summer months (wedding season is soon upon us!), so I thought it would be a perfect time for me to show off an amazing wedding we hosted here last April for an equally amazing couple Rob and Lisa! Like many couples these days, they lived out of town so most of the planning was done via email and phone conversations. This can sometimes add an extra challenge, but their wedding proves that with a great team, you can plan a gorgeous wedding and still have fun doing it! I think Lisa says it best… “I wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience we had at Canterbury Place. Planning a wedding from out of state – while fun – was pretty stressful, but you made it easy. Everything was absolutely beautiful and our friends said they have never been to a more fun and stunning wedding. Please tell everyone there thank you for making our day so special!” I had such so much FUN planning with Lisa (plus I have to mention how incredibly organized she was) so hearing her words is like icing on the cake! Speaking of cake, make sure to check out their incredible wedding cake made by Julie Hill with Layers (possibly one of my favorites of all time)….
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 Events Center:
Registries are no longer about china patterns and gravy boats. More and more couples are throwing expectations to the wind and are registering with retailers that reflect their lifestyle more than their Tupperware drawer. While it’s your big day, it’s important to consider your guests while putting together your gift registry. Here are some registry ideas and common registry etiquette to help you along the way.
One of the biggest decisions you will make on your wedding day is what dress to get! A dress can be very tricky, because all though there may be certain styles that you love, it may not necessarily be the most flattering for your body type. Here are some tips to consider while looking for you wedding dress.
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 Events Center, 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!
