Glamorous Salt Lake City Wedding

Kristi and David’s wedding was a dream come true! Along with two little boys, the couple celebrated their union at Salt Lake City’s La Caille, and their vision of a glamorous, classic, and fun celebration came to life with the assistance of Sax-Romey Floral and Event Design. With a neutral color palette of champagne, white, gold, and blush, their design centered on greenery garlands, candles, and a variety of elegant blooms, including quicksand roses, hydrangea, cafe au lait dahlias, and sahara roses. The neutral flowers and the natural beauty of the venue’s lush trees made for a stunning combination! Fashion was an integral part of the day, and Kristi is resplendent in a Mori Lee gown from Fantasy Bridal Utah, while her maids donned sequin Adrianna Papell frocks. David’s custom H.M. Cole tuxedo capped off the glamorous bridal party attire. We’re head over heels for every moment captured by Pepper Nix!

Gorgeous Gold Registry Items from Lenox

Create the perfect entertaining ambiance with gorgeous gold registry items from Lenox!

Lenox china, stemware, and flatware has long been the gold standard in entertaining (my own registry pattern is Federal Platinum), and this season’s must-haves are perfectly on-trend with an assortment of glittering gold dinnerware! As each couple has its own personality, so too do these new patterns, and each of my favorite picks is perfect for the stylish and classic home.

So which of the patterns are my top picks (ahem) 18-years past my own registry? The unique hexagonal design of the Prismatic Gold pattern is bold and vivid, while the delicate bone china and opulent burnished gold details maintain Lenox’s elegant craftsmanship. And even better? This 24K gold dinnerware is dishwasher safe!

Lenox Gold China

And I’m completely smitten with the elegant ironstone Marchesa Shades collection. Designed with the same beautiful and thoughtful craftsmanship of a Marchesa gown, the Marchesa Shades collection has soft, scalloped shapes and comes in white, gray, or blue. Its gold trim is microwave-safe, and perfect for any occasion! When paired with Imperial Caviar flatware, this stylish table sets the gold standard in fashionable dining. Who doesn’t love goldware?

Selecting registry items is one of the most fun and special experiences of being engaged, so be sure to enjoy the process and register for items that will stand the test of time, just like your marriage!

Key West Wedding at Hemingway Home

Chelsea and Ric’s wedding is quintessentially Key West. The couple selected the Florida Keys as their destination wedding locale so that their guests could experience the lively nightlife and quirky island vibe of the place they spent their first vacation together. The iconic Ernest Hemingway Home housed both ceremony and reception, which was inspired by the glamour of the Hemingway era in Paris, mixed with the southern charm of Key West. Their ceremony was officiated by a close friend and featured several favorite Hemingway readings. Ric owns a yacht sales brokerage and is often referred to affectionately as “Captain”, so Chelsea’s wedding gift to her husband was matching antique brass compasses inscribed by Laura Hooper Calligraphy with “Captain” and “Mrs.” Continuing the special theme, Ric’s wedding band was engraved with the geographical coordinates for Key West. Catered Affairs of Key West created an island-inspired menu with a seafood raw bar and chimichurri steak, and—naturally—dessert was pie from Key West Key Lime Pie Company. The natural beauty of the Hemingway home was accented by centerpieces of dark, wild greenery from Love in Bloom Florist with small pops of color. Each moment is beautifully captured by Nicole Berrett Photography!

    Romantic Door County Wedding

    Rachel and Charlie’s Wisconsin wedding is the epitome of relaxed elegance. The only wedding ever to be held at Door County’s historical Horseshoe Bay Farms did not disappoint, as the couple worked with Carrie of Door County Event Planners to perfectly blend the grand property’s charming setting with a show-stopping reception tent for a magical result. After a waterside ceremony, guests were greeted with champagne-filled glasses for their short walk to the farm, and Rachel and Charlie embraced each guest as they entered cocktail hour under a stunning, larger than life canopy created by Flora Flowershop. The classic Sperry reception tent was filled with a sea of paper lanterns and a mix of unique tabletops, from farmhouse tables to rounds, each with a different centerpiece. A perfect Door County sunset and the glow of the tent illuminated the barns, resulting in a marvelous scene not likely to be forgotten. We are simply smitten with each image from The McCartneys Photography!

    Colorful Floral Wedding Inspiration

    Scottsdale’s El Chorro resort was a stunning backdrop for this whimsical styled wedding inspiration created by Victoria Canada Weddings and Events. Selecting a dramatic floral linen from La Tavola Fine Linen as their inspiration, they designed a garden soiree featuring bold patterns and vibrant florals by Carte Blanche Design. Elegant and eclectic details abound, including a hand-lettered vow board by Dear Sarah Design, a painted wedding cake by Ruze Cake House, and stylish lounge furniture from Prim Rentals. From the unique statement floral for the ceremony setup to the delicate blush gown from Bella Lily Bridal, not a detail was left unfinished, and we are swooning over the images captured on film by Elyse Hall Photography!
