Wedding Showcase 2010

It was so fun to meet all you cute brides at the Wedding Showcase last week. There were so many fantastic vendors to get inspiration from... and for those of you who couldn't make it... be sure to check out the Wedding Showcase blog for more great ideas!
We decided to go with a Parisian theme, adding shades of pink and peach to a black and ivory palette .

One of the best parts about being a "Wedding Showcase" member is the "Team" factor. All the vendors are "team players" which will help ensure that your wedding has a cohesive feel to it as we coordinate together. The Riter Mansion were happy to let us feature their beautiful black Chivari chairs, which come standard when you choose the Riter as your venue. Thanks Arlette!

Mens Wearhouse went above and beyond to supply us with this handsome tux ensemble. They have such a great selection to choose from and keep up-to-date with current wedding trends.

There was lots of buzz about these pink ranunculas paired here with the ever popular garden rose. The berzillia usually comes in silver or green but we were lucky to find it with a little bit of both.

Marcie Taylor Events has an endless supply of beautiful linens sure to enhance any decor. This ivory tafetta is flocked in a black damask design.

If you keep up-to-date with the current wedding blogs and magazines you will recognize these "Macarons" not to be confused with the coconut "Macaroon" a hot new wedding trend. Originating in Paris this delicate french pastry comes in an amazing assortment of flavors and colors. Above, one of my personal favorites, the "Peach Melba" hiding a surprise... a fresh raspberry within... c'est magnifique!
So where does one find such delicacies in our little corner of the world... so far from the Eiffel Tower??? Our own petite Hailey is just as creative in the kitchen as she is in our workshop. When she's not designing a tres chic boutonniere... she can be found whipping up a new flavor of divinely taste tempting sweetness. Just one bite and you'll be speaking French in no time!!!

Oooo la la!!! Fresh Raspberry Nutella... see it's working already:)

Now girls... if you are going to spend mega bucks on the dress of your dreams... don't think that just because your hemline hits the ground no one will see those tennis shoes under there "Zoot alors!!!" Haven't you noticed? Shoes are featuring front and center these days. Behind is the bouquet we threw at the end of the show. The lucky catcher of the day "Madamoiselle Keller" who will be receiving a free bridal bouquet come October... Congratulations Keri!!!

The striped ribbon gave this ranunculus boutonniere a "French twist"

...and here we are taking a much needed break on one of our lounge areas. One lucky couple received a free lounge rental in their giveaway package. Give us a call:)

Tables aren't the only way to seat your guests at the reception. Another new wedding trend is the lounge area which has been gaining popularity here in Utah. This was another one we had displayed at the Wedding Showcase, blending these vintage shades of Peach, Apricot, and Depression Blue... up-dated with a
more contemporary style.

This is the new issue of Bliss magazine... pick up your complimentary copy you'll see at many of the vendors in town... or shoot us an email and we'll make sure you get one:)

Colin Botts kept us entertained throughout the day. For more info on music for your event check out the A-List Proffesionals in the back of the "Bliss" magazine found at many vendors throughout the valley.
This is Cascio Photography's way cute booth. Brittany is so adorable and put such a lot of effort into her booth... which is a good clue that she will put a lot of effort into making your wedding pictures perfect!

She enlisted our help for flowers to compliment her vintage look. We loved using unique and eclectic containers to complete her Anthopologie styled booth.
