A Gorgeous Autumn Mountain Wedding

Hello all!  Today on the blog, I wanted to share this gorgeous natural beauty of a wedding held at the STUNNING venue, Aspen Meadows.  This day really let the beauty of nature speak the loudest and I thought it would be a perfect event to share on this beautiful day!  Check it out!

Is this not just jaw-droppingly beautiful?  Photographer extraordinaire, Pepper Nix, captured the dazzling setting just perfectly.

The design was natural and understated, like I said, this couple really wanted to harness all of the beauty that the mountains and venue had to offer.

I also love these little succulents that were added to the floral arrangements on the tables. So cute and brought a pop of green to the soft palette.

Of course, we served our house made breads.  No dinner would be complete without them!  We also loved serving local Uinta Brewing‘s 21st Anniversary Birthday Suit Ale.  Yum!

The couple chose to serve a buffet of delicious dishes, including this fresh Caprese Salad and also a Green Salad with Roasted Corn, Apples, and Citrus Vinaigrette.  Yum!

We also served Grilled Utah Trout with Moroccan Tomato Jam and Mashed Potatoes topped with Microgreens.

As if those dishes weren’t enough, we also served Slow Cooked Shortribs with Rosemary, Onions, and Carrots and a Roasted Vegetable Medley.  SO GOOD!

This couple kept it simple with the desserts being cupcakes and a small cake for them to cut.  Love their cake toppers!

KelseyFowle9

Aren’t the cupcakes beautiful?  And, of course, Mary Crafts-Homer was on scene making sure everything was perfect!

Lastly, I had to show you a close up of this cake!   It was a pretty on the inside as it was on the outside!  And yummy, to boot!

We LOVED this wedding and were so thrilled with how it all came together!  We hope it inspires you to take in all of the natural beauty you have at your disposal in any event you are planning!  Go out and enjoy the day!  Happy dreaming, everyone!

Western Union Inspiration Shoot: The Food

I know many of you remember this BEAUTIFUL inspiration shoot that Culinary Crafts did recently at the LDW Ranch.  Well, not only was the setting gorgeous, but the food, well,  it was AMAZING!  Now, I might be a bit biased, but it seriously was SO much fun to create this menu and I couldn’t help but share it with you all!  Check it out!

LDW_Food

Firstly, I have to say that creating a menu that will share such a pretty table is the bee’s knees.  MOOD Events & Scenemakers hit the design out of the park!  Love, love, love.

LDW_Food2

On to the food!  To start the cocktail hour out right, we created this artisan cheese display featuring a whole honeycomb.  I love the visual impact the honeycomb brought to this station!

LDW_Food8

We also created an assortment of savory macaroons and savory shortbreads to pair with our Tea-tini bar, which we’ll feature soon!

LDW_Food4

 

Isn’t this place setting pretty?  And the leather seating tags, designed by our very own Mary Crafts-Homer, were a fun keepsake!

LDW_Food3

Love the Aged Parmesan Cheese & Sun Dried Tomato Skewer with a Rosemary Sprig starter – and if that wasn’t enough – our first course was this Beef Carpaccio with Caper Berries.  Such a stunning way to kick off this meal!

LDW_Food5

 

What could follow that first course, you ask?  Well, this delicious Center-cut Pork Chop with Compressed Melon and Balsamic accompanied by House-made Cornbread that was baked in individual porcelain bowls.  Yum!

 

LDW_Food6

Lastly, the dessert!  We served a decadent Chocolate Ganache and Salted Caramel Tart that was simply to die for!  We also had the pleasure of having one of the AMAZING cakes made by One Sweet Slice (oh, how we miss them) that was simply perfect as well!

This menu was beyond perfection, just like this entire shoot!  We so enjoyed being able to join forces with some of our FAVORITE vendors and love every detail of the day!  Happy dreaming, everyone!

EasterCookingClass

We love this pic of Meagan taking charge on the baking side of things!  Mary and Meagan were AWESOME together and a perfect instruction team!

EasterCookingClass2

Isn’t this great?  We love it when young chefs come to class and this young man rocked the cake decoration for the Easter Basket cake!

EasterCookingClass3

We had a full house and we made sure to fill them up on DELICIOUS food including our Signature Orange Rolls, Rosemary Orange Pork Loin, and a lovely spring salad!

EasterCookingClass4

Doesn’t it look yummy?

EasterCookingClass5

The finished Orange Roll Bread ‘Nest’ and Easter Basket Cake are SO FUN!  Definitely a holiday favorite for us at Culinary Crafts!

A Modern DIY Wedding Repost

Recently, this AWESOME wedding we did was featured on a blog all the way in Norway!  We couldn’t help but share this post by the Bryllups Inspirasjon blog!  So fun!  We loved this wedding and are just thrilled that our work has reached such far away places!!!  Check it out!
[Reposted and translated with Google Translation]

“Urban and modern meets vintage in this amazing do-it-yourself wedding. Most of the decorations are made by the bride with the help of her sister.  The newlyweds wished style should be fun and relaxed. The food was therefore delightful mini dishes like tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwich, hamburger with fries, and fried chicken with corn cobs.  The details were selected to get the fine vintage style, where they had focused on the colors copper, red and turquoise. And the result is just awesome.
The wedding was provided by photographer Pepper Nix Photography
