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!

“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

Venue Love: Studio Elevn

Utah is bursting with BEAUTIFUL outdoor venues and spaces.  It’s definitely a benefit of living in such a gorgeous place.  Often, however, we forget about the fabulous indoor venues we have here too!  One such place is Studio Elevn, located in downtown Salt Lake City.  It is definitely a Culinary Crafts favorite and perfect for events wanting a more urban chic feel.  Here’s a little bit about the space:

Studio Elevn is the perfect space to reflect your unique and creative vision. With 2,500 square feet of beautifully lit, modern-industrial space, your event or gathering is sure to awe all who attend. The New York-style loft studio is located in the heart of Salt Lake City making Studio Elevn ideal for private parties, galleries, wedding receptions, performances and more. Venue capacity is 80 seated or 200 for receptions.”

StudioElevn

Isn’t this space cool?  Love the industrial feel.

StudioElevn2

This space is also SO versatile – whether you want a vintage look, modern feel, or something high end couture, this is the space!

StudioElevn3

Love this minimalist event and the pops of gold are awesome.

StudioElevn4

Even a modern organic feel is just perfect here and I love that feature wall.  This space has so many possibilities!

StudioElevn5

This space is also great for corporate parties or brand launches.  It really lends itself to become a part of YOUR company’s look.

StudioElevn6

Doesn’t this space look romantic?  LOVE!

StudioElevn7

Lastly, I love the Studio Elevn ‘mission statement’.  It really is a space born out of love, inspiration, and creativity.  Such a great added bonus to any space.

Isn’t Studio Elevn great?  We think so!  And you should DEFINITELY check it out if you are wanting a beautiful space for any event in the Downtown Salt Lake City area.  Happy dreaming, everyone!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  In honor of the green isle, I couldn’t help but share this pretty plate we put together for a fabulous inspiration shoot a couple of months ago!  Love the vibrant greens and I think it’s a good note that you don’t have to feel like you need to make only the Irish classics to celebrate with a little green!  (Although, the Irish classics are delicious, so there’s nothing wrong with making them too!)  There are so many fabulous dishes that are just naturally hued green – like our roasted white cauliflower crisp with brussel sprout leaves, pea shoots and lemon-garlic vinaigrette.  Yum!  Hope you have a wonderfully green St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!  Happy celebrating!

Western Union Inspiration Shoot: The Venue

Some of you may remember this FABULOUS vintage ranch shoot that Culinary Crafts did last fall (see it here), but now that it’s been out in the magazines, we wanted to focus more on each of the individual vendors who helped make this day sheer perfection.  Up first, we have the venue, LDW Ranch, which is located in Springville, Utah and really set the tone for this GORGEOUS shoot.  Here’s what Mary had to say about LDW Ranch:

“People often ask me, ‘Where do you find these amazing venues?’ I am always on the lookout for those one-of-a-kind exclusive venues that may perfectly fit the vision of a bride. LDW Ranch is a hidden gem that is destined to be one of Utah’s more unique and beautiful venues.”

Check out some of the breathtaking views of this beautiful property!

LDW_Ranch

Love the lush landscape at this property!  It’s like being in your own little Eden.

LDW_Ranch2

How gorgeous is this lakeside ceremony?  Just stunning!

LDW_Ranch3

I love the mix of the romantic fabrics, rustic wooden accents, and natural beauty that we used.  This locale just lends itself to one-of-a-kind events.

LDW_Ranch4

Plus, you couldn’t ask for a better place for your wedding portraits.  It’s SO PRETTY!

You might also run into some new friends at the ranch too! :)

LDW_Ranch7

We just LOVE LDW Ranch and are so excited for all of the fabulous events we’ll be doing there in the future and it made for the perfect place for this magical inspiration shoot.  So, if you are looking for a unique ranch venue, DEFINITELY check out LDW Ranch!  You won’t be disappointed!  Happy planning, everyone!
