A Romantic, Destination Wedding at the Gallivan Center Plaza!

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Food, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, Sharing the Love -Vendor and Client Relationships, Venues We Love, Wedding Trends | No Comments

Today, on the blog, we have a STUNNING wedding that Culinary Crafts had the pleasure of working on last summer with our friends, FUSE Weddings & Events!  This wedding absolutely transformed the Gallivan Center Plaza into a romantic getaway for the couple’s guests!  The couple, who reside in Wyoming, wanted to host a wedding in Salt Lake City because the majority of their family lives here.  They also wanted to create a gorgeous experience that was still casual with local comfort food and lots of lounge seating so their guests could let their hair down and enjoy the celebration – and I have to say, FUSE knocked it out of the park!  Check it out!  And thank you to Lindsey Shaun for the beautiful photos!

Have you ever seen the Gallivan Center Plaza look so magical?  We haven’t either – but boy, was it breathtaking!  And the florals by Soil and Stem sent this event over the top!

I couldn’t resist sharing another shot of this gorgeous set up and the amazing lounge furniture that the bride wanted so their guests could relax.  So lovely!

I love the centerpieces and the geode table numbers are so PRETTY!  Ah-mazing.

How cute is the couple?!  They were so fun and I loved the seating chart was so pretty too.

The bride loves shrimp lettuce wraps – so, of course, we passed those during the cocktail hour and the guests loved them!

Going along with the ‘local, comfort food’ feel of the menu, we served local fruits and cheeses, which were a great snack for guests to grab as they mingled during cocktail hour, and a selection of beers that included some local favorites from Uinta Brewing Co.

Another fun element?  This street taco station where guests could make their own tacos!

A taco bar isn’t complete without chips and salsa!  So, we served a bunch of different salsas, cabbage slaw, and fun, fiesta color chips!  Yum!

 

For the Utah-themed dinner menu, we brought in local meats including skirt steak,which was grilled on-site, with a chimichurri sauce.  Side note, we love having a carving station at events.  Such an elegant addition to the menu!

Again, how gorgeous is this reception space???  SO IN LOVE WITH THIS!

The couple chose to host a buffet of local favorites so guests could grab a bite at their leisure.  This menu was so much fun to put together!

Local Farm Greens with Feta, Raspberries, Toasted Almonds and Raspberry Vinaigrette and Mesquite Chicken (also grilled on site) with Mango Salsa were two of the offerings.  Such great options for warm weather events!

A classic staple at any of our events is our House-Made Artisan Breads with Sea Salt Butter.  Plus, how can you have a ‘comfort-food-centric’ menu without Mary’s Mac N’ Cheese?  The answer is you can’t.  🙂

A beautiful night for a gorgeous wedding!

These hand stamped forks are adorable!  The perfect compliment to the couple’s simple, yet elegant, cake from Flour and Flourish!

Love this shot of these two lovebirds!

Last, but certainly not least, we served our House-Made gelato cones alongside the wedding cake!  A perfect pairing!

We LOVED this wedding!  It truly was an amazing event that we were so happy to be a part of!  And thank you to the amazing team of vendors who made this day so epic!  I hope this inspires everyone to create stunning events of your own.  Happy planning, everyone!

A Modern, Stylish Tasting Room Wedding: The Food!

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Event Tips and Planning, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, Sharing the Love -Vendor and Client Relationships, The Tasting Room, Venues We Love, Wedding Trends | No Comments

Today, we have the food from Chris and Jacoby’s wedding and it was just as AMAZING as the decor – if not more so, in our opinion!  (If you didn’t check out the decor post, make sure to check it out too – there was so much pretty going on at this event!)  Thank you again to Logan Walker Photography for the beautiful photos.  Now, on to the food!

The gorgeous florals from Artisan Bloom were a great pair to the industrial touches and the vintage bar sign was such a fun detail!

Custom “His & His” cocktails and Mini Tacos with tiny Patron bottle shots were the perfect welcome to this stylish reception!  How fun is this hors d’ouevre presentation?!

Of course, what’s a dinner without bread?  Our house made Black Pepper Brioche Rolls with Utah Sea Salt Butter paddles were so yummy!

One of the many food stations – The delicious Mezzaluna Salad station!

Our two salad offerings were so delicious (as well as beautiful!)  Our Farro Salad with Harvest Tomatoes, Roasted Beets, Herbs, Sweet Onion, Arugula, and Balsamic Vineagar and out Farm Greens, with Mango, Kiwi, Wonton Crisps, and Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette, topped with Toasted Coconut.  YUM!

A menu after my own heart!  The couple chose to serve a selection of artisan cheese boards – how cute!

Our cheese boards featured Tea Hive Cheddar, “What’s Her Name?” Basque Style Sheep Milk Cheese, Deer Valley Triple Cream with Truffle, Point Reyes Blue Cheese, and Parmigiano Reggianno accompanied with Red Grapes, Honey Crisp Apple, Honey Comb, Bada Bing Cherries, and Salted Marcona Almonds.  So good!

We also hosted action stations with different entrees including our Pan-Seared Black Cod with Honey Soy Glaze, Wilted Spinach, Parsnip Puree, Garnished with Edible Micro Flowers.

Next up, our Smoked Short Rib Adobo with Mushroom Escabeche with Purple Potato Mash and Honey Barbecue Sauce!  Wait until you see the preparation of this dish…

Each Short Rib entree was individually smoked under glass dome for the guests at the action station.  Such a fantastic presentation!

The couple also chose to have a sushi bar complete with customized chopsticks that their guests could take home as favors!

Plus, of course there were desserts!  Firstly, our House Made Gelato Station featured Vanilla and Passion Fruit flavors – both with options to ‘spike’ them!  Vanilla pairings were Espresso, Bailey’s Irish Cream, or Kahlua and the Passion Fruit pairing was Limoncello.  Delicious!  And how fun were these sugar skulls?

Cronuts, anyone?  We served these decadent beauties in cute little kraft bags so the guests could grab one as they left or take it with them while they mingled!

Another fun addition?  Giant Cotton Candy Mountains!  So much fun!  We also served Fresh Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies and Affagatos!  SO DELCIOUS!

Lastly, this cake from Carrie’s Cakes was stunning!  And remember those custom cheese boards?  Well, guests were give these custom laser etched “Praise Cheeses” wooden cheese boards as well as a Jack-O-Latern to take home as favors (did I mention their wedding was a couple days before Halloween?!)

We loved ALL of the amazing details, love, and thought that Chris and Jacoby brought to their AMAZING wedding day and we’re so thankful for being able to showcase some truly creative eats for one of our favorite ‘freind-ors’ big day!  I hope this inspires all of you to create an amazing day that is uniquely you as well.  Happy planning!

A Modern, Stylish Tasting Room Wedding: The Decor!

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Event Tips and Planning, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, Sharing the Love -Vendor and Client Relationships, The Tasting Room, Venues We Love, Wedding Trends | No Comments

Today, we have an all-time FAVORITE wedding of Culinary Crafts’s!  One of our friends and vendor partners, Chris Lavoie of Silver Summit Events, got married last year and we KNEW his wedding was going to be AMAZING, plus he chose to host it at our downtown venue space, The Tasting Room, and, I tell you, it did not disappoint!  Now, this wedding was chock full of so much pretty, we had to split the post into 2 parts – first up, the decor!  We will post the delicious food next week, so make sure to check back.  Thank you to Logan Walker Photography for the beautiful photos.  Check it out!

Chris and his husband, Jacoby, were such a perfect pair!  We loved the cohesive look they brought to their wedding clothes while still choosing things that were uniquely each of their own styles!

We love the tongue in cheek wording on their programs and the kind reminder signage to the guests to let the professional photographer take the photos so they could be present in the moment is a favorite for sure.

How pretty is this ceremony setup?  The florist, Artisan Bloom, hit it out of the park!  LOVE!

More gorgeous florals from Artisan Bloom!  Chris and Jacoby chose to host an intimate reception with their closest friends and family and they put a lot of thought of how to really show their guests something meaningful, thoughtful, and BEAUTIFUL!  Well done, we say.

Another gorgeous overview of the space.  I mean, how could I not?

Their wedding was held in fall and we loved the elements of the harvest that were added as well as masculine touches of navy in to keep the feel beautiful as well as not overly feminine.  The result?  A rich palette of so much delicious, visually interesting decor!

I can’t forget the breathtaking hanging floral chandeliers!  These were such a pretty and striking addition to the room!

The lovely ladies of Artisan Bloom killed it!  We love this picture of Chris, Kellie, and Dayna – such cuties!  Plus, isn’t this lounge space and the floral adorned frame great?  Perfect for photos!

Speaking of which, we love this ‘family portrait’ of the couple and their cute Great Dane pups.

Another fun sign for the guests at the bar.  We love it!

To encourage people to mingle, the couple opted to add high boy seating around the space so people could move about after dinner while they partied into the night.  We love the gold accents and the charcoal linens!  Such a polished and chic look.

Chris and Jacoby wanted to make sure that their guests had SO much fun!  They added tons of games, including shuffleboard, and a fun sketch “photo booth” with hand drawn versions of the vintage style photo strips!  (How cool is that?!)

They even brought in a pool table, which we loved!

And, because no detail was overlooked, they had their initials custom printed onto the pool table balls!

How pretty was this wedding?  LOVE IT!  Plus, remember to stay tuned for the food post where we focus on the AMAZING menu the couple chose to serve at their wedding!  We had such a great time collaborating with them.  Stay tuned and happy planning, everyone!

New Downtown Salt Lake City Venue: Church & State

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Event Tips and Planning, Food, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, Venues We Love, Wedding Trends | No Comments

As I’m sure you know, Culinary Crafts is always on the lookout for new, interesting, and gorgeous venues.  When we found out about Church & State in downtown Salt Lake City, well, I can say we were thrilled!  Originally constructed in 1893 (which means it dates back to even before Utah was granted its statehood), this venue was recently renovated from a church to a breathtaking 3,500 sqft space that is perfect for any event!  It boasts traditional styling with touches of modern, industrial design elements and an AMAZING floor to ceiling Mondrian-style stained glass window.  Such a unique and versatile space, we couldn’t wait to host Brianna & Dylan’s wedding here!  Thanks to Kelli Bramble for the beautiful photos!  Check it out!

The couple was looking for a venue that could transition from their wedding ceremony to their reception in the same space. With a guest list of about 100, they needed a larger venue with multiple spaces for each part of their day.  Well, Church & State was just the ticket and it had just the right mix of natural and industrial elements to fit the couple’s style!  Isn’t it stunning?

Their ceremony took place upstairs and then transitioned into the cocktail hour with lounge furniture and cocktail tables so the guests could mix and mingle with each other.  We love how light and bright this space was!

Of course, we served delicious bites during cocktail hour.  The guests were served butler-passed hors d’oeuvres of Carolina Style BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders and Mozzarella Salata Skewers with Kalamata Olives, Tomato, Basil, and Balsamic Drizzle.  So good!

The couple chose a sophisticated color palette of black, white, and gold for their reception dinner which allowed this venue’s unique beauty to shine through!  We love how the palette tied into the space so perfectly.  So pretty!

We love to pre-set elements of the menu on the tables to engage the guests and get them excited for the food to come!  So, for this event, we plated our House-Made Artisan Rolls with Paddle of Sea Salted Butter.  Yummy!

The guests were welcomed to the main level for a fantastic buffet dinner and the sounds of Pixie & the Partygrass Boys provided the perfect background music!

The buffet was a collection of some of our signature favorites!  Like our Arugula, Pear, and Goat Cheese Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette and our Butternut Squash Ravioli with Brown Sage Butter, which is AMAZING!

We loved the multiple levels of serving dishes in the buffet because it added so much visual interest!  Another menu offering?  Our Roasted Fingerling Potatoes!

We rounded out the menu with our Green Beans Almondine and Lemon Herb Chicken!  What an elegant feast!!!

Isn’t Church & State gorgeous?  We love it and hope it inspires all of you planning your own events to check it out (and other new venues) to find a unique space that fits your style perfectly!  Happy planning, everyone!

Lavender, Lemonade and Honey Editorial from Utah Valley Bride Magazine!

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Event Tips and Planning, Every Day Life at Culinary Crafts, Featured: Culinary Crafts in the Press, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, Sharing the Love -Vendor and Client Relationships, Tips, Vendor Love!, Venues We Love, Wedding Trends | No Comments

Today, in honor of the first day of spring yesterday, Culinary Crafts is so thrilled to share this dreamy Lavender, Love and Honey editorial with a gorgeous spring palette that should get all of you excited for the upcoming season!  (Side note, you may recognize this shoot from the glossy pages of Utah Valley Bride magazine!!!)  The vendor team was truly extraordinary including Kristina Curtis Photography who’s photos were STUNNING!  Check it out!

Isn’t this setting GORGEOUS?!  And the design by Leslie Dawn Events was seriously breathtaking!  It was truly our pleasure to spend the day at Young Living Lavender Farm!

Calie Rose is a floral magician!  The flowers totally tied in with the lavender fields without overwhelming the surroundings or fading into the background.  Such a beautiful addition!

Our Lavender Lemonade with a Candied Ginger Lemon Wheel is always hit and was the perfect beverage to serve for this shoot!

We chose to serve a light lunch/brunch type foods to keep with the light feel of the shoot.  Our House-Made Whole Wheat Bread with Clove Honey Spread was the perfect light, yet delicious, comfort food!

How cute are these Limoncello favors?  We loved the calligraphy favor tags from Karli Noel Calligraphy and the little hand stoppered bottles.  SO fun!

This bike was SOOOO cool!  We loved the whimsical element it added to the shoot – and isn’t a perfect shade of spring yellow?  Love it!  Plus, our bride was such a natural beauty!

I love this photo and couldn’t help but share it!  I think it definitely encapsulated the fun, beautiful and spring-like vibes the team was trying to create!

Another shot of our signature Lavender Lemonade.  We love it, plus isn’t the bride’s amethyst ring from designer By Angeline amazing?  Love the organic feel of it!

This cake by our friends at Flour and Flourish was beautiful as well as delicious!  We loved the use of candied lemon and lavender as the minimal decoration.  And, I have to say, it paired with our Lavender Lemonade amazingly!

The simple and elegant menu with more calligraphy by Karli Noel Calligraphy and the eclectic place settings were such a dream.  Plus, we love the soft pink of the glassware.  All around, this table was stunning!

Wasn’t this a perfect way to welcome spring?  We thought so!  Thank you again to the entire vendor team for putting together an AMAZING day and thank you to Utah Valley Bride for featuring it in their 2017 issue!  Happy spring, everyone!

CC_Laura&Charley

What a pretty bridal party!  Aren’t those bridesmaid dresses gorgeous?!

CC_Laura&Charley2

And, talk about beauty!  How about this lace detail on the bride’s gown??  Plus, didn’t Artisan Bloom create a picture perfect bouquet?  LOVE!

CC_Laura&Charley3

One of our favorite parts of Red Cliff Ranch is this meadow with the red cliffs (for which is was named) that tower behind the ceremony site.  Such a breathtaking backdrop!

CC_Laura&Charley4

Of course, on this warm summer day, we made sure the guests had a great place to hang out during cocktail hour.  We served beverages and hors d’oeuvres that kept the guests mingling and happy until dinner was served.

CC_Laura&Charley5

Pulled Pork Sliders and  Prociutto Wrapped Utah Peaches were just a couple of the delicious bites our awesome team butler passed to guests!  So yummy!

CC_Laura&Charley6

We also created this AMAZING cheese board with local honey comb!  Such a hit!

CC_Laura&Charley7

Isn’t this reception space BEAUTIFUL?!  FUSE Weddings & Events never disappoints!  And those florals by Artisan Bloom?  Gorgeous!

CC_Laura&Charley8

A simple, yet elegant, place setting was the perfect addition to this romantic table.  Plus, we love the added touch of Karli Noel‘s handdrawn calligraphy that let guests know where their seat was!

CC_Laura&Charley9

CC_Laura&Charley10

The couple chose to serve the dinner ‘family-style’ which, as you know, Culinary Crafts loves!  We started with Artisan Breads like Black Peppercorn Cheddar, Beer Bread, and Corn Muffins with Utah Sea Salt Crusted Creamery Butters.  We also served Roasted Beet Salad with Snuck Farms Fresh Greens, Goat Cheese, Utah Pistachios & Citrus Honey Vinaigrette; Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Olive Oil, Cracked Pepper, and Sea Salt; Mesquite-Grilled Utah Red Trout with Tomato, Basil and Ricotta Risotto; Chicken Paillard with Napa Salad, Daikon, Mango and Mint; and finally Grilled Skirt Steak Cumin-Coriander Mushrooms, and Parsley Sauce.  SOOO good!

CC_Laura&Charley11

CC_Laura&Charley12

To follow up that AMAZING dinner, of course we had to create a decadent dessert bar – just like this one!

CC_Laura&Charley13

Chocolate Pot de Creme with Vanilla Whipped Cream and Mason Jar Berry Cobblers with Fresh Whipped Cream?  Yes, please!

CC_Laura&Charley14

Plus, House Made Gelato?  You bet!

CC_Laura&Charley15

We also made some ‘late-night’ snacks like these Mini Grilled Cheese Bites!  The guests LOVED them!

CC_Laura&Charley16

And, you can’t have a ranch wedding without an AMAZING s’mores bar, just like this one!  The guests always have so much fun making these treats by the fire!

This was SUCH a fun wedding and we are so grateful to all of the amazing vendors who made this day such a gorgeous one!  I hope this inspires you to plan some dreamy ranch weddings, everyone!  Happy planning!

rossiconeweddingfood2

I couldn’t resist starting off this post with another photo of this GORGEOUS tablescape!  Love the rentals from Diamond Rentals, florals from Decoration Inc, and planning from Soiree Productions!  Plus, our delicious house-made breads and artisan butters were a welcome addition to the tables, don’t you think?

rossiconeweddingfood5

To start things off, of course we had passed hors d’oeuvres!  We greeted guests with this Balsamic Glazed Elk Carpaccio that was paired with a mini taste of local Wasatch Brewery‘s Polygamy Porter that complimented the bite perfectly.  We love it when we can do fun pairings like this!

rossiconeweddingfood6

We didn’t stop there!  We also served BLT Stuffed Heirloom Grape Tomatoes, Butternut Squash Lollipops garnished with Pistachios, Lemon Avocado Shrimp Crostini, and Roasted Pheasant with Plum Jam on top of a Granny Smith Apple.  YUM!  Plus, we served amazing slow drip coffee to the guests, which they loved, because they got to see the process of getting the perfect cup!

rossiconeweddingfood3

Of course, the bar was decked out beautifully too!  Not only did we have fun creating the perfect food menu, but we made sure the signature cocktails were up to par too!

rossiconeweddingfood4

Local distillery High West was the choice of spirits to inspire our Signature Cocktail menu!  The couple really wanted to focus on the local Utah food and beverage and we are so lucky to have such a great selection of local vendors.  High West cocktails are always top notch!

rossiconeweddingfood7

The couple chose to serve a plated 4 course menu to their guests that featured local ingredients and sustainable foods.  We were happy to oblige!  First, we served a Locally Grown Spinach and Romaine Salad garnished with Local Pears, Gorgonzola, Candied Almonds, and Dried Cranberries with a Caramelized Onion Balsamic.  Pretty and delicious!

rossiconeweddingfood8

Next, we served Mesquite-Grilled Rocky Mountain Red Trout with Granny Smith Apple Chutney on a bed of Seared Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, Tomato Lentils, with Parsley Oil and Micro Greens.  We had to show this dish 2 ways so you could see all of the amazing-ness happening on this plate!

rossiconeweddingfood9

Next, we served an entree of Grass Fed, Locally Raised Beef Tenderloin, Locally Grown Corn Cilantro Risotto, Julienne Vegetables, garnished with Yucca Chips.  And, last but not least, guests were treated to a dessert of Poached Local Pears, Toasted Masala Almond Streusel, and Amaretto Zabaglione.  Such a wonderful meal!!!

rossiconeweddingfood10

As if that meal wouldn’t leave you happy and satiated, we also created a fun dessert display for the guests as they danced the night away.  LOVE!

rossiconeweddingfood11

How cute are these Mini German Chocolate Cakes and Mini Pies Garnished with Edible Flowers?!

rossiconeweddingfood12

French Macarons and Chocolate Pot du Creme rounded out the deliciousness on the dessert display.  We LOVED bringing in the natural vibe with edible flowers on the Macarons too!

rossiconeweddingfood13

Another shot of this fun dessert display!  And how pretty are these linens mixed with our pretty wooden serving boards?  And the mercury glass lanterns were AMAZING!

rossiconeweddingfood14Last, but not least, the couple hosted an “after party” for the guests who wanted to keep the party going – and you need fuel to keep dancing the night away, right?  So the couple gave out favors of our House Made Bacon Bourbon Popcorn, as well as an Late Night Bites Bar with Mini Pepperoni Pizzas, Sliders & Fries, and S’mores Cones!  YUM!

We simply LOVED this wedding and had so much fun coming up with this creative and delicious menu!  I hope this inspires you all to get creative with you wedding food too!  Happy planning, everyone!

A Rustic, Romantic Wedding: The Details

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Event Tips and Planning, Every Day Life at Culinary Crafts, Food, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, Parties, Sharing the Love -Vendor and Client Relationships, Vendor Love!, Venues We Love, Wedding Trends | No Comments

Today I have a STUNNING wedding to show you that was over the top beautiful, full of AMAZING food, and the cutest couple ever!  Check it out – and thank you to Logan Walker Photography for the awesome photos!

rossiconewedding

How pretty is this gown?  And the ceremony florals by Decoration Inc – seriously AMAZING!

rossiconewedding9

To keep with the rustic romantic vibe, these long dark wood tables covered with white lace overlays were a perfect choice.  Paired with the mixed metal flatware, it definitely added a special pop of visual interest to the table settings.  The planning team at Soiree Productions ALWAYS creates the most beautiful events.  And the cake by Carrie’s Cakes was gorgeous!  Love the simple elegance of the organic grapevine accent and cut wood cake base was so PERFECT!

rossiconewedding6

I couldn’t resist sharing this photo!  🙂  Making sure your guests have bathroom options at some of our more rustic ranch venues is a MUST, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it look so much prettier than a boring white box that you try to hide.  We LOVE the wooden star decorations and Decoration Inc was so smart to dress up the commode with simple boughs of greenery.  Love it!

rossiconewedding2

Doesn’t this wedding party look just stunning?!

rossiconewedding3

The private residences at Wolf Creek are full of such great venue options!  This particular residence was awesome and was a great escape away from the city for the wedding guests that was simply chock full of natural beauty!

rossiconewedding8

This space was amazing!  We loved the mixture of Diamond Rentals‘s chairs and tables to create an eclectic and inviting space.  And, as usual, Decoration Inc hit it out of the ballpark with the florals and Soiree Productions‘s planning and design was stellar!  Such a stunning set up!

rossiconewedding4

How about this for cocktail hour entertainment?  This jet’s high flying skills definitely kicked off this celebration right!

rossiconewedding5

rossiconewedding11

A simple addition of a billy button flower with these soft grey napkins were a great pairing with these gorgeous, and fun, menus from Ann Elizabeth!

rossiconewedding10

More pretty spaces from the reception space!  We loved the little lounge spaces that were created throughout the space so that guests could mingle through the night.

rossiconewedding7

I just had to to show you another close up of the flower and tablescape for you, because, I mean, why not?!  It’s so pretty!

rossiconewedding12

The clear tent from Diamond Rental was a perfect choice for this reception!  The guests still felt like they were in the beautiful surroundings and at night, you could see the stars.  Such a great idea for outdoor weddings!

rossiconewedding14

rossiconewedding13

The guests partied away the night and danced under the stars, such a perfect end to this great night!  We loved this wedding, it was such a beautiful event and the vendor team was AH-MAZING!  Stay tuned for Part 2 of this event, though, where we show you all of the delicious FOOD!  You’re going to want to check back, I promise.  Happy planning, everyone!
