Natural & Elegant Wedding | Trendy Tuesday

By

Happy Monday everyone!!!  To celebrate the wedding season, I wanted to share a wedding with you that is simply AMAZING.  Elegant, gorgeous, stylish, and of course, full of delicious food from yours truly!  Mara Marian-Harwood of Events by LMG designed this stunning wedding which was held at the Salt Lake Hardware building in the heart of downtown. She really utilized the space's inherent beauty to create a contemporary event full of natural touches and chic finishes - and it was all flawless, as usual!  Take a look! Vineyard tables and bench seating create a cozy, family-style feel to the event while chic lounge seating allow guests to mingle and relax while having a fabulous evening.  The simple and gorgeous centerpieces give a sense of elegance, yet stay low so people can see each other and talk without obtrusive arrangements.  I love the use of varying linens to give it a cohesive yet eclectic feel! The romantic vibe was carried through by the use of lots of candles, soft strung lights, and pretty crystal votives hung from the ceiling.  The overall feeling was warm and inviting, even in such a large space. Butler passed hors d'oeuvres were an upscale touch to keep the guests mingling and their hunger satisfied! The bride a groom created custom action stations with their favorite foods to share with guests - SO CUTE!  Plus the custom signage was beautiful and let the guests know the menu choices!   I love the milk and cookie shooters!  Such a fun twist on a comfort classic. This wedding was a show-stopper for sure, which goes to prove that simple and elegant don't always have to be boring or something you've seen before.  Sometimes sticking with natural, yet beautiful touches can go a long way to creating an event that your guests won't soon forget!  And, as always, having a wedding planner extraordinaire like Mara doesn't hurt either!!! We'd also like to mention that we so EXCITED to see this wedding featured in the newest issue of Salt Lake/Park City Bride and Groom - which is out on newsstands now!  Such a gorgeous wedding and it fits in perfectly with the other AMAZING weddings and features we have come to expect from the SLPC Bride and Groom team and we are so thrilled to have been a part of it!  Go pick up a copy of Salt Lake/Park City Bride and Groom and as always, happy planning everyone!
