A Simply Stunning NHMU Wedding from the Pages of SLPC Magazine!
Today, I am going to share a GORGEOUS Culinary Crafts wedding that is brimming with natural beauty that you might recognize from the pages of Salt Lake / Park City Bride and Groom Magazine! Plus, it's perfect inspiration for the upcoming fall season because the menu took queue from some of the bounty of local fall produce. We absolutely LOVED this couple, the venue (The Natural History Museum of Utah ) is gorgeous, and the beautiful, yet low key, organic vibe was so perfect. Plus, our friends at Fuse Weddings & Events did the event design and planning, so it was flawless, of course! Thank you for sharing these stunning images, Elisha Braithwaite Photography - now, check out this amazing wedding!
How pretty is this Minted invitation suite?! Even the stamps are perfectly picked to match the style of the wedding! LOVE!
The Natural History Museum of Utah is such a GORGEOUS backdrop for photos! We love the architectural design of the space and the mix of materials makes it so full of texture and visual interest!
Isn't this couple stunning? Love them!
Another great feature of this venue? The natural light!!! Not only do you get amazing views of the Salt Lake Valley, but it makes this reception area so bright, open, and airy! Also, we loved that the dinner menus were custom designed to match the invitation suite! Such a great touch.
A simple, organic table scape is anything but boring! We loved the pop of gold with the natural and white linens, the texture of the glass, concrete, and wooden flower vessels, and the soft pinks, whites, and green colors of the florals that Orchid Dynasty put together. Add a sprig of lavender with a simple tie of gold raw silk in the napkins, and you are set!
Another simple, yet gorgeous, piece of this wedding was this escort card table! We love the use of succulents and the white rocks with the modern design of the cards! Such a clean, polished look!
Of course, we put together one of our signature charcuterie boards! Full of local cheeses and meats, local honey, and dried fruit this is a perfect nosh for guests before dinner!
This couple chose a 'family-style' dinner - which is one of our favorites! This setup encourages guests to interact and mingle while sharing plates of delicious food, like our house made breads and gourmet butters. We loved the Heirloom Carrot Sourdough with Black Lava Salted Butter and the Rustic Ciabatta with Pesto Butter!
The salad course was our Snuck Farm Salad with Spinach, Romaine, Utah Pears, Cranberries, Candied Walnuts, Gorgonzola, and Balsamic Vinaigrette. So yummy!
For the entree course, we served a bunch of different options so guests had a ton of variety to choose from! This is our Rocky Mountain Red Trout with Granny Smith Apple Chutney. Such a great fall menu choice!
Next, our Roasted Vegetable Napoleon with a Rosemary Skewer, Olive Oil Drizzle, Garnished with Sea Salt. Aren't these so pretty? They are pretty tasty too!
Another fantastic fall menu option? Our Brown Butter Sage Gnocchi with Chantrelle Mushrooms and Sweet Corn. This is always a guest favorite!
Last, but certainly not least, our Cabernet-Braised Short Ribs. SO. GOOD.
Isn't the view AMAZING? Imagine dining with this incredible backdrop, some fun conversation, and fabulous food! Pretty perfect, I'd say.
Staying true to the simple, yet gorgeous, feel of the event, the couple asked us to create a simply gold accented Almond Cake which we garnished with blueberries and simple greens. I absolutely adore this cake, so pretty!
Another fun element that the couple chose that we loved? Local chocolate and tawny port tastings! You know how we LOVE our local chocolatiers, so this was a favorite part of this wedding for sure!
Of course, there were sweets too! These Lavender Shortbread cookies tied in the sprigs found in the guests napkins and also were a great little treat to grab before going back onto the dance floor!
For autumnal weddings, we love serving a dessert that perfectly pulls from the fall harvest! So, we served Sweet Potato and Pecan Cakes with a Salted Caramel Moat. And let me tell you, this dessert was made of the stuff of my dreams, people. A knock-out way to end this couple's amazing menu!
Wasn't this wedding so dreamy?! Thank you so much, Salt Lake / Park City Bride and Groom Magazine for featuring this gem in your glossy pages! We hope this inspires all of you to have fun with your menu and go for simple, yet striking details that will amp up your wedding day! Happy planning, everyone!
