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!

Our “Alt” Cake for Utah Valley Bride!

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

So, working at Culinary Crafts is pretty awesome.  Not only do you get to work with some of the best people around (our in house staff as well as the local vendors), but we get to be a part of some pretty creative and amazing things.  Case in point:  The “Alt Cakes” feature in the newly debuted Utah Valley Bride magazine!  Check it out!

UVB_AltCakesFeature2017

This feature was SO fun because they showcased 5 different alternative cakes by 5 different culinary artisans, but it didn’t just end there!  They used each spectacular cake to inspire a theme for it’s own vignette – all photographed beautifully by Elisha Braithwaite Photography!

UVB_AltCakesFeature20172

Our Cheese Wheel cake was pretty AMAZING (if we do say so ourselves) and the ‘Modern Italian’ theme was certainly right up our alley!  With a fantastic vendor team to put the visions together, well, we were just blown away!

UVB_AltCakesFeature20173

Between the coordination skills of Utah Valley Bride, the design & styling talent of Sage and Thistle Events and the amazing florist, The Potted Pansy, didn’t this turn out just BEAUTIFULLY?!  Our cake fit perfectly, don’t you think?

UVB_AltCakesFeature20174

Not only did the vignette include a gorgeous tablescape, but there was a perfectly matched paper suite too!  This modern and elegant design by Robert and Stella was so pretty!  Love it!

UVB_AltCakesFeature20175

We LOVED being a part of this shoot!  It was so much fun and we are all for dreaming up creative new trends for our brides!  If you haven’t already, pick up your copy of Utah Valley Bride, on newsstands now!  Happy dreaming, everyone!

Repost of a Culinary Crafts Inspiration Shoot on The Luxe Pearl

FROM MARY CRAFTS:
“The LDW Ranch is one of my favorite exclusive ranches in Utah. I wanted to feature an inspiration shoot at this gorgeous venue but I am over the typical “rustic”, “rustic chic”, and “mountain” weddings we have done for the past decade. As I walked the ranch, the movie: Wild Horses Can’t Be Broken” just kept coming back to me. I fell in love with the blend of this breathtaking mountain setting and the vision of vintage ranches from the 1930’s. Our path was set and this group of talented vendors were off and running to create one of the most romantic and stunning shoots I have ever done. Some of my favorite touches include: the Vintage Ice Tea Bar, Savory Macaroons and Short Breads, the leather place card napkin ties, the perfect pink vintage water goblet, and a chocolate caramel hazelnut tart that you can almost taste from the photo. Each vendor brought a unique addition to create this visual masterpiece for a complete wedding day.”

Gorgeous Tuscan Romance Inspiration Shoot!

We have another STUNNER to show you today!  As you know, Culinary Crafts LOVES inspiration shoots and this one was close to our very own Mary Crafts-Homer’s heart.  Inspired by the natural, rustic beauty of Tuscany Mary & Kristina Curtis of Kristina Curtis Photography dreamt up this beauty of a day and it’s brimming with gorgeous greens, abundant florals, and, of course, delicious food.  Check it out!

TuscanInspCC

How amazing is this antique limo?  LOVE IT – And it totally sets the tone for this gorgeous day!

TuscanInspCC2

This Villa was the most picturesque location for our shoot.  We love, love, love the natural beauty it boasted.

TuscanInspCC3

A well-dressed couple is always a must, in my book.  The beautiful beading of this dress (from Bridal Closet) and the soft navy blue of the suit were a match made in heaven.

TuscanInspCC4

Isn’t this tablescape dreamy?  I mean, who wouldn’t want to relax and catch up with their guests in this intimate, beautiful space???

TuscanInspCC5

Diamond Rental always has the prettiest stuff – and this grey farmhouse table with gold silverware and gold accented tableware was no exception!  Plus, check out that menu from West End Girl.  AH-mazing.

TuscanInspCC6

To tie in with the natural flair of this shoot, a single pear was used as a garnish for the place cards.  It was such a great fit for the look we were going for and added a subtle pop of color amidst Calie Rose‘s BREATHTAKING floral design.  So pretty!

TuscanInspCC7

Naturally, Culinary Crafts wanted to start the meal with gorgeous artisan-made breads.  These individual mini loaves were perfect and such a unique element!  Plus, how pretty are the blue glasses mised with the florals at this table?!?

TuscanInspCC8

More of the dreamy tablescape.  I seriously am IN LOVE with all of this!

TuscanInspCC9

West End Girl did a fantastic job of creating an invitation suite that felt like the perfect addition to this design.  Rustic, refined, and organic, these pieces were amazing.  Plus, look at this couple!  Stunning.  The. End.

TuscanInspCC10

Of course, you can’t have a Tuscan themed shoot without adding an Italian flair to the food!  A little bit from Mary Crafts-Homer about this: “It was like going home to design the food elements of a serene afternoon outside of Florence where wedding guests would embrace around a table of artisan cheeses, salumi, fruits, and loaves of fresh baked breads….ah, to be in Tuscany again…”  Simply beautiful.

TuscanInspCC11

I love the color and beauty in this table.  Such a fun menu!

TuscanInspCC12

Last, but certainly not least, this simple yet stunning cake was made by Annie Bee Cakery, and we are in LOVE!  It tied in so well to all of the other elements, and was delicious to boot!

Also, for another little extra dreamy inspiration from this day, check out this video from the shoot by Krissi Cook Films (located here)!  Just lovely!

Thank you to all of the AMAZING vendors who participated in this inspiration shoot!  It truly was an amazing day and turned out even more beautifully than we could’ve imagined!  Happy dreaming, everyone!

Repost from Strictly Weddings: Equestrian Wedding Dreams for the Gold N’ Glam

Culinary Crafts is so honored to share this feature from Strictly Weddings of one of our most gorgeous inspiration shoots of all time!!! Check it out!
Equestrian Wedding Dreams for the Gold N’ Glam

Equestrian wedding dreams are not just for the little girls who once wished for a pony. Chic farm style fetes are one of the hottest trends any season of the year. Today’s feature focuses on inspiration that comes in all shapes and sizes including the four-legged variety. A vision of cabernet and gold, bubbly champagne, too pretty to eat cakes, Utah’s beautiful Red Cliff Ranch scenery blended with a formal equestrian flair is all artfully captured by photographer Pepper Nix.

Gold N’ Glam Appeal

A variety of pink and red hues, fused with gold and black present a more formal mood and eloquently create something unexpected. Moving away from a country feel this talented group of wedding and event vendors capitalized on rich textures and luscious color tones. Sit back and take in the beauty of this fine affair – you will forget that you are looking at a styled shoot. Immediately drawn in by its equestrian wedding Gold N’ Glam appeal!

A Fusion of Cabernet and Gold

Not shying away from the growing popular use of gold, chairs, fine textured linens, flatware and goblets glistened in the metallic hue. To accent this royal theme a hint of cabernet chargers and red napkins were used to offset and provide a deeper opulence. A lace and silk swag draped the doors of the ranch stable for a grand entrance. While Studio Stems translated their floral creations into a traditional and formal style, keeping top-of-mind how the flower vessels would interact with the overall vibe and theme. First using a wide based rustic gold urn to hold a rich and contrasting ensemble of blooms. To help the table move with all its elements cohesively, they incorporated small antique gold glass cylinders and bowls with small arrangements as satellites around the main centerpiece. Studio Stem incorporated many of the same blooms used in the bridal bouquet for cohesiveness with the addition of red tulips, geranium leaf, plumose, rambling spray roses, and one large focal bloom in the form of a giant blush protea.

Farm Fresh to Table

Culinary Crafts who presented oysters on the half shelf topped with black sturgeon caviar set the air of fine cuisine. To utilize the idea of farm fresh to table, flavors of unadorned lump crab and bell pepper duxelle combined with a bite of heirloom cherry tomato would be passed to start the meal. In the cooler months, a warm soup course over cold salad for a truly formal dinner would be served. The rich golden color of the butternut soup suited perfectly to the tablescape. The cider cream and toasted pepitos (pumpkin seeds) garnished the top. We love the simple white porcelain bowl that allows the soup to shine on the red and gold place setting.

Ganache and Gold

Moving away from the traditional single wedding cake, a small ornate gold wedding cake acted as the centerpiece to Layers Cake Company dessert table. Petite black cakes added a bit of dramatic contrast to the dessert table. What could be more stunning than black ganache cakes with edible gold glitter?

Chic Rustic Elements

Autumn offers florist the opportunity to move away from blush, ivory, and other light tones and to work with some lush and vivacious color. Studio Stem implemented those soft light blooms of the warmer season for the bridal bouquet, but layered in the contrast of stronger colors like pinks, reds, and greens. Elegant large blooms of the dahlia in both the blush and a strong bold red were used to create a big bloom focus. The mood and the feeling of the ranch is embraced by a few rustic elements like the maiden hair fern, viburnum berry, smilax vine, and a touch of gold with the magnolia leaf wrapped in an antique gold satin.

Four-Legged Bridal Party

What equestrian wedding inspiration is complete without the addition of a gorgeous pure bread horse? Joining the bridal entourage, Studio Stem created a custom smilax vine necklace with an off set cluster of dahlias, spray roses, and ranucs to adorn this beautiful creature with a few extra blooms beautifying the stallion’s long tail.

Rustic Glam Bridal Style

The bride wore Junko Yoshioka’s “Michelle” mermaid gown from Avenia Bridal. Ivory cotton and silk twill fabric gives this gown the thickness and structure that is perfect for fall! We love the unique fluted bodice detail and flounced train that adds softness to the opulent fabric and design. The mix of textures is a big trend and simply stunning for today’s bride. Washington Millinery ivory gloves added elegance and sophistication reminiscent of the Kentucky Derby style. They come just below the elbow for a lady-like, but not overdone look. Signature Brides started with long soft curls down the back for the bridal hair, gradually making them tighter toward her fringe. The front was brushed out to give a soft wave. A wide braid around the back of the hairstyle swept the curls to one side, pinning the center of the curls up to create the illusion of less length in the front to accentuate the bride’s neckline and the top of the dress. Richards Design headband is perfect for the bride deciding between a veil or unique hairpiece; it has a birdcage veil as well as a floral/feathered fascinator accented with horsehair bands. Signature Brides used soft colors for the eyes using shades of gold and pink with dark browns in the corners and a touch of black in the crease for definition. Bold red lipstick and black mascara with individual false lashes completed this subtle yet glamorous equestrian look. Standing beside the gorgeous bride, the groom wore a Genesis fitted tuxedo from Mr. Mac with an “O” button, single-breasted styling and side-vented back. Tailored in soft, luxurious Super 100’s wool that featured a satin notch lapel and satin double besom pockets. The bride’s ring was 18K white and rose gold two tone by Makur Designs from Goldsmith Jewelers with a show-stopping 1.26-carat pink emerald in the center surrounded by .49-carat total weight in diamonds. The groom’s ring is 14K white and rose gold two-tone men’s wedding band. A rare rose pearl necklace where each pearl was handpicked and matched was wrapped around the bride’s wrist to create a layered bracelet look.

Leather and Lace

A rough horse head sketched out during the evening hours in Ann Elizabeth Custom Graphic Design & Printing Studio’s “Leather and Lace” notepad was the first step toward the inspiration of the paper suite. The rich and decadent touch of leather is how the leather strands that wrap around the main invitation became part of the design. The leather square over the leather strands was the perfect opportunity to introduce the horse head monogram for the set. Lace layers on the invitation softened the leather and give the piece balance between hard and soft elements. The menu featured all of the best matching details. A small piece of the leather strand and a band of lace lay across the menu top. Consistency and attention to details all the way through a bride’s paper suite, from save the date to the wedding date, are personal touches guests notice.

Equestrian Wedding Dream

To capture all the beauty of this equestrian wedding dream, Ryan Hinman Films was on hand to bring the day into motion.
Bravo, everyone! We are more than inspired.
