As promised, today, we are bringing you the food from this AMAZING wedding we showed you last week! Check it out, and again, thank you for the amazing photos Logan Walker Photography!
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?
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!!!
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!
How cute are these Mini German Chocolate Cakes and Mini Pies Garnished with Edible Flowers?!
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!
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!
Last, 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!
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!
How pretty is this gown? And the ceremony florals by Decoration Inc – seriously AMAZING!
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!
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!
Doesn’t this wedding party look just stunning?!
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!
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!
How about this for cocktail hour entertainment? This jet’s high flying skills definitely kicked off this celebration right!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
Lindsay and Danny’s beautiful June Utah wedding at Blue Sky Utah was lovingly captured by the talented Erin Kate. Highlights from their charming wedding included the bride’s stunning Leanne Marshall gown, the vintage cake topper, all of the stump/wood details made but he bride’s grandfather that perfectly added that right touch to the wildflower theme and all the fun with their bridal party both playing cowboy and cowgirl while testing their lasso skills and their afternoon visit to Blue Sky Ranch’s Tavern! The couple had the perfect day, sunny skies and the love of all of their family and friends.
A Little bit of Q&A with the bride, Lindsay:
What your desired feel was for your wedding and why did you select your venue? Blue Sky is an incredible venue – it’s intimate, authentic and naturally stunning.
What was your favorite Mr. & Mrs. moment day of? Probably the first look. It was so special to have that moment of seeing each other for the first time, with just us two in a meadow.
What was your favorite part of your wedding? Dancing the night away!

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.”
