Today on the blog, we have a bright and BEAUTIFUL ranch wedding that was held at a private residence in the Maple Ridge Ranches – so you know its going to be breathtaking!  We absolutely loved how bold the color palette was and how fun and creative the menu was!  Thank you to Kristina Curtis Photography for the amazing photos.  Check it out!

A mix of classic lace with a fun twist from these colorful cowboy boots.  Plus that amazing bouquet from Roots Floral Design?!  Absolutely flawless!

How stunning is this floral arch?  These peonies are my favorite!  We love how the colors popped against the beautiful blur skies and green fields.

We love this ceremony space!  Such a perfect setting for this intimate celebration.

I love it when couples have their furbabies at their weddings!  And, how cute are these pups with their bandanas?!  LOVE.

I’m telling you, these peonies were out of this world!  We loved using them to dress up our wooden serving platters!  Such a great touch that perfectly tied into the feel of this wedding!

We loved how the centerpieces popped against the lace, natural burlap, and white washed tables and chairs from Diamond Rental.  Plus, the mixed metallics of the votives really added a touch of elegance!

I mean, seriously, how pretty was this room?  Love the wagon wheel chandeliers too!

The couple chose to give their guests favors that were sweet AND pretty!  This custom candy bar with these sweet little treat bags were so cute!

Of course, with a celebration this fun, we had multiple chef stations around the space to add interest and encourage the guests to mix and mingle.  We also loved using spare blooms to dress up the stations!  This is our Snuck Farm Salad Bar with locally grown produce with all of the trimmings for a summer salad!  Yum!

Beautiful sliced Utah Apples and Candied Pecans were an obvious choice for the salads!  Plus, we offered three tasty, summer dressings – Raspberry Vinaigrette, Caramelized Onion Vinaigrette, and Slide Ridge Honey Vinaigrette!  So good!

These cute take out boxes were the perfect vessel for our Vegetarian Wok station!  Aren’t they so cool?

Next station, our Chef Torched Tri Tip!  Always a crowd favorite!

Along with the Tri Tip we added our amazing sides, like House Made Chimichurri Sauce and Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Olive Oil and Sea Salt!  Such a great pairing!

This Curry Salmon with Carrot Oat Waffles and Bechamel Sauce was so different and delicious!  We loved this dish!

Another shot of these gorgeous florals, (because, well, they are amazing!)  And how pretty was this cake from Carrie’s Cakes?!  We loved how the lace and burlap elements tied into the simply elegant cake, and the addition of the bright florals really made it so romantic!

Of course, there were desserts (my favorite!)   We couldn’t just serve one, so we made it a grand buffet with ALLLL the delicious plus slices of the fabulous wedding cake!

We served our Pot de Cremes and Milk and Cookie Shooters.  Love these cute little bites!

Our Raspberry Crumb Bars are a classic dessert offering for mix and mingle receptions too!  So tasty and easy to carry around while talking to everyone!

Last, but not least, our Fresh Berry Parfaits and Salted Caramel Shortbread Bars rounded out the AMAZING desserts we served.  Perfect for this summer menu!

Wasn’t this wedding so pretty?  We absolutely LOVED this wedding and how colorful it was!  I hope this inspires you all to be a little bold with your color choices and creative with your menus!  Happy planning, everyone!

This warmer weather has the team here at Culinary Crafts jones-ing for summer!  So, with that vibe in mind, today we have a STUNNING Red Cliff Ranch wedding to share with you.  This romantically rustic wedding was full of beautiful touches – and we aren’t surprised because it was expertly planned and designed by one of our favorite vendor partners, FUSE Weddings & Events!  Add in pretty photos from Alixann Loosle Photography  and you have a winning combo!  Check it out!

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!

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.

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!

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

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

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!

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!

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!

REPOSTED FROM ROCKY MOUNTAIN BRIDE [See the original post here]:

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!
