Upscale, Country Picnic Wedding at the Utah State Capitol!

By

Today, I have a beautifully sweet wedding Culinary Crafts did at the Utah State Capitol last summer!  We loved how colorful, fun, and full of cute details there were in this wedding!  Plus, the bride wanted to host an 'upscale country picnic' - which we loved!  The menu was so perfect and in line with the playful feel of this event.  Thank you to Kelli Bramble for capturing this event so well - check it out! The mix of color, textrure, and vintage rentals from Refined Vintage Events were so PRETTY!  We loved how it all came together.  Of course, we would expect nothing less from Michelle Leo Events (who did the day-of planning)! These escort 'cards' were so cute!  So whimsical and bright.  Plus, look at how beautiful the menu board turned out (thanks Karli Noel Calligraphy!) We love welcoming guests to the table with a tasty bite, so we put together these decadent 'couples cheese boards' with local cheeses, fruits, and crisps for each couple to share.  So yummy (and fun)!  Plus, check out the fabulous country-striped napkins, bright table numbers, red chargers, vintage glassware, and organic florals - such a perfect tablescape for the upscale county picnic feel! How gorgeous is this day?!  A perfect day for this picture perfect wedding! The bride wanted to incorporate some fun elements like a Lemonade stand.  Isn't is cool?!  And these Rosemary Shortbread Cookies were a light, summer-y treat that the guests loved! The bride's breathtaking bouquet was put on display during the reception, because, I mean why not show off this beauty???  Lizy Bowden Floral Design hit it out of the park! After dinner, guests were encouraged to mix and mingle at these pretty highboys that were placed around the perimeter of the reception space.  We love dressing up the linens with a simple rosette.  Simple, elegant, and impactful.  Love it! The bride and groom had an extra special place at the head table with these AMAZING turquoise, vintage chairs and this cute 'Mr & Mrs' signage.  We love setting the couple's seats apart with cute details that really add to the visual interest of the reception space. Our staff is so AWESOME!  Look at them putting together SO many beautiful plates and looking so stylish to boot! The guests started their meal with our Summer Greens Salad with Citrus and Kiwi, dressed with a Raspberry Vinaigrette.  Such a perfect summer salad! Next, the guests were served House Made Potato Chips - and let me tell you, these chips were out-of-this-world! Because the bride wanted an 'upscale' feel, we served this country picnic as a formal plated dinner.  Such a fun twist!  So, along with the delicious chips, the guests were served this AMAZIN' plate - a trio of sliders.  We made a Classic Hamburger Slider on a Sesame Bun, a Pulled Pork Slider on a Poppyseed Bun, and a Turkey Slider on an Onion Bun.  Add our Watermelon garnished with Mint and Feta and you have a classic summer menu! Another look at this gourmet trio of sliders, beacause, why not?!  They are so DELICIOUS! We love this pretty, organic wedding cake.  Not quite a 'naked' cake, but definitely with that style.  And the floral touches were so perfect for the feel of this event.  Of course, we made sure dessert was over the top too!  Not only did the guests get wedding cake, but we made House Made Red Velvet Donuts with Culinary Crafts's Signature Gelato  too!  This was a favorite dish, for sure! Wasn't this event so fun?  We absolutely loved it!   From the decor to the menu, every detail was perfect and the guests were thrilled with this one-of-a-kind event.  We hope this inspires you to do something a little different for your wedding too.  Happy planning, everyone!
