Michelle & Mark's Ski-Inspired Soiree
Michelle and Mark's ski-inspired soiree, featured in the Winter/Spring 2016 issue of Utah Bride & Groom magazine, was the perfect combination of metropolitan and mountains. The New York couple wed at Stein Eriksen Lodge with the gorgeous snow-capped mountains as the backdrop and captured beautifully by Patricia Lyons Photography.
The bride wore a stunning strapless dress while her maids were robed in a deep plum with coordinating blush pink stoles. Even the flower girl was dressed to perfection as she presented the wedding rings in the most beautiful birchwood boxes.
Following the ceremony, guests entered the ballroom and were greeted by a combination of round tables and vineyard tables that incorporated shades of plum, blush pink, champagne, and rose gold which complemented the room's dark wood accents. The tables, adorned with eye-catching floral arrangements and candles, featured rose gold flatware and a beautiful textured charger accompanied by a custom menu and a small flower.
The couple included big-city elements through the formal dress code, pillar candles, gold chiavari chairs, and satin linens, while birch tree stumps decorated with flowers, skis that served as a guestbook, and a pinecone cake topper highlighted the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains.
Guests danced the night away in the candlelit and cozy ballroom as the groom sang along to every word of each Sinatra song. This elegant mountain wedding left these big-city guests in awe of the beauty Utah has to offer.
