intimate nuptials at a private sundance chalet

One of our July 2012 brides was married at a private chalet at Sundance.  It was a blustery, humid, rainy summer day (somewhat rare in Utah!) but cleared up just in time for her lovely early-evening event.  This wedding was evidence that investing in beautiful flowers can really transform your event.  While the chalet and the scenery were beautiful, it wasn't until the flowers arrived that it really looked like a wedding was about to take place.

The bride was getting ready in a room upstairs, so she and her mother stepped out on the balcony during set up to see the transformation of the space taking place.  The mother of the bride said to us, "Oh!  This is so gorgeous!  It looked so plain and now with the flowers it looks like this wedding should be in Country Living magazine!"  Of course we were happy as proverbial clams to hear that!  And now, enjoy a few photos from the event.

We found out post-event that the bride teared up with happiness when she first saw her bouquet!  It was a seriously lovely work of art.

The bride opted to have our signature vintage bud vases lining the length of the vineyard tables.  When a large arrangement isn't desired, we love this look for long tables.  

(note that the chairs at the ceremony were later used as chairs at the guest tables, which is why they are not pictured here)

The cake was a cute little buttercream number.  We kept it simple by using a single garden rose with a slight accent of pink veronica and silver dollar eucalyptus.  To finish it off and really make it special we wrapped the cake with a border of variegated lily grass and created a faux-bow effect.

flowers used in the designs:   garden roses, lily grass, silver dollar eucalyptus, veronica, football mums, hydrangea, stock, lisianthus, roses, larkspur, snapdragons, dusty miller, queen anne's lace, freesia, and calla lilies.
