A unique and beautiful celebration of love took place at Ivy House Weddings, one of the newest wedding venues Salt Lake City has to offer. This couple and their families and guests enjoyed their Salt Lake City wedding celebration with beautiful flowers from Costco, delicious bundt cakes from an Aunt, and catered delicacies by another Aunt. This is one of the perks of booking with this Salt Lake City wedding reception venue called Ivy House Weddings. The bride and her pocketbook can decide where she wants to spend her budget.
There are three highlights I’d like to share that were particularly worth noting.
1. The party enjoyed a lot of dancing and this bride chose to hire an incredible DJ who really knew his music and knew how to get a crowd dancing. Craig Chambers Disc-Connection got the place rockin’ and everyone had fun either dancing or watching the dancers.
2. The second unique feature was the bride’s chosen refreshments for the evening. With a dear aunt and the help of several neighbor women, the guests were able to walk through a “pasta bar” that was so fresh and fun. The aunt in charge would place into the guest’s bowl items chosen from a number of choices, including different pastas, vegetables, chicken and even shrimp! Then the guest would continue to the cooking station of 5 fun loving women. Each had a small skillet and a burner in front of them. In addition, there were in front of them several pitchers containing two types of sauce – a creamy Alfredo (made from scratch) or a tomato based sauce (again, made from scratch). A cook would take the guest’s bowl and toss it in her pan and begin cooking it all. Taking only about 1 minute per guest, the delicious dish was then poured onto the guest’s plate. Then the happy customer could add salad, parmesan cheese, and breadsticks if they chose.
3. One other clever idea involved the photo book and guest signature book. Many times, guests simply get to glue their photos any which way in the couple’s book. This bride had thought ahead and had created placement strips for the photos. Guests didn’t have to decide where to place the photo and it gave the book more uniformity as the guests each had plenty of room to write their little best wishes to the newlyweds. This bride surely was thinking way ahead.
I will never forget the love in the eyes of the bride and groom as they danced their first dance. The bride obviously adores her husband and he likewise to her. Also, there were tender moments as the bride danced with her father. Many beautiful memories were caught on film by their photographer Kristen Mae.
Of all the wedding reception centers in Salt Lake City this couple could have chosen, Ivy House Weddings was the perfect wedding venue they could have picked. The mother of the bride wrote “We couldn’t of had a more perfect day! Everything was perfect. Thanks so much for the perfect wedding!”
