On April 4, 2014, Ashley and Andy were the honored wedding couple at Ivy House Wedding reception center, one of Western Gardens Utah wedding venues. What an absolute gorgeous couple and beautiful ceremony and celebration.
Andy and Ashley chose to have their ceremony in a traditional chapel style set up. With 125 guest witnesses, their officiator Brian Arnett gave some beautiful advice to the couple soon followed by beautiful vows and pronouncement of man and wife.
While the newlyweds were congratulated and then enjoyed their photography session with Cody Moffat Photography, Ivy House staff made the quick change from ceremony to reception table configuration. Ashley chose a maize yellow base linen for her tables topped with silver pin tuck toppers. The Ivy House tall silver candlestick centerpiece added that final touch of class and style. Wedding venues in Utah that offer stylish and chic centerpieces as part of their package, are something to consider.
The family chose to self-cater with a beautiful collection of tasty desserts. About 400 guests enjoyed the dessert buffet of everything from chocolate mousse, lemon tarts, eclairs, dipped strawberries., and the list could go on. Now most Utah Weddings include the newest fad of a candy bar for the youngsters. Ashley and Andy were no exception. Lemon drops, candy necklaces, gummy bears, and lollipops made the favorite list!
As part of the decorations that evening, but actually as a wedding gift to the new couple, the groom’s father presented one of his original oil paintings to the couple for the beginning of their new life together. It was on display for all to admire as a symbol of his love for his son and new daughter.
Ashley’s cake was created by Jill Taylor with Sprinkle Belle Cakes. It was a three-tier masterpiece. The florist was Skyline floral and their photographer was Cody Moffat. They had hired a D.J. named Tommy with “Complete Music”. Wedding reception centers with tall vaulted ceilings like Ivy House create big sound that resonates beautifully and makes and atmosphere that is a lot of fun for everyone, whether you are dancing or just watching!
