It’s not every day that wedding venues in Utah can enjoy the appearance of a very special guest who comes to honor a beautiful bride and groom. We have photos to prove the visit of Elvis to Lara and Korey on May 10, 2014. He attended their romantic Utah wedding reception celebration at Ivy House Weddings and played a significant role in their farewell from the event.
This couple chose to have a simple ceremony with about 25 guests followed by a small reception for the closest of family and friends. Lara chose the stylish black and white Damask linen table toppers and runners over a hot pink base linen. These were included in her venue rental price. These colors set off the green boxwood wreath topped with hot pink rose petals with the classical tall silver candlestick centerpiece. With real candlelight and the fireplace, the ambiance was romantic and intimate. She used the Ivy House table ware package and self-catered with sandwiches and salads made by dear family and friends. Utah weddings can be affordable when the wedding venue allows the bride to make choices like these for her celebration.
Lara and Korey’s beautiful three-tiered cake was created by Granite bakery. The middle tier was lined with fully opened roses. The base tier was lined with seemingly perfect rose petals each delicately cascading over the one below it. Again the cake was in shades of pinks and whites set upon the black and white table linens.
Skyline Flowers created the bride’s bouquets, the boutonnieres, corsages, and simple rose petals for the tables. With close friends taking all the photos to document this momentous occasion, the wedding party of about 150 enjoyed simple socializing and the traditional bouquet and garter toss along with the bride and groom cutting the cake.
After a dazzling sparkler send-off, Elvis was their chauffeur driving the newlyweds away in his vintage pink cruiser! What an enjoyable and one of the most memorable departures from Utah reception centers!
