Ivy House is one of a few new wedding reception centers in Utah. Hosting over 50 events in their first year (June 2011-June 2012) has given them a lot to be proud of. They have discovered some very valuable preferred partners who they feel very confident to recommend to those brides needing additional reference. They work with caterers, cake bakers, and a florist and now we feel confident to recommend a local photographer. One photographer that has shot several events at both Ivy House and Atrium Wedding reception venues is a local artist – RLT Photography. Ryan Thompson works via word of mouth and has been photographing weddings and all types of events for years and years. Ryan is pleasant to work with and has a nice touch of catching those special moments that often go unnoticed. Take a moment and see some of his beautiful work here at these two fine wedding venues in Utah.
Wedding reception centers in Utah now include the beautiful Ivy House Weddings at Western Gardens downtown. The wedding celebration on March 23rd delivered all invited guests a big splash of hot pink, sparkles, and a lot of sentimental beautiful memories.
This bride chose as her color hot pink, but touched it with the elegance of black. Her table centerpieces were her own stylish creations resting on striking black table linen toppers which covered hot pink base linens. Upon square mirrors, she set mod figurines including perfume bottles, high heels, and fashion models. Some centerpieces included a simple white rose in crystal bud vases. A splattering of rock crystals around the base gave it that final touch. This bride certainly has a tasteful eye for flair and fashion.
The wedding cake was elegant as well. A white cake simply wrapped with wide black lace, tied with pink and black ribbon trimmed with a beautiful glittering brooch. Very simple: very sophisticated.
Even her wedding bouquet was simple with white flowers, no greens. But again simple with glittering brooch pins intertwined amongst the floral arrangement. This was a work of art. Everything decoration she brought to Ivy House displayed her style.
Guests were treated to the latest rage at Utah reception centers – the refreshing taste of Italian Sodas. Utah Celebrations catering was hired to create each one for each particular guest. Young and old could choose from a wide variety of flavors and could add cream if they desired.
The newlyweds also displayed many of their fun engagement photos throughout the Ivy House wedding venue in Utah. A family member had put together a beautiful quilt depicting the lives of the bride and groom. Even the little children enjoyed studying it and pointing to eyes and noses on the quilt. Their photographer of James Erick Photography followed the newlyweds throughout the evening taking memorable photos of the couple and guests.
Of the many reception centers Utah has to offer, this beautiful couple enjoyed their beautiful wedding celebration as Ivy House Weddings at Western Gardens downtown.
One of the first decisions made and a most important attribute of any wedding is the color scheme a bride will use in her reception halls. Many Utah brides started at a very young age dreaming of their Utah weddings with certain favorite colors. The color the bride chooses will radiate the kind of woman she has become and the kind of ambiance she wants her guests to feel at the celebration honoring her and her husband.
Factors that should be considered in completing your color scheme are simple: 1) Obviously, a color that you love, 2) the season for the celebration, and 3) the wedding venue you’ve chosen.
#1 – The color you’ve been dreaming of is most important. However, be prepared to have it be the main bold color or possibly an accent combined with other complementary colors. For example, red is a beautiful autumn and winter color for weddings. Spring, not so much. However, red coupled with yellow and a hint of orange is a beautiful combination for a spring wedding. Your color can serve as the main event or as a beautiful accent.
#2 – The season does make a bit of difference on your color palette. Again, be prepared to have your favorite color coupled with others to create that ambiance for a complete event. Spring colors like baby blue and pale yellow can work in the winter by adding some accents of black or browns. The atmosphere you create inside will compliment the outside.
#3 – Sometimes the wedding venue you choose will have a bearing on the color tones you finally put together. You want your colors to make a statement. Remember, you are creating a feeling and a flow for all your guests to experience. If your venue is a garden type with plants all over, then kelly green might not make a statement but rather blend into the green already there. Maybe a waste of money. However, a soft green coupled with white would be stunning.
View the color wheel found at Budget Brides. It is complete with seasons, the meanings of the colors, and easy to see visual of complimentary colors (two colors that lie directly opposite each other on the color wheel), and tertiary colors (three colors of equal distance from each other on the wheel). These color schemes are pleasant to the viewer. There are other color schemes. For example, monochromatic colors – using different shades of a color for a more dramatic effect.
Many wedding reception centers in Utah, like Ivy House Weddings at Western Gardens downtown, lends itself to any color scheme. From bold reds to soft pastel peach, most color schemes will work beautifully in well put together wedding places. With your creative touch, your expressive personality, and the right reception venue in Utah, your wedding celebration will be most memorable for you and for your guests.
Salt Lake City weddings are most convenient and comfortable in the new Ivy House Weddings at Western Gardens Center downtown. This beautiful couple slowed down for a very pleasant evening enjoying many friends and family for a sit down dinner of finger-licking good BBQ ribs and chicken. Over 80 guests celebrated the guests of honor for their first dinner as husband and wife. “Ceremony’s Over….Time to eat!” was imprinted on special aprons covering her elegant dress and his pristine suit so they would be ready for the reception to follow.
For the guest tables, the bride chose crushed silver table linens with a splattering of warm golden sunflowers and photos around Ivy House’s tall silver stick candles. Notice the touch of chocolate kisses scattered as well. The head table had a stunning ruby red topper to set apart this beautiful couple.
The wedding cake was topped with endearing figures of “Mr. Right” and “Mrs. Always Right” confirming this couple’s zest for fun in a relaxed informal setting. Ivy House was the perfect of all the wedding venues in Salt Lake City for the three musicians on piano, electric guitar and saxophone. The music dazzled guests and encouraged dancing throughout the evening. Music rings so beautifully in this venue whether guests use live music or simply use the incredible sound system Ivy House provides. Many happy reunions and fond memories were created at Ivy House Weddings in Salt Lake.
