Wedding venues in Utah host fun couples like this beautiful couple at Ivy House wedding reception center at Western Gardens Downtown. The fun personalities of this couple Genevieve and Robert were on display with their cake topper – a bride and groom “packing heat”! They obviously are jovial but at the same time have a classical taste. The bride chose black base linens with white damask toppers. A simple calla lily with a touch of green accented as centerpieces.
We allow our families to self-cater if they choose, but Genevieve chose to utilize our highly recommended vendors for catering and cake design. Utah Celebrations catered with fresh fruit, appetizers and hot drinks for the cold wintery yet romantic day! One of our favorite cake designers created her wedding cake. Carrie’s Cakes does beautiful and delicious work. They are truly works of art! Bacchus was their certified bartender for light alcohol service. Flowers were provided by Flowerama. Beautiful Utah wedding locations like Atrium Weddings, are reasonably priced wedding venues that allow your wedding celebration reflect your personality!
So many guests said how much they liked the venue. Thank you so much! ~ Peggy, Mother of the Bride.
Ivy House is one of Western Garden’s chic reception centers in Utah and the wedding reception on May 9th of this year proved so. I attended to snap some photos of this couple’s happy celebration with two great families. The evening was so enjoyable that I stayed almost the entire evening taking photos of nearly every aspect of the party. This bride and mother created a beautiful touch to Ivy House that just lit up the wedding place, with lots of love, joy, and laughter.
Unique touches that I will note here about this wedding reception Utah enjoyed are as follows and I hope they can inspire you as you create that wonderland that you’ve dreamt about.
This bride chose the delicate lacy feel. This matched her delicate frame compared to the tall stature of her new husband. Her theme of white lace was accented throughout Ivy House and the sophisticated black rod-iron fixtures and chairs of Ivy House wedding venue were complimented with this frilly touch.
She then touched the sophisticated and frilly look with sunflowers that obvious reflect her personality – bright, beautiful and happy flowers.
The bride’s tender last dance with her father really touched me. There was so much love and gratitude shared between them on the dance floor. I was blessed to catch a few of Dad’s whispers in her ear, a sweet tear in her eye, and that incredible look as Father passed his daughter on to her new husband. What a sweet moment I shall never forget.
Pulling off the garter was priceless. See the photo of the bride.
The decorated car was something I’ll never forget. Yes, it was a beautiful silver Toyota Cruiser that was absolutely plastered beyond recognition. The bride dropped her jaw in disbelief when she finally could see it after the sparklers. The good part was that the friends and family had first wrapped the car first in plastic, and then decorated with syrups, cream, cherries, strawberries. If the food was at the party, it was on the car. The couple simply had to cut the plastic off the car and it all fell to the ground and they drove away.
Family photos outside were prime. The beautiful Ivy that was accidentally stripped from Ivy House walls during construction, has now just about filled in and offered a beautiful backdrop for the bride’s maids in yellow. What smiles and beauty accented the Ivy House garden.
The cutting of the cake, the sparkler send off, the food, and all was beautiful and so much fun to witness. This couple was off to a beautiful start by having their celebration at Utah wedding reception centers like Ivy House Weddings at Western Gardens Center Downtown.
As for who-did-what at this affair, the wedding cake was brought in by Kneaders, the photographer was JacqueLynn Photography, and her beautiful sunflower arrangements were a creation of a friend that works at Flower Patch. The food was catered by our very popular preferred caterer Utah Celebrations. We are proud of the work they do and the value they offer at our Utah receptions to our beautiful brides.
At last night’s event, a friend of the bride in May also attended last night. She had referred Ivy House Weddings to another friend who had their celebration last night. The word is getting out what a wonderful Utah wedding venues are run by Western Gardens Center.
A beautiful wedding reception Utah will long remember took place at Ivy House Weddings at Western Gardens Downtown. This fun vivacious couple had lots of twinkles in their eyes as they celebrated their new union. To begin the evening, guests were greeted at Ivy House entrance by two sweet family members dressed in adorable white dresses and green satin sashes. Their big smiles welcomed all to the celebration.
The bride chose simple green and white as her celebration colors. Simple glass vases were adorned with satin green ribbons and filled with beautiful lacy white hydrangea blossoms. The cake also was simple yet elegant. White with white pearls were complimented with sweet bouquet of white roses and white hydrangea blooms on each of the three tiers. The bridal bouquet rested at the base until the traditional bouquet tossing occurred later in the evening.
The only blue item in the room was the groom’s cake; a massive flat cake of a New York Yankee stripped baseball uniform shirt topped with ball cap and ball, all made with fondant icing. It was spectacular and definitely displayed the obvious love the groom has for this baseball team. Everyone was excited to see not only the cutting of the traditional cake, but also of the groom’s baseball cake, especially the young children.
Guests enjoyed chocolate dipped strawberries, salad, and finger foods including cheese garnished tomatoes and a delicate white cookies topped with pastel green frosting. Refreshing lemon and strawberry water was enjoyed as well.
Tossing the bouquet was a lot of fun. The bride chose to toss from the balcony of this Utah wedding reception center’s inner room. The groom also flung the garter from above to those singles waiting below.
Wedding receptions in Utah are beautiful in Western Garden’s new Ivy House Wedding venue.
