Repost from Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom – Heart of Gold: Geometrics & Glitter Styled Wedding Shoot


REPOST FROM SALT LAKE/PARK CITY BRIDE & GROOM'S BLOG: "Geometrics and heart motifs are popping up all over the design and fashion worlds, and we couldn’t be happier. What’s not to love about playful patterns and sweet symbols of love? The team at Scenemakers drew inspiration from the fun, youthful spirit of geometrics and hearts to design this vibrant styled shoot featuring bold pops of color, gold, and glitter. The theme is perfect for sunny summer weddings, but would also work well for nuptials near Valentine’s Day. Below, check out images by Jessica Peterson Photography from the styled shoot, which took place at the hip and versatile Tasting Room in downtown Salt Lake City. Read on for more details about the geometric + heart theme, plus a list of local vendors.

The shoot’s palette is bold and gold details are incorporated throughout. The theme was well matched with invitation artist Lauren Brady of Saucy & Kitsch for The Write Image. When I described the theme to her (and my new obsession with geometric hearts), she produced the most special and custom invitation suite for us—complete with a big geometric heart on the main invite. I died of joy when I saw this one!  Our stunning model, Michelle, wore an Alta Moda gem: a Hayley Paige ball gown. The dress was unbelievable, with a full skirt in layers of subtly striped, structured material. Soula Christopulos nailed the hair and makeup, creating a look that struck a balance between being fun and wedding appropriate. Culinary Crafts outdid themselves with a totally unique and intriguing menu—one that everyone eagerly indulged in after the shoot!' The menu created by Culinary Crafts included the following tasty items: 1st Course Spring sweet pea and pesto risotto topped with tiny asparagus spears, a fried quail egg, and shaved Parmesan; black pepper brioche Dessert Mini pear-vanilla bundt cakes topped with Meyer lemon whipped curd with a slice of whole dehydrated pear and candied lemon zest Drinks Thyme raspberry cream soda with floating raspberries and a sprig of thyme; petite cups of coffee Thank you for sharing this styled shoot with us, Scenemakers and all the talented local vendors involved!" Thank you so much to SLPC Bride & Groom for this feature!  We here at Culinary Crafts LOVED this shoot (and there are other, just as amazing, shoots to come too!)  Such a lovely stylized shoot with a team of fabulous professionals!  Happy inspiration, everyone!

Bootcamp with Jess is PERFECT for Brides!


BootcampWithJessMany of you out there are brides-to-be and as a bride-to-be, you are probably dreaming about the details of your wedding day.  In addition to those fun daydreams, very often we see brides - not to mention the bridesmaids, mother-of-the-brides, mother-of-the-groom, etc. - fretting about looking absolutely 'perfect' on that special day too .  Now, I'm here to tell you that I do not advocate, in any way, overly extreme or unhealthy methods of dieting or exercise to get yourself to a certain weight that would compromise your health or body.  There is NOTHING worth putting your body and mind through that trauma.   I do, however, think that a healthy diet and exercise routine that can you tone you up while simultaneously starting a positive and active lifestyle (whether it be for your wedding day or just for your future - and beyond) IS definitely worthwhile!  With that being said, I am so happy tell you about a fellow Best of State Winner for Athletic Camps & Training: Bootcamp With Jess.  They've won 6 times in a row, so they are doing something right, for sure!  I can say, with full sincerity, that this program is life-changing.  I, personally, have never been what you'd call 'athletic' and I literally cringed when people mentioned running or most exercise in any capacity.  But, my husband and I decided that it was time to make a change to get healthy and stave off any health related issues that may pop up as we get older.  So we joined Bootcamp With Jess, and let me tell you, this program is AMAZING.  All it requires is 6 weeks of your life - dedicated to focusing on improving your diet, exercise, and overall heathy lifestyle - and you will be amazed at the strength that you gain!  So, brides, do you have 6 weeks?  Do you want to tone up, get healthy, and embark on healthy life as you begin your future with your new hubby?  Bootcamp With Jess is a great option and they have locations in Midvale, West Jordan, and Draper!  Here's a snippet of what you can expect: As you can see, it's challenging, but there is an overwhelming sense of camaraderie and support - and the instructors are the best!  (Shout out to Instructor Coleman!)  Don't let your age, health problems, physical activity level, or anything like that make you think you can't do the program either.  I've seen 12 year olds do the program and 70 year olds do the program - and every age in between.  I've see marathon runners and couch potatoes make it through.  And they will work with any health/physical limitations that you have (with your doctor's supervision, if needed) to make sure your experience is a positive step toward a healthy life!  Seriously, whether you are a bride looking for a bridal bootcamp or a person who just wants a kick in the rear to get healthy, Bootcamp with Jess is AWESOME!  Happy getting healthy, everyone!
