Charming, Whimsical Wedding at The Tasting Room


Today, I'm so excited to share this lovely wedding that was held recently at our downtown Salt Lake City venue, The Tasting Room and catered by Culinary Crafts!  Bursting with whimsical details, pretty touches, and fab food,  this wedding was so much fun!  Check it out! TastingRoom We loved that the guests were greeted with the photo guest book table!  Not only a fun way for your guests to drop you a line, but a great way to make sure you get a picture of all of the fabulous friends and family that celebrated the day with you! TastingRoom2 The oversized "LOVE" signage topped of with colorful balloons was another fun touch!  We love the pairing of these details with the neutral burlap linens.  It really adds a sense of balance and warmth to the event. TastingRoom3 The ceremony set up was so pretty with the lovely handmade bunting and those beautiful fruitwood chivari chairs! Another great mix of elements that created a great overall feel. TastingRoom4 Check out these AWESOME cakes!  I love that the wedding cake topper was a zombie-fied version of the bride and groom - And how cool is the vintage VW bug groom's cake?  Such great attention to detail (the license plate says JSTMRD) and those cans are just so cute! TastingRoom5 This wedding was chock full of delicious eats - starting with the appetizers!  The guests were treated to an assortment of Lemon Marinated Tortellini and Sun-dried Tomato Skewers, Bruschetta with Roasted Artichoke and Gorgonzola, and Ahi Tuna Tartare in Won Ton Cone.  YUM! TastingRoom6 So many fun details!  From the cute, pink dachshund escort cards, the tiny Maker's Mark favors, to the shimmery gold table numbers - this wedding had so many things that showed off this couple's personality!  Love it! TastingRoom7 This is one of my favorite Culinary Crafts's summer salads - which you can find a recipe for here.  We plated this beautiful Balsamic Marinated Watermelon Salad with Crushed Pistachios and pre-set it for the guests so when they were invited to sit down for dinner, they were welcomed with this pretty and refreshing salad! TastingRoom8 TastingRoom9 Love this buffet!  It was full of seasonal favorites like Fresh Fruit & Berries, Fresh Green Beans with Lemon and Toasted Almonds, and Pommes Anna! TastingRoom10 They couple also chose to served Grilled Hawaiian Butter Fish with Rhubarb Compote and Balsamic Strawberries, Carved Pepper-Crusted Prime Rib with Cilantro Lime Aioli and Charred Tomato Salsa, Crispy Onion Straws, and Filly Frisee Watercress and Baby Lettuce Salad with Beets, Goat Cheese and Walnuts with Lemon Walnut Vinaigrette.  Seriously, so DELICIOUS! We loved this wedding and loved all of the personal touches that the couple added.  Not to mention, The Tasting Room was the perfect venue!  Thank you so much to Jessica & Solomon for letting us help them with this AMAZING day!
