Island Impact Feature from Utah Bride & Groom Magazine!


Today, I want to show you one of the features that we at Culinary Crafts were lucky to have been a part of in Utah Bride & Groom magazine!  This fun and fresh wedding was a real beauty and full of Hawaiian inspiration.  The couple vacationed in Hawaii and LOVED it (can you blame them??) and thought it would be a great idea to bring their love of the Islands to their guests.  We were so thrilled with how it turned out and the gorgeous grounds at the Garden Park Ward in Sugarhouse, Utah were the perfect setting for this lush affair!  Couple that with tropical menu offerings and you'd swear you were at an island getaway!  Check it out! IslandImpact The gorgeous layout in UBG!  Love it! IslandImpact2 Aren't the florals GORGEOUS?  I love the Hawaiian flowers and the bright colors!  Perfectly designed by Ella Bella Floral. IslandImpact3 I love the idea of a table of multiple cakes - that way, every guest gets their favorite or they can take a bit of each!  YUM!!! IslandImpact4 The menu was one of my favorite parts of this wedding (naturally!) but I definitely thing a well orchestrated menu can take your theme to a whole new level.  We served Kalua Roast Pork with Pineapple, Grilled Chicken with Mango BBQ Sauce, Macadamia Encrusted Halibut with Coconut Curry and Papaya Chutney, Grilled Sweet Potatoes and Vegetables, Romaine Salad with Papaya Seed Dressing, Island Fruits, and House Made Orange Rolls.  Mmmmm!  Plus, how awesome is the chalkboard menu?! IslandImpact5 These lounge areas were great for creating the relaxing vibe so often associated with Hawaii.  And the clean white lines and pops of coral were a perfect fit to create and Island theme! Thank you again to Utah Bride and Groom for this AMAZING feature and we loved the stunning florals and design from Ella Bella Floral and the beautiful photos from Jessica White Photography.  Stay tuned for even more features coming up!  Happy dreaming, everyone!
