NYE Wedding At The Tasting Room | Wednesday Wisdom


I am SO excited to share this whimsically wonderful event with you that was held at Culinary Crafts's very own Tasting Room!  We were so thrilled to be a part of this wedding, which was held on New Year's Eve, and loved, loved, loved the design that the couple chose to make the space their own.  I also loved the use of The Tasting Room for their ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception (complete with a New Year's countdown, of course!).  It really showed off just how versatile our venue can be!  Check it out! Love these glitzy shoes!  Perfect for a New Year's party/wedding! Downtown Salt Lake City is chock FULL of cool and urban locales for you and your honey to get some couple shots.  All within a short jaunt of The Tasting Room, I might add! We were just smitten with the handmade garlands that created a "curtain" for the windows.  So fun and colorful, they really set the stage for this one-of-a-kind wedding. Not only did this couple have GORGEOUS floral bouquets and boutonnieres, but I loved their non-traditional centerpieces with paper airplanes, succulents, and cosmos - all with a touch of sparkle! This backdrop really put the focus on the ceremony and made for a fun background during the wedding.  Plus the handmade aisle "runner" was super cute too! This wedding party was stylin'!  Loved the yellow/grey palette for the guys and the gorgeous greys for the gals, who were able to choose a style that suited them best.  Plus, the bride's lace headband and bow detail on her dress was such a great way to make the look her own. Yum!  No guest was left hungry with all of the butler-passed hors d'oeuvres about!  My favorite?  The Utah Apples with Utah's Own Beehive Cheese's Barely Buzzed Cheddar. Loved this chic (and DELICIOUS!) buffet with crab cakes, house made artisan breads, vegetable crudite, caprese salad, and Teriyaki chicken skewers, to name a few of the offerings.  Mmmm.... How cute is this cake?  Love the topper and the golden teacups they used as the cake plate base.  Seriously, these two are SO creative and I love their handmade touches! After the guests got their fill of dinner, the dessert buffet came out - complete with wedding cake, fresh fruit, vanilla custard with fresh berries and a popcorn bar!  LOVE the popcorn bar! This wedding was a blast and we are so happy to have been able not only to cater it, but to host it at The Tasting Room!  Congrats to Michelle & Charlie!  Also, if you are thinking The Tasting Room would be perfect for you, check out our website for more details!  Happy planning everyone!
