Talk about a wild ride! This destination wedding was amazing from start to finish and the rehearsal dinner was filled with unique and fabulous details. The couple who currently live in Washington DC quickly became cherished friends because of our long talks on the phone and email planning. It was an incredible adventure for me to plan and implement their incredible dinner and their even more incredible wedding at The ST. Regis in Deer Valley (details and pics HERE.) Talk about adding adrenaline the night before a wedding! Just like Olympic athletes, the guests rode bob sleds at heart pounding speeds winding through the gorgeous park city mountains. After the wild ride, they dined on authentic and delicious Persian cuisine. The women's start house at the Olympic Park venue was a concrete blank slate with horrible florescent lights. We knew we wanted to keep it modern with a warm yet casual elegance. The details included modern terrariums filled with moss ferns and elegant white florals. In place of the bright florescent lights, we hung various types of bare industrial bulbs mixed with geometric terrariums filled with flickering candles .Each guest went home a winner with their own Olympic Medal (a gold foil cookie of course!)
I know I look a little ragged here, but I'm truly in my happy place and I truly cherish these 3 women. Left to right: bride, mother of the bride, me, sister who was my bride as well.
