Desert Glam Bridals {Brit + Chase}

07 07 2015
Utah is such a magical place; We have some unique desert bridals to share with you today from In Frames Photography, and we are all about them! In Frames’ inspiration was desert glam, “we wanted succulents, cacti, earthy tones, and lots of sand. I always love when all of the vendors are on the same page and we create magic! I was so excited when we decided to put this shoot together. I’ve been dying to shoot at the sand dunes and it all came together perfectly.” We have to agree with her here. This shoot is pure magic, and absolutely lovely!
Some Inside Scoop from the Photographer:
“The dress was incredible! It was a custom creation by the amazing Natalie Wynn Design. It was a light grey, crop top with the prettiest details.  She created this dress for our shoot and it was exactly what I had imagined. Danani never disappoints with her amazing veils and headpieces! They always make the look ten times better and add such a dramatic and beautiful flare.
Brit and Chase were so fun to work with as well, they are so in love and so easy to be around.  They were full of laughs and we had such a fun time creating this images!”

Lakeside Bridals

07 02 2015

We have a gorgeous styled shoot photographed by As Ever Photography to share with you today! We are completely smitten with the location she chose as well as the beautiful flowers. We asked Jenny of As Ever Photography to tell us more about the shoot:
“This shoot was inspired by the amazing vintage gown from Maeberry Vintage in downtown Salt Lake City. I had spotted it on a visit to the shop when I was picking up a different dress for another shoot and I just knew I had to photograph this one as well. I love the 1960s empire waistline, the delicate lace details, and especially the sweet floral appliqués. For this shoot, I wanted to create something bright and light with fun, sunny colors. I made a floral crown with white and yellow garden roses, Feverfew, and Queen Anne’s Lace. For the bouquet, I used these same elements, along with some orange and yellow Fire and Ice roses and dramatic foliage and tied it all together with rustic twine and a few lengths of divine hand-dyed silk ribbon from Silk and Willow (in marigold). These gorgeous colors, along with the charming lakeside location, provided the perfect showcase for this magical dress. What a gorgeous way to incorporate a vintage aesthetic into your modern wedding!”2015-07-01_0001 2015-07-01_0002 2015-07-01_0003 2015-07-01_0004 2015-07-01_0005 2015-07-01_0007 2015-07-01_0008 2015-07-01_0009 2015-07-01_0010 2015-07-01_0011 2015-07-01_0012 2015-07-01_0013 2015-07-01_0014 2015-07-01_0015 2015-07-01_0016 2015-07-01_0017 2015-07-01_0018 2015-07-01_0019

Simplistic Bridals {Kate}

07 01 2015

This beautiful bride wanted a spectacular wedding at a small price, we must say, Mariko Kay Photography did a wonderful job for Kate! Kate put together her own flowers, her sister (a cosmetology student) did her hair and make-up, her jewelry was handed down to her by family, and her mom made her dress. Such great ways to save while still looking fabulous! MarikoKayPhoto-1043 MarikoKayPhoto-1060 MarikoKayPhoto-1080 MarikoKayPhoto-1082 MarikoKayPhoto-1103 MarikoKayPhoto-1130 MarikoKayPhoto-1147 MarikoKayPhoto-1157 MarikoKayPhoto-1164 MarikoKayPhoto-1176 MarikoKayPhoto-1178 MarikoKayPhoto-1182 MarikoKayPhoto-1191 MarikoKayPhoto-1196 MarikoKayPhoto-1219 MarikoKayPhoto-1234 MarikoKayPhoto-1244 MarikoKayPhoto-1253

Flower Friday with Blossom Sweet

06 26 2015

Finally our favorite Friday of the month has arrived! We love working with our preferred florist’s here on UBB, they are all especially professional and talented! Today Melissa with Blossom Sweet is sharing with us an amazing look at one of her gorgeous bridal bouquets! She is incredibly thorough and informative! Thanks to our house photographer Lindsey Orton for great photos of this blush stunner! Take it away Melissa!
4F8A9838
 “For today’s post I wanted to provide you with a pretty bouquet to look at and keep the text geared toward brides hoping to use a blush palette at their weddings.  Lindsey takes such beautiful photos so the pretty part is covered!  Now onto some words.
4F8A9873

June is one of our busiest wedding months of the entire year, so we had no shortage of floral designs this month!  One of the reasons I chose this client’s bouquet for Lindsey to photograph is because the blush color combo is such a popular one and I wanted to give a list of some good individual bloom suggestions. 
4F8A9842
Some of the specific flowers we used included:

  • Juliette Garden Roses: Always a favorite with our clients!  Perfect for a little vibrancy in a muted blush palette, and the heavy petal look is so romantic and pretty.
  • White O’hara Garden Roses: Less expensive than David Austen varieties of garden roses, I love white o’haras because they are an ivory rose with a slightly blush center.  And they smell just divine.
  • Sweet Elegance Roses: Our client wanted hints of a slightly deeper mauve tone, so these were a perfect option.
  • Quicksand Roses: This particular rose is actually my all-time favorite variety.  I use it a ton because it is such a chameleon.  It can go from tan, to blush, to champagne, and even a little bit lavender.  Whatever it sits next to brings out different tones and I think it’s just stunning.
  • Stock:  Stock comes in many shades, but the blush is my personal fave.  Stock smells just amazing, but be advised that it needs special care and attention in the heat as it is somewhat sensitive.
  • Spirea:  Spirea really brings some dimension and an air of wispiness to the design.  With it’s woody stems it’s pretty hearty in the heat, too!
  • Hypericum berries:  Most people see these in red or green, but did you know they also come in peach, ivory, and pink?
  • Tulips:  I always try to give tulips a little room to do their thing.  Tulips have a mind of their own and they can either stretch upward or drape downward throughout the day.  Either way is fine by me!
  • Willow Eucalyptus:  My favorite variety of eucalyptus would have to be this one.  It’s slender leaves and malleable stems make for a romantic, drapey look.
  • Chocolate Lace:  Have you heard of Queen Anne’s Lace?  Did you know she has a sister named Chocolate Lace which comes in tones from brown to lavender to eggplant depending on the time of year?  We put just a little bit of the off-shoots in here, and larger pieces were used in the centerpieces.
  • Peonies: I know, I know, you all love these.  Unfortunately they’re very seasonal and not available all the time.  But they did add a bit of beautiful fluff to this bouquet.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            And there you have it.  Hope that gives you blush-lovers a few good options.  Good luck!”

Saltair Styled Shoot

06 25 2015

Today we are sharing a stunner of an inspiration shoot shared with us by Natalie Felt Photography and Becca Olson Photography. We had them share a little more about the inspiration behind the shoot!
“The inspiration for this shoot stems from a beautiful and colorful floral design including antike roses, orchids, sweet pea cosmos and coral charm peonies. These beautiful blooms were the perfect complement for the Chantel Lauren Designed wedding gown. We loved the free flowing layers of Swiss dot netting and floral lace top. These details came together to create a whimsical styled look that gets us excited for summer wedding bliss. The setting for this shoot takes place at the wide open salt flats located in Magna, Utah. This simplistic beauty of this location provides a wide open setting where the colors of summer flowers create a romantic atmosphere. “0001 0002 0003 0004 0005 0006 0007 0008 0009 0010 0011 0012 0013 0014 0015 0016 0017 0018 0019 0020 0021 0022 0023 0024 0025 0026 0027 0028 0029

Quaint DIY Wedding {Hannah + Dustin}

06 24 2015

 

Handmade was the name of the game with this couple. They wanted to put their own personal touches into everything, and create heirlooms that they could use in their future home, not just as wedding decor. The bride made her flower crown and bouquet herself that morning (she is such a beauty — can you believe she didn’t wear any makeup?!). Hundreds of feet of handmade bunting — the white party flags — were strung across beams and branches to give the feeling of a real party. We are so in love with these images from Alex Steele Photography .

From the Bride:

“Planning our wedding was a lot of fun and work that built up the excitement just right. Because we were focused on not having an expensive wedding, we naturally gravitated towards a handmade style, and the involvement of friends and family. This ended up making the reception more fun and beautiful than we had imagined. Parents, grandparents, and siblings all were huge helps before and during the wedding. Holding the reception in my neighbors’ beautiful home and backyard was the icing on the cake for a perfect, memorable day.

One of my favorite parts of the day was surprising Dustin with a song during the reception. I had convinced my family to help me sing “Be My Baby” by the Ronnettes. We broke out the drum machine, with my brother on piano, my sister on cello, myself on lead vocal and violin, and my parents and siblings singing backup. Dustin shed some pretty great tears of joy while I attempted to keep my cool.

Having a photographer that we were good friends with made documenting the day fun and memorable. We felt free to be our goofy selves and take our time with her. Alex made us feel like the Cat’s meooww!

Because of the people involved and the heirlooms we made, we will always remember the love and excitement that made our wedding day perfect for us.”
