Utah Bride and Groom

Mountainside Romance: Erin and Joe

The Couple

Erin and Joe met as neighbors while they were both living in Texas. Unbeknownst to them at the time, they went to college at each other’s hometown. As they went on dates, they realized that they could have met years ago and were inseparable ever since.

After getting married, they decided to move back to Utah together to take advantage of their love for the outdoors and to be closer to family and friends.

The Wedding

Enlisting the help from Soirée Productions, Erin and Joe held their romantic mountainside nuptials at the St. Regis at Deer Valley in Park City.

Kristin Spear, from Soiree Productions, commented, “We were lucky to be involved from the get go. Erin and Joe had a clear vision and we helped them take it a step further. Together, we expanded some of their wedding ideas to include details like an escort table, a string quartet, and chandeliers in the reception tent.”

Erin also added a few personalized touches to the wedding by incorporating her family’s Celtic cross in the ceremony and the bagpipes to celebrate her Scottish roots.

The Mood

One of their favorite things about living in Utah is the breathtaking scenery. They really wanted their wedding to exude the romance and quiet elegance that can be found in nature.

“They not only wanted their day to reflect their love for one another but also incorporate their love of nature. As we planned, they picked out elements of their wedding that would showcase this,” noted Kristin. “We thought it’d be a great idea to incorporate a clear tent for the reception space. Not only did it incorporate more nature into the reception but also provided their guests with protection from the elements.”

The Menu

St. Regis’s brilliant catering team provided the wonderful plated dinner for Erin and Joe’s special day. But when it came to cake, they decided to go one step further. The couple wanted something nontraditional with their wedding cake. They asked Carrie’s Cakes to make five smaller cakes of some of their favorite flavors so guests would have an assortment to chose from.
