Southern Utah Wedding Showcase: Booth Planning

Every year when it comes time for the showcase I always have a inner dilemma.

Do I:

1- Design a booth that would appeal to what most of my brides are currently doing for their weddings that year?

2- Design a booth that is different. Something I would put in my home?

I’ve decided on #2.:)

I went with something I would put in my home. In fact, many of the items in my booth are also the items that will be going in my nursery as soon as the showcase is over as I take a break and get ready for baby girl to make her arrival in March.

So I decided to give a little sneak peak of what my booth will be looking this like year. Black, white and gold with pops of colors in floral. Gold foil prints, industrial items and what would it be without a great piece of lighting.

Make sure to some see us at the showcase. We are back by the stage.

West Elm Inspired Shoot

Inspiration for your wedding can come from all places. Favorite colors, movies, fashion and interior design, to name a few. Find what inspires you and don’t be afraid to incorporate that element into your wedding day to create something totally unique to you. These gorgeous pictures from AK Studio Design show off how inspiration can come from anywhere.

I was inspired to create this look from popular elements in home décor she wanted to bring to the wedding scene. The use of bold pops of color in the red, yellow and orange floral by Bloomers make a striking focal point on the table, sure to impress you guests. Mixed in with the teal bold prints in the rug and rustic wooden accents from the table, this shoot brings a unique and different approach to décor than what you typically see at a wedding.

Just like in interior design mixing colors, patterns and textured elements create a depth to any set up making it unique to you and your style. Don’t be afraid to design your wedding after what inspires you most.

Every Little Detail

Brittani was such a fun bride and I am grateful I had the chance to plan her wedding! She was laid back, had great style and was so easy to work with.


Brides like her make my job so easy and enjoyable!


Brittani and Xaviers wedding took place at the Ledges at Entrada. Their guests were a blast and danced the night away and the bride and groom made sure all the details were cover to ensure their guests had an amazing time from fans and umbrellas for the ceremony, a made to order ice cream bar after dinner and a full candy bar while dancing.

At every turn the guests had something else to look forward too.

Congratulations to the both of you! xo

Down to the Last Detail {Brittani & Xaiver} | Southern Utah Wedding Photography

We are so excited to show off this gorgeous wedding planned and designed by Julie from Middle Aisle, who is also a member of the St George Weddings Design Team!

This wedding was so full of beautiful details and so get ready for picture detail overload. The Ledges at Valderra is such an amazing location and Julie was able to bring together a fun vibe along with classy touches to complement the gorgeous venue. Coral and navy blue are such a fun color palette and with touches of white and gold everything came together so beautifully. Bloomers did an amazing job with the floral and from the larger arrangements, to the brides gorgeous bouquet, to small details throughout the reception, the flowers are such a highlight. We also are totally in love with the charming and vibrant paper details that were such a perfect addition to this wedding.

Every detail of this wedding was truly stunning!

What’s a Mock Up?

What is a mock up? What’s the idea behind a mock up?


I LOVE a good mock up. A mock up is a general set up of how something will look. I believe most prep work should be done before a wedding, allowing you more time for any hiccups that may need to be attended to on the wedding day.

Can you imagine showing up with boxes of candy and candy jars hoping it will just all come together? Why leave it up to chance. I like to be sure it will turn out perfect and all I have to do is show my amazing assistants the mock up picture and they can set it up from there.

The problems are worked out. It’s flawless and creates less stress.

What other items can you imagine a mock up is good for?
