Often times it is difficult for a bride to envision what her perfect day might look like. She has gathered in-numerous Pinterest images over the past few months, and now, as she scrolls through the images, she realizes that her dream wedding has morphed. Her dream has evolved from light and airy in the early planning stages (Winter), when all of her friends were having white and blush weddings, to bright and fun in the Spring, and back to subdued as Fall rolls around and the leaves are changing color. She had no idea the seasons, her friends, and her mood would affect her planning in this way! Trying to make sense of it all and decide on one thing seems overwhelming. The bits and pieces just aren't fitting together. But what if she could go to an event where a mock wedding was already set up; where vendors were on-site to guide and help her; where she could visually see a wedding come to life?! Well that's what happened at the Above The Salt Event hosted by @utahvenuemarket. A myriad of talented vendors put on a mock wedding and allowed potential Utah brides to walk into that wedding, see the vision come to life, and ask any questions they wanted! It was pretty magical. The stately setting of the Church and State 1893 building with those tall ceilings, gorgeous stained glass windows, and original brick was a great backdrop and setting for a wedding.
Vendors like Danani Handmade whose unique, one-of-a-kind headdresses and veils always wow guests. The amazing Haley Nord provided professional photography at the event. And delicious tastings from Du Soleil Catering (oh my word everything was so yummy), accompanied by sweet, whole treats from Cupcakes by Kasthuri. Brides were even able to try on and fit dresses from Natalie Wynn Designs! It was as if each bride were a princess for just a day and it was the perfect way for brides to see a real wedding vision come to life!!
