Just as we have in the past we are thrilled to once again be bringing Utah brides a sneak peek at our favorite local bridal magazine! The fall 2012 issue of SL/PC Bride & Groom is about to hit newsstands & editor Tessa Woolf was kind enough to share some fun insight on the bridal eye candy about to be available! Thanks Tessa!
I’m thrilled to share a special sneak peek inside the pages of our summer/fall 2012 issue with all of you UBB readers, today! This is the third edition of Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom magazine, and we’d like to thank all of our readers and supporters for showing us so much love over the past year and a half. We love you, too!
You may have already seen our new cover when we blogged about it earlier this week, but in case you haven’t here it is again in all its glory! The cover image was shot by Utah’s own Leo Patrone. The talented film photographer hails from Lehi, but is flown all over the world to capture weddings. Lucky for us, though, Leo was in town during our scheduled photo shoot for our “Language of Love” Flowers feature and signed on for the gig.
For the photo shoot, we headed to the newly renovated Washington School House Hotel in Park City. The boutique hotel is luxe beyond belief! The all white decor is accented by dark wood floors, crystal chandeliers, large mirrors, velvet chairs, and marble tables. In another stroke of luck, the hotel was vacant during our photo shoot, so we had the entire place to ourselves. We took over the suite on the top floor of the hotel and went to town photographing our model, Marley, in dresses from Betsy Couture and Lily & Iris while holding beautiful bouquets by Artisan Bloom, Emily Brooks Floral Design, Honey of a Thousand Flowers (pictured in the window shot), and La Fleur (pictured in the apple photo). Honey of a Thousand Flowers’ arrangement of lush English garden roses is the bouquet that landed on our cover! When we saw Leo’s images from the photo shoot, they took our breath away. Saucy & Kitsch lent their killer prop styling skills to the shoot, and hair and makeup guru Gabby Gabbitas kept Marley looking lovely. There are more great shots from this feature–plus fantastic information about the cultural and symbolic meaning behind popular wedding blooms–so be sure to check them out in the magazine.
While our Flowers feature highlights a charming, school house-inspired vibe, our Desserts feature is contemporary and full of color. Lots and lots of color. Remember learning about “Roy G Biv” in elementary school? The color spectrum inspired the bright, vibrant cakes and dessert displays we photographed for this feature, appropriately titled “Rainbow Brights.” From an ombre-hued cake in a pink, peach, and coral color palette to a sunny yellow confection and citrus-themed cupcakes, cake bites, and more, the feature’s sweet spreads are chock full of eye candy. We called upon Sugar Kisses Cakes by Design (pictured in the ombre shot), Cake-A-Licious, Carrie’s Cakes, Midway Country Corner and The Sweet Tooth Fairy (both pictured in the yellow shot), Shuglove, Culinary Crafts, and the design team at Riehl Events to whip up this bold and beautiful feature. It’s sure to satisfy even the sweetest of sweet tooths!
The final sneak peek we’re sharing with you UBB readers today, is from our festive fashion feature titled “Party of Two.” (These are two of my fave shots from the feature!) The shoot was all about fun, party-ready styles (the type of ensembles that will have the new Mr. and Mrs. cutting a rug until the wee hours of the morning), complete with confetti, champagne, a sparkly gold cake, and one pair of glittering Kate Spade heels that had all of us girls oohing and ahhing. We dressed our bride and groom in new designs by Monique Lhuillier (pictured in the confetti shot), Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera (pictured in the “Let’s Party” shot), Anne Barge, Rivini, Watters, Brooks Brothers, and more. It’s all the fashion inspiartion you’ll need to get your own party started!
The summer/fall 2012 issue of Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom hits newsstands on July 3rd, so mark your calendars! Many thanks to Audrey and Megan for today’s guest post AND for lending their own design skills to the pages of our new issue. Yup, the talented duo teamed up to design a sophisticated polka dot-themed table-scape for our Tabletop feature–but you’ll have to pick up a copy to see it! We hope you enjoy the new issue!
