Elaine and Greg walked the aisle in the sizzling summer months in Southern Utah when the sun can create record degrees well over 100. With this in mind, the couple made it a priority to make sure their guests were looked after with every element of their wedding. It’s all in the details for this golf course celebration.
The ceremony took place on the driving range at Sandhollow Resort. This created the perfect red rock backdrop for all their out of town guests to see the beauty that surrounds us daily here in Southern Utah. But since the weather can be hot that time of the year, the bride provided each guest with a wooden fan to help keep them cool. As soon as the ceremony was over, the guests made their way to Sandhollow Resorts clubhouse for the cocktail hour were they were immediately served lime and purple slushes from the wait staff with striped straws to help cool them down before dinner started.
Making sure the wedding was a celebration was a high priority for the bride. She wanted her guests to have a good time with food and dance to make it a true party. To accomplish this, she was fortune enough to have her amazing father work in the food distribution industry. Along with the chef from the Grand America they create a feast of cocktail style comfort foods from mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, chicken skewers, sliders, caprice salad skewers and many other delicious versions of the brides favorite foods. No guest was left hungry with this large food buffet served from the bar.
The second part of their big day to make sure their guests had a true party experience was to get the music playing and the dance floor going. They hire a professional DJ Festival Sounds to accomplish this and tried something a little different here in Southern Utah. Instead of just playing music, Festival Sounds connected the system into to large flat screen televisions in the Sandhollow clubhouse to display music videos of the songs being played. By playing the song and the music video in sync, the energy in the room elevated to a whole different level of fun and created something that has never been done before. And just in case high heels would stop the ladies from dancing, the bride provided flip flops for their guests to use to make sure they were comfortable.
Half way into the night, the second course opened for the guests with the dessert bar full of sweet goodies from brownies, sugar cookies, and chocolate covered strawberries. The desserts were followed by a sparkler first dance out on the balcony
At every turn this wedding thought of their guests and had the element of “what is next?’ for their guests to keep them entertained and enjoying this wonderful couples big day!
