Congrats to Soiree Productions for 10 super stylin' years!!

Oh my, we had a blast last night at Soiree Production's 10th Anniversary party. After all the weddings StellaPosy has worked on with Soiree, it was delightful to be able to be on the receiving end of one of their parties. Sadly, we should have been throwing the party for them.

Lillie, Kristen and Christina treated us to champagne (k, I admit to having a little despite a bun in the oven), hors d'oeuvres (you better believe I just spelled-checked that) by Culinary Crafts, fajitas from Utah Food Services, favor cookies by Lanner's Cookies (which I'm devouring right now) and music by The Salamanders. I also got to play around with my other industry pals in the photo booths provided by FotoCabina and Shutterbooth. I know I may regret posting these photos in all my pregnant glory, but hey, a girl has to cut loose a little after a busy summer of weddings.

Thanks so much to Soiree and congrats!!

This is me and Tessa Wolf, the editor of Utah Bride and Groom Magazine.
Then, here's me with Tessa, Christina Hadlow of Soiree, and Robert Upwall from Every Blooming Thing. Robert confirmed the baby is doing just fine.

Nerd alert! New series on TLC: "Flowers Uncut"

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! This is where I admit to being a total flower nerd. Ready? Ok.

I already have my DVR set for TLC's new docu-series, "Flowers Uncut", featuring Jeff Leatham. Leatham is the Artistic Director for the Four Seasons Hotel and based in George V in Paris. If you've ever visited a Four Seasons Hotel, you can view his bold, structural silhouettes of single flower arrangements on display in their lobbies. These displays literally make my heart skip a beat and my mouth water. Truly stunning!

I can hardly wait to go behind the scenes of Leatham's luxury weddings from around the world! "Flowers Uncut" starts in November on TLC.

(Note: the images above are Leatham designs, not StellaPosy's)

Modern wedding in the Mountains: From NY to PC

Check out this slideshow by Laura Negri Photography.

This August wedding was one of the most spectacular weddings StellaPosy has been a part of, thanks to Lillie Garrido and her team at Soiree Productions. The ceremony was held at the Temple Har Shalom in Park City under a candlelit chuppah with a reception following at The Chateaux at Silver Lake in Deer Valley.

This slideshow provided by Laura Negri Photography will show the layers of detail put into the design of this wedding. While flowers were just a piece of it, Soiree was the conductor of this symphonic event well beyond the 2am close out.

To complement the purple (fig bridesmaids dresses from Vera Wang) and chartreuse palette, StellaPosy provided an all-white bridal bouquet of phalenopsis orchids withwhite freesia and purple calla posies for the 11 bridesmaids. Pin-spotted at the reception were, tall and low centerpieces of dendrobian orchids, submerged cymbidium orchids, globe allium, 'blue' (even though they are actually purple) mokara orhchids, flex grass, and tropical leaves. This was definitely a departure from the rustic weddings we've done in the past. We LOVED the modernity of the designs we did for this wedding!

Approaching Autumn

Brides, when hiring your wedding vendors, the most important quality to look for is that special "click". Hire professionals that you carry a good rapport with and voila, you arrive on your wedding day knowing that you've entrusted the best team to carry out your vision.

I'm not quite sure how it happens, but I get some of the best brides. A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to work with one of the sweetest brides, who wanted just a little hint of fall for her September wedding. For her burnt red/orange and chocolate palette, we used Estelle roses, Flame calla lilies, orange montbresia, Black Magic roses, and fern curls.
