Wow! A new venue in Deer Valley: St. Regis Deer Crest

With every new client, there a chance to create something unique. That's what makes me passionate about my job. There's never a dull day in my studio because we're constantly thinking of new ideas, new designs, new architecture, new color palettes, new vignettes, and so on. So when I get a chance to design within a new space, I'm bursting with excitement!

Enter the St. Regis at Deer Crest in Deer Valley. I visited the site about 6 weeks ago and received a hard hat (yes, hard hat and goggles) tour. With the amount of construction left to be done, I could not believe that they were planning on having their ribbon-cutting by the beginning of ski season. No way, I thought to myself.

And sure enough, it was. Today I visited to see the completed resort and wow, it is truly a one-of-a-kind resort in Utah. Not only was I envisioning myself skiing up to their "Beach" this winter for an apres-ski drink, but I was also imagining all the florals I could use for summer weddings. Check it out!

Thanks for a great party, Alta Moda!

Thanks to Hilary and her team from Alta Moda Bridal for putting together another fabulous Christmas Party. While I get to see other wedding industry pros throughout the event season, I never get a chance to say more than "Hi!" while we're all making rushed preparations on the event day. These soirees provide the much needed time to mingle and enjoy each others' company.

It was a pleasure catching up with Pepper Nix of Pepper Nix Photography, Mitch Burt of ZumaPhoto, Tessa Wolf of Utah Bride and Groom Magazine and Michael Lucarelli, celebrated classical guitarist.

Even more exciting was being introduced to wedding bloggers Meghan and Audrey from and photographer, Jacque of Jacque Lynn Photography.

Oh, by the way, if you're in the market for a wedding dress, take your family and friends with you to Alta Moda to enjoy their newly renovated VIP dressing room.

Here's a shot of me with Hilary (left) and Tessa (right).
