Who here is a forever fan of white and green barn weddings? We are, always! And if you love the idea of a rustic venue surrounded by nature but want to keep it glamorous and formal, Nora + Andrew’s wedding is sure to inspire. They met in college in Wisconsin and now live in New York, so their Utah wedding at Blue Sky Ranch in Park City was a destination for everyone. With that in mind, Soireé Productions and Decoration Inc. helped them show off the beauty of the location while adding touches of glam throughout (prime example: this Marchesa gown. ‘Nuff said). Thanks to Cork Creative for sending these photos our way!
Nora tells it, We were going for rustic elegance. I don’t love a lot of bright color so we kept everything very natural and understated—lots of whites and greens with a touch of blush. All my bridesmaids wore their own blush dresses and the groomsmen wore navy suits with blush ties. We used a lot of wild flowers and didn’t over-decorate outside so we could let the beautiful scenery speak for itself.
When it came to the flowers, Nora wanted them to look like they were just picked off the mountains behind them. Mission accomplished!
Nora walked down the aisle to Flowers In Her Hair by The Lumineers and their first dance was to Coming Home by Leon Bridges.
Once we decided to have a destination wedding, it was very important to us to make sure our guests really felt like they were in Utah. I actually discovered Blue Sky Ranch on Instagram and quickly took note that it’s on the same property as the High West Whiskey Distillery (Andrew’s forever favorite drink!), so that immediately got us both intrigued. As soon as we saw the outdoor patio (where our ceremony and cocktail hour took place), we immediately knew it was the perfect venue.
Rustic barn wedding perfection.
They served all farm-to-table food from local Utah farms and liquor that was distilled just up the road.
We had a lot of fun decorating the inside of the barn our reception was held. For the tables, we had lots of greens running down the long tables with candles, bud vases and smaller arrangements scattered throughout. It was really important to me for everything not to look too manicured. Decoration Inc. helped us create a very organic look which was perfect! My favorite element inside was the beautiful dance floor chandelier. We covered the ceiling above the dance floor with an iron chandelier with lots of greens running through. We also covered the rafters of the barn with string lights and lot of glass globes. It was stunning and a dream come true!
So dreamy! Congrats to Nora + Andrew!
