Alate Part 1

From Ginny Au:

Alate: (adj.) having wings; lifted up in flight. Using this beautiful word as my source of inspiration I imagined a gown that was capable of femininity and movement. This stunning Samuelle Couture gown literally took flight on the cliff paired with an exquisite monvieve veil from Ivory & White Boutique. Sarah Winward designed a unruly bouquet of whites and foraged greens to compliment the delicate simplicity of this shoot.

Nubivagant Part 1

This week we’ll be sharing some of the most stunning work we’ve ever seen- all produced at the Erich McVey workshop just a few short weeks ago. We have words from Ginny Au on her inspiration from these shoots.

When designing the vignettes for Erich Mcvey’s workshop in Elk, California I combined the natural beauty of the  environment with ancient words for inspiration. For today’s double feature I used the word Nubivagant, (adj.) moving among clouds. I was inspired by the colors of the ocean at Covey’s Cove using grey and dusty blues in the details paired with simple calligraphy and texture by MK Sadler. Our table scape was understated and peaceful with draped linen for movement and hand crafted porcelain objects. The wild beauty of the florals by Sarah Winward were such an exquisite extension of the untamed beauty of Covey’s Cove.

Private Wedding Venues in Park City, Utah

Whether you’re a Utah resident, or you’re looking for a cozy place for your destination wedding, Park City may just be your place. And if you’ve decided Park City is the destination for you and your family, renting a private home may be the perfect option for your dream wedding!

Renting a private home from Park City Rental Properties is a wonderful alternative to renting a traditional wedding venue for so many reasons. For one, you can take your pick from one of hundreds of stunning homes nestled in the heart of the mountains, and your entire wedding weekend can take place in one area. That means only booking one venue rather than two or three! Imagine your entire family huddled up next to a fire after your rehearsal dinner, waking up early in a home filled with loved ones and getting ready in one of the many bedrooms of the house, and then marrying your best friend with rolling hills and blooming foliage surrounding you.

Another great perk of renting a private home rather than a wedding venue is that you save money! Because you’re only booking one venue as opposed to multiple, you automatically save hundreds or thousands! And your friends and family will save as well because they’ll all have a place to stay nearby. Weddings can get expensive really quickly, so this may be the perfect alternative.

And don’t worry about catering, Park City Rental Properties has will help you find a private chef to prepare all of the delicious food for your wedding. It all sounds wonderful, right? Save a little money, spend extra time with friends and family, and spend more time enjoying your wedding weekend because your’e not forced to travel from venue to venue.
