The Best of Bountiful Award!

The Canterbury Place is excited to announce that we won the Best of Bountiful 2009 award for Decoration Service! We are beyond thrilled to win this award and are excited that we have been recognized for helping bride's create beautiful weddings.

Because we won this great award, I thought I would show our blog readers a few of my favorite weddings where the decorations were truly amazing and captured the bride's inspiration.

Irma's wedding colors were strictly ivory. She wanted everything elegant and I think that we achieved it! All of the linens were crushed pearl with compact centerpieces of lilies and hydrangea. The only thing not ivory in her wedding were the red rose petals down the aisle for the ceremony (very romantic). Other ceremony decorations included draped silk organza with floral arrangements on the aisle chairs and topping off the beautiful arch in the courtyard with a spray of lilies.

Mandy's wedding was all about the inspiration. She brought in pictures of everything that she wanted to achieve and we executed her ideas into reality. Mandy actually rented in square tables to create a strong geometric look. The linens were absolutely beautiful- the satin chocolate toppers with cranberry satin runners and folded napkins were the perfect pops of color against the ivory linen base and organza chair sashes. All of her flowers were reds, browns, and ivories except her bouquet which were soft peaches (and one my favorite bouquets of all time)! Her ceremony chairs were accented with flower pomanders that were later moved into the dining hall as decoration on the sconces. My favorite decorative element were the amazingly full centerpieces. They were so pretty and the perfect combination of textures.

Maria's wedding was actually themed- a pear theme to be exact. This one was executed very tastefully; all of the colors in the linens (a beautiful gold brocade), flowers, and attendants attire reflected the golds and greens in pears. The guestbook was a pear jar with notes on why Mark and Maria were the "perfect pair." The cake had beautiful dogwood and sugar pears and the centerpieces were golden pears (which the guests really enjoyed eating)!

Tracey's wedding colors were plum, lavender, and black and her look was modern dramatic. She came in with pictures of how she wanted to decorate the arch- we were worried about the lanterns swaying in the wind, but they ended up being the perfect backdrop for the ceremony and pictures afterwards. For her place cards, she had two large manzanita branches with crystals and mini Chinese lanterns with the place cards hanging from ribbon. The dining hall had beautifully dramatic black ceiling swags with the monochromatic Chinese lanterns. The satin plum sashes were the perfect pop against the black linens and the centerpieces were a mini version of the place card arrangements.

We are proud of every wedding at The Canterbury Place! If you need any advice on adding that extra special, unique something, please don't hesitate to call and ask us! 801.292.5053
