FunnyFace PhotoBooths- The Canterbury Place's Preferred Vendor!

The Canterbury Place is very proud and excited to announce that FunnyFace PhotoBooths is our newest preferred vendor!
FunnyFace PhotoBooths are great because:
  • They are an interactive experience for your guests. Believe me, people love photo booths and will be talking all night about how much fun they are having. A photo booth is something that will set your event apart!
  • They replace your guest book and favor. Guests take a picture, two copies print out, they keep one and the second one goes in your guest book- super easy
  • They are customizable. From the curtain to the guest book to the photo strips, everything is customized to match your wedding and your personality
  • The booth is beautiful! It enhances the venue and is large enough to fit lots of guests at once. There is an LCD screen on the outside of the booth so guests who aren't inside the booth can see the action!
  • That night you get to bring home your guest book. Your photos will be put online under a password protected site. You will get a CD of high resolution images.
  • Tell them that you are having your event at The Canterbury Place and you will receive $50.00 off your rental!

And the best news of all? FunnyFace PhotoBooth is currently giving a FREE Photo Booth away to a lucky bride and groom! We would love for one of our couples to win, and entering is easy. To find out more info and to enter go to their website here.

Polka Dots and Daisies- New Invitations with The Canterbury Place

As part of The Canterbury Place's Reception Packages, we include invitations (which is so nice for our brides, you just come to The Canterbury Place to design your dream invite and then we we will email you a proof).
One of our preferred vendors, Polka Dots and Daisies, premiered some new invitations at our bridal show this year. We love Polka Dots and Daisies because of their fresh look and the fact that they are so customizable! You can change the color, the font, and even the motif! Every invitation is unique and Mollie (the owner of Polka Dots and Daisies) has designed them so beautifully.
Here is a sneak peek at her new invites for 2010:

If you want more info on Polka Dots and Daisies designs, click here or ask The Canterbury Place for details.
Thank you Lindsay Jane Photography for the beautiful pictures!

Becky and Jeff, Wedding at The Canterbury Place

For all of our spring brides, I wanted to post these gorgeous photos from Becky and Jeff's wedding that was held last May at The Canterbury Place. Becky's colors were pink, green, ivory and black. Her bouquet had a beautiful mixture of pink roses and peonies- perfect for the spring. Stacie (the florist at The Canterbury Place) incorporated cherry blossoms into her large ceremony arrangements that beautifully captured the season and the wedding colors.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the event. For more pictures, make sure to check our website under the Featured Brides section.
Becky and Jeff had a served dinner for 100 guests. The best thing about served dinners? The beautifully set tables before hand.

They had a beautiful indoor ceremony

You can see the blooming wisteria on the gazebo- so pretty! It is a light purple and only blooms once a year.

The gorgeous wedding cake by Ambrosia Exquisite Wedding Cakes (one of our preferred vendors) was inspired by this Martha Stewart cake.
Look at how beautiful the cherry blossoms were as they were leaving!
Thank you to Xpose Photography for the photos

Lindsay and George

I am so excited to be sharing the lovely pictures from this wedding today! We actually showed the wedding video by Nathan Pickett Films here and now we are so excited to have the pictures of this great event at The Canterbury Place!
Lindsay and George had their ceremony and reception here in early November 2009. We worked on planning this event for a year and I loved every minute I spent with Lindsay, George and her mom Jean. They cared about making every detail perfect and it showed- the wedding and reception were amazing.
We actually received a surprise snow storm that day, but it just made the outside pictures that much prettier! Lindsay's colors were plum, rust, and mustard- deep fall tones. The flowers were gorgeous. They were made by The Canterbury Place's florist Stacie. Every arrangement had amazing textures and colors- they were truly breathtaking! For dinner there was a amazing dinner buffet for the many guests. The best part of the evening was the dancing, it was a huge party and everyone had a blast!
I am only posting a few of the pictures on the blog, but check out the rest are on our website under the featured brides section. You will love the pictures, I promise!

New Preferred Vendor: Aesthetic Artistry

Last Thursday we had the privilege of having Terri Anne and Jennae from Aesthetic Artistry come and do a hair and make up demonstration on Elysha (our beautiful model/ wedding planner). Aesthetic Artistry is The Canterbury Place's new preferred vendor for hair and make up.
We were blown away with the amazing job these ladies did! Terri Anne is amazing at the air brush make up and Jennae did a great up-do on Elysha.
Elysha looked amazing! Her cheek bones were defined and her eyes were gorgeous.
They did the demonstration in our Bride's Room. It worked perfectly, especially since they will do on location hair and make-up at The Canterbury Place!
They specialize in total make-overs for brides. From hair-extensions to Terri Anne's own skin care line these ladies will work with you to get your skin, hair, and body perfect for your big day! They work with brides 3-4 months before the wedding, and the results are beautiful!
So if you are looking for someone who will help you look and feel beautiful for your wedding day (or any day, really) please call 801.721.6381 or check out Aesthetic Artistry's website here. They are conveniently located at the Bella Vida Clubhouse 602 S. Edgewood Drive
North Salt Lake City, Utah.
