Meghan and Jake had a lovely ceremony and reception at the Red Cliff Ranch in Heber City, Utah; they got married on 8/18/18. This was probably one of the most popular days to get married this wedding season! Definitely an easy anniversary to remember! Sadly, this was the last season for Red Cliff Ranch to host any events. That being said, Meghan and Jake wanted their wedding day to be especially unforgettable!
Red Cliff Ranch is a beautiful venue and one of my favorites! It is on acres of land with farm animals roaming the meadows and four surrounding lakes. The ceremony was up the road with a beaUTAHful back drop of the Utah red rocks; A lot of guests were from out of town, so this was a very different experience for a lot of them!
For the ceremony, Harvest Moon draped long garland with white blooms along the arch; we also created two ceremony statements that matched their look. I loved this couples style, it tied in with all of the natural elements of Red Cliff and turned out effortless, but also very elegant!
The ceremony was sweet and simple, with a couple of musical numbers added throughout. As soon as the bride and groom said “I do!” the guests headed back down for cocktail hour to begin celebrating!
At cocktail hour, guests were able to sign the guest book and sip on their signature drinks; there was also a sentimental remembrance table for the Bride’s late Mother and Groom’s late Father that was decorated with their favorite flowers: yellow roses and sunflowers. Definitely a thoughtful touch!
My favorite part of cocktail hour was the comfy lounge spaces! These cowboy chic lounge spaces were decorated in faux fur, soft pillows and blankets! The space was cozy and intimate for everyone to enjoy!
Leading up to this wedding, Harvest Moon hand made 150 dream catchers as a fun favor for the guests! We tried to find something we liked enough to buy online, but no luck. So we took it into our own hands to make them DIY style! For the rings, we cut 3″ PVC pipe into small 1/2″ thick pieces, which we then wrapped in yarn. Then we wove the dream catcher netting with wax coated string. And finally, embellished each one with its own beads, feathers, yarn, and string. Each dream catcher was unique. This detail was especially important to the bride as she carried a spiritual theme throughout the entire wedding, in honor of her late Mother and Father-In-Law. The bride thoughtfully incorporated little touches throughout the entire day to honor them both.
For their dinner, they had farm house tables that extended down the stable hall way. Harvest Moon hung garland chandeliers lining down the tables. We added floral and candle light to fill the tables. The table numbers were held in between horse shoes; this couple thought of every detail!
After dinner, guests made there way over to the open-air pavilion for dancing. There were more lounge spaces, fire pits and we hung antler chandeliers to add additional lighting. These antler chandeliers added the right amount of mood lighting to kick off the dance party!
These foam hats were the highlight of the night! Everyone loved them and even wore them home! Howl at the Moon brought the entertainment, the energy never died out with this crowd! Everybody was dancing until the very end for the sparkler sendoff.
It was truly a magical night and a wedding I will never forget! Congrats Meghan and Jake! Thank you for letting us help you with your special day!
