Kirtland Country Club Wedding | Bennett & Olivia

We actually first met this couple, Olivia and Bennett, at her sister’s wedding. It’s fun to work with the same family for multiple weddings.  I like seeing how each wedding is different and how it often reflects the couple’s personalities and taste!  This wedding was so very unique and also very beautiful like her sister’s, but totally different at the same time!  Olivia’s Moring preparations began at a gorgeous Kempton Hotel “apartment/condo”.  So much space for all her bridesmaids and family and lots of pretty light and views of downtown.

From the Kempton we all headed to St. John Cathedral for their wedding ceremony.  When the bridesmaids started coming up the aisle everyone was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful, flowered dresses that each girl wore, but nothing could have prepared them for the unique and stunning gown that Olivia wore!  All the “wows, awes” and comments of approval were heard throughout the church.  Olivia’s Monique Lhuillier dress was a hit!

Olivia and Bennett’s wedding reception was held at the Kirtland Country Club . When you first arrived at the club, guest were greeted by a lush, flowered arch.  Upon entering the small lobby there was a table with greenery and more greenery also draping from the lights above. Guest were directed to the right for the patio cocktail hour.  The reception was a garden party!  Everything was as if the guest had walked into a beautiful garden.  The guest were welcomed with a bottle of SanPellegrino that was tagged with their set assignment.  There was also alcoholic popsicles and different garden drinks to enjoy while listening to live music.

After cocktails, everyone made their way into the dinner room that was completely decorated from floor to ceiling with greenery & colorful flowers.  Even the chairs (from Borrowed Curated) had wicker details that matched the wicker place settings perfectly.  The tables were gorgeous!  Now let’s talk about that showstopping cake!  It was absolutely stunning with pressed flowers covering every inch and the way it was also elevated with even more flowers below it was amazing!  It was so beautiful and by White Flower Bakery! And of course, the amazing and over-the-top flowers were by our friends at Plantscaping and Blooms!

After dancing the night away with a live band, the evening ended with a fabulous fireworks show and an ice cream truck!  This was one of those weddings that guest were thankful they got an invite for sure!  So many unique and fun details to enjoy for everyone.  But the best thing about this day was that Bennett, Olivia and their families were just so wonderful to work with!  What a beautiful day!  Thank you for having us at your garden party!
