Lauren and Johnny had planned a large wedding before the pandemic hit. Rather than waiting, they opted to cut back on their guest list. They hosted a Utah Backyard Garden Wedding celebration with just their bridal party, families, and closest friends. They scaled back on their guest count. But they opted to keep all of the details they had been planning for their day. We transformed the bride’s parents yard with hundreds of bistro lights, several large scale floral installations, and romantic rentals. This elevated the space but created an inviting garden atmosphere. It was the perfect setting for a Utah Backyard Garden Wedding.

The Details

Ink & Press Co. created the most stunning custom invitation suite. It was complete with blue envelopes, a custom monogram, and vintage stamp set. She used the same magnolia floral sketch in her

Utah Backyard Garden Wedding Ceremony

Lauren and Johnny were wed in an intimate ceremony under an lush floral arch in front of their family and friends. Guests were given a light blue paper fan to help with the summer heat and were serenaded by classic jazz music before and after. After the ceremony, guests were invited to a cocktail hour. Their catering team, Blended Table, served pre-plated bite sized hors d’oeuvres. This allowed guests to enjoy appetizers in a more socially distanced way than a traditional passed hors d’oeuvres.

After cocktail hour, guests were invited to the garden space to enjoy dinner and dancing. Instead of choosing one type of cuisine, the couple opted to serve all of their favorite foods. We had everything from sushi and noodles, to pasta and sliders! Dessert was an impressive 3-cake display and house made gelato – the perfect cool treat for a warm summer night.

The guests enjoyed the night under the lights and they danced and celebrated as family.
