Let me tell you a little something about the Stein Eriksen Lodge: it’s awesome. It’s the kind of place where you can say “I do” against a breathtaking snow-filled backdrop, then celebrate those nuptials with a rockin’ party, dancing ’til dawn totally included. And when it hosts a gorgeous affair like this one captured by Cory Ryan, well… watch out, loves. See so much more right here.

From Cory Ryan Photography… Park City, Utah is such a magical place for a destination wedding photographer (especially a Texas photographer)! On Missy and Garrett’s wedding day, little snowflakes glistened through the sun as they fell from the sky onto the stunning grounds of Stein Eriksen Lodge, making for the most picture-perfect snowy wonderland.
Missy wore a white fur cropped jacket over her dress to stay warm (maybe also with the help of Garrett’s flask of Fireball Whiskey- ha!), while the ladies all had furs in shades of brown to compliment their floor-length plum dresses. Missy also wore her grandmother’s antique sapphire necklace.
The flowers were spiked with green succulents, deep purple calla lilies, and winter berries. Guests were greeted with the stunning snowy mountain views off the Flagstaff Deck, and hand warmers wrapped in burlap bags for the wintery weather. After the sweet ceremony, punctuated with laughs by Garrett’s swinging his Steeler’s Terrible Towel, the festivities moved indoors to the brand new ballroom. The modern floral centerpieces played off the winter bouquet colors, with tones of gold thrown in. Missy and Garrett went straight into their first dance, followed by a very emotional father-daughter dance. The live band and DJ got the party hopping after dinner, and got everyone from toddler twins to grandpa out on the dance floor! It was such an honor to be included in such an amazing day!!! Big congrats Missy & Garrett!

These floral antlers are a necessity on your wall this holiday season. A simple DIY from Floral Design By Erin + Dani Hagemeister along with images by Loblee Photography that combines rustic beauty and pretty blooms. Not in to real antlers? Try adding florals to that faux deer head hanging over your mantel. Trust us, this is a DIY that makes the perfect focal point at your next holiday soiree. For even more crafty inspiration, check out our Holiday Mag out now!
Greenery like Eucalyptus, Ruscus and Viburnum Berries
Florals such as Spray Roses, Lisianthus and Garden Roses
Start with one long stem of greenery. To measure, just place the greenery on top of the antlers, then clip the bottom of the stem at your desired length. Start by adding viburnum berries, lisianthus and spray roses along the greenery stem with floral tape.
Continue adding blooms and filler berries as you go down, saving larger focal blooms, such as garden roses, toward the bottom.
Attach that finished piece to antlers with wire.
Repeat steps 1-3 for the other half of the antlers.
Continue adding blooms to the nearly finished floral antlers with floral tape, wire or adhesive until you’ve reached the desired fullness. Enjoy your newly beautified antlers!

From Garrett of Mood Events…My vision was to create a single décor element that was not only simple and beautiful, but classic and timeless at the same time. Weddings have increasingly become more and more ornate, filled with layers upon layers of beautiful details. But in this instance, I wanted the focus to solely be centered around the bride and groom, with a beautiful floral wreath, and in an environment that only Mother Nature can provide. The only theme used in this photoshoot is that of a circle/oval – the floral wreath, the wreath around the invitation, the simple and delicate wreath on the cake, the bride’s halo, and the amazingly simple and understated groom’s mini-wreath bout made from jasmine vine.
