Planning a Honeymoon? If you're in Utah, you don't have to go very far. With so much to see in this beautiful state, your honeymoon adventure can literally be right around the corner. For this honeymoon series, we plan on showing the finer side of Utah and the benefits of keeping your special getaway local. With summer weddings just around the corner, Park City is the perfect destination to celebrate your new marriage. With winter traffic out of the picture, hotel rates drop to outstanding lows, and gives the newly wedded couple the opportunity to enjoy a 5 Star Honeymoon on a 3 Star budget.
Spend your first two nights in wedded bliss at the historic and tastefully remodeled, Washington School House Hotel. A boutique style bed and breakfast offers an intimate setting to be whisked away to after the reception. Offering in room massage, complimentary gourmet breakfast, heated pool and spa, outdoor fireplace, private chef, and private dining just to name a few of the amazing amenities.
Another fun detail about Washington School House is that the property is only a quick walk to Historic Main Street. With unique local boutiques, 5 Star dining, and extraordinary nightlife; you are sure to be entertained.
Your first day can be spent walking Historic Main Street. With art galleries, a museum, unique boutiques, book shops, and candy stores; you will both be entertained for hours. Stop for lunch at Zoom, Robert Redford's famous restaurant; a lunch menu offers the same vibrant atmosphere at half the cost.
The nightlife in Park City is unlike any other in Utah. With a variety of restaurants, bars, and clubs. For dinner you can go casual and find the best tasting pizza in town at Red Banjo. Make sure to ask for a slice of lemon on your pizza. Or if you are feeling for a more romantic atmosphere, Chimayo is a quick step away. Follow up with drinks at the Sky Blue Rooftop Lounge.
Now that you have a feel for all that Park City has to offer, spend your next day relaxing by the pool and enjoying one another's company.
The next four nights of the Honeymoon can be spent in pure luxury at the Waldorf Astoria.
If you can bring yourself to leave the property, there are more adventures to be had in Park City.
Mountain Body Spa
Hot Air Balloon
Zipline at Olympic Park
Dog Sled Tour
Once you have explored the ins and outs of Park City, I would highly recommend making the twenty minute drive to Midway's Homestead Resort. You can play a round of golf, get competitive at a match of tennis, or if you are feeling really adventurous, take a scuba diving lesson at The Crater; a natural geothermal spring.
Rates may vary depending on season, but this week long 5 Star Honeymoon can be enjoyed for just over $3,000. The great thing about Park City, is there is so much to see and do, that a second vacation may be in order.
Have a fabulous Honeymoon!
Thank you Amanda from The Brides' Shop for the blog and these honeymoon ideas!
Today, I’m so excited to share this lovely blog that Angela, the Blog Diva from Culinary Crafts sent me! You are going to love it...
This wedding was held at our downtown Salt Lake City venue, The Tasting Room and catered by Culinary Crafts! Bursting with whimsical details, pretty touches, and fab food, this wedding was so much fun! Check it out!
We loved that the guests were greeted with the photo guest book table! Not only a fun way for your guests to drop you a line, but a great way to make sure you get a picture of all of the fabulous friends and family that celebrated the day with you!
The oversized “LOVE” signage topped of with colorful balloons was another fun touch! We love the pairing of these details with the neutral burlap linens. It really adds a sense of balance and warmth to the event.
The ceremony set up was so pretty with the lovely handmade bunting and those beautiful fruitwood chivari chairs! Another great mix of elements that created a great overall feel.
Check out these AWESOME cakes! I love that the wedding cake topper was a zombie-fied version of the bride and groom – And how cool is the vintage VW bug groom’s cake? Such great attention to detail (the license plate says JSTMRD) and those cans are just so cute!
This wedding was chock full of delicious eats – starting with the appetizers! The guests were treated to an assortment of Lemon Marinated Tortellini and Sun-dried Tomato Skewers, Bruschetta with Roasted Artichoke and Gorgonzola, and Ahi Tuna Tartare in Won Ton Cone. YUM!
So many fun details! From the cute, pink dachshund escort cards, the tiny Maker’s Mark favors, to the shimmery gold table numbers – this wedding had so many things that showed off this couple’s personality! Love it!
This is one of my favorite Culinary Crafts’s summer salads – which you can find a recipe for here. We plated this beautiful Balsamic Marinated Watermelon Salad with Crushed Pistachios and pre-set it for the guests so when they were invited to sit down for dinner, they were welcomed with this pretty and refreshing salad!
Love this buffet! It was full of seasonal favorites like Fresh Fruit & Berries, Fresh Green Beans with Lemon and Toasted Almonds, and Pommes Anna!
They couple also chose to served Grilled Hawaiian Butter Fish with Rhubarb Compote and Balsamic Strawberries, Carved Pepper-Crusted Prime Rib with Cilantro Lime Aioli and Charred Tomato Salsa, Crispy Onion Straws, and Filly Frisee Watercress and Baby Lettuce Salad with Beets, Goat Cheese and Walnuts with Lemon Walnut Vinaigrette. Seriously, so DELICIOUS!
We loved this wedding and loved all of the personal touches that the couple added. Not to mention, The Tasting Room was the perfect venue! Thank you so much to Jessica & Solomon for letting us help them with this AMAZING day!
