Featured Vendor: Michelle Leo Events

We have a lot of favorite Utah wedding vendors. Utah brides are so lucky to have so many talented, creative, and just plain fun vendors to choose from! From wedding design to photography, wedding flowers to the perfect gown, Utah brides have got their pick of the best of the best!

Michelle Leo Events is one of our particular favorites. Her style is impeccable, she herself is a total sweetheart, and her team is absolutely fabulous. Her Utah wedding planning company has won Best of State several years running, and she is the Z Gallerie Designer of the Year! Let’s just say we’d trust her to plan our own wedding any day.

Knowing Michelle’s fantastic sense of style and grace, we were so thrilled to hear about her brand new re-branded, re-launched website, and we couldn’t wait to see all the prettiness we knew she’d have in store for us!

Feast your eyes on these bits of gorgeousness… and if her website is this fantastic, you know her events are impeccable! These are just a few of our favorite pages… (we might be a touch biased!)

Amsale Bridesmaids at Red Cliff Ranch

Nicole chose a gorgeous palette of creams, wheats, and spice orange for her bridesmaids, for her fall wedding at Red Cliff Ranch in Heber City, Utah. The day was designed by master wedding coordinator Mara Marian of Events by LMG, and Mitch of ZumaPhoto was on-hand to grab photos of every perfect detail.

The bridesmaids wore various styles of spice chiffon from Amsale bridesmaids, and the bride donned a lovely v-neck lace sheath wedding dress from Alta Moda Bridal.

L&I Girls: Wildflower Inspiration

Michelle wanted her wedding dress to be simple, playful, and summery. She found the perfect one in this layered chiffon gown from The Dessy Group. It featured delicate spaghetti straps, a ruched empire waist, and layered handkerchief skirt.

For her daughters and bridesmaids, she chose a delicate chiffon flower girl dress in a different bright summery shade for each girl: “sunflower” yellow, “tangerine tango” orange, and “flame” red.

The wedding, designed and coordinated by White Ginger Events, was held at a private rental home in Heber City, and photographed by the ever-talented Jacque Lynn Erickson.

This Just In: New Dessy Twist Dresses

Long or short, you know we love the Twist Dress.

From the original in cocktail length, to the high-low wrap skirt, to the brand new Little Twist Dress, there really isn’t anything we don’t love about these fabulously versatile bridesmaids dresses. Especially the part where they are perfect for travel, come in about two dozen colors, and are absolutely perfect for your honeymoon too.

So imagine our excitement when we discovered that The Dessy Group has introduced even more exciting twist dress variations!

Our favorite classic twist dress is now available with two (yup, we said TWO) new fabric options!

Now you can choose to order the twist in the original matte jersey, or the brand new, slightly-shiny, super lux maracaine jersey.

And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, you have one more option too! You can now opt to order the twist dress with a soft and airy chiffon overskirt!

And (wait for it), you get these gorgeous new options without the lux price tag you might expect. Yup, the new twist dresses are the same great price of the original! (That’s just $154 for the short ones, and $198 for the long length.)

So what are you waiting for? Come order one for each of your bridesmaids, and maybe one (or two…) for yourself!

L&I Girls: Alice in Wonderland at La Caille

Tara’s beautiful Alice in Wonderland themed wedding was simply spectacular.

From the soft tiffany blue bridesmaids dresses to those gorgeous custom shoes for the bride, every detail was perfectly planned out by the adorable bride with the help of the ever-talented Michelle of Michelle Leo Events.

Tara’s bridesmaids wore tiffany blue bridesmaids dresses from Alfred Sung and Aria, accessorized with champagne sashes from Aria. And we absolutely adore the soft white floral fascinators in their hair!
