Parilee and Michael chose the St Regis Hotel in Deer Valley, Park City, Utah for it’s beauty, amazing customer service and the stunning outdoor reception venue on the many terraces. Their elegant, 180-guest mountain fete featured stunning floral design from Decoration Inc and picture-perfect planning by Bluebird Event Destination Management. And of course Mountainside fav, Pepper Nix captured every decadent detail.
Parilee + Michael
Park City, UT
Why a Mountain Wedding?
I grew up spending all of our holidays in Park City. Since my parents moved there, Mike has also gotten to spend a lot of time in the area and has fallen in love with it too.
Wedding day weather
We were worried about rain, but it wound up being a beautiful night!
What were some personal details you incorporated?
The Chinese seal – Yong Jie Tong Xin – was an image that was repeated throughout the event. It means “two hearts, entwined forever” and is also the seal that Mike’s parents used at their wedding!
Talk to me about the decor!
Where did you get the inspiration for your color palette and design? We love nature – hiking, skiing, biking, etc. We wanted our wedding to feel elegant but also to capture the feeling of being outside and part of the landscape.
Favorite ceremony memory
One of my bridesmaids, Christine, is very close friends with both Mike and me. She gave a short speech about us and captured our relationship so well in a great mix of sentiment and humor. The effort and thought that she put into that speech were really special and something that we’ll always remember.
Favorite reception memory
Watching everyone get out on the dance floor. We had people from many parts of our lives there and didn’t know what to expect, but there wasn’t a seat left occupied when the band let loose.
