Sundance Film Festival 2011

Last weekend I attended the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT.  It was so much fun and I can't wait for next year!  For those of you who don't know, Sundance Film Festival was started in 1981 by Robert Redford.

  He wanted to create a place for filmakers to get away from the pressures of filmmaking and realize what they are really doing it for.  By being in the mountains of Utah, they were able to explore their creativity and discover ways to express their art and films.  The little busy town of Park City hosts the event every year.  There was always something going on and just walking up and down the streets you are bound to find something that will excite you. 

One of my favorite places to eat each time I'm in Park City would be "The Eating Establishment".  The food is amazing and the management is awesome!  We always sit in the cozy window booth and enjoy a fantastic meal!

There is also a lot of fun shopping and boutiques all around.  One of my favorite's is Mary Jane's.

If you need new boots while in Park City, this is the place to go.  They are always having fun events to make the shopping experience unique.  From appetizers and drinks to free eye brow waxing, this boutique is so much fun! Check them out and add their blog!

Park City also offers all the typical winter events as the 2002 Winter Olympics were held here.  Make sure and check out Olympic Park, where you can enjoy watching the skiers train.  They also have rides available to the public on the zipline, the bobsled trail and my favorite the Alpine slide.   The gorgeous ski hills are all tucked around the city and offer so many options.  And if you don't want to stay at one of the resorts, Salt Lake City is only 20 minutes away.  

The weekend was awesome and the Film Festival was exciting.  I'm already planning my trip for next year!

Bridal Fair 2011

So it's been a busy holiday and getting everything all ready for the new year has taken a little bit of work. But we are so excited for a bunch of changes for the new year! We are excited to start a few new segments on our blog, one of which will be "The Weekend Update". So... this weekend I went to the Bridal Fair. It was a lot of fun and I met a lot of really fun people!

"A Day to Adore" This was one of my favorite photographers at the fair.  Her site is awesome too so go check her out.  Her portfolio is full of engagement and wedding photos, portraits for family, baby and senior shots and lots lots more!  They also do prints for all of the announcements and invitations.  Her and her husband are extremely talented and I'm so jealous of their studio!!

I met a really nice guy named Dusty at Elegance in Chocolate, who sells and rents chocolate fountains.  These are such a fun and delicious idea for a wedding or any event.  This was definitely a hit at the fair!

Harts Tux & Gown
We can't forget about Hart's and their gorgeous dresses and tux selection.  Everytime we've gone in to their store they are so friendly and easy to work with.  They have always gone above and beyond to help us out over there! Check out their new website too! Thanks guys!!!

Mainstream Music
These DJ's really know how to party, they are always at the bridal fairs and always do a great job with their displays.  The employees are very professional and nice to talk to.  They have plenty of experience and great prices!

There were a ton of booths and so many to talk to! I'm really excited for the next Bridal Fair coming up in February to talk to everyone I missed!
