Fall is right around the corner and before we know it, both temperatures and styles will be cooling off. That’s why we’re so excited to share this chic-yet-cozy wedding in stunning shades of blue. This icy color palette gets a warm upgrade at the ideal city wedding aesthetic venue Lake Effect in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. This modern chic wedding venue sets the stage for our styled shoot featured in Utah Bride and Groom Magazine. In this blog, we’ll cover how to achieve a perfect city wedding aesthetic. This includes wedding party style tips, industrial romantic decor inspiration and delicious food and cocktails. See more below!
As you can see, our grooms absolutely nailed their wedding day looks. They compliment each other’s attire as well as the vibe of their venue and decor. Our grooms paired grey wedding suits with brown accessories that feel cohesive with the venue’s color palette. This Utah wedding venue is a contrast of many different styles. Industrial yet romantic, modern yet rustic, chic yet cozy. If you’re not sure what wedding style to go with, this venue has it all!
Now for something blue, bring in the bridesmaids. Their mismatched blue dresses add a fun pop of color and varying textures add even more stylish elements. Comparatively, keeping the rest of the wedding party attire and wedding reception decor neutral really allowed the blue accents to shine.
With such a beautiful venue like Lake Effect, it doesn’t take much to bring the space to life. The stunning wine cellar with floor to ceiling glass serves as the perfect backdrop for a romantic and cozy dinner. Our friends at Decoration Inc. kept the centerpieces fairly simple in favor of a dramatic hanging floral installation. Not only does it draw the eye upwards towards and frame the table, but it allows guests to interact without distracting centerpieces. The mixture of light and airy blooms and ferns feels balanced against the deep wood of the wine cellar.
Additionally, neutral florals and copper flatware add more layers of interest without feeling overwhelming. To achieve a city wedding aesthetic, be sure to highlight urban elements of the space such as the concrete floors and high ceilings. However, to avoid your decor feeling harsh or cold, incorporate soft and romantic elements to keep the vibe balanced and comfortable. For example, the modern wedding cake designed by Salt Lake City’s cake. featured geometric patterns, pops of copper to tie in the tabletop decor, and white flowers and gauzy leaves within its layers to add some softness.
The star of the show at this downtown restaurant is the food and drinks. Lake Effect creates delicious handcrafted cocktails paired with fine modern cuisine. No matter the size or style of your wedding, there’s a good chance Lake Effect has a space to fit your needs. This historic building has five different private event spaces that can host anything from an intimate dinner party for 30 to a wedding reception of 250. Even better, every room will compliment your city wedding aesthetic flawlessly.
If food and drink is at the top of your wedding priority list, Lake Effect is the perfect choice. Their eclectic, modern, fine dining menu is sure to please all of your guests.
