a tea party

We were lucky enough to host Clara's Tea Party this past weekend and what a magical event for aspiring ballerina's. Miniature sandwiches were served with treats, the nutcracker story was read by Uncle Drosselmeyer next to the crackling fire, giggling little girls were able to meet Clara and get pictures with her, and then they finished the day by making a crown to take home. Many little girls went home excited for Nutcracker season!

not just for weddings...

Sometimes I dream about what I would do if I had my wedding reception (again), how I would do my hair, the flowers I would have, the dress I would wear, the way my guests breath would catch as the entered my reception..... Sigh..... my reception was very grand but it was soooo six years ago and the style now is so much better! :)

Who says you can't throw a fantastic birthday party set up with your favorite colors, grand centerpieces filled with tulips, a buffet set up with warm soups and baskets spilling with rolls, a band playing dancing music, who says I can't go get my hair done and have some amazing pictures and decorate for the birthday (insert you event of choice anniversary, Christmas party, dinner party, etc.)and have a video playing of me and my family? Well, heres a revolutionary thought, your next big event go all out. Have your dream party. Why not? Have your party here and let us help your dreams become a reality. If not a grand party why not have a fun family photo shoot? Just recently Matt Butler,a very talented videographer , did a fun family video here. If anything its worth it to have your kids captured while their young. Check out his video at the link below.

I met with an adorable couple a few days ago and as we were touring the grounds I asked "How did you hear about Wadley Farms?" to which they replied,

"We did a search on the internet for the best wedding venues in the area and Wadley Farms was on the list at #1".

Later that day I did a search and sure enough they were correct; Wadley Farms is listed at #1 on the Top Ten Wedding Venues in the Salt Lake Area of Utah! If I do say so myself, this Kali K. does have impeccable taste! Below is what Kali K. has said about Wadley Farms.

#1 - Wadley Farms

35 East 400 North, Lindon, Utah 84042

(801) 404-9996

"Wadley Farms...I sigh every time I think of this venue. Though it is located all the way out in Lindon, Utah (which honestly is only about 15-20 minutes from Salt Lake City), it is absolutely worth the drive. The views and overall feel of the venue is just amazing. You walk through the wooden and stone gates to follow along a stone path towards a garden setting and a gorgeous house full of ivy, flowers, and trees. This venue was built in the 1860's and you can just feel the history as you enter. They have numerous garden areas, a gazebo, and at night they light the exterior with white lights. There is over 20 acres of farm, gardens, and grassy areas. I have been to this venue now four times and any time a Bride tells me their wedding is at Wadley Farms I get excited. I love this place. If I were to have a wedding, this would be without a doubt, my venue. The staff is more than helpful. Parking is free and easily accessible. This venue can be used for any season. I have been there for winter, spring and summer weddings. Each time the venue just seems to transform and fit perfectly to the snow, spring breezes, or even the heat of summer. The owners take great care in this venue and the couples that rent it out. Many of their packages include tables, centerpieces, backdrops and lights, chairs, and even linens. Wadley Farms does allow you to even bring in your own food if you wish to cater your event yourself. A laid back staff that allows you to just have your day, your way. This is what makes any venue my Top #1."

Jessica and JT October 14th

Sigh..... fall is so romantic and Jessica and JT's reception was no different. They were lucky enough to be our first guests to enjoy the views up into the balcony. It really takes your breath away as you enter and gaze up into grand beams and delicate spinning fans (sorry getting carried away). The guests enjoyed cozy fireplaces, delicious caramel apples, strawberries, and an assortment of pies. I love the chalkboard with the pie menu idea! I also really liked the favor of honey; I've never seen this before but absolutely love the idea! This event was truly unique to Jessica's and JT's style which made the night extra special.

This is what you see as you enter the Barn now. WOW!

Mckenzie and Alex September 23rd

It's all about the details. Millie Garrett, the wedding planner and florist, did an amazing job with this event. From the strands of pearls draped in the gazebo to the gem encrusted dragonflies on the plants, no detail was spared. Moon Light lighting design team created an elegant canopy of Chinese lanterns and Italian bistro lights that draped across the night sky. Lori Esteban laid out an array of gourmet wedding cakes and Wedding Ice completed the package with frozen treats. This was one of the most beautiful weddings I have seen. My camera and photography skills do not do it the justice that it deserves.

They had vintage hats and coats for guest to dress up in for a photo booth.

Unfortunately I took these pictures at the end of the night after clean up so the linens and centerpieces are gone, however you get the idea of the lights at night.
