In planning my wedding we had a few goals in mind first to have a unique reception place located central for all of our traveling guest and something that screamed us! We found the perfect location at the Salt Lake City County Building The price was only $500 for the entire building all night and if there is not an event the night before the staff invites you to come early and set up!
We chose Aggie blue and champagne for our colors with hints of tan, black and light blues. With the red in the wall color and the iron stairwells our colors blended well. Arranged our food table became the main center piece of our reception. With chocolate fountains at three of the four ends and drink were located at two smaller tables on each hall.
The backdrop behind us was easy to make and put up. We took our 40% off an item to Jo-anns and bout ten yards. Ultimatum I wanted to hang some similar outside with our initials on it but with the sun setting fast in the winter no one would see it.

Being on a tight budget and with a desire to learn to cook new foods, I feel like it's hard to try new things because I don't want to spend a lot on new ingredients.In going to the farmers market I found an expensive way to try new foods. With three dollars in my pocket I came back with a zesty melon, patty pan squash and fresh basil. With the patty pan squash I found a recipe on cooks.com, it was easy, simple and so good to eat! With our basil we made basil chicken, this was an epic recipec for our taste buds I highly recommend for dinner tonight!
