The wedding was held at Le Jardin in Utah. Le Jardin is a garden center with a series of green houses that they hold weddings and receptions in. Each green house is filled with beautiful foliage and colorful flowers.
It makes for a spectacular background to your wedding. It's a great way to have an 'outdoor' wedding feel while being indoors. With Utah's ever changing weather you never can tell if you're going to get rained or snowed on so Le Jardin was a perfect fit for Heather and Joe's hawaiian themed wedding.
Several water fountains frame the green house and really add to the ambiance.
After the sun sets the green house is lit by thousands of sweet little twinklie lights.
What I love about Le Jardin is that they handle all the decorations.....
...but they don't require that you use their caterer. I think it's nice to have the option to bring in your own food and serve what you want.
Heather's mom made all the food, an undertaking that requires you to be Super Woman, I'm sure. But she's a great cook and everything was so good. Among the food, she served sushi and these yummy chocolate eclairs.
The cake had chocolate seashells and fresh flowers on it:
The serving area- I love the pergola!
The ceremony was held underneath this beautiful gazebo:

Joe's cute neice was the flower girl:
Several members of Heather's family flew in from Hawaii for the ceremony. Each guest was given a hawaiian flower for their hair as they entered the reception area. Myself and the other bridesmaid wore lei's instead of carrying bouquets.
Heather looked radiant!
The ceremony went smoothly and everyone was able to enjoy the rest of the evening together.
Congrats Heather and Joe! We love you!
