A lavish wedding at La Caille in Sandy Utah.

There are very few Utah wedding venues that provide the view and experience that La Caille offers its couples. Nestled among twenty acres, and located at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon, La Caille’s scenic views of the Wasatch Mountains create an unforgettable backdrop for an extraordinary wedding day. The venue originally opened as a restaurant in 1975 with country-French charm. Much of the original charm of the venue still exudes a dash of the French countryside, but it’s now paired with an experience befitting a lavish wedding day. In fact, the cuisine offered at a La Caille wedding is either grown on the property or sourced locally.

For an added flair of charm, there is a resident peacock roaming the grounds. You can catch a glimpse of him, in full display, on the day of your wedding. Altogether, if those key points weren’t enough to convince you to plan your wedding at La Caille, the magnificent sprawling grounds are available to you on your wedding day to plan a first look, your wedding day portraiture, or your family formals.

Influenced by their heritage and culture, Golshan and Latif planned a wedding at La Caille with classical styling, and impeccable design and decor. I was overjoyed to work with the wedding professionals that Golshan and Latif hired to bring their wedding day vision to life. Having worked with them all so closely in the past, I have come to know and appreciate their level of professionalism and detail. 

The view at La Caille is unforgettable, the cuisine is delectable, and the venue is majestic in every way.

At first glance, Goshan’s wedding dress may appear as if it were a traditional ball gown. But, the gown moved beautifully and revealed an intricately detailed embroidered design. Golshan’s wedding day look was topped with a sparkling pearl-encrusted cathedral-length veil, and she looked like royalty with every step she took.

Aside from the lavish styling of their wedding day and the unforgettable wedding venue, Golshan and Latif’s day infused the traditions of their culture in a fun way that involved their guests. Correspondingly, the bride and groom took to the dance floor as they were showered by their guests with a dollar dance.  But, before the real party began, Golshan was whisked away to the bridal suite to change her attire. From a fairytale ballgown to a chic and stylish reception dress. Golshan was dressed for the evening in a puff-sleeve gown with delicate watercolor flowers emblazoned on the silk.

She and Latif were prepared to cut their four-tier wedding cake, but not before another tradition took place. The bride and groom were “teased” with the knife to cut their cake by a relative. Typically, the relative tries to “trick” the groom into payment for the knife. Once payment has been received the knife is then passed on to another family member and the dance is repeated. It was a fun and playful moment, eliciting the biggest smiles from both Golshan and Latif. You’ll get to see the cake knife dance and exchange, in its entirety, in the video below

The last two events of the evening turned Golshan and Latif’s wedding at La Caille into a fun interactive experience. Firstly, a ribbon cutting was performed as a way to pass on the bride’s bouquet. In lieu of a traditional bouquet toss, Golshan held her bouquet high above her head. Attached to the bouquet were several ribbons with her guests each holding the other end. One by one, Latif cut the ribbons until finally, the bouquet was gifted to the last ribbon holder. Golshan & Lafit’s La Caille wedding was complete with a dance floor filled with all of their guests, dancing in celebration of the couple’s marriage.
