From Los Angeles to Under Canvas Moab, it’s typically a 2-day drive for our team. As we hit the final stretch and come upon the “Under Canvas” sign we know we’re about to have a wild time. In particular, for this wedding, we knew we were about to have an out of world experience! When our clients approached us with a Planet Moab theme we couldn’t have even dreamt what the actual outcome would be.
The Rehearsal Dinner
You’re about to dive into a visual experience like none other and let me remind you, it’s only the rehearsal dinner that I am sharing with you today. Most guests were traveling from France so the couple prepared days of adventure for their guests. It first started with a speed boat tour of the river in Moab. Meanwhile, our team was getting ready for what would be Planet Moab!
We were lucky enough to find Beehive Catering and will now forever pitch them as our go to in Utah! They served up a delicious BBQ dinner for these next level guests.
The Finest Alien Costumes this Planet has Seen
As we mentioned, we could not dream what was about to happen next! As guests checked in, they quickly disappeared into their glamping tent to get ready for the rehearsal dinner. One by one, guests emerged from their safari tents in full homemade Alienware. To say it was out of this world doesn’t quite do it justice. Victoria & Clement’s guests did not disappoint with their creative costumes. From costumes with large wings to outfits that fully glowed in the dark. They were not messing around with this theme.
A Rocket Ship Art Car Turned DJ Booth
How is it possible that in one month, we had two weddings with art cars? Did we even know what one was prior to our planning journey for this wedding? No, no we did not but let me tell you we are now art car experts! We worked with Ulla and her husband at Moab Event Services to bring in some necessary rentals such as their fun “Boom” truck. After the guests dined under the bistro lighting they quickly transmitted themselves to the dance floor with a special friend who flew in from France to DJ.
We say over and over again but we truly are thankful to our clients who allow us to think outside of the box and explore different ideas. Not every planner can say they planned a rehearsal dinner for guests from a different planet!
