Danielle & Jaime

Danielle & Jaime

St. Regis, Deer Valley

Jaime (a plastic surgeon) and Danielle (a preschool teacher) met on a blind date. The Los Angelenos dated for seven months before Jaime popped the question over the Fourth of July weekend. He proposed to Danielle with Champagne and roses in the same spot they were subsequently married a year later at the St. Regis Deer Valley.

“Deer Valley holds a special place in my heart,” says Danielle. “My family has been going there for over 20 years.” Danielle and Jaime hosted a welcome dinner at St. Regis’ Deer Crest club on Friday. On Saturday, all guests attended the Deer Valley music festival (featuring the Utah Symphony), and after the concert, everyone enjoyed drinks, dessert, and dancing at the Spur on Park City’s Main Street. Sunday’s Jewish ceremony included religious articles that belonged to their grandfathers. “I have a tallit from each of my grandfathers that we used to adorn the top of the chuppah,” Danielle says. “And we used Jaime’s late grandfather’s tallit to be wrapped in by the rabbi during the ceremony.”

“We wanted an elegant, rustic theme,” Danielle explains. Dahlias, Garden Roses, Lisianthus, Ranunculus, and Blushing Brides decorated centerpieces and bouquets. Five crystal chandeliers dangled from the rafters of a clear-sided tent, and candle-filled hurricanes flickered on the tops of the long farm tables. “The most memorable moment of the wedding was the first look,” Jaime describes, “I didn’t realize how emotional it would be!”

Danielle’s three-year-old son Oliver played a large part in the festivities. “Jaime and I considered the wedding to be about the three of us becoming a family,” Danielle says, “because of that, Oliver has a part in our first dance, and he was lifted up on a chair during the horas. That was his favorite part!” The Part Crashers performed live.
