From bride Jennifer Swiatek:

“Trying to describe our wedding at Sorrel Ranch has us reaching beyond Webster’s range of words. They simply do not seem quite good enough. Not nearly.

Shon & I choose the Sorrel River Ranch with some hesitation since although we travel from Vermont to Moab quite often, we have never been to the property. We know we wanted our intimate wedding of 11 to be something that would not only engrave in our families why Moab means so much to us…. but also treat them to an overdose of raw stunning landscapes and a shamefully exquisite feast.

This was achieved and then… it went above.

Every Bride and Groom has an image in their head what they want their wedding day to be like. You play out every detail in your mind. By your actual day it is perhaps bordering on unrealistic.Well…. this not only matched our vision… it blew it away.

The initial contact with Nina made us at ease. She was so enthusiastic! She helped us with every detail, sent us photos and options , entertained every question promptly and without tire through the entire process.

Something that was of utmost importance to both my Husband and I was the meal.We both try to outdo each other in the kitchen and we often revolve our travels around food experiences. We came up with an intense food menu and presented it to Chef Henry. Honestly we were concerned that he would find it a bit lofty. His response made us smile from ear to ear as he was just as excited as us and wanted to know if he had “play” room. We said ” Go for it ”

He took our menu and morphed it into the most thrilling , vibrant, sensational meal of our lives. It was intensely remarkable. Our families almost applauded with each course that came out…. the thought and work, and clear love of Farm to Table dining was so apparent. It was food in the most beautiful state. Henry & his team are artists and everyone was just floored .The composition on each plate was a dance of color, texture and culinary thoughtfulness.

Courses such as : ( to list a few)

- Compressed watermelon skewer,with basil caviar, spring radish, banyuls vinegar, sea salt, micro basil and balsamic reduction

- Chicken and waffle bites with assorted pepper jellies, pecan maple glaze and micro kale

- Saffron sous vide pork belly, green tomato marmalade, roasted beet pearls, petite greens, red veined sorrel and sea salt

- Mushroom and sun flower tea, garnished with cayenne oil, and sunflower shoots

- Thyme and duck fat sous vide beef tenderloin, duck fat mashed potatoes, port demi glace and petite greens

- Dessert of a house made waffle cone with a scoop of Ice cream they made from local honey. This was served in a Champagne glass with berries in the bottom alongside our Cairn shaped wedding cake.

The Service.
We did not felt like it was a “job” to the Staff. We felt like we were guests in a good friends home. Everyone was so welcoming and genuine. We cannot express how much we appreciated how they made us and our families feel. By the end we were opening our homes to any one of them who might want to journey to Vermont !

We finished with S’mores by the fire… Shon and I looked around at the smiles of our guests… the chatter about the event and the joy they had for us.
Perfect is not good enough. It is just not. It was the best day of our lives and we owe a major part of that to this wonderful wonderful place and its gracious Hosts.

We will be returning for many Anniversaries. Thank you all.”
