April 13, 2012 – Salt Lake City Wedding Venues Can Help Save the Day

Wedding reception centers in Salt Lake City can help alleviate or make worse any catastrophe that may happen on that most special day.  This beautiful couple experienced disasters that no one wishes upon anyone, especially on their wedding day.  Thankfully, Atrium Weddings event coordinator was there to calm the situations that she nor the couple had no control over.

First the cake provider, not recommended by Atrium, called and indicated they had dropped the wedding cake masterpiece. They would try to salvage what was possible and would be behind schedule.  When it finally came, only the middle and top layers were somewhat there.  Without the bride seeing the disaster that sat upon the beautiful silver cake pedestal, the Atrium host and family jumped into action.  One scurried away and bought two round white cakes from a local grocery store, another retrieved some ribbon from previous decorating of the Utah wedding location, and others kept the bride occupied in the bride’s room while some doctoring took place.  By the time the bride emerged, she had a 3-tiered cake again.  Only the original top was used and ribbon was placed to hide the seams of the other two new layers.  It turned out fine and the bride was grateful for the teamwork of her family and Atrium staff.

If the cake nightmare wasn’t enough, the Reverend to perform the ceremony finally arrived an hour late.  That put everyone on edge, but again, Atrium’s event host was there to calm the waters and make do with a tense situation.  The caterers waited, guests waited, bride and groom waited; however, it did give some extra time to fix the wedding cake presentation.  

Because the dinner was so delayed, the Atrium staff jumped into high-gear to set up for the reception after everyone had enjoyed their late meal.  It was all resolved and gratefully, Atriums’ professionalism was calming and helped make the evening another beautiful wedding celebration of love at Atrium Weddings.  These Salt Lake City wedding reception guests had no idea all that had taken place just hours before. 

After it all, the bride was so grateful that she left this written note to Atrium Weddings. “You are all amazing!  You made my day smooth and stress free – Just what every Bride needs!”  

We at Atrium are glad that we could be there to help alleviate and help solve these uncontrollable events.

April 6, 2012 – A Wedding Reception in Utah with a Spanish Flair

Peek into a Utah wedding venue bustling with a Spanish flair  Welcome from Mrs. and Mrs. Flamingo

There are many wedding locations in Utah, but none had a flamenco flair on April 6, 2012.  Take a peek at the celebration that took place at Atrium Weddings at Western Gardens in Sandy, Utah.  The two pink flamingo bride and groom will greet you as you join in the party and meet a beautiful and fun wedding couple.  


These two best friends were married and attended a wedding party unique and exciting for all to enjoy.  Pablo is from Mexico and his family also attend this wonderful celebration.  Alina is an exciting adventurer and has been taking flamenco dancing, so it was natural to include in their wedding celebration a taste of Spain.  


Guests first witnessed a tender ring ceremony with these two friends, now lovers.  Then four friends stood and surprised the wedding couple with several quartet songs.  They were good!  A toast was presented and all guest tables had sparkling cider and goblets to raise and wish the newlyweds a wonderful future.  Guests lined up to a beautiful buffet of chicken cordon-blue, steamed vegetables, potatoes, gravy, and soft rolls.   No one could go away hungry.

When all were seated, a professional Flamenco dancing group of two dancers and two guitarists entertained the party with authentic Spanish dancing.  The main dancer used castanets, a shawl, and a fan throughout several dances to charm the wedding couple and guests.  The entertainment was topped with the bride joining her dance teacher in doing some flamenco herself.  It was a beautiful moment.  This bride has a flair for learning new things in life.

Cutting the cake was definitely on the fun side of the event.  Then after was the first dance.  It was then that everyone could see that the bride was wearing the same turquoise blue keds that her new husband was wearing.  These two are going to have a wonderful life full of love and adventure.

February 24, 2012 – An Early Spring Utah Wedding Reception in the Eve of Winter

Happy couple at a Utah Wedding reception venueThis bride looked at many wedding venues in Utah before choosing the Atrium wedding reception center for her late winter reception.  Walls of lush green plants frame a majestic hall where guests gather to sign the guest book, greet the wedding party, and linger to enjoy delicious refreshments.  The guests entered through grand doors and were directed to the guest book table complete with photos of the couple.  Included in base price - a sash of the newlyweds first namesThe entrance included the archway displaying the couples first names on a ribbon.  The line to greet the newlyweds was enjoyable because of a big screen TV slide showing bridal shots, and engagement photos.  The couple greets their guests in front of a beautiful and cozy fireplace and hearth, and after hugs, kisses, and words of congratulations, the guests flow to the refreshment buffet tables.

While guests socialized and enjoyed their refreshments, they were entertained with beautiful music from a friend pianist at the grand piano and views of waterfalls and gorgeous plants around the room.  The centerpieces on the tables were also a point of interest with pictures of the bride and groom backdropped with classy candles and purple ribbons.  A very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere was enjoyed by all, especially the bride’s mother and father!

This elegant and beautiful Utah wedding was a great success.  Around 600 guests came and celebrated this special day with the new couple in this beautiful venue.  This is one of the largest receptions Atrium Weddings has hosted.  This Utah Wedding Reception Center fits a lot of people comfortably.
