Wedding reception centers in Utah like Atrium Weddings have as many unique weddings as there are brides. Our Atrium bride Audrey had some very unique ideas and we deem them definitely worth highlighting. Hopefully her ideas will inspire you with some of your own and help you with your wedding plans for your Utah wedding.
An increasingly popular menu for Utah wedding venues has been Sliders and Fries by one of our preferred caterers Utah Celebrations. These tasty little hamburgers are fresh from the grill but are not a big full meal. They are indeed just the right size to slide down and still have room for some fresh fries and some wedding cake. Utah Celebrations also brought one of their signature fruit platters that went right along with the meal.
Along with the popular sliders, is the comeback of the bottle of pop. Utah Celebrations offers this service as well.
A unique thank you for the guests at wedding reception centers in Utah is to do this warm inviting delicious idea. At a designated table, the bride and grooms family members had all baked some of their favorite family homemade cookies. There were platters, pedestals, and glass bowls full of so many delicious cookies that I imagine guests had a difficult time choosing just one or two. I’m sure that three or four found their way into the provided white paper sack to take on their way home. This gestured created a relaxed home kitchen experience and also a genuine feeling of gracious gratitude for the guests taking the time and effort to come celebrate the union of this lovely couple.
We must mention the bride’s beautiful cake. It was created by Heather from Heather’s Cake Cottage. It is a sample of simple elegance. The flowers were done by Chikay who actually is run by Heather’s mother. They do beautiful work.
Audrey and Zach treated their guests to another fun popular memory maker of a photo booth. What a fun backdrop they had. A gentleman named Paul was their DJ for a fun dancing session after the traditional festivities.
Congratulations to this beautiful couple for beginning their new adventure together. We wish you the best and we thank you for letting Atrium Weddings help you celebrate. We are happy to be part of the premier wedding venues in Salt Lake City. As a side note, though this event was in cold November, we are also one of Utah’s outdoor wedding venues.
The pictures of your wedding day at Atrium Weddings in Utah, will become priceless treasures, so be sure you have a good wedding photographer to capture all the sweet moments of the day. Find someone you know and can trust to take fabulous photos of those priceless moments. This person could be a family member or friend or a professional photographer. Make sure they are experienced and that you like their style of photography. Look around and ask for referrals from others who loved their photographer. In my opinion, it is better to go with someone you know and trust than a complete stranger. We had a wonderful photographer who just happened to be my uncle, however, some friends of mine were not so fortunate.
My friends had won a photography package from a bridal fair and they were so excited because that was one less thing they had to pay for. They ended up really loving the person who took their engagement photos, but that was not the same person who showed up on their wedding day. The second photographer was not so great. First of all he showed up about thirty minutes late, and second, he acted like this was the first wedding he had ever taken pictures for. He seemed a little overwhelmed with the whole ordeal. My friends ended up having to tell him the shots they would like, almost having to direct each poise. This was very frustrating for them, especially when they were just expecting to smile and let the professional direct them on what to do. Many of the pictures that day did not turn out. It was a “free” disaster. Luckily when they told the owner of the company that they were not pleased, they were able to have another session with another photographer a couple of weeks later. Although they wished the pictures were taken right the first time, they did have fun dressing up in their wedding attire again.
To avoid a photographer disaster, make sure you find a reputable photographer you know you can trust. If you have having a difficult time finding the right photographer for you, Western Gardens’ Atrium Weddings can provide a few wonderful suggestions of photographers that have worked their wedding reception venue. They also have sample photo books of their favorite photographers that you can browse.

This 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. The 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.
This bride chose to serve her guests a delicious fresh salad, warm rolls, and other delicacies accented with sparkling punch. The couple also chose to have a hot cocoa bar to take off the winter chill from outside, and a candy table dedicated to the brides wedding color, purple.
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.
Winter weddings in Salt Lake City can take on a summer feel in locations like the Atrium. This beautiful Utah wedding location is green and lush all year round, and is always ready to create wonderful memories for couples and families.
