Utah Bride & Groom White Party 2023

On May 2, 2023, Utah Bride & Groom magazine hosted the best of Utah’s wedding professionals at our first White Party since the worldwide shutdown. With a garden party theme and a freshly refurbished local venue, Fuse Weddings and Events coordinated a lavish return to live events. Three bands, a fascinating menu, and decor dressed to the nines in spring pastels welcomed the state’s industry in true luxury wedding style.

Utah Live Bands provided not one, not two, but three fabulous entertainment groups for the evening, and Culinary Crafts caterers produced a daring and truly one-of-a-kind menu featuring dish such as wild mushroom polenta, sardine flatbread, caviar french toast and braised pork banh mi buns. Decoration, Inc. transformed the halls of Twenty & Creek into a pastel garden oasis, outfitting a fireplace centerpiece in a symphony of pinks and lavenders. Desserts were presented by Chip Cookies, and in a live icing demonstration by cake. by Alessandra.

Guests also enjoyed a zero-proof wine bar and selections from Vine Lore, photo booths by Utah Jive and luxury lounge areas by Wild Event Studio and Vault event rentals. The main showcase of the evening featured live floral gowns modeled by dancers from Utah’s Ballet Center, who captured the hearts of every guest. Floral showpieces included: a plush petaled minidress in shades of pink and gold by Cactus & Tropicals; tropical inspiration with a foliage umbrella by Jacquelyn’s Floral Designs; a blushing cherry blossom number by Urban Chateau Floral and Tiffany Plyler; cascading tulips in fiery orange from Native Flower Company; and an electric blue tutu by Bumble and Blossom Floral, topped with a pressed-flower bodice by Flowers of the Press.

On behalf of the entire UBG team, we want to thank all of our generous sponsors and vendors who participated in this event, as well as the 200+ industry members who came out to celebrate Utah’s weddings & events community.
