Amy Cloud Photography Joins Utah Events by Design

Utah Events by Design would like to welcome its newest member to
our Preferred Vendor Program. Introducing...

Amy Cloud Photography

Welcome!!! We are so excited that Amy Cloud Photography is now a part of our team.

I had never heard of Amy Cloud Photography before my best friend, Melissa told me about her and her incredible ability to shoot life through the lens of a camera. So I decided to check her out and within minutes I decided to click the “like” button on her facebook fan page.

Amy just has it, ya know? She captures all sorts of moments in life, big and small. And browsing through her photography is like wrapping up in a warm, cozy blanket and feeling all sorts of content with where you are for the moment. Amy has the ability to look beyond the lens and see the shot through a picture frame and then, within the mere seconds it takes to create art, she captures a magic moment.

And although she's insanely talented, I also wanted to extend an invite to Amy to participate in the Preferred Vendor program because she’s such an approachable person! In fact, my good friend had a session with Amy this past weekend and when it was over, she called me and said “You couldn’t ask to work with a nicer person! I felt like I had known Amy forever even though we just met face to face. She’s so nice and just all around cute and easy to work with! Good choice on including her in your program.”

So really, what more can I say other than I am so thrilled to have Amy Cloud Photography on board?!. And I know you’ll be excited, too. Whether in need of a photographer for a wedding, anniversary party, birthday, or any other type of special celebration or event, don’t hesitate to check out this small town girl with a big city talent!

In addition to getting fantastic service and beautiful photos, Amy Cloud Photography is offering promotional packages and pricing to clients of Utah Events by Design!
That’s right! You get awesome photos AND killer pricing!!!

It doesn’t get any better than that, folks so check out Amy Cloud Photography here today!
Please join us in welcoming Amy Cloud by sharing some love and leave her a comment :)

Enjoy! :)

So Much Fun

Yesterday was a long day, but a great day :)

My team and I rose bright and early and headed out to the South Towne Exposition Center to set up our booth for the Bridal Extravaganza. Set up went smoothly and we were ready in time when the doors opened for all the brides to wander through.

The day was crazy and busy but full of exciting energy as tons of brides stopped by to say hello, compliment us on our work, and chat about their upcoming wedding needs. We met so many wonderful brides and I'm looking forward to working with many of them soon!

We also met a lot of really talented vendors as we visited with our neighboring booths and took turns to peruse the show. Many vendors were interested in joining our Preferred Vendor Program and exciting things are in the works so stay tuned for upcoming details!

We were too busy to capture many pictures, especially after the doors opened and we were busy chatting with brides, but here are a few that my husband snapped before the event started:

Thanks again to everyone who dropped by to say hello. We had a great time and hope you did too!

Total Cuteness and Sophistication

When I purchased vendor booth space at the upcoming Bridal Extravaganza (taking place THIS Saturday), I realized I needed to make sure that not only did I wear something so I looked nice at the event, but more importantly, I needed to look uniform, professional and sophisticated (and cute never hurts either). I also needed to make sure that those helping out in the booth looked the same. And by "those" I mean my handsome hubby.

This is handsome hubby:

Isn't he adorable? And did I mention he's a Marine? So if you think those baby blue eyes he's sportin' are dreamy, you should see him in his dress blues. I tell ya, blue is a good color, especially on him :)

Anyway... back to the point of this post.

So, I decided that something was in order but I didn't want to go all dramatic and order a uniform. Who likes wearing uniforms anyway? That's when I decided that aprons could be super cute and serve a very tactical purpose as well considering that:

1- I could place that pen I always seem to be looking for in one of the apron pockets, and
2- In addition to that darn pen that always goes missing, I could use the pockets for the other things I always seem to be looking for when setting up and working an event.

Thus my google search for the perfect (and customizable) apron began...And then all of a sudden...Voila! 

I came across ShopMemento and found exactly what I was looking forThis little gem of a web site (and the talented Terri who produces all things cute, customizable, and sophisticated) totally saved me from my "uniform conundrum" because

Look at how CUTE these are:

For those of you wondering, no, handsome hubby will not be wearing the apron lined with cute ribbon. That one is mine :) His apron is solid chocolate brown with pockets on the front and of course, our beautiful logo. His is also a male cut apron whereas mine is a feminine cut.

I can't say enough about the quality of these aprons. Not only did Terri make sure all the colors of my logo were perfect, she even went as far as to email pictures of threads, ribbons, and samples of my digitized logo to make sure everything was as perfect as I wanted and hoped for.

So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw a  package sitting on my front porch today. I tore into the box quickly and then pulled out three perfect aprons that were even better than what I had visualized from the pictures Terri had emailed me. I mean, I can't gush over these enough. They are FANTASTIC!

If you wanna see these classy aprons up close, stop by the Utah Events by Design booth at the Bridal Extravaganza this Saturday. We'll be sporting these fashionable "uniforms" as we discuss our wedding services with all the brides.

Speaking of brides, if you are one, you really should check out Shop Memento here if you're searching for the perfect gifts for your brides maids (or even something for yourself that has your new last name on it!). Shop Memento has so many cute ideas for personalized gifts. I mean, we're seriously talkin about REALLY CUTE STUFF!!! And Terri is a total doll to work with so don't wait! Check out Shop Memento now!!!

Happy shopping and customizing :)

Destination Weddings: Outer Banks, NC

Have you always dreamed of saying "I do" on a white sandy beach while brilliant blue waters create the perfect romantic backdrop behind your wedding alter?

If Utah isn't quite the place where you've always imaged marrying your soul mate, then perhaps you should consider a destination wedding! And, you're in luck because Utah Events by Design specializes in making your wedding day vision a reality even when you're not getting married in Utah! We love to travel and we especially love coordinating weddings, so we think putting the two together is the perfect combination.

In fact, this week we are spending some time in one of our favorite destination wedding sites: The Outer Banks of beautiful North Carolina. There are numerous stunning places along the coastlines of North Carolina that create a perfect setting for a romantic wedding ceremony and/or reception. But don't take our word for it. See for yourself:

So besides a stunning backdrop, what are some of the other advantages of a destination wedding? Well... you can relax after your big day because there's no need to worry about packing your bags after a long wedding celebration for honeymoon travels, nor do you have to worry about getting up at the crack of dawn after a long night of partying only to make it to the airport to wait in a 2 hour security line. And there's no chance that your honeymoon destination flight will be canceled because.... YOU'RE ALREADY THERE!!!

Just remember, I'm only one phone call/email away from helping make this happen for you. What are you waiting for? Book your destination wedding today!

Need I say more?.........

I didn't think so :)
