2017 Utah Bride & Groom White Party

Last year, the Michelle Leo Events team had the pleasure of designing and executing the White Party for Utah Bride & Groom Magazine where 275 vendors gathered to celebrate Utah's amazing industry professionals. The Eccles Performing Arts Center, Downtown SLC's new showstopper, is such an open and contemporary space that we wanted the event design to have the same contemporary feel with a splash of elegance, keeping in line with Utah's wedding industry.

Olivia and Geoff’s white winter wedding was the perfect combination of woodland whimsical and winter magic.
