Behind the Design: Utopian Events

When brides entered White Hall of Southern Exchange at 200 Peachtree at Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta, there was a lot of pointing, smiles and gasping at the first gallery in their line of sight. Utopian Events is known for their reception backdrops and their gallery display for Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta did not disappoint. 

We caught up with Angelica Boyd, one of the designers from the Utopian Events team, to learn more about what went into this striking design. 

What was your inspiration for this design? Since 2017 was full of blush and gold, we want it to create something different and contemporary for spring. We really wanted a design that would excite any bride and make her think and even feel in new, exciting ways. We were inspired by the beautiful lynx silver and white linen with square and round patterns. It moved us to create a contemporary and chic look. Our ambition was to be unique and create something was out of the box. 

What color schemes, textures, and themes were included? Our color palette was silver, yellow and green. Mirrors were a focal point for the silver, with our gorgeous mirror backdrops and “tree mirror centerpieces” that had cascading crystals. 

What’s your design process like? A creation of this caliber is only possible with a great team. Our team gets together to brainstorm often and enthusiastically. We play and argue until we birth beautiful concepts full of details and beauty. 

What keeps you inspired? Inspiration is a beautiful gift and can come from anywhere. A piece of fabric, a beautiful morning, a flower, a color, and of course from our brides and their wonderful dreams and visions.

What is your favorite thing about weddings? Our favorite thing about weddings is to see the brides and the grooms’ faces when they enter the room and they are mesmerized and enchanted by our amazing décor. To see them happy and in love makes our hard work so fulfilling and rewarding.
