No one wants a boring meal during the biggest event of their lives. You want something that will stand out. Something unique, not over priced and convenient. But perhaps tradition may be important to you as well. How do you get all of these things onto one plate? First, you have to find a great caterer that can listen to your needs. We just created the all-new “Not Your Momma’s Meatloaf: A Twist on the Traditional”, one of many new options available at The Joseph Smith Memorial Building! This is an old-fashioned comfort food with gourmet flavor, including: Lean Ground Beef with sautéed Red and Green Peppers with chunky Mashed Potatoes and Cashe Valley Cheddar Cheese, served with fresh Seasonal Vegetables.
We’re continually exploring new fun ideas, so stay tuned for more fun food finds!
Call 801.539.3136 for more information. Our event coordinators are happy to speak with you Monday – Saturday from 9am – 5pm.

Below are some ideas on how to create your own “Great Gatsby”/1920′s wedding!
1. Pick a venue built in the early 1900′s or a venue created with that type of feel.
The Joseph Smith Memorial Building/Hotel Utah was built in 1911. This is just one venue idea but there are several. Even an outdoor wedding event can be transformed into the 1920′s with the right decor.
2. Get a good florist and event designer to complete the look in your venue of choice.

4. A beautiful, 1920′s inspired headpiece is a must!
5. A vintage bouquet tops off your whole look!

Salt Lake’s Premier Wedding Show was absolutely magical this year! The theme was “Your Love Story” and oh what a love story it was. Several future brides fell in love with the decor, the food and the vendors. Located in The Joseph Smith Memorial Building and Lion House, this event took on a classy yet trendy atmosphere. There were several vendors stationed across the area. The food was done by the Joseph Smith catering department and the floral was done by our in-house floral department Flowers Squared. Check out some of the pictures from the event!

Garden weddings have a way of creating a fairytale…
Nothing compares to the fresh, cozy feeling of a backyard…but when you add beautiful linens, gorgeous floral arrangements, and of course, great food and company, you’ve got yourself something special. That backyard turns into a majestic garden party where fond memories will be created and never forgotten.
Here at The Lion House, we love creating these enchanting “fairytale” weddings. Throughout the summer and into the first part of Fall, we host garden receptions, wedding luncheons, wedding dinners and civil ceremonies.
With gorgeous mature trees, beautiful flower beds and plenty of space, you and your guests will delight in the charming ambiance of this wonderful setting.
Our event coordinators love helping every bride design the perfect look for their garden event. And yes, we do offer a back-up indoor location in The Lion House in case of inclement weather. This way all of your bases are covered.
Also, our full-service floral department can take care of all your floral needs, from personal flowers to centerpieces.

Ethnic wedding traditions represent the culture, values and beliefs of a particular country. Many wedding traditions are full of symbolism that reveal a specific culture and life style. Each wedding tradition honors the sanctity of marriage and features themes of unity and new beginnings for the couple.
The Joseph Smith Memorial Building was fortunate to be able to host one such wedding where the brides Persian culture was celebrated at the reception.
The couple was married in the temple in a traditional LDS ceremony, but the reception was full of tradition and symbolism from the bride’s ethnic background. It was beautiful and very touching for all who attended.
