Utopian Events wishes Jessica & Arvind Chawan a very happy One Year Anniversary!

We enjoyed every minute of being apart of your beautiful wedding celebration.

Such a gorgeous ceremony that we will always cherish. Truly a dream come true for Utopian Events.

Jessica and Arvind – you both inspired us to dream big and bring your ceremony concept to life with our decor team.

 We would especially love to thank Nashville Symphony Orchestra for providing the perfect space for this enchanting ceremony and reception.

We can’t say enough about Derek Wintermute. He is a phenomenal photographer and his photos speak for themselves. Stunning every time.

Jessica & Arvind, we can’t say thank you enough for choosing Utopian Events as your wedding decor professionals. We wish you many years of love and happiness!

Dear Shushil and team at Utopian Events,

I have to start off by saying thank you!  You were able to turn my ideas, vision, and goals for my wedding into something more beautiful than I dreamed of or expected!

Even though my friends and family used you in the past and I liked your work, I interviewed other decorators when I first started planning my wedding over a year ago.  I wanted to cover my bases, and not surprisingly, I quickly was reminded why I wanted to work with you.

From your selection of mandaps, centerpieces, aisle walk designs & decor to your personal creativity, passion, and attention to details, I was able to better formulate what I wanted my wedding day to look like.  You did a great job of listening to my vision, offering your creative suggestions, and incorporating both into the final “product.”  The wedding and reception décor skillfully complemented the natural beauty of my venue to create an absolutely spectacular space that my guests could not stop talking about!

I could not have asked for anything more from you and Utopian Events.  Arvind and I just want to take a moment to thank you for helping make our wedding day beautiful and memorable.

We look forward to our continued friendship with you, and we will not hesitate to recommend you to our family or friends.

Warm regards,

Jessica (Hari) Chawan & Arvind Chawan

 

Happy Anniversary Jessica & Arvind Chawan!

Utopian Events is excited to wish a Happy One Year Anniversary to our awesome clients:  Amita Dodani Dhawan and Hemant Dhawan.

Amita and Hemant were awesome to work with. Both working professionals who lived in NYC, and were hosting their wedding here in Atlanta. Although they did not have time to come back and forth to Atlanta to select decor, they were decisive enough to select all their decor over Italian food and drinks with Komal Auntie and Himant Uncle, who were lucky to take a nap on one of our sprawling benches!!!

At that meeting, I remember showing the couple two pieces of a prototype for their contemporary inspired backdrop. It was raw and unfinished. With one glance, I remember Amita nodding her head and saying Yes, I LOVE it! The best part was revealing the finished product at their reception and seeing their happy faces.

From start to finish we loved helping our clients, whose reception backdrop and estate table were featured in Grace Ormonde April 2013 digital version. This was the first time Utopian Events concepts were featured in this luxurious magazine. Thank you Amita and Hemant for believing in Utopian Events and allowing us to be a part of your special day.

In addition to Amita and Hemant’s beautiful decor, they selected some of Atlanta’s finest vendors to assist them at their wedding, creating a enjoyable weekend that all their guests and appreciated vendors will always remember.

Congratulations Amita and Hemant on your 1st year.  Hope you have a great weekend!

Below is a testimonial from the clients themselves:

The first word that comes to mind when I think of Utopian Events is PROFESSIONAL.  I was extremely impressed with the timely responses to all forms of communication.  We only had 2-3 months to plan the entire wedding.  The showroom/warehouse made it easy to visualize ideas.  Shushil is very dedicated to bringing your vision to a reality.  He and I worked till early morning hours to ensure the ideas and concepts were accurately captured.  My initial concern with my wedding was that two events sangeet and reception would be in the exact same ballroom. 

My sangeet  was exactly what I had imagined….full of color, draping, decorated food stalls, and low bench seating with matching color theme upholstery.  The room was vibrant and full of color making it the perfect welcoming mood for our first event. 

The wedding ceremony was traditional yet classy event.  It was important to my husband and I that we keep the ceremony more traditional hence the location at the Swaminarayan BAPS temple.  The mandap was a semi-circle to make the ceremony more inviting to all our guests and the aisle was beautifully decorated with a pattern of fresh rose petals along with the mandap.  The Utopian team worked diligently into the night to ensure that everything ran exactly on time.

The reception took place in the same ballroom as the sangeet and several people refused to believe it, which in itself tells you how incredible the transformation was in that room.  The best way to really convey my satisfaction with Utopian Events is just to see the pictures from both events taken place in the same room and you’d be completely amazed as we were when we saw it.  The décor was absolutely breathtaking.  All our guests were in total shock for the first few minutes after entering the ballroom and felt like they had walked into a fairytale. 

During the initial planning I had described a more modern décor for the reception.  I wanted to keep in the silver, white, lavender, and anything bling.  The best part was the custom-made backdrop for our stage.  It was completely taken from concept to reality in less than 2 months.  It incorporated candles and flowers without being too floral.  It became the backdrop for all of our guests personal pictures.  The estate tables were another ”WOW” statement.  I have never seen a flower arrangement look so contemporary. 

The amazing teamwork with Utopian Events, Luxury Lounge & Lighting, and Sketch Productions brought the backdrop, estate tables, lit-up dance floor, ceiling draping and chandelier, LED bars, and white lounge furniture from a dream to the best reality.

Three months later, and our guests are still talking about how our wedding was one of the most beautiful, intimate, and classy events they had attended.

It was hard to verbalize our reaction to all your work.  We just got the picture gallery a couple of days ago so as we go through them we are just reminded of how awesome all the events looked.

Shushil – Thank you again for all your hardwork making our event be the talk of the community!!

Kind regards,

Amita and Hemant Dhawan

But, don’t take our word for it. Check out these last highlights and a word from our bride and groom!

Dear Dream Team of Vendors: 

Before too much time passes Amita and I would like to personally thank each of you for helping make our wedding special and spectacular. All of our guests were amazed with how well everything came together. We would like to thank each of you for your professionalism, staying on schedule and being attentive to all of our needs. 

Shushil, wow! What can we say? Our major fear going into this wedding was that the sangeet and reception would look the same and that people wouldn’t get that wow factor which we were hoping for. You transformed the Westin on both nights, made the Dodani residence look so festive and made the Mandap at BAPS look extraordinary. We actually had someone come up to us at the Westin who couldn’t believe that we held both events in the same hall. 

We would be happy to write testimonials, or even speak to future couples on your behalf. I can very happily recommend each of you to anyone! We appreciate each of your creative efforts, ideas and execution that made our wedding so wonderful.  Thank you all again!

Fondly,

Amita and Hemant

A recent Orlando Indian wedding we handled reminded us that when it comes to some of the most important personal moments of our lives, many of us look to the same vendors to provide service we can count on. Just look at how many families use the same dentists, doctors and even funeral homes generation after generation!

Families come to trust service providers and look forward to sharing the same great experience with their children, siblings and other relatives.

Multi-generational Indian wedding planning is the latest incarnation of this age-old trend and we’re seeing it unfold firsthand here at Utopian Events. Just this month, we lent our eye for gorgeous Indian wedding décor to an Orlando Indian wedding of a bride whose sister also used our services in September.

This beautiful Orlando Indian wedding, held at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando, featured  all of the elegant table linens, Chiavari chairs and other wedding products provided by our partner business, Elegant Chairs and Linens. The groom even rode in on an elephant in traditional Indian wedding fashion!

But the best part was the ease with which we were able to put the ceremony together. It’s one of the benefits of multi-generational wedding planning – when everyone feels comfortable and relaxed, event planning always go so much more smoothly.

In fact, repeat business benefits both the customer and the service provider: The customer comes in knowing the level of quality they will receive, while the vendor already understands a lot about customer expectations as well as the tone of the event itself.

The end result recently was a spectacular Orlando Indian wedding! If you are considering using a vendor who has worked with your family before, here are a few important tips:

  • Have a heart-to-heart with your family members: Be it your sister, brother, aunt or uncle, your relative should be consulted for honest feedback on their experience with a vendor.
  • Make sure the vendor can offer a unique, new perspective: Every person wants their wedding or event to be distinct. Ask the vendor for a clear plan on how they will make your event sparkle – but not mimic their previous work with your family. In the recent Orlando Indian wedding, we took care to ensure the bride had as beautiful a wedding as her sister but with its own, distinct flair.
  •   Get the price points out early: Cousin So and So may have paid a certain amount, but she also may have planned an event years ago. Have an up-front talk with your vendor about pricing and never assume you will pay the same thing your relative did.

 As always, Utopian Events loves to work with multiple generations of a family. Whether you’re planning an Orlando Indian wedding or a ceremony right here in Atlanta, give us a call for that luxury touch!

Utopian Events is an outstanding place to go for planning a fantastic event. Shushil Patel, the Founder and Lead Designer, is a extremely gifted at his craft and has a vision like no other. The results of the collaboration with Utopian Events were unreal- not only was the decor outstanding, but our wedding dreams had become reality. Walking into our Reception was like walking into the dream we had planned so eloquently with Shushil. His staff is absolutely amazing and will not let you down.

Another bonus we received from Shushil, were recommendations of other professional vendors. Every single recommendation from Utopian Events executed our wedding flawlessly. Our expectations of our wedding were extreme, but nothing Utopian Events couldn’t handle. In fact, our high expectations were not only met, but exceeded. The event was executed with flair.

We are extremely grateful to Shushil, because he helped to make our dream wedding become a reality.

Gratefully,

Arun and Jennifer Lall
