Scenemakers has been helping couples plan their dream weddings in Utah for over 20 years. It’s a branch of the Modern Companies which includes companies such as  Modern Expo & Events, and Modern Display.  Since it’s launch in the 1940’s, Modern Companies and Scenemakers continue to be a leader in the wedding and event planning industry in the Mountain West. 

At the time of this writing, Karley Parker was the Account Executive of Social Events at Scenemakers. We sat down for a Q&A with her to chat about her wedding planner weapons, favorite  products and projects from last year.

UB&G: What’s your favorite day-of wedding planner weapon?

ParkerBinder, water, comfortable shoes and sunscreen.

UB&G: What’s a favorite wedding of yours from the last year?

Parker: “Savannah and Bridger are an artsy young couple that wanted to keep their wedding unconventional, so they chose a private residence in Alpine for their July 1st nuptials. This wedding was a favorite for its use of fruit mixed with floral. It was a hot day in July and having the fruit incorporated made it feel lush, unique and a perfect representation of summer.”

UB&G: What local products did you use or could you use?

Parker: “We used everything in our inventory, which we do rent out.”
