For those couples traveling to Utah to tie the knot, look no further than FUSE Weddings & Events. Owner Mara Marian knows how to create gorgeous events and transform indoor and outdoor spaces with flawless execution. She brings together talent, creativity and organization for clients and couples desiring innovative and fresh design with exciting guest experiences for their big day. Marian is known for her stunning mountain destination weddings, but she always incorporates breathtaking and cutting-edge elements into any event she designs.

From LED-lit ballerinas to show-stopping cocktail-hour aerialists, Marian brings events to life with transformative components. “We make sure our clients’ events are tailored to them and what they want. We always want to be fun and different,” says Marian. And her ever-expanding inventory of custom décor helps her create jaw-dropping events for any client, LDS to secular, local to out-of-state and even straight or same-sex couples. A point of pride, Marian was the first designer in Utah to have one of her same-sex wedding clients published in Utah Bride & Groom magazine.

Marian’s strong character and commitment to her clients means that the customer always gets what they want, from traditional to modern. “Because we take the time to get to know our clients and figure out what they’re excited about, we help them find that balance between what they feel will excite their guests and what they truly want,” says Marian. FUSE’s services range from partial to full service planning and can include everything from design to event day coordination.

Q&A

Q. Dream Goal?

“I’d love to open a venue. It would be exciting to have an event space that is also ours. I think it would be amazing to have our own space that we can put our own flavor on and produce events.”

Q. Why are you important to the community?

“The destination business is big in Utah. We’re busy all year, but during summer months we’re helping to drive revenue that’s coming in from out of state. We also do one fundraiser event a year for a local non-profit chapter. We fully donate services and staffing to completely plan and produce the event, and to help local non-profits fundraise.”
