At this time, we are not accepting walk in appointments. We ask that you call us at 801.785.9668 x 300 or email Becky or Courtney to schedule an appointment firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. It is required to wear a mask for your appointment and to not come if you are experiencing any illnesses. Thank you!
Please have patience with us as we are experiencing high call volumes and many emails every day. The best form of contact is email, but if you prefer to call, please leave a voicemail if we do not answer.
Being in the yellow phase has been so happy as we have been able to begin having events again! Now that we have done events following the yellow phase guidelines we have now learned what works and what does not.
You will notice when you come in for an appointment that masks are required to come into the building. This is not a requirement for your private event, HOWEVER, they are highly encouraged.
We will provide and display mandatory signs encouraging social distancing. (one at the front entrance, one outside the Vista Room, 2 inside the Vista Room, and one on each table. See attachments) THESE ARE NOT OPTIONAL.
Mandatory floor markings to encourage 6 foot social distancing along the outside of the room (See attached photo)
One hand sanitizing station provided outside the Vista Room. We have 2 other automatic dispensers available for you to put on your serving and guest book table. You will need to bring sanitizer to fill these two.
We have one universal floorplan for receptions. It is required. You can have the 7 wood tables inside and we will put 4 round tables on the North West patio. Due to COVID-19, no additional tables are permitted. (See attached floor plan) Government mandates that all tables must be 8 feet apart and seating is limited to 6 people from the same household per table.
Most caterers are aware of food and drink regulations, however, it is important that you are aware that all food must either be prepackaged, grab-n-go food OR must be served by a designated server who is equipped with an apron, gloves, and mask—this rule applies to drinks as well.
We encourage only having First Dance, Daddy-Daughter/Mother-Son dance. Dancing is not prohibited but we strongly advise against it. There are strict rules that if you do have dancing, a 6 foot distance MUST be maintained among the dancers.
Cake cutting: Bride and Groom are permitted to cut their cake HOWEVER, if they plan on serving their cake they must take their slice 6 feet away from the cake after slicing to feed it to each other. This is to prevent cake and saliva from flying onto the cake from laughing/smashing cake into faces/etc. The caterer or other designated server equipped with gloves, apron, and mask must slice and serve the cake to the rest of the guests. If cake is being served, it cannot be displayed in its usual corner, it would need to be near the food where the caterer can keep an eye on it and a safe distance from guests.
We have had many people ask about the guest number limit. At this time, the government does not have a specific limit to how many people may gather at a time—it is based on how many you can social distance. There is no limit so long as your guests can maintain a 6 foot social distance from one another. Please keep in mind that if it becomes crowded and apparent that 6 foot social distancing cannot be maintained, your hostess will inform your person of contact and a line will have to form outside and guests will be let in as others leave. To avoid this happening, we encourage you to encourage your guests to come, say congratulations, enjoy a quick treat, and then leave so as to allow as many of your guests the opportunity to see the happy couple. To help assist with avoiding congestion, there will be a separate entrance and exit.
We appreciate your patience as we too are doing our best to comply to new changes as they are released by the government. Please keep in mind that these rules may change or be added to as the government releases new information.
If you are rescheduling your event or would like to book, please visit our AVAILABILITY tab on our website to see what days are available. Please keep in mind that we are doing our best to keep our availability calendar up-to-date, but there may be some discrepancies as our calendar is ever changing. Please confirm your date with Vista staff before planning on a date. Please also note that any holds on dates are not shown on the calendar as well.
We hope that all of you are staying safe and healthy! We know this is a crazy time to be planning a wedding and we want to do all we can to help you still have a wonderful time while helping keep you and your loved ones healthy!
