Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Spanish Fork has a new, unique space to celebrate. Maplewood Events, a premiere wedding and event venue, opened Saturday, June 1, with and open house that included food and dancing. It is 4,000 square feet of fully decorated space right in the heart of Spanish Fork at 1068 Expressway Lane.

Maplewood Events is owned by the Giles family–Bonnie and Russell Giles along with their son Kelly Giles and his wife Heather. Bonnie said opening an events center actually had its origins 20 years ago when Kelly and Heather got married and she decorated the wedding. It was such a success that friends and family started asking her to decorate for their weddings. Russell, Heather and Kelly helped and it grew into a family business.

“We acquired a lot of items to take to different sites to decorate. We packed up stuff and hauled it there and decorated,” Bonnie said. At some point, Kelly suggested, “Mom, let’s take it to the next level. Let’s go bigger.” Bonnie said the stars aligned and they had the opportunity to open Maplewood Events.

Heather said the fully decorated space provides “a clean, fresh, modern look that is comfortable and unique.” Bonnie calls it “industrial with urban modern.” The space is beautiful as is, but there are also some other items to choose from to change up the decor a bit. The area includes the main event area with tables and chairs, a bathroom, a full prep kitchen, two sitting areas, a bridesroom, a big screen TV, and sound system.

Maplewood will also provide flowers for the event for an additional charge. Catering through the event center is not available at this time, though they are looking to partner with some preferred vendors.

The company also offers rentals of some wedding and event decor items for do-it-yourselfers. Renters are responsible for the transportation and set-up of the items.

r

r

Maplewood Events can be found on Facebook at Maplewood Event Venue or online at eventsatmaplewood.com. Or, Heather said, “People can always come and look around if they want to.”

“It’s a beautiful place for someone to come have a party, wedding, reception or corporate event and have fun,” said Bonnie. “It’s always fun to make the bride, mom, everyone happy and have a fun party at a beautifully decorated place.”
