"We started our business quite by "accident" in the fall of 1997. I had several cousins from out of town getting married in the Manti LDS Temple. In the past, we had all gathered at the local City Park for a picnic after the wedding to visit and enjoy
one another's company. However, the weather was turning colder and so, at this particular time, I invited everyone to our home. The warm setting was the perfect escape from the cold weather.

"After the initial "success", I started receiving requests from other families to host their "after wedding gathering" at my home, and it wasn't long before The Rose Cottage was created.

"My husband Rick and I have lived in Manti for thirty years and are very familiar with the area and what Manti has to offer. We were well aware of how badly a Reception Center was needed when the following year, our son, Austin, became engaged. It was then decided to build a separate facility designed exclusively for family gatherings and large social activities.

"At present, The Rose Cottage Reception Center is a beautiful
room where families and friends have been gathering together and creating memories that will last a lifetime. Rick and I and each of our children, and now a son and daughter-in-law, have enjoyed meeting and serving people from all over the United States, and several foreign countries.

Most of our guests have come as mere strangers to our home, hungry and tired. Many of them, especially the mother of the bride, have arrived nervous and worried, but left as friends, relaxed and refreshed, and ready to continue on with all of the special events planned for the rest of the day.

"Rick and I know the importance of family traditions and special events, and we are also sensitive to the broad range of emotions that exist in those relationships. We are also very professional in our service when it comes to executive parties and company dinners.

"We look forward to meeting you and participating with you in doing all we can to make your special occasion just exactly what you have always wanted it and expected it to be."
