Impact Events kicked off the new year in style with Lauren & Mo’s Wedding at the beautiful Phoenix Art Museum in downtown Phoenix.  Their wedding featured many special jewish customs and traditions (including the bedekkin, tish and benching).  We had a great team to help pull it off!  A special thanks to Simply Scrumptious, Classic Party Rentals, Affinity Band, Phoenix Art Museum, Rebecca Bouck Photography and Bella Mia Video. The following photos are courtesy of Impact Events.

Wedding guests danced all night and loved the 10-piece band!

The groom's sister designed this amazing wedding logo (which is comprised of the initials of their Hebrew names). The logo was used on their ceremony program and other wedding items.

Great publicity start to 2011! We’re so excited to announce that one of the leading local bridal publications Phoenix Bride Groom & Magazine has featured Viviane and Adam’s wedding in their January 3, 2011 “Real Weddings.”  One of our favorites of 2010, Viviane and Adam married at the historic, Frank-Lloyd Wright-inspired hotel, The Arizona Biltmore.  To create their vintage high-glam look, we assembled a highly talented team of vendors, including  Avant-Garde Floral Studio, Kelly Rashka Photography, Affinity Band, Allegro Quartet and Classic Party Rentals. Check out their wedding photos…we hope you enjoy it!

Meet one of our fabulous wedding couples…Jessica and Dave!  We will be chronicling
their wedding journey from start to finish – we hope you enjoy the planning with us!
They are looking forward to their special day – May 7, 2011!!!

Let’s get started…one of my favorite places to meet with clients is Starbuck’s. 
Its amazing what can be accomplished there! As Jessica and Dave reside in NYC,
we scheduled numerous vendor appointments over three days – it was both
fun and productive!

The One!

Along with securing a wedding location, finding your wedding dress should
be at the top of your priority list since it takes at least six months to order!
After researching online and on foot, we found Jessica’s perfect wedding dress
(by Jim Helm) at Destiny’s Bride in Scottsdale (thanks Zoe!).

We were on a roll…Sister Stacy came across this gorgeous satin purple dress at
Twirl Boutique in Scottsdale!  Since its a May wedding, we will be shortening the
length of the dress.  Tip to brides…purple pops in photographs and many
bridesmaids can wear that color.

As their wedding color scheme is purple, pink and light blue, this tie was
clearly the winner! Jessica and Dave had a great time shopping
for his attire! We love when our clients are having fun!

Our initial floral appointment with Avant-Garde Floral Studio went great.  I always suggest to brides
to bring visual aids so they can best describe what they like…and what they don’t!
Amazing ideas can come from anywhere!

Stay tuned…more updates on this wedding coming soon!
