Samantha and Chris’ Wedding @ The Arizona Biltmore
Photography by Elyse Hall

The scenery and lush gardens of The Arizona Biltmore lent itself to an ideal backdrop for Samantha and Chris’ wedding location.  Unfortunately, a huge thunderstorm occurred and dampened their beautifully-planned outdoor ceremony and reception but was quickly replicated inside a ballroom by the amazing hotel staff and awesome vendor team.  Despite the inclement weather, Samantha and Chris had the time of their lives celebrating with family and friends, including a fun after-party yummy mini-sliders and sweet potato fries!

Stephanie and Jason’s Wedding @ Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain
Photography by Erica Velasco Photographers

For Stephanie and Jason’s big day, we created a “soft, romantic vintage” feel utilizing a soft white/blush color palette, glass jars, perfume trays and the hotel’s desert landscape.  The bridesmaids wore necklaces that spelled out “bridesmaid” in morse code.   The fun couple embraced the wedding moniker, “For Like Ever,” with custom cocktail napkins, favors and wedding cake topper.  Their beloved King Charles Cavalier Violet served as the “flower dog” complete with a designer pink leash.  The guests enjoyed all their unique wedding touches while sipping “Mr. and Mrs” signature cocktails.

With a mixture of modern, contemporary and classic elements, Sarah and Noam’s wedding at the Phoenix Art Museum was an ideal backdrop for their special day.  The couple, along with their wedding guests, enjoyed celebrating throughout the museum with many jewish customs and traditions (their ketubah was one of our favorites – lovingly designed by a relative!).  The hora (special jewish dance) held strong for one hour – even Noam stood up on a serving tray!  This sweet couple enjoyed every second of their special day!

Let’s give a huge shout out for Nicole who enjoyed her 13th birthday celebration with a fresh and fun “think pink” cheerleading theme! Nicole wore a specially designed cheer uniform (complete with silver glitter tennis shoes) which complimented her custom logo tattoo! Guests enjoyed cheering on Nicole as she entered the energetic ballroom and danced until the very end.  Nicole’s fabulous menu featured many delicious goodies, including a sundae station and candy corner! Congrats and way to go N-I-C-O-L-E!!

Jamie’s 40th Birthday Celebration @ Private Residence in Scottsdale, AZ

To celebrate Jamie’s 40th birthday and his passion for food, it was only fitting to have food trucks featuring his favorites – sliders, bbque and tacos! The dessert truck provided all things ice cream, including Jamie’s favorite – banana split! Guests also indulged in airbrush tattoos, a fun photo station, custom candy bar and trivia prizes all night long courtesy of DJ Justin! Photo cubes with succulents were displayed on the feasting tables adding an extra personal touch to the celebration. The guest of honor had a blast and made turning 40 that much more delicious!

Described as mid-century modern meets present day with a Pucci twist, Kara and Ben’s wedding was the inaugural event for the Hotel Valley Ho.  The hotel (and its breathtaking skyline rooftop!) served as the perfect backdrop for their special day which featured The Martini Kings from LA’s famed Derby.  Amazing wedding with such a fun couple!

To capture the timeless elegance and feel for their wedding, Viviane and Adam selected the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired hotel, The Arizona Biltmore.  Viviane wore a vintage beaded satin gown by Vera Wang and Adam chose a suit by Ted Baker (which was complimented by his  favorite hightop sneakers!).  The high-glam event powered into a full blown rock concert with their 10-piece band leading the way!

Located in the heart of Phoenix, one of the most beautiful and historic places to get married is Brophy Chapel.  From a traditional Catholic mass,  guests quickly transitioned to a Cuban-themed cocktail reception at the beautiful (and newly-renovated) Camelback Golf Club.  Since Ryan and Jack met in Cuba, we featured a variety of flavored mojitos, homemade salsa and guacamole and custom-rolled cigars for guests to enjoy. Ole!

A gorgeous couple at a luxurious resort in Paradise Valley…Aimee and Matthew selected the exclusive Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain for its incredible views and desert landscape.  The great color combination of hot pink and apple green with chocolate brown accents complimented their surroundings perfectly.  Just loved her hot pink wedding shoes!

Mindy was Grace Kelly, Peter was her leading man and the setting was DC Ranch Country Club…and together they combined elegance, beauty and style! With a gorgeous twinkle light courtyard and centerpieces filled with roses and peonies,  their wedding was incredibly romantic and forever remembered by their guests.

A fun, whimsical wedding consisting of red, white and turquoise, Karen & Jesse had the time of their lives! The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess served as an ideal location to accommodate 300 guests, a rockin’ country band, DJ and ultra-cool lighting for their dinner reception.  Rock on!

Sarah and Sam’s Wedding @ Desert Mountain

Desert Mountain’s Chiricahua Clubhouse is one of the most magical places to get married in Arizona.  For Sarah and Sam, it incorporated a mixture of desert, rustic and organic elements.  We used a variety of succulents, branches and purple and white floral to convey their look.  The sunset ceremony was absolutely stunning and guests were blown away!

Jill and Joseph’s Wedding @ The Royal Palms
Photography by Hurwitz Photography

A complete destination wedding for Jill, Joseph and their guests, The Royal Palms was a perfect location for them! The hotel’s old world charm and romance was conveyed throughout their wedding.  Their sweet 2 year old daughter walked down the aisle with them while a Spanish guitarist played background music.  The four-course dinner featured beautiful ivory textured linens with soft white and pale pink roses.

Ari and Victor’s Wedding @ The Scottsdale Resort
Photography by Sergio Photographer

For their wedding, it was a top priority to Ari and Vic to incorporate their individual backgrounds yet express their lives together.  For the dinner reception, we featured Mexican tarot cards which served as both the place cards and table names; a candy table featuring their favorite treats (always a huge hit!) and custom bobbleheads of the pair for their wedding cake topper.

Cortney and Michael’s Wedding @ Desert Botanical Garden
Photography by Hinz Photographic

Cortney and Mike were the last of their close friends to get married so they wanted a location that was unique and outdoors.  The Desert Botanical Garden served as the ideal location along with their colors mint green and pink. The natural surroundings were incorporated into their wedding design…polished stones served as escort card holders,  their floral centerpieces consisted of hydrangea and succulents and guest favors were packets of seeds.
