Boojum Tree Hidden Gardens Wedding

Chelsea and Drew were married last October in the beautiful setting of Boojum Tree Hidden Gardens. There is nothing like this venue in the valley and you truly do not feel like you are in Phoenix.

Chelsea's mom helped in the planning all along the way and she did it long distance! I so enjoyed getting to know her and had so much fun planning with them.

SO cute signs were placed all along the pathways to direct the guests. We ordered from Etsy.

Chelsea's colors were gorgeous and perfect for an October wedding.

Best wishes to you both!

Thank you Emily Estfan, EME Photography for your amazing photography talent!!!

The look of the reception was really imporant to Sheree and it all came together beautifully.

Thank you Sheree and Brandon for allowing me to share in this special time with you.

L'Auberge de Sedona Wedding

Julie and Joseph live in California but they wanted a destination wedding in Arizona. They knew they had made the perfect choice when they selected L'Auberge de Sedona and Meghan and Kara are so wonderful to work with there.

The red rock views from the hillside ceremony location are so beautiful and Kitty and Craig of Twin Lens Images captured the day with their amazing artistic talent perfectly. I have never worked with photographers who carried and use so many cameras!! I greatly enjoyed working with them, they are so fun, thanks for sharing these awesome photos!!

Julie wanted a traditional look but with a rustic mix, as you can see that was accomplished on the gorgeous reception tables which were set by the creek. A mix of different sized mason jars were used on the dinner and cocktail tables. Sherrie Husband of Flowers with Flair did an amazing job.

Beautiful paper products from Kelsey Murrietta of Flossy Stylish Design.

I didn't get to see Julie and Joseph too much during the planning process since they live in California but Julie and I kept our keyboards hot with emails to each other and when we did get together in person we packed a lot of planning into those meetings. Julie and Joseph became so special to me, they are 2 amazing people, I truly miss them.

Their wedding was selected by Style Me Pretty as a post in the real wedding section. Be sure to check it out to see many more amazing photos. Thanks Julie for the sweet things you wrote, you truly made my day!

The Raven at Verrado Wedding

Carina and Scott ~ wow I don't even know where to begin. These are 2 of the most beautiful people, inside and out, that you will ever meet. I was so honored to assist them in planning their wedding day.

Both of them are local TV broadcasters and have crazy schedules to coordinate around but they always found time to plan this important day together. I love it when couples put a lot of effort into planning a meaningful ceremony and Carina and Scott definitely touched their guest's emotions.

See I told you they are cute!

Their ceremony and reception was at The Raven Golf Club in Verrado, the mountain views are goregous.

The Flower Studio's amazing talent, thank you Christine!

Their guests wrote blessings for them and tied to this tree.

The adorable ring bearer!!
Carina and Scott, you are both so special to me. I am so thankful God blessed me with your friendship! All my love to you both!

Thanks Emily Estfan, EME Photography, for sharing these photos and your wonderful talent.

Sunridge Golf Club Wedding

Lisa and Bill went to high school together then become reacquainted at their high school reunion, what a fun love story! They were equally fun to assist in planning their wedding.

Lisa's beautiful bouquet.

Lisa and Bill wanted a laid back tropical feel, and that was evident in the beautiful flowers from Flowers with Flair. Thanks Sherrie for all your hard work and creativity.

Their wedding cake was adorable, I love the lace artwork on it by PJ at La Dolce Pesca.

Their ceremony and reception took place at Sunridge Golf Club in Fountain Hills. I do not think there is any other location in the Phoenix area that has views as amazing as Sunridge. Brian and his staff are amazing to work with as well.

Lisa and Bill's new family, so cute.

Thanks Emily, EME Photography for the beautiful photos.

All my best wishes to you both!

Montelucia Resort and Spa Wedding!

Julie and JD live in Chicago and wanted a beautiful and fun location that all of their out of state guests would enjoy for their destination wedding. Once they saw The Montelucia Resort and Spa, they just knew it would be the perfect venue. As you can see they were a picture perfect bride and groom as well!!

Julia Baker Confections designed this beautiful cake, the bride purchased the amazing broaches that were so gorgeous!

Custom runner for the ceremony aisle with the couple's monogram.

Julie recently sent a recommendation for me to another bride and I wanted to share her sweet words :) I would not only hire her again to help plan any event for me, I hope to keep in contact with her as a friend. She went above and beyond and made the days of my events and wedding run smoothly and without flaw. She is so worth her weight in gold! If I could give any advice from one bride to another, hire Sandy and cut somewhere else if she is not in your budget.
Ahhh, thanks Julie, you totally made my day!!

The day was centered around an "Old Hollywood" theme, the red carpet runner at the entrance to the cocktail hour on the Valencia lawn was so perfect.

This typewriter guest book was placed at the end of the red runner and their guests typed sweet messages to the bride and groom.
Congratulations Julie and JD, what a great day, all my best wishes for an amazing new life together!! Can't wait for you to visit Phoenix so we can have lunch!

Desert Botanical Garden Wedding

What a beautiful day Colleen and Brad had for their wedding at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix last weekend! After all the rain which seem to hit every weekend this winter it was SO nice to have such great weather. And if anyone deserved a nice day this awesome couple did!
Colleen and Brad just returned from their honeymoon and she sent me this...I can't say it enough - thank you so much for all you did to make our day run so smoothly. We have gotten so many comments, emails, phone calls etc about what an amazing day it was... and it was that way because of you. You are so awesome and I just loved having you by my side for the past 18 months! (yes its been that long!) Thank you Sandy!

How cute is this photo of Colleen and her bridesmaids?! Love it!!
Cristi Owen was the talented photographer and as you can tell she captured the day amazingly.

Colleen surprised Brad with this cute bobble head cake topper in their imagine. It was quite a hit at their reception.

Once again my talented daughter, Kelsey, Flossy Stylish Design, provided cute paper products.

Colleen was one of the most organized brides I have ever assisted, as well she and her mom were so fun to work with. I miss them already.

Best wishes Colleen and Brad!!!
