Kinjal & Rohit ~ Montelucia Resort & Spa ~ Paradise Valley, Arizona

Generally when families gather for the Thanksgiving holiday we picture one large table of good food, fun and drink.  In the case of Kinjal & Rohit, it was 300 of their family members and closest friends who joined them in  this holiday wedding celebration on Thanksgiving weekend 2015 at the Montelucia Resort & Spa in Paradise Valley, Arizona.  The couple and their guests took advantage of picture perfect weather and a beautiful location to celebrate this important event.  The bride’s parents, who were the most gracious hosts, engaged their guests to three days of cultural parties filled with traditional Indian food and music.  The bride and groom looked fantastic posing in their traditional outfits within the cozy spaces of this intimate Moroccan designed venue situated in an Arizona landmark location.  Not only did Kinjal have her dream wedding in her hometown, she and Rohit were able to celebrate in a place very special to them both.  Images by Yogi Patel Global Photography

Samira & Munish ~ Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa ~ Tucson, Arizona

One thing we have learned when planning our events here in Arizona is that we can always rely on Mother Nature to add her little kickers on wedding days.  Not only did she provide Samira and Munish with a beautiful backdrop of the Catalina Mountains at the Westin La Paloma, she also commanded some serious hot and gusty winds to join the party for this October 2015 wedding.  So what’s a little extra kicker for an event that was already a perfect fusion wedding?  Bride Samira, our Persian beauty, joined her life with Munish in what really ended up being a perfect day.  Samira honored Munish’s Indian heritage by donning a traditional Indian wedding sari for the ceremony and later slipped into a perfectly couture wedding gown, meant only for a true Persian princess.     The couple’s decor vision transformed their ballroom in a classy, upscale dining space, accented by a wedding Sofreh for their cultural Persian wedding ceremony.  We are glad that Samira, after being asked, by tradition, several times during the Persian ceremony if she would like to marry Munish, finally said yes to the delight of all of their family and friends.  Images by Sameer Soorma

Lindsay & James ~ Royal Palms Resort & Spa ~ Phoenix, Arizona

Bride Lindsay’s wishes came true when she and groom James exchanged vows on a late September 2015 evening at the wedding venue she had dreamt about since she was a little girl growing up in Scottsdale.  The Royal Palms Resort & Spa proved the perfect setting for our bride who has the best taste in everything……her glamorous vision visible everywhere you turned.  The intimate gathering commenced in the serene and private ceremony garden with signature cocktails bearing the name “Big Brown Eyes,” which was given to her by her dad when she was a young girl.  The dinner reception featured gorgeous floral trees designed with premium long stemmed orchids flown in from Hawaii just for the wedding. Adding to Lindsay’s sense of style were her exceptional bouquet of ruffled red roses and bedazzled glitzy bonbons for every table.  Groom James absolutely delighted in his bride’s style, telling everyone that is one of the very many things that he loves about her.  Images by Ruby Rideout

Jenn & Ben ~ Ritz Carlton ~ Dana Point, California

Not every wedding planner can tell this kind of story.  One day Jenn from Newport Beach, California met Ben, from Newport Beach, Australia while he was vacationing where else but in Newport Beach, California!   It was love at first sight and after a long distance romance between the West Coast and Down Under, Jenn and Ben tied the knot in August 2015 at the breathtaking Ritz Carlton in Dana Point, California.  The couple welcomed guests from across the world with open arms to a California summer wedding.  The dramatic backdrop of the Pacific Ocean set the scene for the ceremony while the sunset provided a stunning backdrop for the dinner.  The bride’s soft color palate was a bit hit when it came to fashion, flowers and parasols!  And yes they are now living happily ever after in, you guessed, it Newport Beach, California.  Images by Larry Crandall Photography

JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa ~ Scottsdale, Arizona

The JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona was the site for the cover shoot for the Fall 2015 issue of Arizona’s Finest Wedding Sites Magazine. I was delighted and honored when the publisher asked me to design this feature cover and inside spread.  Having already planned and designed many large weddings at this venue, I felt that a small intimate space would be the best for a cover shoot.  Our design team chose sparkly linens and bold colors to offset the natural earth tones around the lake and within the interior dining room.  The result was an extravagant, yet warm and friendly party space sized just right for an intimate wedding.  We hope that you enjoy the photos just as much as we enjoyed designing the shoot.  Images by Joyride Photo for Arizona’s Finest Wedding Site Magazine
