JW Marriott Desert Ridge Arizona Springtime Wedding

It’s almost Friday which means we’re dreaming of the weekend, but today, we’re also dreaming of this sensational Phoenix wedding captured by the lovely Nia Noyan with Noyan Photography. The dress. The landscape. The details. This ceremony is full of casual elegance and intimate details that were just what the couple was looking for. Nadia and Andrew’s big day incorporated shimmering jewels, classic formal attire and gold hues that mirrored the natural lighting that the ever-gorgeous JW Marriott Desert Ridge landscape has to offer.

We are absolutely loving the unique beauty of this venue and its surroundings. From the tall palms, to the intimate “I, Do’s” on the grass, it just doesn’t get much better. The bride’s elegant a-line gown is more than eye-catching. This wedding day is all about the details, the almost Mrs. little black waistband matches her bridesmaids’ dresses as well as the décor of the reception-think classic black and gold.

From the shimmering gold and white wedding cake, to the festive reception favors and the fun well wishes for the Mr. and Mrs, this springtime wedding is too spectacular not to share.

Special details about the big day…

Andy and I had only a few requirements for the wedding:

  1. To have an intimate, quiet, and romantic ceremony
  2. To have the Mother of the Bride and Bride’s best friend/bridesmaid design all decorations and centerpieces (mostly created using Shutterfly & Wedding Paper Divas)
  3. Since this was one of the last nights before Nadia moved to Austin, TX to join her now husband – they mostly focused on making sure that the reception was a true party consisting of great dance music, glow sticks, light up glasses, a guest appearance by Sparky the Sun Devil (college mascot) and a confetti cannon to end the night.

Real Wedding: Sarah & Ilir

This week’s Real Wedding features Sarah and Ilir’s intimate affair at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn, in Phoenix, AZ. Both raised in Europe, Sarah and Ilir met with working at Ballet Arizona. These two sweethearts opted for a non-traditional wedding, that included a small, family only ceremony and dinner. Making their big day even more special was Sarah’s twin brother serving as a one-of-a-kind officiant.

Over the years the couple has gathered friends from around the world and they wanted to be sure to include them on their special day, so they hosted a unique brunch at the same venue the following day, along with another small reception in Madison, WI a few months later. What a fabulous idea!

Take a look at their beautiful photos, taken by Photographer  Beau Campbell

Wedding Paper Divas Ladies’ Brunch

There couldn’t be a more fabulous morning then one filled with brunch, girl-time and fun DIY’s. So, when we decided to host an intimate brunch and DIY party in honor of Wedding Paper Divas’ new DIY collection, we knew that the day would surely be one to remember. The talented Rebekah Carey styled the event, which was beautifully captured by Jessica Burke. Bianca of A Fabulous Challenge put together a stunning and oh-so-fun wedding invitation DIY for guests to do and Priscilla Francine hosted a lash bar, which was guest favorite. Loop flowers filled the room with stunning and vibrant blooms while guests took sips out of vintage 60’s tumblers from Frances Lane.

Real Wedding: Amanda & Jon

This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Amanda and Jon, that took place at The Arboretum at Penn State in State College, PA. The couple met at Penn State and are huge Penn State football fans, so they chose to have the wedding ceremony on campus.
