Katie & Marc’s Outdoor Engagement Session in Arizona
categories: Engagement

Sometimes you hear a couple’s story and you just know they’re extra special. Katie and Marc’s story is one of those stories. Fully Alive Photography, an Elite Circle photographer who seems to have a knack for bringing out the most natural and pure beauty in people, photographed the couple for their outdoor engagement session in Arizona and we love it!

For today’s post, we’re mostly going to let the couple tell their story because we wouldn’t do it justice.

How did you meet? We met working at Starbucks at Rural and Baseline in Tempe in 2002…there weren’t any sparks at that point. I wasn’t interested in a relationship (much less Marc) because I had my heart set on going overseas to serve people living in poverty and do humanitarian work. As for Marc, he was really content as a single. And while he may have had some interest in me, he knew I wanted to go overseas and he certainly didn’t want to get in the way of that. Before I left the US, Marc gave me his email address so I could send him my newsletters. So for years, our only communication was me sending out mass email newsletters from the Middle East and West Africa. 

I returned to the US in 2013. I knew it would be a difficult transition coming back to the US, but I thought I’d be fine. I had already spent years traveling the world and living in other countries as a single woman. How hard would America be? But I had no idea what I was in for. Marc, on the other hand, knew. He had seen how other people struggled when they came back from serving overseas. So he committed to pray for me—even though we hadn’t seen each other in nearly a decade.

So as I navigated the traumatic terrain of reverse culture shock, heartbreak, and loss over the next year, Marc faithfully prayed for me and emailed me encouragement in the form of written prayers, stories from his life, Bible verses, and links to songs. I can’t tell you how many times I would read one of Marc‘s emails in which he shared just the thing I needed to hear or confirmed just what I was sensing from God. I could tell Marc was special, and that he had a really close relationship with God. And that was attractive. I eventually got up the nerve to email and tell him I was interested in him—romantically—and that if it was mutually, he should do something about it!

What is your favorite thing about each other? Katie: For me, it’s what I first found attractive in him: his obedience and faithfulness to God. Marc: I most like her capacity to feel deeply.

Katie and Marc’s Outdoor Engagement Session in Arizona took place at Tempe Center for the Arts and Tempe Town Lake- the couple says the locations represent many things about us: our love for Tempe, music, and modern architecture.

The Proposal: The couple went out for a fancy meal to celebrate their 2 year anniversary but ended up being stuck for hours on the freeway due to an accident and eating at Chipotle instead (they are having Chipotle cater their wedding as a nod to this special anniversary!) . So, the next day, we met up to walk through a large city park. Marc was determined to find the perfect spot. So for the next two hours, we wandered the park as he insisted we needed to find the right spot to sit down so he could stretch. It was a legitimate excuse. He was recovering from a mild running injury, and I knew he’d been instructed to stretch multiple times a day.

Did I know that a proposal was coming? Well, I did think, Maybe he’ll propose. I knew it was bound to come at some point over the next few months. But honestly, I didn’t think this was the day. So I took his insistence on finding THE right spot as a challenge. After all, my guy is really particular when he knows what he’s looking for. We would most certainly find it. And we did find it. Well, nearly. We sat down in front of a parking lot underneath a dying arbor and he started telling me how thankful he is for me and about how much we had grown over the past two years, and I thought, “Oh, he’s being so sweet for our 2 year anniversary!”

Then, after a pause, he said, “Nope, this isn’t the right spot.” It was true. I was kind of afraid that spiders might start falling from the dead vine above us. So we backtracked about 50 yards to a nearby fountain in the sunshine and THAT was the perfect spot where he simply said, “You want to marry me, right?” “Are you asking me to marry you?” I asked. And he had the biggest smile on his face as he said, “Yes!” and got down on one kneed and formally asked.

Later, he said, “It may not have been very romantic, but I hope it was memorable.” Memorable, yes. And it WAS romantic!

How did you choose Fully Alive Photography for your outdoor engagement session in Arizona? Choosing Fully Alive Photography was one of our very first decisions in the whole wedding planning process (technically, our first decision was cupcakes; second was deciding on Fully Alive Photography). We had seen a lot of Tracy’s work and we loved her style and artistry. As we’ve gotten to know her, we’ve also seen how naturally she creates beauty and fun all around her. We knew we were hiring the best photographer who would help us relax and have fun during our photo sessions, as well as really capture our personalities as individuals and as a couple.

Ideal Date Night: Sunset on the patio of Postino’s Annex—me drinking a white wine and Marc eating a bowl of fresh potato chips while listening to a retro playlist.

We love the quiet strength Katie and Marc exude. There’s no frills, no fuss. Just a closeness and love that is sort of…ethereal (the gorgeous glowing sun that Tracy expertly captured doesn’t hurt either!).

Katie and Marc, our hearts are full- we thank you for sharing your story and photos with us and we wish you much love and happiness on your wedding day (and every day thereafter)!

Wedding Registry Find: Bedding from CStudio Home
categories: favor and gift ideas

Wedding registry items range from the frivolous (hey there pancake warmer) to the practical (bowls and towels, towels and bowls) and while we do support your desire to register for “off the beaten path” items that you know you will use, we fully support your practical side that tells you to focus on the stuff you’ll use daily! In the spirit of being newlyweds who may just need the comfiest bedding to lounge around in all day, we share our latest wedding registry find with you: CStudio Home.

Cstudio Home is a brand created by The Company Store, a bedding company that have been experts in creating high quality bedding for over 100 years. The Company Store came out with Cstudio Home…a young, refreshing brand that still holds the standards of high quality bedding.

Bedding is pretty much a given for any wedding registry and as we all know, being limited to only your wedding registry store bedding options just won’t cut it. So why do we think CStudio Home is a great wedding registry find? First and foremost, CStudio Home’s quality is top notch. We personally cuddled up to one of their comforters and we promise, it’s the good stuff (no flimsy scratchy cheap backing here!). Second, the colors are vibrant, the bedding is soft but durable, and, we realize this may seem picky, but the stitching is consistent.

Besides comforters, CStudio Home carries duvet covers, pillows, sheet sets, blankets, and quilts.

We like to think of these as the napping blankets- cozy up to your sweets with one of these and we hardly think you’ll be able to resist an afternoon snooze

And in the same cozy comfy lay-all-Sunday-in-bed color range, CStudio Home offers designer throw pillows that look good with the bedding but don’t perfectly match, making you look like a pro when it comes to interior design.

While the CStudio Home site doesn’t feature a wedding registry, we love that the website is streamlined which makes shopping quite straightforward- you can easily choose the patterns and items you want to receive for your wedding and just send the address to a guest who’s looking to treat you to something you really want and will use for many blissful years to come.

You’ll find these bedding sets and more at CStudio Home…happy shopping!

elegant with a touch of glam wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_eyes-2-see-photography_-jw-marriott-desert-ridge

Sara and Eric, who live in New York, chose to say “I Do” at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa with their family and friends by their side. Their elegant with a touch of glam wedding in Arizona showcased the beautiful weather and scenery of the desert right before the heat of the summer set in and you’ll love the couple’s decor decisions which include classic details with the perfect touch of sparkle!

Sara recalls: …it was important to us to have our friends and family around us the entire weekend. The JW Marriott was the perfect place – as most of our guests were from out of town, we wanted them to enjoy their AZ experience. There was so much to do at the hotel and the weather was gorgeous. We got to spend the entire weekend with our guests enjoying the resort and celebrating

Elegant with a Touch of Glam Wedding First Look: Sara and Eric had their first look in JW Mariott’s half-turn staircase which boasts impressive windows and a beautiful staircase. The couple definitely approved of this location for such a special moment.

Elegant with a Touch of Glam Wedding Ceremony: The couple exchanged vows at the Ballroom Lawn which boasts a beautiful view of the Sonoran Mountains. Your Event Florist created a lovely chuppah for the ceremony that included peonies, ranunculi, and roses.

Elegant with a Touch of Glam Wedding Favorite Moment: Our favorite moment was at the conclusion of the ceremony — after we danced our way back down the aisle and stole off to a small alcove just inside the doors of the hotel.  We sat down on a bench and shared two minutes just the two of us before rejoining the festivities.  We can’t remember what we said to each other and there aren’t any pictures.  All we know is that we’ll never forget that moment because it when we realized we were actually married.  It was all smiles.

Elegant with a Touch of Glam Wedding Reception: Sara and Eric had a clear vision for what they wanted their wedding reception to look like. Sara tells us: When designing the wedding, we looked for opportunities where we could insert some glitz and decided that we really wanted our head table and our cake to stand out.  The backdrop for the head table was a black curtain with hanging crystals down the center and it created the look of a cascading waterfall that culminated with our sparkling table at its base.

The floral centerpieces were light and bright- they provided a nice contrast to the dark linens and black chiavari chairs- and crystals and tiny hanging votives added a shimmering glow.

…the cake, that was the true embodiment of our theme.  With one glittered layer to juxtapose the three white layers and detailed flower work—it was breathtaking.

Garland for Weddings | Wedding Trend
categories: floral inspiration, reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration

When you hear the word garland you may automatically think of holiday decor but garland has been making it’s way into the wedding world for a few months now and we’re delighted to see how our Elite Circle florists are using garland for weddings.

Garland for Weddings: This design from Butterfly Petals, using lemon-leaf greenery, lavender roses and purple carnations, caught our eye because this particular staircase is very dramatic and often brides descend it on their way to the ceremony or couples use if for their reception grand entrance- the garland is a beautiful and colorful touch!

Garland for Weddings: The long, draped style of using greenery and some floral elements allows florists to cover the center of a long feasting, or “King’s” table, banisters and even sweetheart table chairs.

Garland for Weddings: This centerpiece is uniquely designed- it utilizes eucaltypus greenery, airplants, succulents, purple stock and purple carnations to create a light and airy floral feature.

A Fresh White and Black Wedding at SoHo63
categories: fabulous reception sites, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, real weddings, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

McKenna and Klayton’s fresh white and black wedding at SoHo63 is just so pretty you’re going to love it- the bride is radiant, the groom is handsome and the venue allows for the couple’s personal design wishes to shine. One of their biggest priorities was to have gorgeous flowers and the (almost) all-white arrangements are stunning!

McKenna recalls: The most important thing to us when we were planning were the flowers. We really wanted to make a statement with the floral décor. From the floating arrangements to the massive wishing tree that was filled with lush flowers around the base, it was truly a floral dream for us.

The couple included all their siblings in their bridal party- don’t they look like a fun group?! McKenna’s sister created all the flower arrangements except for the hanging floral chandeliers at the reception and we think she did an amazing job.

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

A Fresh White and Black Wedding Ceremony: We had a string duo during our ceremony, playing some untypical wedding music, including Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” for McKenna’s {my} processional…McKenna’s brother, Trevor, was our officiant. Our vows were touching and personalized by the bride and groom, and really captured the love that we have for each other now and for the rest of time.

Saying our vows to each other and in front of our family and friends was truly a moment that will forever be in our hearts. 

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

SoHo63’s Tribeca Terrace is modeled after a city rooftop promenade- it provides an intimate space for ceremonies or outdoor revelry that is truly unique to Arizona

A Fresh White and Black Wedding Reception: The modern design of SoHo63’s Gramercy Ballroom was a perfect fit for McKenna and Klayton’s white wedding vision; shimmering linens, silver chiavari chairs and fresh centerpieces all came together to make this wedding gorgeous but it was the hanging floral chandeliers that really added the wow factor!

McKenna explains how she and Klayton added personal touches to their cocktail hour and reception: Our cocktail napkins had cute True or False questions about our relationship that our guests could read while enjoying cocktail hour…and instead of table numbers we added the locations we have traveled to and a quick story on each table about our trips there.

We loved our custom wine box with the lyrics from our first dance song, Ellie Goulding’s “How Long Will I Love You” engraved on the top. We put our favorite wine from our first trip together in it, locked it up with love letters from each other, and will open it up on our first anniversary. We will repeat this on each anniversary.

This sweetheart table is so dreamy! We love the shimmer, the fancy chairs, and the chandelier placed perfectly overhead!

The Venue: We really wanted a clean, classic, timeless look. We both agreed that when we look back on our photos for years to come to have a classic white wedding. We loved the way it looked with the venue of SoHo as it is such a clean, modern space. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the white and black wedding. It was truly everything we dreamed of.

Advice for couples: The only thing we would have changed was not to rush everything, and truly slow down and enjoy the moments leading up to ceremony.

McKenna and Klayton, thank you for sharing your fresh white and black wedding with us and congratulations!
