From the sparkly shoes and breathtaking gown to the ultra- feminine bouquet, stylish groom’s attire, pale pink bridesmaid dresses, natural textured linens and mercury glass vases, Maya and Mike’s wedding is modern chic perfection! The fun-loving couple said their “I Do’s” among the dramatic mountain views and desert foliage that is North Scottsdale’s signature landscape; the wedding day was graced with a touch of luck too- the week leading up to the wedding experienced over 100 degree temps but Saturday brought a cool and breezy 88 degrees- exactly what you wish for in Arizona!
Theirs is a story of flirtation and humor- they met at a Halloween party where Mike made Maya laugh so much that night that it was enough for me to develop a crush and Mike admits to loving Maya’s silly side.
Maya and Mike’s 3 Words for their Wedding: Beautiful, fun, chic
I think this might be one of my favorite pictures from Maya and Mike’s wedding- it has such spirit and joy!
Maya: His light-heartedness and his ability to make me smile & laugh often
Mike: She can do 1000 things at once and is always finding ways to make our life together better in some way. She’s also pretty cheesy which adds romance that wouldn’t have been there otherwise!
I love how the courtyard at DC Ranch was decorated for the reception- there is an easy elegance that is just so appealing
Favorite memory: So many favorite moments but I would say when we walked in together and saw everyone we love in one place smiling and so happy, it’s an indescribable feeling to have everyone in one place wishing you the best.
Advice: Even though all the planning paid off, there were moments towards the end where I had wished I kept things more simple (and maybe eloped). Until the day of, It was really overwhelming. My advice would be to know upfront how much you’re willing to put into your big day and be realistic. You will want to quit but if you don’t, it will all pay off!
Congratulations Maya and Mike and THANK YOU for sharing your beautiful day with us!
