With most of their guests arriving from out of town, Sara and Johnathan planned a wedding at Arizona Biltmore that was luxurious and entertaining; from the sentimental ceremony to the grand reception, you’re sure to fall in love with this gorgeous wedding. The couple describes their day as an elegant and dreamy fairytale and we agree wholeheartedly… have a look see!
Sara’s modern bouquet of white phaleonopsis orchids designed by Angelic Grove was so gorgeous!
The ceremony space was uniquely designed and was a hit with the guests. The centerpiece of the space was a chuppah draped with sheer fabric accented with strands of crystals and fluerettes; there was also a similar version placed at the beginning of the aisle making the impact of the structures even greater. Lining the all white runway-style aisle were huge glass vases and white planter boxes filled with greenery and white calla lilies.
In addition to the stunning design, there were also special moments infused into the ceremony. The glass that Jonathan broke under the chuppah was placed inside an engraved bag that all of his first cousins have used at their weddings and each member of Johnathan and Sara’s immediate family read blessings to the couple. Even sweeter, Sara’s grandfather led the reading of the traditional Seven Blessings.
Favorite Memory: Being surrounded by everyone in the world that we love!
The reception was decorated with glamorous white and silver touches highlighted with soft purple- hued uplighting. Tables were dressed with high and low centerpieces, oversized glass containers, shimmering linens and chargers, silver coated chocolate bon bons, monogrammed menus with silver and crystal accents, an abundance of white floral, and of course, candles. Long crystal chandeliers were hung from the ceiling, making the whole room sparkle.
Guests were invited to relax in the ultra-glam lounge adjacent to the ballroom
There was a Champagne Fairy…need we say more?

The Honeymoon: We went to The Jalousie Plantation in St. Lucia (it is now called Sugar Beach). Jon decided that he wanted to surprise me with a honeymoon destination, so I did not find out where we were going until I got to the airport. All I knew was that it a warm and sunny beach trip was in my future!
Congratulations Sara and Johnathan and thank you for sharing your day with us!
