Amanda and Kurt’s destination wedding was fueled by their desire for a warm and sunny wedding weekend with friends and family. Amanda recalls: A destination wedding in Arizona seemed perfect to Kurt and I. It was an opportunity for our friends and family to escape to warm weather and enjoy a long weekend together. The focus of our wedding weekend was shaped by our friends and family. I really wanted to get married outside and to be able to have the ceremony and reception at the same location. Sassi was the perfect fit for us. We were able to rent out the entire venue for our wedding which allowed us to use all the beautiful property.
We really love the classic and elegant details in both the bride and groom’s attire along with bright pops of color in the floral designs and reception decor.
The couple wanted the reception to feel like family dinner so they utilized Sassi’s various dining areas and treated their guests to a memorable feast. When guests arrived to dinner there was a family style caprese salad, warm olives and bread. Then they received their plated entrees. It was important to me that the flowers felt natural and not so constructed. I wanted it to feel romantic so we had tons of candle light. I love the circular menus in Italian and the bold navy napkins with the gold chargers. It was eclectic, chic and beautiful. I didn’t want it to be formal but inviting.
We created the after party room to be a full on party! We used a more conversational seating arrangement, a big dance floor and fun linens! We wanted everyone to walk into that room to dance! It was great to offer our guests a different feel and surprise after dinner.
Kurt and Amanda, thank you for sharing your wedding day with us and congratulations!
