Lavender Wedding Inspiration | Arizona Wedding Inspiration
categories: bridal fashions, cakes and sweets, fabulous reception sites, favor and gift ideas, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, photography, real weddings, reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration, what's hot in rentals

Lavender wasn’t supposed to be a big color for weddings this year but this pretty purple hue is making a statement regardless! We think we know why lavender is a popular choice for couples planning their weddings: it’s purple (which is always in style for weddings) without being “too purple” and it conveys a delicate prettiness that’s appropriate for any wedding. From backyard get-togethers to grand ballrooms, lavender is lovely!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration: A color palette that includes lavender and other bright shades makes for some pretty gorgeous wedding attire. This bridal party’s attire is anything but boring thanks to the varied shades of purple!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration: Escort/place cards get a touch of lavender- they hint at what’s to come. And pretty much any stationery piece can include the light purple hue- table numbers, menus, signature cocktail signs,etc.

Lavender can be light and airy when paired with lighter colors but it can also be quite sophisticated when placed with darker hues such as deep red.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type | Schaffer’s Bridal
categories: bridal fashions, Tips and Advice, Wedding Inspiration

Elite Circle bridal shop Schaffer’s Bridal wrote a blog about how to shop for wedding dresses by body type and we are thrilled to share this valuable information with you!

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: Schaffer’s says for women with hourglass figures, form fitting dresses help enhance their curves best. Mermaid and fit-and-flare styles easily come to mind, but don’t forget about wedding dresses that have exaggerated features like a low drop waist or low backs.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: If you’re a woman with a petite body type you will want to look for types of wedding dresses that create the illusion of a long torso, and elongate your legs. Keep it simple, any detailing should be small and limited to the bodice.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: When it comes to tall and thin body types, keep in mind one word: simple. The more simplistic the dress, the less your body is lost in the dress.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: For apple shaped women you want to find a wedding dress that will draw attention upwards and skirts that flow out in an A-line fashion to evenly portray you proportions in the most flattering way.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: When it comes to a pear shaped body type, you want to look for dresses that highlight the narrowness of your mid-section with either while flowing down in an A formation or fit-and-flare silhouette.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: It’s up to you whether you want to show off your figure or seek more coverage. You can either create curves with a dropped waist or mermaid style, or you can find more coverage in an A-line or empire dress.

Charity Event in Arizona | Project NACE: Design Through the Decades
categories: bridal fashions, entertainment, Meet Our Friends, Wedding Inspiration, Wedding Resources

The Phoenix chapter of NACE (a professional catering and event industry group) hosts a yearly Arizona fundraising event called Project NACE and this year the theme was Design Through the Decades. We look forward to  participating in this creative fundraiser every year (we had a ton of fun creating our dress!) and doing our part to raise money for Singleton Moms which supports single parents with cancer.

Our dress, a 1960’s mod frock, was made with copies of our magazine and is paired with a fun clutch that is also made from our magazines!

One of our Elite Circle wedding venues, Tempe Mission Palms, also participated in the fashion show. With the hotel being built in 1985, it was only fitting to design a dress from the 1980’s that included actual palm leaves along with pops of neon orange to tie in the orange trees that are all within the beautiful lighted courtyard of the hotel.

Elite Circle bridesmaid shop Bella Bridesmaids added some “real” fashion to the show with some of their gorgeous bridesmaid dresses. The brand new Theia rose gold sequin gown and separates from designer Jenny Yoo were a hit with the crowd.

The chic Twobirds jumpsuit has the same styling options as the convertible dresses (cool, right?) and the soft floral print dress by Donna Morgan has a super feminine silhouette

There were also decade-themed tables designed by the members of NACE- all centerpieces were created by Creative Occasions and the chairs and chargers were provided by Classic Party Rentals. You can see that the Project NACE event is a charity event in Arizona that’s not to be missed!

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.

A White Blush and Silver Wedding at Villa Siena
categories: bridal fashions, cakes and sweets, fabulous reception sites, real weddings, Wedding Inspiration

White Blush and Silver Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_villa-siena

Krystal and JP’s white blush and silver wedding at the Tuscan-inspired wedding venue Villa Siena was a classic and pretty day with family and friends joyfully celebrating the happy couple. Krystal’s daughter Koren was by her mom’s side every step of the way including during the toasts- the 7 year old, unbeknownst to her parents, wrote her own speech and delivered it beautifully at the reception!

White Blush and Silver Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_villa-siena

Krystal was stunning in her WTOO wedding gown from Mariee Bridal- it featured a ball gown skirt and beaded top with a sweetheart neckline (we think her daughter loved it as much as she did!).

How great is JP’s reaction during the first look? We love these moments!

White Blush and Silver Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_villa-siena White Blush and Silver Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_villa-siena

The Venue: We knew we wanted something intimate, timeless, and romantic. After viewing several venues, we quickly chose Villa Siena because it had lush scenery and an elegant, old-world ambiance. 

White Blush and Silver Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_villa-siena

Sweetness: Wrapped around my bouquet was a necklace that belonged to my great grandmother and one of the most sentimental gifts that I was given was by my aunt. She gave me my something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a six pence for my shoe,

White Blush and Silver Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_villa-siena

White blush and silver wedding ceremony: From the beginning it was important that pick the right officiant. Our officiant, Matt, spent a lot of time with us and asked us a lot of in depth questions to get to know us. The result was a traditional, meaningful, and at times, funny, ceremony that allowed our friends and families a glimpse into our relationship. A lot of our guests told us how wonderful and sweet they thought the ceremony was. And most importantly, my 7 year old daughter Koren was included. We had a sand ceremony (with blush, silver, and ivory sand) to symbolize our family merging and never being separated.

We also loved our bag piper. He is so talented! He played as guests entered the ceremony space and waited for the ceremony to begin and then played again after the ceremony as JP and I walked down the aisle. It was homage to JP’s Scottish heritage and my Irish heritage.

White blush and silver wedding reception: Villa Siena’s Firenze Ballroom was beautifully decorated with white linens and blush and silver accents; tall centerpieces consisted of grand crystal and silver candelabra topped with blush, pink and ivory roses and hydrangeas.

JP is a wine collector which fit in perfectly with the Tuscan feel of the venue. Wine corks held the place cards and we had a customized mini wine barrel to hold the wedding cards…as a gift to our guests, we designed stemless wine glasses to commemorate our wedding day.

Favorite part of the day: As we were planning our wedding day, someone advised us to take a quiet moment together to look at our guests enjoying themselves. So as soon as we sat down at our sweetheart table, we took a moment to hold hands and watch our guests for a few moments and saw they were laughing and smiling and having a wonderful time. It was all of our favorite people in one room celebrating.

White blush and silver wedding sweets: The couple had a candy bar filled with their favorite childhood candies along with a gorgeous wedding cake by Piece of Cake Desserts. The wedding cake was a three tier white almond infusion with an almond cream cheese filling and a buttercream frosting. The ivory cake was adorned with silver pearls and a design that mimicked the beading of my wedding dress, complete with a cascade of blush and light pink roses.

Krystal recalls a big surprise from the wedding day (the good kind!): A surprise came from the best man and JP’s brother, Rob. As we took a drive down Arizona Avenue in downtown Chandler, we spotted a towering billboard, which congratulated us.
