Alexa and Ian’s spring Phoenix Art Museum Wedding has all kinds of wedding goodness- the couple has a deep love for family and tradition, they included beautiful desert inspired details and the pair didn’t let a little rain dampen their spirits (they were actually happy that it was a rainy day even though it meant moving their ceremony from it’s original outdoor location!).

What was most important to you as you two planned your wedding? When you first get started, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed by all the details. It was important to us to stay focused on what our wedding day was truly about, not the dress, the flowers or the food, it was about our dreams coming true and finally getting married! When you go in with that attitude, nothing can get in your way of having the perfect day.

We were drawn to Alexa and Ian’s wedding for many reasons but one aspect we particularly admire are the choices they made throughout their wedding day- many details had meaning and were chosen carefully. For example, we’ll let Alexa explain the meaning behind the nuggets of the Sikhote- Alin meteor they gifted each  groomsmen:  Ian and I love astronomy and he wanted to get his three brothers a groomsmen gift that was timeless, unique and irreplaceable – so pieces of meteorite came to mind.  He bought 4 pieces (1 for himself too) of the same asteroid that collided with Russia in 1947. These pieces of meteorite will be around virtually forever, and we liked the idea of the four brothers being able to pass them down to our next generation and keeping these timepieces in the family.

A second first look…the tish and bedeken took place where Rabbi Yossi Levertov led a traditional orthodox service. It was as if we saw each other for the first time all over again when Ian came to veil Alexa. The cheering, singing and overall energy was so exciting and the anticipation for the wedding ceremony to come could be felt throughout the room.

A Phoenix Art Museum Wedding Ceremony: The couple had planned to get married outside but since there was rain, their vendor team relocated it indoors. This change didn’t seem to phase the couples at all and the result was a gorgeous ceremony, regardless of the indoor location. Since Alexa really wanted details that celebrated the desert, her florist, Buttefly Petals, designed flower arrangements for the chuppah that blended greenery and desert inspired flowers perfectly.

Looking back, what was your favorite moment of the day? There were so many special moments, especially during our ceremony. We had our parents with us under the Chuppah and our siblings surrounding us as our bridal party. If we had to pick one, it would be when Ian kissed his bride! The music started up, the audience cheered, we were surrounded by so much love from our family and friends, and in that moment we were officially husband and wife. All the planning and anticipation came down to that moment, it was surreal.

A Phoenix Art Museum Wedding Reception: Following the intimate ceremony, our guests were offered a variety of hors d’oeuvres and an open bar at cocktail hour. The cocktail hour concluded with guests being invited into the reception room. The elegant yet funky decor was enhanced throughout the reception space utilizing a mix of metallic vases with gold charger plates and gray linens against the pop of rich floral arrangements incorporating succulents and cacti.

A Phoenix Art Museum Wedding Sweets Table: A mini cactus-topped cake was the centerpiece of a lavish dessert table that included cupcakes, jelly beans, and chocolates. There was something for everyone at this sweets table!

Any surprises or things you would change? Aside from the rainy weather in sunny Arizona, there were truly no surprises. And if there were, we didn’t know about them! A Day to Cherish provided an amazing team that kept the entire day running smoothly from start to finish. We just showed up and had the best day ever, they took care of the rest.

Congratulations Alexa and Ian and thank you for sharing your Phoenix Art Museum wedding with us!
