Best Day Ever Wedding _Phoenix Bride and Groom_Victoria Canada Weddings and Events_Arizona Biltmore_Keith and Melissa Photographers

Bride Kaytie, who previously worked for event planner Victoria Canada of Victoria Canada Weddings + Events, described her wedding as, “the dreamiest day” and once you get a look at it, you’ll understand why! The couple had their out of town guests in mind while planning their wedding so they chose Arizona Biltmore for their wedding venue which, they say, personifies “Arizona and winter comfy”. The details are gorgeous, the couple is so in love, there’s a few fun surprises, and overall, the planning that went into the day ended up making it Kaytie and Alex’s best day ever wedding!

When your wedding planner used to be your boss, you know there are some fun things in store…

One thing you’ll notice right away about Kaytie and Alex is how truly HAPPY they are together. They radiate love!

Best Day Ever Wedding | Favorite Moment: One of my favorite moments from the day, hands down, was the first look because Alex turned around and his eyes filled with huge tears (and let’s just say, Alex is NOT a crier). I also loved our vows because I thought they perfectly described the way we feel about one another and I was so glad we didn’t share them with each other ahead of time.

Best Day Ever Wedding | Color Palette:​ Kaytie and Alex chose cream and blush as the main colors for their decor but included navy with touches of metallic gold throughout to steer clear of their wedding being too muted.

Best Day Ever Wedding | The Ceremony:​ Kaytie and Alex exchanged vows in Arizona Biltmore’s Paradise Garden on a picture perfect Arizona day. The aisle was lined with rose petals and large floral arrangements framed the space beautifully; Victoria surprised the couple with a custom monogram that was applied to the mirrored pedestals.

Best Day Ever Wedding | Cocktail Hour: Cocktail hour on the lawn included a Nebraska football themed bar as a nod to Alex’s loyalty to his team. Kaytie recalls: I was chomping at the bit for months because I surprised Alex with a signature cocktail called, “Go Big Red” because he bleeds all things Nebraska.

Another fun fact, as told to us by Kaytie: Having football in common, Victoria and Alex were both very in tune with where one another stood when it came to their schools (Texas Tech and Nebraska); therefore, when a huge group of wedding crashers attempted to crash our wedding, not only did Vic spot them right away but she ended up busting them by putting them through a test of questions, including, “oh so you went to school with Alex at Iowa State?” Unfortunately for the crashers, they said, “yes!” Vic said, “mmm too bad because he went to Nebraska. Time to go”…we all got the biggest kick out of it because she’s such a badass.

Best Day Ever Wedding _Phoenix Bride and Groom_Victoria Canada Weddings and Events_Arizona Biltmore_Keith and Melissa Photographers

The “fun facts” cards displayed throughout cocktail hour shared anecdotes about Kaytie and Alex’s love story; the escort card display was very special to Kaytie— the navy blue frame and fabric covered display board was built by Alex and Kaytie’s father.

This sign was another surprise from Victoria—just one more of the perks of having worked for a wedding planner!

Best Day Ever Wedding | The Reception: Kaytie and Alex’s dinner reception was in Arizona Biltmore’s Grand Ballroom where a mix of large feasting tables and round tables were set with cream linens, gold chiavari chairs, tall clear vases topped with grand cream and blush floral arrangements, and gold details throughout.

Best Day Ever Wedding | More Surprises: My 3 best friends are 100% Greek. That being said, there has always been a long-standing joke that I think I’m Greek (and now Alex, too). The 3 of them surprised us with a “Big Fat Greek Wedding” style dance! It was seriously the biggest crack up and such a blast.

Also, Victoria knew that since Alex and I have been dating we have always collected and dated the corks from the bottles of wine we drink…well, she told the catering manager at The Biltmore this little secret and when we got back to our room that night, there was a huge bag of corks waiting for us from all of the bottles that were opened at the wedding, it was the cherry on top to the perfect day.

Best Day Ever Wedding | Wedding Planner Love: When I was a sophomore in college, I had my sites set on wedding planning. To make a long story short, I ended up interviewing with Victoria and the rest was history! ​I worked for her for about 5 years and still do events with her from time to time when she needs an extra set of hands! She is honestly next level when it comes to anything event related. I remember watching her at weddings in awe and thinking to myself, “I can’t even imagine what it would be like if she could do my wedding one day.” Well, fast forward through years of friendship, tons of incredibly stunning events, and lots of wine and laughs later, she did end up planning our wedding! …and of course, just as I imagined way back when, it was a dream having her there through the whole process!!! 

Best Day Ever Wedding _Phoenix Bride and Groom_Victoria Canada Weddings and Events_Arizona Biltmore_Keith and Melissa Photographers

Best Day Ever Wedding | Wedding Day Love: This probably sounds cliche but there isn’t a single thing either of us would change. At the end of the night, as we were walking back to our room, all we could say was how completely flawless, ​stunning, and dreamy the whole day was. It was such a blast on so many levels! If possible, we would relive the day over and over and over again!

Congratulations Kaytie and Alex and thank you for sharing your BEST DAY EVER wedding with us!

White Wedding Inspiration | Arizona Biltmore
categories: fabulous reception sites, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

white wedding inspiration _phoenix-bride-and-groom_arizona-biltmore_melissa-jill-photography

Arizona Biltmore is a classic through and through. Nowhere else in the state do you find the rich history, iconic architecture and stunning gardens like you do at this Elite Circle property so when we received the photos from this white wedding inspiration styled shoot, we couldn’t wait to share them (in fact, we liked them so much some of them were published in our Winter Spring issue)!

white wedding inspiration _phoenix-bride-and-groom_arizona-biltmore_melissa-jill-photography

White weddings are back in style in the best way! Couples are choosing all white color palettes to create a crisp and classic look- the romance an almost all-white wedding evokes is unmatched. Of this inspiration shoot, event coordinator and stylist Victoria Canada said, “Whites and ivories were layered to create a rich look that is clean, timeless and relevant.”

white wedding inspiration _phoenix-bride-and-groom_arizona-biltmore_melissa-jill-photography

White Wedding Inspiration: The paper products created by Celebrations in Paper feature linear shapes that complement Arizona Biltmore’s 1920’s architecture. When choosing a wedding venue, we always advise couples to consider the overall style of their wedding and specific details. When the styles of both the wedding decor and venue complement each other, beautiful things happen!

White Wedding Inspiration: “We wanted to keep this shoot very Classic Waldorf Astoria,” explains event coordinator Victoria Canada of Victoria Canada Events, who staged the shoot among the resort’s lush gardens. “The neutral tones actually have a hint of blush in them. It was a tasteful but opulent setting to inspire brides and grooms.”

white wedding inspiration _phoenix-bride-and-groom_arizona-biltmore_melissa-jill-photography white wedding inspiration _phoenix-bride-and-groom_arizona-biltmore_melissa-jill-photography

White Wedding Inspiration: The influence of Frank Lloyd Wright, who consulted with Albert McArthur on the design of the resort, is what makes Arizona Biltmore so beloved. The details in the styled shoot play off the “Biltmore Block” design (the pre-cast blocks were made from desert sand on-site and created in 34 different geometric patterns inspired by the trunk of a palm tree) and the luxury of the resort as a whole.

Colorful Arizona Wedding Inspiration: Arizona Biltmore Styled Shoot
categories: bridal fashions, cakes and sweets, fabulous reception sites, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, from the consultants, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

Here at Phoenix Bride & Groom, we pride ourselves on sharing the most inspiring styled shoots, real weddings, and great finds with you, our loyal readers, but one thing you may not realize (but probably totally appreciate) is that we only share what we believe is achievable by real couples planning their weddings. Completely over the top inspiration shoots are fun to look at and dream about but when we publish a styled shoot, it’s because the design is inspiring and the details are within reach of Arizona’s couples planning weddings. Today’s styled shoot (which of course utilizes the talents of local Arizona wedding vendors) is one of the most colorful Arizona wedding inspiration shoots we’ve seen and we’re sure you will adore it!

A bright color palette, thoughtful details, and an iconic setting await!

Phoenix Bride and Groom_Colorful Arizona wedding inspiration_Melissa Jill Photography Phoenix Bride and Groom_Colorful Arizona wedding inspiration_Melissa Jill Photography

From Victoria Canada of Victoria Canada Weddings & Events: This colorful styled shoot was inspired by the iconic stain glass at the entrance to the Arizona Biltmore Resort.  Frank Lloyd Wright was the consulting architect for the building of this historic resort in 1928 and it is known as the “Jewel of the Desert”.  I styled the shoot to have vibrant jewel tone colors and patterns that reflected the famous Biltmore Block. 

Colorful Arizona Wedding Inspiration Details:

-Cake designed with stained glass motif to reflect a clean, modern and colorful feel

-Floating “Stained Glass” as a ceremony backdrop

-Laser cut wood stationery elements that are normally created with paper- this reflects Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous dedication to nature inspired design

Colorful Arizona Wedding Inspiration Details:

-Acrylic ghost chairs with custom Biltmore Block vinyl appliques

-Color Blocked Bouquet

The bride’s gown was “Lana” by Willowby- it features a statuesque profile and lace panels that marry modern and vintage beautifully

Phoenix Bride and Groom_Colorful Arizona wedding inspiration_Melissa Jill Photography

When Victoria Canada designs any event, whether it be a wedding, ceremony, brunch, or rehearsal dinner, she always includes special touches and design details that tie the entire event together. For example, not only does the signature cocktail have an adorable Frank Lloyd Wright style stir stick, it also complements the color palette of this colorful Arizona wedding inspiration shoot.

A Post Wedding Brunch at Arizona Biltmore
categories: fabulous reception sites, floral inspiration, from the consultants, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

When you get married and have a wedding planner like Victoria Canada of Victoria Canada Weddings & Events who thinks of EVERYTHING, you’re probably going to have some sort of post wedding brunch- an event the morning after your wedding is just the loveliest way to wrap up a wedding weekend, say goodbye to your guests, and decompress (as long as you have someone helping you organize it, otherwise it’s kind of stressful!).

Victoria shared a recent post wedding brunch she organized at Arizona Biltmore for her clients Michelle and Brandon who, luckily, happen to be early risers and it’s got everything you want and need for the perfect send off!

Phoenix bride and Groom_post wedding brunch_Victoria Canada Weddings and Events_Arizona Biltmore (12)

Victoria tells us: the bride wanted a French themed event so we really concentrated on having it in the garden area of the Aztec Lawn- the linen was perfect with a bistro feel; we re-purposed the lounge furniture from the wedding the night before to get the most out of the rental fee- it was a little extra for labor but worth it!  

Phoenix bride and Groom_post wedding brunch_Victoria Canada Weddings and Events_Arizona Biltmore (2)

Post Wedding Brunch Tip: We created a buffet with after party essential items like sunscreen, Advil, extra sunglasses etc. and to go boxes and water for guests who needed to eat and hydrate on the run.

Newspapers for guests to read while relaxing had a fun wrap while custom napkins continued the after party theme; the custom Coffee Bar was a hit too. Victoria’s team used herbs in the floral pieces for a French Provincial twist.

Post Wedding Brunch Tip: Inside, we used the Chameleon chairs from the wedding and just took off the chair covers from the night before to make them perfect for a brunch; we had Arizona Biltmore set up a Mimosa and Bloody Mary bar for guests (hair of the dog!)- the Bloody Mary bar was a request of the bride’s and she was so happy with it. 

Phoenix bride and Groom_post wedding brunch_Victoria Canada Weddings and Events_Arizona Biltmore (9)

One of the couple’s favorite elements of the event was lawn games- corn hole and ladder toss made sure guests socialized and got moving a little before travelling back home. Phoenix bride and Groom_post wedding brunch_Victoria Canada Weddings and Events_Arizona Biltmore (8)

Bride Michelle’s best advice for couples planning their weddings: I think the best piece of advice is to not get overwhelmed by all of the things that need to be done. First pick your venue and then decide on what kind of look and or theme you want to go with. Don’t stress over the small things because it won’t go exactly as you plan and that’s ok!

The couple went on their honeymoon a few months after their wedding which they say was nice to wait a couple of months after the wedding hype died down….we went in mid May to the south of Italy (Puglia, Positano, and Tuscany)- it was unreal. 

Congratulations Michelle and Brandon and thank you for choosing us to share your post wedding brunch…and thank you Victoria for submitting it to us!

Arizona Wedding Ceremony and Reception Venue: Arizona Biltmore’s Renovation
categories: destination weddings and honeymoons, fabulous reception sites, Meet Our Friends, reception ideas, Wedding Resources

Elite Circle Wedding Ceremony and Reception Site Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, with it’s spectacular views and luxury accommodations, is an iconic Phoenix vacation and destination wedding venue, but with the news that the resort’s major renovation is complete, we’re sure even more brides and grooms will be seeking this venue for their weddings and guest accommodations. The renovation aimed to significantly enhance the guest experience and includes guest rooms and suites, the spa and salon, and meeting spaces – including ballrooms, pre-function rooms and the Mystery Room, the Prohibition-era “speakeasy” that’s used for themed events – have been re-envisioned with a sophisticated new look. The redesign is chic and contemporary, while maintaining the original Frank Lloyd Wright aesthetic.

Here’s just a bit of what’s in store for guests:

Phoenix Bride and Groom_Arizona Wedding Magazine_Reception Venue_Arizona Biltmore Remodeled Classic King

In the guest rooms, a soft color palette of mist, linen and latte create a light and comfortable ambiance; details echo the use of metals in the original hotel design and of course the famous Biltmore Blocks were incorporated in a particularly beautiful way- the mist-colored wall coverings are embossed with the Frank Lloyd Wright design in a metallic finish.
