Meet our Omni Montelucia Staycation Giveaway Winners!
categories: fabulous reception sites, Giveaways and Contests

Just imagine how excited you would be if you won a two-night stay at the luxurious Omni Montelucia in Scottsdale. We think there would be some serious squeals! The resort is an oasis in the desert that boasts stunning Spanish architecture, flowing fountains, refreshing pools, and a world-class spa. We partnered with Elite Circle wedding venue Omni Montelucia in our last issue to give away a two-night stay package valued at $1,500 and Tara & Brian, an adorable Arizona couple getting married in November, are our staycation giveaway winners!

Here’s the couple receiving their certificate that treats them to a two night stay in a resort-view room, 50 minute spa services for two at Joya Spa, champagne or gelato at Joya Terrace, and two fitness classes at Joya Fitness:

How did you and Brian meet? Brian and I met in 2013 at a company we both worked for at the time. A few weeks later we went on our first date and have been inseparable ever since! 
 
In 2015 we went on a trip to Costa Rica with a group of our closest friends and he surprised me and proposed to me in front of a waterfall! 
What are you most excited about as far as your wedding day? I think what I’m most excited about is celebrating our love with our family and friends. They are the ones who have witnessed our amazing journey from day one.
 
We have a feeling Tara and Brian are really going to enjoy the pool!

Guests had traveled from all over the world to attend Caroline and Troy’s wedding and they were treated to a stunning sweets display made by the bride’s mother- the details and artistry are incredible! An 8-tier chocolate ganache and passion fruit wedding cake was the gorgeous centerpiece.

Caroline’s mother, who seems to be full of talent and surprises, hired Samba dancers and drummers to surprise Troy. As a result, this fun and elegant wedding was taken to a whole new level!
