Chrissy and Paul’s champagne and pink wedding in Arizona began with a dream—as a little girl, Chrissy saw a wedding being set up at The Phoenician and she vowed then and there it would be her wedding venue. This isn’t as uncommon as you might think! One thing about The Phoenician that we hear consistently from couples who chose to wed there is that there is a strong feeling of nostalgia surrounding the property. We love that Chrissy was able to return to the place she always dreamed of for her wedding and you’ll love everything about it!

Champagne and Pink wedding in Arizona: The ceremony took place at The Phoenician’s Orchid Lawn which offers a lush green backdrop and a fountain; peonies, roses, ranunculus and hydrangeas were used in the floral designs. champagne and pink wedding in Arizona _Phoenix Bride and Groom magazine_Arizona wedding_Ben and Kelly photography_The Phoenician

Champagne and Pink wedding in Arizona: The Phoenician offers several ballrooms for wedding receptions which can accommodate up to 200+ guests; Chrissy and Paul’s decor was a beautiful combination of ivory, champagne and pink with gold accents. The up-lighting provided a feeling of intimacy which is helpful when you have such a grand room!

Ashleigh and Jerry’s romantic pink wedding at The Phoenician is part rose-filled dreaminess and part edgy fun; the couple chose pink roses as the stars of their lush floral designs but also had a few tricks up their sleeve!

A stellar vendor team helped Ashleigh create her “Great Gatsby meets a Midsummer Night’s Dream” wedding and you’ll enjoy it *almost* as much as their guests did.

Romantic Pink Wedding Ceremony Details: The ceremony was on The Phoenician’s Orchid Lawn- this grassy spot offers couples an intimate outdoor ceremony space with towering palm trees; the couple made it a gorgeous romantic pink wedding ceremony with large bouquets lining the aisle and pink and white petals lightly covering the grass.

Romantic Pink Wedding Reception Details: Ashleigh and Jerry chose soft romantic colors for the ceremony, cocktails and dinner; guests dined under a clear top tent located on the spacious lawn strung with bistro lights and glowing chandeliers. Impressive centerpieces of pink and white flowers along with curly willow and iron candelabras were placed atop pink linens.

Romantic Pink Wedding Reception Details: The indoor reception was a bit edgier with fuchsia and hot pink lighting and a cake that took center stage.

One of Ashleigh’s favorite memories involved a “Too Sexy” dance performed with the help of two bridesmaids’ husbands in honor of her grandmother’s 76th birthday. We think her Nana loved every minute of it!

The day after the wedding, the couple hosted a pool party that included lunch along with personalized shirts, hats and koozies for their guests; the post-wedding brunch idea has turned into a full-on party the next day complete with personalized details and games for all ages. We are glad couples are taking the opportunity to extend the celebration in this way.Phoenix Bride and Groom_Romantic Pink Wedding_Ben and Kelly Photography_The Phoenician -17a

Desirae and John’s wedding was a beautiful celebration that stayed true to John’s Greek heritage but they took things one step further by flying a band in from Greece for the reception. Because of this, they opted for a larger dance floor- you can imagine the party that ensued!

Desirae is one of those brides with GREAT expressions- the joy she’s feeling just bursts out of her!

The couple had a traditional Greek wedding with all the usual traditions included. Desirae explains the traditions: …the Betrothal (the blessing of rings), The Crowning, the Blessing, Drinking from the Common Cup and the Ceremonial Walk, and finally the Proclamation of Marriage.
During the crowing, crowns are placed on both the Bride and Groom and linked together by a white ribbon. They are blessed by the priest and the Koumbaro (Best Man) and exchange the crowns three times back and forth to seal the union. My favorite part is that these crowns will be sealed and kept somewhere in the house, never to be opened or seen.

The couple thoughtfully explained each of the traditions in the program for the non-Greek guests who attended.

The Estrella Theater at The Phoenician was decked out in chandeliers, mixed chair styles, a “king’s” table, dramatic centerpieces, abundant draping and tons of uplighting. Perfect for the high-energy dancing that took place throughout the evening!
