Kaila and Kyle (seriously, such a gorgeous couple) said “I DO” at the stunning Sassi in North Scottsdale among dear friends and family. We’re calling their wedding a Glam DIY Wedding because while they decided not to hire a wedding planner, they still had gorgeous professional looking details; highlights include luscious coral peonies, beautifully hand-painted wooden signs and pops of shimmering gold.
A Glam DIY Wedding Ceremony: The desert venue doesn’t disappoint when it comes to intimate moments, picturesque views, delicious food and beautiful photo ops…the centerpiece of Kaila and Kyle’s ceremony was an arch complete with lush floral and hanging crystals that framed the couples nuptials perfectly.
Kaila recalls: The day of our wedding was supposed to have consistent rain from morning until evening. While we were getting ready there was thunder and severe rain. When we finally arrived at the venue, my bridal party and I realized we forgot my wedding dress at the hotel. Omg! However, we all just kept rolling with the punches. By the time the wedding started the sun actually came out…we had the most beautiful outdoor ceremony and I even remember hummingbirds flying around.
Our favorite part of the wedding was seeing each other for the first time. We had debated if we wanted to do a first look and I’m so glad we didn’t. There was something about being traditional that made it very special when I walked down the isle. We were both so happy to see one another.
A Glam DIY Wedding Reception: We had a clear vision of how we wanted everything to look and feel. This made it easier for us to focus our time on the details. By spending time on details and special touches our personalities were able to shine through.
Photos from Kaila and Kyle’s parents’ houses were placed on the mantle in the private Sassi room which added a very comforting vibe; regarding dinner, Kaila tells us, “Our menu was three courses and consisted of an antipasto salad, hand rolled cavatelli pasta with short rib, and seasonal white fish and filet mignon. It was important for us to have amazing food and Sassi definitely delivered. We had many of our guest comment on how delicious the food was!”
A sparkler send-off was fitting for this glam DIY wedding!
Congratulations Kaila and Kyle and thank you for sharing your Glam DIY Wedding with us!
