Janet and David’s backyard wedding

What I loved the most about Janet and David’s backyard wedding was the sheer amount of heart and planning and dedication that went into making the day possible. The backyard was simply stunning with oodles of details and color everywhere. From handmade origami cranes to paper flowers and an onsite artist painting a representation of the wedding ceremony live, the atmosphere and overall style was vibrant and personal. David’s sister and Janet’s sister officiated the wedding ceremony and Janet’s grandson was an adorable ring bearer. Janet and David and all of their guests lit Chinese flying sky lanterns towards the end of the night.  It was a gorgeous sight watching them float high into the evening sky. Both a mariachi band and a bagpiper added to the festive atmosphere where the bride and groom danced throughout the night! Congratulations Janet and David!

Thanks to wedding planner Zoe Hancock who made the day run so smoothly.

Petria and Frank’s Arrowhead Country Club wedding- Glendale, Arizona

Petria and Frank created a laid back, fun and intimate wedding to celebrate with their friends and family. They were married under a giant canopy of trees at Arrowhead Country Club in Glendale. It was such a sweet moment as Petria’s grandfather walked her down the aisle Frank he had the worlds biggest smile on his face, a smile that stayed with him the entire day. I know that Frank and Petria will have a lot of laughter and many good times in their future together!

Florin and Brenda featured in the Wedding Chronicle!


I am super excited to share that Brenda and Florin’s University of Phoenix wedding is now featured in the Wedding Chronicle’s Spring 2012 issue! On newsstands now. Brenda and Florin were married at the home of the Arizona Cardinals last May. It was such a unique experience to have the entire 60,000+ seating venue all to ourselves. I got to the stadium early that day and I remember just how calm and quiet it was. This has got to be on the list of wedding venues for any die hard football fan. Go get your free copy today!

Brenda and Florin’s University of Phoenix wedding- Phoenix, Arizona

Congratulations to Florin and Brenda who were married at the University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals. Brenda and Florin are Cardinals football fans and season ticket holders so the location was perfect for them. I wouldn’t have thought about the stadium as a wedding venue but it was a lot of fun and a really cool backdrop for photos. Guests got the VIP treatment on the club level with views of the stadium. The ceremony site had a two tiered platform lit from below that allowed everyone to have a good view of the vows and cloaked the otherwise dark room in a warm glow.

Venue: University of Phoenix Stadium
Flowers: Wolz Florist
Cake: European Bakery

Florin and Brenda see each other for the first time before the ceremony.
