Saying Goodbye to Sassi- Scottsdale, Arizona

Scottsdale wedding photographer

The warm and wonderful wedding venue & restaurant Sassi, in north Scottsdale, is closing its doors for good. After 14 years in business the property has been sold and will become an assisted living facility of all things. The wonderful staff at Sassi was always good to me over the years. I have many fond memories and ate some incredible Italian food there. I was luck enough to photograph so many happy couples as they walked through those iconic doors and down the staircase to get married. As I say goodbye I wanted to share a few of my favorite photographs from Sassi…. Arrivederci.

Mid Century Modern wedding at Mountain Shadows Resort

Mountain Shadows Resort wedding Scottsdale, Arizona

My first feeling when I walked into the brand new Mountain Shadows Resort at the base of Camelback Mountain was of inspiration. The views, the colors (hello teal!), the architecture and overall vibe of the resort is right up my alley. After a private tour of the property with Greg Wirth, catering sales manager, I left knowing I wanted to create photos that were fresh with a mid century modern aesthetic. Think Mad Men without looking costumed. Next step was to take that initial inspiration and turn it into a reality. I can’t stress enough how much I was honored & thrilled & relieved when the super fabulous Jennifer Star of J.Starr Stylized Weddings said “yes!” to becoming my collaborator for this styled photo shoot. Jennifer and I focused our energies on creating beautiful settings in intimate spaces inside the restaurant Hearth 61 as well as a couple little nooks around the resort. It takes a village to put something together like this and I can’t thank everyone enough for participating with their time and energy- see the full list of participating wedding vendors at the bottom of this post. Thank you also to Zeina Reinboldt, catering sales manager, with Mountain Shadows with all her help! Thank you! Thank you and enjoy!

Tiffany and Joe’s Troon North Golf Club wedding- Scottsdale, Arizona

Troon North Golf Club wedding pictures

Tiffany and Joes’s Troon North Golf Club destination wedding embraced bold colors and the natural beauty of the Sonoran desert in fall. Their Scottsdale wedding was a gorgeous day surrounded by the nicest people. After the wedding ceremony while Tiffany, Joe and I were taking pictures on the golf course Joe caught a glimpse of a bobcat run across the course. A minute later that same bobcat triumphantly returned with a bunny for dinner. I have been photographing weddings in Arizona for quite some time now and have encountered wildlife but never mid-hunt! After our little nature show we enjoyed a stunning desert sunset before the party got started. Instead of a wedding cake Tiffany and Joe opted for mini pies and together the cut a caramel apple pie! Congratulations Tiffany and Joe!

Dennis and Amanda’s Sassi Scottsdale wedding

Sassi Scottsdale wedding pictures

Amanda was accompanied by her two lovely young daughters as she walked down the aisle towards Dennis on a beautiful day on April. It was a blue sky afternoon for this intimate wedding ceremony and celebration. The outdoor wedding was followed by dinner and drinks in the cozy dining room at Sassi. One thing Amanda wanted captured was pictures of her and Dennis after dark once the sunset behind Pinnacle Peak and all the twinkle lights came on in the Sassi courtyard. I always love how the outdoor space at Sassi has so much character at night! Congratulations Amanda and Dennis!

Brittany and Nick’s Camelback Golf Club wedding

Camelback Golf Club wedding

How to describe Brittany and Nick’s wedding- words that immediately come to mind are, comfortable, classic, elegant and above all warmhearted. I loved everything about this wedding, the gorgeous flowers, striking desert backdrops and of course the way Nick and Brittany look at each other. They were seriously the cutest sitting up at the alter during the wedding ceremony! Our portrait session was epic with views of the valley, blue skies and of course just the right amount of wind to give Brittany’s veil a life of its own! Brittany and Nick are so lucky to have found their perfect match and I wish them a lifetime of joy together.

Always a pleasure working with the talented ladies at Thee Wedding Warehouse.
