Some Like it Classic did an amazing job with the event design and lucky for us Karlee K Photography was there to capture every little detail and all the memories that were made on Brett and Raquel's special day.
From the moment she daintily spritzed her Givenchy perfume on her neck, Raquel experienced unforgettable moments that made their wedding day unforgettable.Photography: Karlee K Photography // Event Designer: Some Like it Classic // Floral Designer: LUX Florist // Jewelry: BHLDN // Bridesmaid Dresses: Brideside // Equipment Rentals: Classic Party Rentals // DJ: Got You Covered Entertainment // Cake Designer: La Dolce Pesca // Linens and Coverings: La Tavola Linens // Linens: Quest Drape // Musicians: The Encore Quartet // Jewelry: Windy City Diamonds LLC // Reception Venue: Sanctuary on Camelback //
It was a sunny, Arizona day — far from their homes in Chicago.
They chose Arizona because it was a special place for them as a couple...
Would it have been easier to plan a wedding close to home, and meet with vendors whenever they wanted to? You bet!
But they stuck to their desert dream and made it happen, in a big, big way.
Whitney and the ladies of the Some Like it Classic did an amazing job with the design!
And these gorgeous florals by LUX Florist?! Consider me smitten...
Modern touches can be seen throughout featuring a chic, midnight blue and coral palette!
And this view over Paradise Valley? Such an amazing locale full of natural beauty!
Not only was the aisle accented with floating candles in glass vases, but it was also sprinkled with rose petals in shades of coral and orange.
Lots of special moments happened during their ceremony!
Like how Brett kissed her after his vows in the middle of the ceremony, laughing, "It's my wedding, I can do what I want!"
And these floral arrangements? They were actually taller than the guests, and everyone could smell their sweet perfume the moment they stepped onto the grass.
Before they knew it, they were pronounced man and wife!
After they exchanged a kiss, the bride and groom turned to face their loved ones, and the flowing skirt of her white gown came to life as they walked hand-in-hand down the aisle...
And then in an instant the party was underway! La Dolce Pesca did a lovely job with this fun monogram cake!
And I can't go without mentioning my love for these driftwood accents....
The party was full of pizzazz and so much sparkly goodness!
It's a look that captures a modern, elegant vibe! And I just love the funky chandeliers!
Oh, and what's not to love about these coral napkins?
So much attention to detail was paid to the place settings!
And I just love this mix of blooms with the perfectly placed succulents throughout...
Manzanita branches were used to create little trees and votive candles shimmered throughout...
Meanwhile accents like were crystals and chiavari chairs added an upscale, sophisticated feel...
There was candlelight galore which illuminated the amazing colors...
And can we just talk about two? You can just feel the love!
Seriously dying over the way that this vibrant orange shade pairs with slate gray...
But the best part of all would definitely have to be the sweet moments captured like this one!
As you can see, the reception was truly dreamy with a mix of soft candlelight and a romantic ambiance — complete with grilled cheese sandwiches at the end of the night as a late snack. YES, please!
From the sleek chandeliers and mercury candles at the reception, to the dripping crystals and white dance floor, it was a small slice of heaven and I don't know about you, but I'm feeling absolutely inspired!
Congrats to the happy couple! Now excuse me, but I have some seriously pinning to take care of. Care to join me?
