Ashlee and Drew were married on Saturday, January 5, 2013 at the Royal Palms Resort & Spa in Phoenix, AZ. Ashlee carried a beautiful hand tied bouquet of white cymbidium orchids, pale pink garden roses, white lisianthus and touches of Dusty Miller foliage. The stems were wrapped with Gardenia Luxé ribbon and featured french braid detailing with Woad Blue satin ribbon. The stem wrap was accented with pearls and Swarovski crystal seam, as well as with her great-grandmother’s brooch.
The bridesmaids each carried a smaller hand tied bouquet of White Dove, pale pink Sweet Eskimo, Amnesia, Black Beauty, and Cool Water roses, blue hydrangea, and accents of mini burgundy cymbidium orchids and gray/blue brunia berries. The stems were wrapped with a blush colored French satin ribbon with three Swarovski crystals.
This beautiful couple was married under a romantic Chuppah in front of the fireplace in the Palmera Salon. The Chuppah was designed with a lush covering of foliage and flowers such as White Dove, pale pink Sweet Eskimo, champagne Quicksand, and Cool Water roses, peach Juliet garden roses, burgundy snapdragons, antique green, blue and white hydrangea, burgundy Black Beauty dendrobium orchids, pale peach stock, pale pink wax flower, seeded eucalyptus, curly willow and dragon wood. The white carpet runner featured a rich outline of ivory and pale pink rose petals.

The Place Card Table featured various sized gold candle sticks with ivory pillar candles and mercury glass votive candles. Also adorning the table, were antique rose glass vases designed with flowers and scattered rose petals.

The first half of the tables were decorated with an antique gold candelabra with a stunning arrangement of antique green and blue hydrangea, Cool Water, White Dove, Amnesia, and pale pink Sweet Eskimo roses, pale peach Juliet garden roses, burgundy cymbidium orchids, and white snapdragons. The arrangements were accented with trailing foliage such as Dusty Miller, Italian ruscus, and naked seeded eucalyptus for a natural, organic style. Adorning each of the arms of the candelabra was a crystal bobesh with crystal strands strung from arm to arm and ivory pillar candle inside of the hurricane glass.
