The wedding of Kathleen and Scott occurred on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013 at The Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix. From the moment we met Kathleen, we just knew this wedding would be remarkable! The Tiffany Blue and Poppy red color combination would make for an unforgettable and stunning event! We were thrilled to see this wedding come together.
Kathleen carried a lush hand tied bouquet of Piano red garden roses, Tinto red roses, and red anemones. The stems were wrapped with ivory Luxé ribbon and featured lace from her wedding gown, pearl accents, and her childhood rosary. Her bridesmaids each carried smaller hand tied bouquets of Tinto red roses and red anemones and were wrapped with red Luxé ribbon and Swarovski crystal accents. The Maid of Honor’s bouquet was also wrapped with red Luxé ribbon but featured a band of Tiffany Blue satin ribbon with Swarovski crystal accents. The Flower Girls each carried a small pomander of red spray roses with a Tiffany Blue satin ribbon handle. They each wore a crown of red spray roses with touches of mini succulents and foliage. The crowns were each tied on with satin Tiffany Blue ribbon trails.
The marriage ceremony took place in the tranquil Paradise Garden. The altar showcased a champagne finish ceremony arch with an abundant covering of curly willow branches with magnolia leaves, Italian ruscus and touches of antique blue hydrangea. Hanging from the center of the arch was a spectacular crystal chandelier. Flanking the arch and the entrance to the aisle were two Lucite pedestals, each featuring a wide glass urn with a lush, rounded arrangement of red roses, red Amaryllis, and antique blue hydrangea and seasonal foliage. The aisle was outlined with luscious red rose petals.
Once the ceremony concluded, the guests were directed to the Gold Room Patio for the cocktail hour. Each cocktail table featured a turquoise recycled glass vase designed with red anemones. Accentuating the Place Card Table, a five foot tall, champagne finish iron tree with a mix of clear lighthouse votives with candles and crystal strand accents and clear bell votives designed with red anemones, red Amaryllis and red roses were placed in the middle of the table.
The guests made their way into The Gold Room for the reception. The reception tables were decorated with dazzling centerpieces. The tables each featured either a 32” or 40” Garnier vase with crystal strand accents flowing down the sides and topped with a round, lavish arrangement of antique blue hydrangea, red roses, and red Amaryllis. Surrounding the bottom of the arrangements were a mix of halo vases and candle stems with ivory floating candles.
The Head Table featured an assorted mix of different height halo vases and candle stems with ivory floating candles down the center of the table. Throughout the glassware, arrangements of antique blue hydrangea, red roses and red Amaryllis that were designed in two various sized glass candy dish vases decorated the table. Directly behind the Head Table, the cake table featured a combination of tall halo vases and two different height candle stems with floating ivory candles.
We send our best wishes to Kathleen and Scott for a lifetime of happiness. We enjoyed working with Charlee Geisler at Signature Events. Thank you, Stuart Thurlkill, at Eyes 2 See for the marvelous images that were captured. (All photos Copyright © Eyes 2 See)
