Bianca and Elliot met in high school when Bianca moved back from Colorado. Elliot proposed to her on a trip to San Francisco and had everything planned out. They stayed at St Francia in Union Square where he proposed at sunset at Coit Tower. Here’s a look into their engagement session we did at Brophy Chapel (click here). The setting was a perfect prelude to their wedding day at the University Club of Phoenix that is directly across the street from the Phoenix Art Museum. They almost identical architecture outside where we did the bridal photos. Their colors of cranberry, ivory and burlap adorned the entire day. I loved Bianca’s touch of burlap and succulence on the tables. Plus, little favors of personal size succulence were picture perfect. The ceremony site was decorated with an arch filled with a large floral arrangement, childhood photos along the aisle, French bistro lights strung up above the area, and wooden small hearts for messages to drop inside a shadow box.
Bianca wore a modified sweetheart neckline gown with satin belting, amazing cathedral veil along with a pearl necklace and earrings. Not to forget the Badgley Mischka jeweled wedding shoes that were simply gorgeous. She got ready at the venue with her six bridesmaids and joined the guys at the Phoenix Art Museum for a first look bridal session. Elliot and his six groomsmen looked so cool in their dark charcoal gray suits.
What was your biggest challenge? It’s been pretty easy.
Do you have any savvy money saving tips to share? Do what you can DIY on your own.
What words of wisdom can you impart on future brides and grooms? We work together really well so whenever Elliot didn’t want something I had to be flexible.
Thanks to my amazing vendor team!
