A few details of the day from Victoria, Laura & Brian’s ever-so-talented wedding coordinator …

The adorable couple wed at The Royal Palms Resort & Spa on a gorgeous Arizona fall afternoon. Before the ceremony, Laura surprised guests with root beer, green apple, and orange cream Jones Sodas adorned with photos of Laura and Brian’s long history together.

The ceremony décor was soft and elegant with brilliant colors of red, orange and brown. Rose petals covered the aisle spelling out the letter “S” with a pop of color. At the end of the ceremony, guests tossed rose petals to Laura and Brian’s “rosy future” and for the cocktail hour, the vintage photo theme continued … the guests seating was indicated when they picked up chocolate brown boxes. On top of the custom label was the guest’s name. When they opened the box, their table number was nestled in a bed of orange rose petals and the lid of the box showed photos of the bride & groom’s dating history … the prom, a trip to Paris, their first date…

The gorgeous cake design was based on Laura’s Ramona Keveza wedding gown and the brooch that sparkled on the top tier was taken from a formal dress Laura wore on a date with Brian.

The reception exuded warmth and matched the elegant feel of the Royal Palm’s Salon with different shades of taupe, brown and gold.

Guests were treated to a delicious plated meal, and then the party started! Laura changed her hair and the music picked up. Guests were able to change out of their high heels and into flip flops as the dancing began because “happy feet are dancing feet!” A photo booth provided fun favors for all of the guests and more vintage photos were displayed throughout the reception.

As the night went on, guests indulged themselves in a chocolate decadence bar for some tasty treats to take with them. Laura and Brian started their rosy future while surrounded by family, friends and spectacular memories.
