Fate Brought These Two Together – And They Celebrated With Fireworks!

They attended the same high school and college, but never met until post graduation, when both were in Chicago. With the groom’s brother playing matchmaker, it all came together and before they knew it, they were saying “I do” back where it all could have started, in Tucson, Arizona. And back at their hometown, they celebrated in a BIG way – with Black Sheep Filmworks capturing the chic style, the sweet kisses and even the fireworks! See it all right this way!

From Black Sheep FilmworksOh, Annie and Sean…so swoon-worthy! From that incredible Monique Lhuillier wedding gown, to those red-soled Christian Louboutin’s for BOTH bride and groom, to suspended floral rings to FIREWORKS, Annie and Sean had one of the most chock full of “eye candy” weddings ever.

Annie and Sean both grew up in Tucson, attended Sabino High School, and the University of Arizona… and NEVER met each other! They both moved to Chicago after graduating from the U of A and it was Sean’s brother that introduced them. Sean stated that he was “Going to marry that girl” after their first date, so obviously, fate finally stepped in and these two gorgeous Tucson lovebirds finally found each other!

Love letters that Annie and Sean had written to each other were opened on the day, and read aloud, privately. This was incorporated into their highlight film, as per Annie’s request, and it really connects you to their love story. Not only are they beautiful, with great style, but they are “Oh-SO” in love. Their family and friends (close to 250 of them!) came from all across the globe to take part in this soirée.

Special touches filled Annie and Sean’s wedding. From red soled Christian Louboutin’s for both bride and groom, to the placement of a Mexican lasso during the ceremony, to a wishing tree instead of a guest book, no detail was overlooked. Sean even surprised Annie with fireworks during the reception. This was truly a gorgeous, spicy, “beaming smile” wedding… Bravo, Annie and Sean!!!

From the Bride… Alex is a man of tradition, which is one of the many things I love about him. I’m also known to have a more classic style. We knew far before we got engaged that when we did get married, it would be in a church. In addition to getting married in a church, we wanted a more formal, traditional wedding. To achieve the timeless vibe that we wanted, we chose the Arizona Biltmore Resort as our reception venue. We both share a love of mid-century modern architecture and the elegance of the classic Biltmore Block had us sold from day one. While the hotel rooms have been renovated, the history at this resort is rich, which we were both immediately drawn to!

As our vision for the day transformed, we decided to bring in gold chivari chairs, La Tavola’s velvet red tablecloths, and bronze accents such as goblets and taper candles. I wanted rich colors that would add even more glam to the hand painted gold ceiling of our ballroom, The Gold Room. We knew the room would look incredible on its own, with the large floor to ceiling windows, so we didn’t want to do too much and take away the natural beauty. We incorporated gold lanterns on the tables and had eucalyptus running down the head table, straight to the floor. Our wedding cake was incredibly intricate and included the Biltmore Block design which is still found all around the Resort today and tied together the whole design.

During the cocktail hour, we had a few minutes before all of the guests arrived into the ballroom. I wanted to take a sneak peek to see how it all looked. I knew that if I didn’t do this before everyone entered, I probably would never get that moment or memory back with my husband. Alex and I went in and were blown away with how well everything came together. The room looked immaculate! I was holding Alex’s hand and remember thinking, I’ve already had the best day of my life today, but I’m still so excited for the rest of the evening and celebrations. That feeling is reflective of more than just how I felt on our wedding day, but every day. I’ve already found my best friend, had the best dating experience, engagement, and memories with Alex, but I’m still so excited for the rest of our life… of what’s to come. The rest of the night was a dream, and we owe that to everyone who celebrated with us. The dance floor was packed all night and the energy in the room was definitely palpable.

We are blessed beyond measure by such wonderful family and friends. Our special day would not have been possible, or meant nearly as much without their love and support throughout the process. We also had the privilege of working with a great rector at Christ Church of the Ascension, Fr. Daniel and incredible vendors including Tami Spencer, AZ Biltmore, Erika Edholm, wedding coordinator, Kate Mellow, florist, photographer Rachel Solomon, Scottsdale Music Company’s Jeff King, and Sara Schultz on all of our paper goodies. We couldn’t have enjoyed our day without the steadfast commitment of such amazing professionals!
