From The Bride...Weddings have always been magic to me. Since I can remember I have loved weddings and dreamed of mine, even beginning my own wedding binder when I was 13 years old. As you can imagine, when I got engaged I was elated to turn my dreams into a reality! Luckily, I had been following wedding blogs, photographers and of course had my wedding binder to help me begin the actual planning process.

When I closed my eyes and tried to envision what I would like my wedding to be like, I envisioned Northern California, in early summer, outdoors surrounded by massive trees strung with twinkling lights. The dinner the tables would be dripping in foliage and flowers, candles lighting the tables—a very romantic elegance. After dinner there would be dancing all night under the stars. This did not seem unreachable to me but for Richard and I it was most important to both of us to be surrounded by all our family and friends. So, both being from Arizona it made the most sense to have our wedding locally. We knew The Silverleaf Club was the perfect venue for us. They views and outdoor charm are stunning! Nothing else from my dream changed, except the tree became a cactus!

Without a doubt, I knew I had to have Erich McVey photograph our wedding. I had been following him for years and knew he was the perfect person to capture our special day. Next, I knew in order to get the wedding I had always envisioned I needed a top-notch wedding planning professional. There is no way I could have pulled off our dream wedding without Samantha from Imoni Events. She worked tirelessly (though making it seem effortless) and put up with all my demands and very specific vision. So that when April 11 finally came around, I could not have been happier with how it all came together.

Everything from our ornate and custom calligraphy invitations by The Paper Place to the show stopping floral design by The Flower Studio was more than I could have ever asked for. I was truly living my fairy tale, not to mention my Prince could not have been dreamier. It was magical! We had the most beautiful dinner with our closest friends and family, filled with laughter and tears. Followed by a night of endless fun—from the fireworks to crowd surfing to dancing until we wore out our shoes.
