Sometimes when a couple is so incredibly special and so full of love, it becomes hard to put into words how amazing it was planning their wedding day. Which is exactly what happened with Merlyn and Blake’s Sanctuary Resort & Spa on Camelback Mountain wedding.
In helping Merlyn and Blake plan their wedding day we soon realized that this day was not only about them becoming husband and wife, it was also about their family and friends from all over the world who would be attending. It was important to them that each guest would feel special, this meant that the little details and small moments would have a special impact for everyone. With the stunning views of Camelback Mountain in the background, and a touch of glitter everywhere you turned, their wedding was the definition of glitz in the desert.
COLOR PALETTE: Blush, Ivory, Champagne & Gold
INSPIRATION: Glitz & Glamour with Desert Touches
Gold glitter arrows, hanging crystals and white rose petals from Table Tops, Etc. welcomed guests as they walked to Paradise Views for ceremony, which took place overlooking Camelback Mountain. Glass lanterns stood watch at the base of the aisle, while a wood table filled with candle votives and white florals served as the altar backdrop.
After ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the Views Terrace, where their signature drink was champagne with gold sugar glitter that rimmed the glass, and personalized napkins honoring Merlyn and Blake were distributed. Table Tops, Etc. adorned each table with blush and cream floral centerpieces set in a cylinder with crushed mirrored glass. A desert touch was added when guests were greeted by succulent favors with custom escort card flags and heart “gracias” tags created by Vee Creative.
The reception was nothing short glitz, glamour and romance. Sparkling chandeliers hung from the ceiling of The Views ballroom and each table was laced with New York Nude gold linens and blush napkins from La Tavola. Gold glitter table numbers, mercury glass trumpet vases and assorted floral vessels from Table Tops, Etc. made each table more and more decadent. Classic Party Rentals set gold beaded glass chargers at each guests place setting to finalize this glamours wedding.
To close the night, Classic Cakes and Confections set a three tiered cake on top of a rose petal filled arylic stand. A custom candy bar was filled with Merlyn and Blake’s favorite blush, gold and silver sweet treats and included a personalized to-go bag designed by Vee Creative where Wildflower Linen provided a Curly Willow linen which accented the candy bar perfectly.
