Katie & Ian’s Wedding at JW Marriott Desert Ridge | Outstanding Weddings

by Rachel at Outstanding Occasions on

From the minute I met with Katie and her mother Barb, I knew that Katie & Ian’s wedding was going to be extra special. It was an event we had to plan within four months and one we wouldn’t have a set date for until well into the process, as Ian was still attending Boot Camp. Katie and Barb pictured this special day as a classy, elegant and traditional affair. They envisioned the day in classic black and white with deep red accents. After brainstorming with them we came up with the inspiration for their wedding day. Here is their inspiration:

The day started with the bride and groom getting ready at JW Marriott Desert Ridge, which would act as center stage for their reception later in the day. We also had the amazing Melissa Jill on hand to capture the day.
