Lush and Elegant Cream Montelucia Wedding | Outstanding Weddings

by Caitlin Caval on

Love was certainly in the spring air at Christal and Ryan’s breathtaking exchange of vows. This beautiful couple said “I Do” in an outdoor ceremony at the exquisite Omni Resort & Spa at Montelucia‘s Camelback Villa-Lawn. This adorable couple settled on a classy, neutral palette of ivory, paired with lots of lush greenery for their Montelucia wedding. Petal Pusher created a beautiful cream rose bouquet for the bride. The rich green eucalyptus leaves weaved throughout the bouquet added that perfect pop of color against Christal’s lace gown.

Guests were awestruck as they approached the beautiful ceremony. The wooden arch was dripping in white florals, and it was definitely the perfect accent against the desert mountains and tall palm trees. Guests were seated in dark wood cross-back chairs from Classic Party Rentals, with elegant white bow-tied cushions. The aisle was accented with floating candles and pillar candles, inside of tall glass vases and adorned with white rose petals. After the ceremony, guests found their table assignments on a classically-elegant escort card display with escort cards by Harmony Art & Design.

The reception, held on the Camelback Villa Lawn, was filled with a mixture of long wooden tables and neutral linen-draped tables, topped with abundant cream florals, eucalyptus greens, and a multitude of candles to create a soft, romantic vibe. Simplistic and beautiful menus by Harmony Art & Design tied with twine were placed on top of the chic dark hardwood tables. The intimate sweetheart table was placed underneath the very wooden arch that Christal and Ryan exchanged their vows under just a few hours before. Guests enjoyed the beautiful weather while watching the special moments of the evening unfold,  including heartfelt toasts and the first dance.

As the night progressed and the sun set, dainty portofino lights became illuminated, creating the perfect romantic ambiance. It was pure magic to watch these newlyweds surrounded by their loving family and friends. Joshua Aull Photography captured all of the night’s special moments, especially Christal and Ryan indulging in their delicious cake and scrumptious Challah bread! Our Outstanding Occasions team could not have been more pleased with how the night turned out, and we could not have done it without all of the amazing wedding professionals!

Geometric Romantic Wedding Styled Shoot | Outstanding Weddings

by Rachel at Outstanding Occasions on

Every couple’s wedding day is considered the “Best Day Ever” in their book, and is something we strive to ensure comes true for each and every one of our clients. With that in mind, we pour our hearts in to every detail we help them select and in turn becomes a day we will remember forever as well. When we were asked by Amy & Jordan Photography to create a styled shoot for their workshop, we jumped at the chance to create a “Best Day Ever” inspired design, but this time we were able to showcase our personal style, aesthetic and play with fun colors, textures and unique details we haven’t been able to use in a wedding…yet.

When we design for a client, it’s our goal to make it a true reflection of the couple, whether their design style is rustic glam, traditional elegance or a modern soiree, we want every guest to walk away thinking it was a true representation of the bride and groom. For the outstanding occasions team, our style usually encompasses modern and clean lines with romantic details, and lots of color; and as we pulled together our design concept for this shoot it featured just that. Here are a few things that inspired our design:

OCT 1 Geometric Romantic Wedding Styled Shoot | Outstanding Weddings

The ceremony combined bright hints of color and sharp hexagonal patterns to create a modern yet romantic setting.  Petal Pusher draped multicolored fresh tulips in hexagonal gold baskets perched on a white board to create an art installation like backdrop. The white covered chairs added a gentle touch with the blush floral ribbons, while the overflowing floral piece at the front of the aisle stole the show.

The geometric inspiration was carried through to the one-of-a-kind escort card display created by idieh design. Multicolored hexagons in shades of pink and gold adorned the wall, each holding hand painted escort cards. The staple of this display was the Best Day Ever wall adhesive, which sat in the center of the design. The thought behind this display was two fold, one for it to assist guests with finding their seats, and two to act as a photo backdrop for later in the evening.

The modern romantic aesthetic was truly was captured in the glamorous reception setting. The scene began with guava geometric patterned linens from Wildflower Linen, paired with a touch of sparkle from the crystal napkin rings holding alternating cotton candy and fuchsia napkins and finished with soft white chair backs tied with a romantic blush rose belt. The place settings were another opportunity for the glamour to shine through with hints of gold in each piece from Cre8ive Event Rentals. The glasses, champagne flutes, silverware and dishes added just enough shimmer to the table. Each individual guest experienced a personal touch including the hand painted menu and hexagonal thank-you tag from idieh design, to the hand brushed macaroon place cards from Ruze Cake House. The rich colored and romantic centerpieces from Petal Pusher completed the look which were set atop gold hexagonal cutout vases and finished with small gold accents.

As the Best Day Ever came to an end, Ruze Cake House introduced their intricate dessert feature. The “simple” white cake was finished with sugar hexagons donning shades of pink and gilded in gold. A Best Day Ever gold signature topped off a celebration no one would soon forget. This truly was the Best Day Ever!

Wedding Websites | Outstanding Advice

by Rachel at Outstanding Occasions on

We love to recommend different ways for our couples to really make their wedding experience their own and to make the interaction with their guests go beyond just the wedding day. Wedding websites are the perfect way for couples to tell their story as well as keep guests up to date with all the “need to know” wedding info. Luckily, we live in a time when templates are readily available for couples to plug in their information, rather than having to put in the time to design an entire website.

Here are just a few of our favorite site creators:

Riley & Grey

Riley & Grey is perfect for the upscale wedding that wants to bring class and elegance to their website. The pre-made design templates allow couples to edit their site and and save changes before paying for use. The perks of this site is that each couple gets their own domain name, multiple platform access and limited-edition designs. You can also organize your guest list and collect RSVPs right on the site.

Sitting In A Tree

For the customizable couple, Sitting In a Tree is a great option that allows you to choose a base design then edit to the couple’s preference. Their designs reflect the style of modern day brides with vintage, preppy and minimalist themes that easily reflect each individual couple through editable content and individual images and coloring. These designs also work on all devices including mobile, tablet and desktop, so no matter where your guests are, your site is sure to look exactly how you intended it to.

Appy Couple

For the app savvy couple, Appy Couple is the way to go. Once you choose from the 500 plus design options within Appy Couple, your site will be available both on the web and as your very own wedding app, which couldn’t be more convenient for those destination weddings or traveling guests. With two collections and one time pricing to create your individual site, there’s something for everyone with Appy Couple. If your guests are technologically challenged, there is still a desktop version of the site that launches with the app, but for those who prefer one touch access to the site, the app is waiting.

Using a wedding website will centralize communication between a couple and their guests and let the couple share more of themselves with those they love! We recommend a wedding website to all of our clients, no matter how much or how little you choose to share, it still acts as a great planning tool for all of your weddings guests and allows them a sneak peek in to the events to come. Happy designing!
