When the owner of Historic Barrel + Bottle asked me to help design her wedding I was thrilled. Carole is an amazing business woman who is creative and driven and has created an amazing brand with Historic Brewing. Having worked with her and her family on all three of their tasting rooms, I have gotten to know her well and understand her fun and eclectic style, so of course there were all kinds of fun touches and surprises through out her day.
Caitlin & Chris wanted a casual & intimate wedding surrounded by family and a few close friends. The ceremony was on the mountain and their reception was held in a quiet courtyard. Dinner was Latin fusion served family style. The entire day was captured beautifully by Mitch & Denise Photography.
I was honored to be a part of Flagstaff Shelter Services annual fundraising event Feast For Flagstaff. A variety of local restaurants provide a sampling of their best dishes as well as local beer tastings. This year was special as the amazing documentary photographer Amy S. Martin did a photo expo of many of the individuals who benefit from Flagstaff Shelter Services.
When Davinci Real Estate had a great idea to turn an old photography studio into a co working space, I was so excited and wanted to be a part of the project. The 100 year old building had gone through a few transformations over the years, including the local newspaper building and was John Running's photography studio for many years. The client wanted a clean, modern and open space that was comfortable, professional and be creative fun place to work.
Anastacia and John wanted an elegant and sophisticated destination wedding in Sedona. Anastacia works in PR and marketing for Marimekko and had much of her day planned but needed a little help pulling it all together from New York. Anastacia and John wanted to incorporate their love of sailing, passion for food and dancing into their day. John had to have an emergency appendectomy the night before they were supposed to fly to Phoenix but was a trooper and still managed to pull off a special surprise. He and his groomsmen sabered bottles of Veuve Clicquot after the ceremony. It was an amazing evening.
Kendall and Nick grew up in Flagstaff so Forest Highlands was the perfect venue for their elegant Fall wedding. They were married in the Meadows Club House at Forest Highlands Golf Club, enjoyed cocktail hour on the lawn and ate and danced in a beautiful white tent. After the reception concluded, guests moved back into the Meadows Clubhouse for more dancing and a late night snack bar. The entire day was captured by the amazingly talented Cameron + Kelly Studios.
I was so excited when the owners of Historic Brewing asked me to help design their new tasting room in downtown Flagstaff. They wanted an urban and industrial feel for the space.
When my friends Maraka and Paul wanted me to help design and execute their intimate wedding and their reception I was honored. The canyon is a magical place and it is where Maraka and Paul fell in love. They invited fifty of their closet friends and family to join them for a beautiful ceremony at Shoshone Point on the South rim of the Grand Canyon. They would host a reception two days later for 175 of their family in friends in the courtyard at 1899 Bar & Grill.
Vanessa and Matt were married in an intimate winter ceremony in December and now wanted to celebrate their union with 150 of closest friends and family. Their backyard in their North Scottsdale home was the perfect venue. It was black tie affair with a Mexican theme. Guests were greeted by a beer burro in a sombrero and champagne while mariachis were playing in the back ground.
Vanessa and Matt both love the outdoors and wanted to join their families together in an intimate winter wedding in the pines of Northern Arizona. Vanessa is an amazing photographer, Bliss Boutique Photography and Matt is part of the KNIX morning show, Ben and Matt In the Morning, so they needed a little help planning and styling their winter affair. Snow was a must and luckily we delivered.
Ally & Whitney were the sweetest couple. They met while working at a summer camp and they wanted the Jewish ceremony and reception to have a similar vibe. The Forest Highlands sports park was the perfect venue.
Whitney & Richard met and fell in love at the Arizona Snowbowl so it only seemed fitting that they get married there. The lodge is very rustic and Whitney really wanted the space to be more sophisticated with accents of white and gold. We draped the entire lodge in white organza and added white and gold lanterns over the dance floor.
Marissa and NIck wanted a vintage and rustic wedding in Flagstaff. Foxboro Ranch was the perfect venue with it's beautiful views and rustic lodge. Marissa had most of her day planned and really just needed our team to pull it all together. It was an honor to celebrate this sweet couples day with them!
Jessica and Aaron were excited to have an intimate destination wedding in Sedona. The Agave of Sedona was the perfect venue with it's amazing views of the Red Rocks and intimate dining room.
