Elegant Tented Wedding
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.

We really wanted guests to feel like they were experiencing a different event as they enjoyed each part of the day. The ceremony was more rustic with a palate wall decorated with framed photos of the couple and marquee letters. A beautiful Aspen arch adorned with floral was placed at the alter. Guests then moved out to the lawn for cocktail hour. Lounge areas were created with wooden benches and coffee tables. Cocktail tables were draped in floral and stripe linens with bistro lights strung overhead.
The reception tent's taffeta drapes remained drawn until we were ready to sit guests for dinner. We kept with a simple and elegant color palate of whites, golds and grays. We mixed Chelsea Natural linens and Pearl Drop Snow linens from La Tavola Fine Linens for the round guest tables and a blush lace linen for the head table. We mixed gold and gray chivari chairs and hung 3 smaller chandeliers and one grand one from the clear top tent. Paper flowers and vintage frames added a textured back drop for the dessert table. Romantic floral arrangements from Sarah's Garden were mixed with peonies, garden roses, white hydrangeas, eucalyptus and daisies in honor of Kendall's mom.
After dinner we staged the bride and groom on a white dance floor which was draped off and the bridesmaids opened the drapes when the music started. White ottomans, a contemporary communal cocktail table and white sequin linens made for an elegant dance party. The evening was spectacular.
