I had so much fun shooting this styled shoot at Sanctuary Resort on Camelback Mountain. Sanctuary is a beautiful location for local and destination weddings in Arizona. Sanctuary Resort boasts breathtaking mountaintop views, an intimate glass enclosed ballroom, and beautifully landscaped grounds making it the perfect spot to showcase our couple, Ryan and Melody.
Planning and Design
Planning and design were provided by Taylor from Your Jubilee. At Your Jubilee, their primary goal is to make your vision come to life. They also make it fun. Your wedding day should be a day filled with joy and laughter, not stress and frustration.
The invitations, menu, and place cards were provided by Writing on the Walls. They are elegant and add consistency to the entire event.
Melody, our beautiful bride, wore a gown provided by Schaffer’s. It is a perfect combination of sleek yet romantic.
The delicate details on the back of the dress, paired with the veil, make for a classic feminine look.
Hair and makeup were styled by Lily Love. She chose a soft dewy style for her makeup that accentuates Melody’s features without overpowering the whole look.
For her hair, she chose a simple swept-back style with beautiful face-framing curls.
Our dapper groom, Ryan, wore a tux from Celebrity Tux and Tails. The tailored look and dark blues complement the classic style of the bridal gown perfectly.
No one can ever argue that Melody and Ryan don’t have the cutest wedding attendant ever. Well-behaved furry friends can make for amazing wedding memories and photos. Misbehaved ones can even make for some funny memories too.
The flowers were provided by Copper and Bloom. The clean look of white and greenery with just the slightest touch of blue adds a modern feel to the setting and reinforces the wedding palette. Also, nothing adds to the atmosphere like the smell of fresh flowers. From the bouquet and boutineers, to the tablescapes, to even the garland around their furry friend’s neck it all came together beautifully. Their work on the arch was especially magnificent.
Onto the sweets! Desserts were provided by Bear and the Honey Specialty Bakery. According to their website, they specialize in vegan, gluten-free, paleo, keto, and traditional lifestyles so everybelly can devour their treats with ease. Not to mention that they are delicious!
I really enjoyed this styled shoot and can’t wait to shoot at Sanctuary Resort on Camelback Mountain again. If you’re planning your wedding now and looking for a photographer that can utilize your space while capturing your memories, let’s chat. I’d love to help make your big day special.
