Mike and Adrienne were married this past weekend at the Montelucia Resort in Paradise Valley, AZ. If your looking for a large wedding venue and a fun place for all of your out of town guests to stay- Montelucia will not disappoint.
The wedding day began with Adrienne getting ready at home, with all 11 of her bridesmaids. The main living area of the house was turned into their very own private beauty salon.
A quick photo of all the girls before getting dressed and leaving for the wedding venue.
Adrienne’s mother helped her into her wedding gown.
The future mother in law assisted the Bride with the final details of wedding jewelry. The pearl necklace was Adrienne’s very first gift from Mike, and also served as her “something old”.
We took refuge from the heat and cooled off just inside the Spa. The staircase in Joya Spa offered a perfect photo opportunity.
Because the Bride and Groom choose to do a “First Look” we were able to get all the Bridal Party and Family photos completed before the ceremony. Which means… after the ceremony all these lovely faces (including the Bride and Groom) got to enjoy cocktail hour with the guests!
The Bride and Groom stayed in Camelback Suite, which also has a private backyard. Which leads me to the introduction of Daryl.
Daryl put the backyard to good use. After the ceremony was over, we went back to the room to grab a few shots with this very important family member.
The reception was in in the Alhambra Ballroom, and each table had a stunning centerpiece from Lux Florist.
And then the party started…
