Andaz Resort Scottsdale Wedding - Monica & Nolan

Monica and Nolan tied the knot at the modern Andaz Scottsdale Resort and Bungalows. The details were to die for from the custom invite suite created by Celebrations in Paper, to Monica's incredible sparkle pumps, and stunning glam clutch. Monica and Nolan are so sweet together. Their love for one another is so natural and enduring. We had so much fun during their bride and groom portrait session, and Monica has the most incredible smile! We walked the property after their private first look and spent time capturing their connection with one another. It was such a joy to witness. Outstanding Occasions outdid themselves on their wedding design! The two tied the knot under a chuppah covered in greenery and blush florals with a stunning backdrop of Camelback Mountain behind them. The ceremony was so lovely, there was not a dry eye in sight while the two shared their vows and promises to one another. The guests then moved onto the Palo Verde Pool Deck where they enjoyed cocktail hour, and then into an al fresco dining experience on the Palo Verde Lawn welcomed with music by The Instant Classics. No detail was left untouched for dinner. From the magical lanterns, to the detailed linens, and custom floral arrangements curated by The Flower Studio. It was absolutely magical.
