Jenny and Erik were together for almost ten years before they tied the knot at the stunning Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona. They wanted their wedding to be "distinctly them", Jenny says. Filled with whimsy, magic, and comic books. The two planned their destination wedding from New York with the help of Revel Wedding Company who absolutely nailed every single detail without a doubt. Her design was magical. From her custom invite, to her alfresco dining experience, and everything in between. Everything was custom and represented them as a couple perfectly! Jenny described her wedding as a "cotton candy dream" and I couldn't agree more. Every floral piece curated from Lux Wedding Florist was an art piece. I just could not get enough of the details on their special day. I had so many special moments that I loved on their wedding day, but my top two were probably Jenny's first look with her Dad, he is an avid car collector and they shared their first look in front of a 1930 Cadillac LeSalle parade car. My second favorite moment of the day was during the ceremony when Erik and Jenny shared their vows with one another. They were so special and made me tear up! Jenny's Vows: "I have had the privilege of writing you love letters for nearly a third of my life. On one hand, I have an overabundance of words. And on the other, all those words fail me on this day. You. The life we have built together is my single best decision, my proudest accomplishment. The love you radiate has lit my soul on fire every single day and I could never adequately thank you for who you are and what you have meant to me. I would get in the rocketship every single time to be with you forever.. When Johnny Cash was asked for his definition of paradise, he said about June "This morning, with her, having coffee." And that is percisely how I feel about you. We could spend the rest of our days together in our tiny house and that would be a life beautifully lived, truly more than anyone deserves." Erik's Vows: "I believe in three things. Magic, love, and you. I spent many years reaching for all these things. I found the first early on in comic books, films, and drawings. I found the second in family. All the love I thought I;d need. and then I found you! And everything changed. I found myself in an adventure. An adventure I wanted and needed. An adventure that is you. I know this will sound silly and cliche but you are my life, my love, my friend, and there's no one I'd rather be with than you. I love you Jenny. Please marry me!"

“I am just a girl who absolutely loves art, makeup, and making women feel beautiful. I am obsessed with telling the story of your wedding through your beauty styling. I want to know your dressmaker, florist, color palette, style, fashion icons, and personality.
I understand that your aesthetic and style is personal and that you are choosing me to represent your best "you" for your event. I am skin and eyes focused always, but I do love a bold lip when the moment is right. My favorite styles to execute are boho glow or classic glam.
I am thankful to collaborate and work with the talented group of artists within my company, as well as amazing vendors throughout AZ and beyond.”
