Ashley & Zach ~ Montelucia Resort ~ Paradise Valley, Arizona

June 2012 bride Ashley had one vision for her wedding, romance.   A hot June day turned into a pleasant June evening as Ashley and groom Zach exchanged vows under their serene chuppah at the Montelucia Resort.  Ashley, a natural beauty, completed her vintage and romantic look with soft flowers such as hydrangea, peonies and roses.  The charcoal bridesmaids dresses were wonderful backdrops for their lush white bouquets. Natural brown wood tones accented with silver candlesticks were the perfect accents for her reception tables.  Keeping with the white theme, Ashley added a soft white candy bar for her guests to enjoy.  Zach’s guests, many of whom traveled from Israel, felt right at home with their celebration in the early summer desert.  Ashley and Zach just beamed with love as they strolled the resort’s lush grounds for some private time after they exchanged vows, proving that love conquers all, even the desert heat!  Images by Jen Bowen Photography
