Heather & Jeremy ~ Sanctuary Resort ~ Paradise Valley, Arizona

On the go Washington, D.C. bride Heather chose the panoramic backdrop of the Sanctuary Resort on Camelback Mountain for her October 2012 destination wedding. Modern and elegant, Heather and her groom Jeremy were all about red, white and bling. With a crisp white designscape, Heather touted her dramatic style by adding classic red roses, black accents and of course, bling. Swarovski studded vases showcased elegant pave florals while chandeliers and cascading red roses accented the dance floor. Beautiful, yet subtle mirrors and white leather furniture, completed the lux look creating a lounge and deejay station. The Sanctuary’s floor to ceiling windows were the perfect framework for the room display, securing oohs and ahhs from both the wedding guests and curious onlookers when the curtains were opened. Groom Jeremy’s one request was to keep the party hopping and he led the way, swirling, dipping and swooping up his perfect bride. All of the guests, coming from destinations other than Arizona, marveled at the view, raved about the food and said that it was the best wedding that they had ever attended and they were glad that it just happened to be Heather’s and Jeremy’s.  Images by Ruby Rideout
