Laurie & Christopher ~ Royal Palms Resort Wedding ~ Phoenix, Arizona

We always knew that somewhere in Arizona, we would find that rare gem–a June bride!  Laurie and Christopher proved without a doubt that June weddings in Arizona are both wonderful and stunning.  Their June 2013 celebration at the deeply romantic and historic Royal Palms Resort was a sophisticated event for a very contemporary couple.  Laurie’s vision for her wedding was for it to be elegant, modern and breathtaking.  And so it was starting with the beautiful ivory and butter tones at the ceremony, perfect for a summer wedding just about anywhere.  The magnificent ballroom, meticulously set for a black tie event, was filled with gorgeous white dendrobium and phaleonopsis orchids shipped in that morning from Hawaii.  The bride and her attendants, beautifully coiffed, were simply stunning in their couture fashion.  Not even the 109 degree temperature at ceremony time could stop this party, just see for yourself!  Images by Captured Moments-Rita Sherman Photography — See Video
