Nicole & Billy ~ Sanctuary Resort & Spa Wedding ~ Paradise Valley, Arizona

Bride Nicole had the most wonderful vision for her wedding, contemporary vintage with a touch of her island homeland of Guam.  Wow, with that in mind,  the colorscapes were planned to include charcoal with a vintage lilac hue and modern acrylic accents for this late May 2014 wedding.  The reception decor in the ballroom (with the best views in town might we add) looked liked it was out of a modern fairytale with acrylic ghost chairs, plum and lilac flowers and charcoal linen.  The dance floor ceiling and lounge sparkled with contemporary diamond chandeliers and crystal accents.  Despite the 106 degree heat and high winds during the ceremony, Nicole did not break a sweat as she met the very excited and smiling groom Billy at the altar.  Billy proved to be the life of his party, dancing with anyone and everyone,  making for a very fun celebration.  The guests were also surprised with an interactive performance by traditional Pacific Island dancers who got the dance party started for the evening.  One thing for sure, when Billy danced with his bride, there was nothing but a halo of undying love surrounding them.  Images by Katina Patriquin
