DC Ranch summer bliss!

Alana & Ryan were not the least bit upset by the 110 degree temperatures on their wedding day at the beautiful DC Ranch Country Club. They were so in love, I don’t think they even noticed!! They did however, notice the wild bobcat running around the golf course when we golf-carted the entire wedding party up to the higher tees for some amazing views. They couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Arizona sky. As usual it was such a joy working with Ray the DJ… and Sharon Bishop with DC Ranch. Congratulations Ally and Ryan!!

Independence Day wedding at Montelucia

So the heat is finally here! After a very mild Spring, we finally had a wedding in the 100s. In fact the temperature was more like 110 on Sharon and Jorge’s 4th of July wedding at the beautiful Montelucia Resort in Scottsdale. That didn’t seem to spoil the mood for this super-happy couple and their families. Many had come from Belgium, Mexico and other parts of the world. Table Tops florists adorned the ceremony site with gorgeous florals and one of my favorites, Phil Waring officiated over the wedding nuptuials. Coco, the cutest four-legged ring bearer ever had everyone smiling. And what an end to the evening as all the guests walked outside into the front courtyard for an amazing fireworks show. Congratulations Sharon and Jorge!

Amy & Ric’s beautiful Sanctuary wedding

Amy & Ric were married high above the city on a beautiful May evening at the Sanctuary Resort. The mountains looked gorgeous as the backdrop for this very special wedding. The ceremony area was decorated beautifully by one of my favorites – Suzanne at Floral Europa. So much color and style! Amy and Ric looked stunning amongst all the desert beauty. I thought Ric looked a little like George Clooney. He and Amy were so affectionate. One of the highlights of the ceremony was a surprise serenade by all the guests, singing the couples favorite song as they walked down the isle. The singing was led by one of my favorite classical guitarists, Rich Mancini. And the Sanctuary Resort recently opened a new wedding reception room called the Praying Monk and it has such magnificent views! It too looked stunning. It was clear all the guests (most came from Chicago) had a wonderful time.

Mary & Drew’s wedding – Wrigley Mansion

What a delightful couple Mary and Drew are. Mary was a bridesmaid at Kristina & Mike’s wedding last October at Troon North and she decided after seeing Kristina’s photos that One Fine Day was the photographer for her. We were honored and flattered. And, it was so great to see Kristina and Mike again! It was also great being at Wrigley Mansion again – hadn’t been there in over a year. Kirsten, their new wedding coordinator was a joy. And it is always a pleasure working with Jason and Kerry at Muscleman DJs.
