Recently, Show Stoppers was asked to participate in a photo shoot for Arizona Wedding Sites and Services Magazine. Lovely photography was provided by Erica Velasco Photography. Our friend Amina, from Some Like It Classic Weddings and Events, provided the coordination. We hope you enjoy seeing some of the other wonderful images that did not appear in the magazine.
We were thrilled when we learned that the shoot would be at the fabulous Ritz Carlton in Phoenix. The Ritz Carlton staff could not have been more appreciative and accommodating. This shoot led to great things to come with our friends at the Ritz Carlton.
Ken designed a very romantic bouquet using pale ivory, blush and pastel pinks. Notice how perfectly Ken’s selection of ribbon complements the dress.
With the use of ribbon and a small bloom, we turned an antique coin into an unusual boutonniere.
The ceremony was staged under the cabana on the pool deck of the hotel.
Multiple layers of sheer taupe draping was used to achieve a romantic tented effect. We added one of our chandeliers with floral details.
Floral garnishes and silvery blush tassels were added to the tie backs.
Of course, we had to create one of our signature rose petal carpets. Pastel pinks and ivory petals began the carpet. Deeper pinks were gradually added toward the end of the carpet.
The gold leaf cake was adorned with freshly cut plum branches imported from Sedona.
Now we turn our attentions to the reception room. We love the lavish look of the tables with multiple vases of flowers, chocolate desert menus, twinkling candles and sparkling glassware.
Deb Beggs from Classic Party Rentals provided many of the exquisite rentals.
We loved the chair covers and linens Amina selected from Wildflower Linens. We added tassels and a single garden rose.
Amina designed a lovely box to house the menu card that was designed by Kimberly McDowell of The Event Essentials.
