Wedding at the Arizona Biltmore.
Brittany and Anthony had a breathtaking wedding at the Arizona Biltmore; it was the kind of wedding where our entire team stopped and stared in awe at every teeny, tiny, minuscule detail. It was a gold and glitter filled day and stunningly beautiful!
Brittany and Anthony met on a blind date (he had never been on a blind date, she had ONLY been on blind dates). They were quickly attracted to each other for their spirit and hearts, which was made apparent many times throughout the day. After falling head over heels in love with each other, and a lavish vineyard proposal in Napa, the couple quickly set off on their wedding planning. It was a wedding where every detail was planned beautifully.
The Ceremony was held on the main lawn at the Arizona Biltmore and was a sight to be seen. After their 18 person wedding party walked down the aisle, Brittany, and her father, walked down the aisle towards the man of her dreams. There was a large cross at the end of the alter, and they couple was married by their close friend and pastor. Brittany’s sister and brother performed a song during the ceremony while the couple took communion and signed a Ketubah. After that, they sealed it with a kiss and walked down the aisle as husband and wife as they were showered with rose petals by their guests.
After the ceremony we walked the grounds around the Biltmore for some gorgeous portraits of these two, which was not difficult at all! Brittany is a former Miss Arizona and models quite a bit, so she’s very comfortable in front of the camera and both her and Anthony were naturals.
At the reception it was wonderful watching the guests as they entered the room for the first time; Everyone had their phones out, taking pictures and oohing and aahing over the exquisitely decorated ballroom. The couple hired a painter to capture their wedding in a different way – so he got a beautiful painting of their ceremony and then painted a beautiful piece of them dancing in their reception room – just another magnificent way to capture the day! Brittany’s parents gave emotional speeches, and gave all of us either a lump in our throat or tears on our cheeks – you could feel how much love was permeating that room! After dinner and dances, more fun followed; Anthony and his former fraternity brothers ‘serenaded’ Brittany with a song, and Brittany’s parents asked the ASU choir to come in and surprise the couple with a beautiful rendition of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’. Brittany and Anthony participated in the Hora, and had all their guests up on the dance floor to and clapping along. The entire day was magical – for a couple who truly deserved a perfect wedding.
