Behind the Wedding: Carefree Resort and Conference Center

One of our October #YJBrides let us bring one of our assistants, and talented photographer, Amy Marka Photography to tag along and get some detail and behind the scenes shots of a #YJwedding. 

This beautiful Arizona day and wedding was held at the Carefree Resort and Conference Center

At every wedding we always check in with our bride and grooms first thing when we arrive on site. After, we start our day-of timeline and begin setting the ceremony and reception to fit each brides needs to encompass their vision. 

For this wedding, we pre-set most of the reception space the night before after we coordinated the rehearsal. This way we were able to focus on the little details like the sparkler exit signs, table top decor, then move on quickly to helping the bride and bridal party. 

The florist for the event, Petals & Lucy, brought in the brides purple and raspberry colors perfectly and included white pumpkins as a special touch for this fall bride. We loved the garland on the back of the ceremony chairs and gorgeous ceremony arch also provided by the florist. All of the ceremony florals were reused in the reception space and moved during the cocktail hour. This is an easy way to save a little on floral and add extra color to any tabletop! We always suggest this to our YJ brides and grooms.

Their photographers, Royal Escape Productions, were so great to work with! This was our second time working with them and they let us capture our images and take extra for the bride and groom! We are excited to share their images once we receive them as well. 

To the newlyweds, Kerry & Brian, congratulations! We are so thankful and humbled to play a part in your wedding day. Everything looked beautiful, we wish you many years of love and happiness. Cheers to you both!
