Tegan and Connor met in sunny Arizona, so naturally it would be the destination for their gorgeous wedding! Nearly all of their friends and family stayed at the chic Scott Resort and Spa for an unforgettable weekend of cocktail parties, dinners, cabana pool parties, and brunches! They wanted to make sure their wedding weekend was an event and so much fun for their guests!
Tegan and Connor tied the knot with a romantic formal wedding in the historic St Francis Xavier Catholic Church complete with a grand piano, string quartet and a Vintage 1963 Bel Aire chauffeured car!
The guests then arrived at El Chorro for the rest of the evenings festivities. The cocktail hour was held in the private garden on the historic property of El Chorro at sunset which truly set the tone. Styled with mid-century modern luxury furniture and elements of whimsy such as The Beer & Bubbly Burro that circulated with fresh drinks!
The stunning candlelit dinner under the stars framed by Camelback Mountain at El Chorro's Casa Paloma Lawn was magical. Draped in fresh florals and accompanied by live music, guests enjoyed an evening of fine dining in a setting that was beyond vintage Hollywood.
To end the evening we moved into the after party hosted in the 1930's adobe bungalow on El Chorro's property. A twelve piece big band and guests packed the black and white checkered dance floor all evening. The hedge wall backdrop to the band adorned with a custom pink neon sign that read "celebrate" was the perfect touch to this fun design. Contemporary styling takes on the late night with acrylic bars, large palms, ceiling suspended geometric candle globes with greenery, and custom lounge seating. Guests were also wow'd with a vintage Volkswagen photobooth, a gelato cart, and a Poutine Bar, a Canadian nostalgia item, which added surprises and additional kitch cuisine to the evening.
The day was simply perfect and it was such an honor to celebrate with Tegan and Connor!
