Jenny and Erik are the type of couple who steals everyone’s hearts at the moment they meet. They radiate passion and kindness, and understand the importance of making every minute count. We had the pleasure of planning with both the Bride and Groom throughout the entire process—Erik was even involved in the floral design and we love when grooms are a part of planning the details! They excitedly chose Arizona to be their wedding destination, even though it was far from their home in New York. Jenny has always loved Arizona and knew it was the place she wanted to tie the knot with Erik.
The couple transformed their wedding space to be everything they had ever dreamed about. Her explanation for each decision with florals, diagrams, and overall design was that she wanted to curate a “moment” in every nook of the Royal Palms—and she did! Every eye was on the couple as they met at the end of the aisle; Erik’s tennis shoes showed his easy going personality, and Jenny’s detailed dress applique and black earrings made a statement. The ceremony, down to the personalized vows, was beautifully crafted to be timeless and romantic.
With the same theme, but with a funkier and more eccentric twist, the cocktail hour screamed “Jenny and Erik!” Custom backdrops, signature cocktails, and an overwhelmingly large charcuterie display was the talk of the hour.
Guests then were invited to dinner in the Orange Grove. The newlyweds shared their first dance under a floral cloud, and there was not a dry eye in the room during the speeches. But the night was far from over! It continued inside with dancing, an espresso station, macaron station, and neon sign photo op to make every “moment,” just as Jenny wanted. She even surprised Erik with a cake covered in comic book designs, which he absolutely swooned over. They made a quick dress change into a J. Lo-inspired dress and a Batman tee and custom suit jacket, grabbed a coffee, and danced the night away.
The night, full of unforgettable moments, ended with yet another picture-perfect moment: a sparkler exit. We were so honored to be a part of Jenny and Erik’s day, and to witness a love like that of a movie: romantic, quirky, and perfect.

“I am just a girl who absolutely loves art, makeup, and making women feel beautiful. I am obsessed with telling the story of your wedding through your beauty styling. I want to know your dressmaker, florist, color palette, style, fashion icons, and personality.
I understand that your aesthetic and style is personal and that you are choosing me to represent your best "you" for your event. I am skin and eyes focused always, but I do love a bold lip when the moment is right. My favorite styles to execute are boho glow or classic glam.
I am thankful to collaborate and work with the talented group of artists within my company, as well as amazing vendors throughout AZ and beyond.”
