Ranna and Eric are the type of people you meet and immediately feel like they are your best friends. Planning their wedding weekend was lovely and so special. The Royal Palms was the perfect venue to capture their love story at.
As the weeks leading up to the wedding continued to fly by, the weather forecast predicted heavy rains all day. We started to make plans A, B, and C, hoping that we would not need them. However, while the forecast proved to be true, Ranna and Eric handled the situation with grace—they remembered the importance of marriage over all else. We redesigned the wedding with our amazing vendor team only 48 hours before their day, and made their outside Arizona wedding dream come true inside.
The morning began with the girls getting ready in their onsite suite, laughing and dancing the whole morning, while the guys toasted champagne and dressed for the romantic day ahead.
Meanwhile, Lux Florist was designing a gorgeous chuppah and the custom-built Sofreh table, overseen by the Bride’s mother, was coming together—items that symbolized health, love, and good fortune were incorporated. They intermixed their Persian and Jewish customs to create an intimate and tailor-made ceremony for the couple and their families. The Bride's silky dress and the Groom's sleek tux perfectly complemented each other. At the end of the ceremony, Eric broke the glass and the party began!
Guests moved outside under the then-cloudless skies while the indoor space was flipped to the reception. The space quickly transformed into a party space, leaving the chuppah as a frame for the sweetheart table!
The energy was high and the guests were ready to celebrate through the end of the night. From great speeches to great food to a lot of dancing, the night was nonstop fun! Guests were able to take breaks to either sit in the lounge furniture on the patio and inside, or enjoy the silly photo booth with Ranna and Eric. Needless to say, this was a night the newlyweds and their guests will never forget!
