Chris & Allison’s Black Tie Wedding at the Omni Montelucia is the definition of modern romance. From Allison’s delicate off the shoulder gown to the bountiful white rose centerpieces, not a detail was overlooked in their gorgeous wedding thanks to Laurie with Two Hearts and a Planner!
My day together began with Allison, her mother and bridesmaids. So much love filled the room; you could just feel the excitement in the air! While Allison was getting dolled up, I took a few detail shots of the dress, rings and shoes of course! Allison rocked my favorite Badgley Mischka shoes, the Kiara! .. I could go on and on about these beauties! The bridesmaids and Allison’s mother relaxed in their personalized silk robes, so of course we had to take a few shots before slipping Allison into her bridal gown!
One of my favorite moments from Chris & Allison’s special day was their first look. As we were walking over to their first look location, I even started to get butterflies myself! It is these special, quiet moments where I always whisper to myself – damn, I love my job! We fluffed Allison’s train and got her in perfect position and snapped a quick photo of her before she saw Chris for the first time. You can just see the love/excitement/nervousness on her face!
After the first look, we boogied straight into bridal party pictures. This group made it easy for me, I mean look at them! They are so stinkin good looking! Allison’s bridesmaids wore gorgeous navy cap sleeved gowns with the most beautiful jeweled adornments, while her maid of honor wore the same gown in a silver color. Talk about glam! These ladies deserve to be in a magazine! I also have to give it up to the groomsmen, who looked especially dapper themselves in their classic navy tuxedos.
For the ceremony, Fred’s Signature Events really outdid themselves! The aisle began with a gorgeous arrangement of hydrangeas, roses and eucalyptus leaves featured in a grand gold vase. The aisle was lined with rose petals that accompanied Moroccan styled white lanterns. Fred’s also designed a custom phalaenopsis orchid flower curtain adorned with candles in floating bulbs for their altar. All of this beauty combined with Camelback Mountain as the backdrop and a gorgeous couple made for a picture perfect ceremony!
After the ceremony we snuck away to capture a few sunset photos among the fountains of the Omni Montelucia. By this time, the nerves were gone and Allison and Chris were ready to par-tay! While the newlyweds made their way to cocktail hour, I was able to head to the reception to get some detail shots. Be prepared to fall in love! Candlelight everywhere, romantic white florals, soft gold linens and one killer cake – swooooning over here!
Allison & Chris’ reception was one that I will always remember. The speeches that their families shared, epic dance moves and the memory of the groomsmen attempting their best GQ shots while smoking a cigar are forever engraved in my memory. I truly loved being able to celebrate and capture their special day. Now it’s time to enjoy the married life! XO – Casey
A huge thank you to the wonderful team of vendors who came together to make this day possible!
