October 10th, 2015 was a big wedding day for BTS Event Management and one that would definitely not disappoint us. We had much to do and many dreams to make come true. One of the weddings that we had this day was at The Phoenician on the Orchid Lawn. It was one of a weeks worth of events for the bride and groom as they practiced their Polish traditions of several parties prior to and after the wedding day. Our main stage though, was on Saturday. The day that they walked down the aisle.
One of the biggest compliments for a wedding planner is to have a relative or close friend of bride, who you have previously worked with, reach out to you and want you to do their wedding as well. These are usually the best brides to work with because they have seen us in action and have a sense of trust with us, right from the beginning. That is exactly what happened with this couple, Michaela and Matt.
If there is anyone that loves to support a local company here in Phoenix, it is definitely us! Recently, we got the absolute pleasure of meeting with Black Tie Market to talk about their products. Not only did we become instantly obsessed but, we can’t stop raving about them. Black Tie Market is owned and operated by two very lovely ladies, Amber and Nina. When we say lovely ladies, we really mean lovely ladies – they were the sweetest and most humble people we have met in a long time. So, let’s get into their product!
Erica and David are a couple who we had worked with for over a whole year helping to plan their wedding. They came to us with three things that were important to them: food, drinks and music. As far as wedding design and decor, they didn’t have too much in mind at all. Erica, the bride, was sweet and soft spoken. She didn’t have many requests throughout our time working together and was always as laid back as a person could possibly be. The groom, David, really took the lead on the wedding planning details. He created a pinterest board, along with spreadsheets for the guest list and meal choices, and he was always extremely organized and responsive. The two of them really compliment each other well and bring out the best in each other and it certainly was evident on their wedding day!
Temperatures are cooling off, pumpkin spice latte is back at Starbucks, and in other parts of the country, outside of Arizona, leaves will soon start to change colors and Fall to the ground in preparation for winter. One of the most popular seasons, Fall, is here! In honor of this season change, we thought it was rather fitting to showcase, one of our favorite Fall-themed weddings.
Recently, Alex and I had the privilege of beating this super hot Phoenix heat, and driving up north to Sedona to check out one of the most beautiful wedding venues, L’auberge de Sedona. We have a few weddings taking place there in 2016 so we wanted to make sure we were nice and familiar with the area. We took a few pictures and measurements of some of the outdoor areas so we could get our wedding planning and wedding designs in order.
As wedding planners, meeting with a new bride is always exciting. We never know exactly what our potential new brides are going to be like, or what they will have in mind for their wedding. When we met with Hope, the gorgeous bride in these photos, we couldn’t have been more excited to start working with her. We felt an instant connection and were sure we were going to be the perfect match for her wedding:) Hope is an extremely organized bride but needed some help in the design and details department. We put together the perfect wedding planning package for her and her fiancé Caleb and began working on her wedding right away. Hope was already about half way through her wedding planning before we met with her so we started off by reviewing all of the great work she already had in place. Hope was planning her big wedding day at the Scottsdale Resort, located in Scottsdale, Arizona. She planned on having a traditional Greek ceremony at the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, also located in Scottsdale, Arizona. This church is absolutely breathtaking. We have been lucky enough to work here before for Desirae and John’s Greek wedding (Be sure to check out those photos as well).
Our 2015 wedding season is right around the corner and we are so thrilled to have a busy, busy fall. Make sure you stay tuned for more details about each dream come true, fairy tale event. In the meantime, here is a quick flashback at the great summer that BTS Event Management has had thus far!
Recently, one of the newest venues in Phoenix, Chateau Luxe, invited us to design a styled shoot for some of their marketing material. We were honored and super excited to get started on this fun project. We were able to choose which location in the venue we wanted to design and had creative reign on just about everything.
