Choose the Right Venue
From the Bride: We chose our venue, Eagle Mountain Golf Club, for the views. Our ceremony overlooked the East Valley, and two mesquite trees framed the spot where we said our "I dos". Gina Klein, the event coordinator at Eagle Mountain, was amazing and made sure all the little details came together perfectly. She even brought us hors d'oeuvres to munch on and and our signature cocktails to sip on while we took photos during cocktail hour.
Keeping Things In Perspective
In the almost-two years Danny and I were engaged, we went to a lot of fabulous weddings. After each wedding, we reflected on what we enjoyed most and came up with a list of priorities. Danny wanted us to write our own vows and have our friends and family dancing all night. I wanted beautiful flowers and cakes on every table.
My advice to brides-to-be is to keep perspective on what the wedding is about - marrying your best friend! Sometimes, this was challenging for me because I am such a detail-oriented person... Luckily, Danny and my maid of honor, Taylor, were amazing at reminding me of what really mattered.
Cake & Cocktails
We both wanted a March wedding (we think March is the nicest time of year in Arizona) and an open bar with fun his-and-hers signature cocktails. Danny's signature cocktail was an Irish Mule (Jameson, ginger beer and lime) and my signature cocktail was a French 75 (gin, champagne, lemon juice, and simple syrup, with a sprig of lavender).
