{Real Weddings} Melissa & Wes's Simply Sweet Scottsdale Wedding

We have such a beautiful wedding to share with you today, submitted by Jill Lauren Photography.  We have had the chance to feature her work in the past, and are thrilled to do so yet again! You might have seen a styled shoot she was involved with, seen here, that we still are talking about today. Before you go check that out, please take in this wedding.  

Jill Lauren shared a bit about Melissa & Wes's wedding with us:
At the incredible Scottsdale Plaza Resort - Melissa and Wes' wedding was spectacular. The reception details were incredible, flowers amazing, and the ceremony beautiful.
This recent Real Arizona Wedding (March 16, 2013) has everything. Including two wedding cakes! Gluten free for her and chocolate for him. Who says you can't have it all?

I would agree that the word "spectacular" is perfect for this wedding.  I love that they had the two cakes for dietary reasons, but it just looks cool too! 

Please enjoy Melissa & Wes's Simply Sweet Scottsdale Wedding, captured beautifully by Jill Lauren Photography:

Melissa & Wes make such a beautiful couple.  I love Melissa's stunning gown, it's just perfect for an outdoor spring wedding in Arizona.  The blind folded "first glance" is so cute! I love Wes's reaction seeing his bride for the first time.  Such an intimate moment that Jill Lauren Photography captured so perfectly.  

I am swooning over this final image of the two, embracing under neath the umbrella! What a great, artistic shot!  And, I always love a sparkler send off! (Speaking of sparklers...stay tuned to some sparkling news!

Our many thanks to Jill Lauren Photography for sending to us your fabulous work! Please be sure to visit the styled shoot she shot seen here.

  1. That blindfold is so perfect! Great idea!!

  2. Hi there! I'm Maria Fossler with The Point of Elegance, and Melissa hired me to write the names on the escort "tags" with the keys. Not sure how to be able to get in as one of the "vendors" for this wedding, but would DEEPLY appreciate the mention! (This is now the third blog I've seen my work on, and since I'm "behind the scenes and not part of the wedding day itself, I often get overlooked! :( ). My website is www.thepointofelegance.com.
    Thanks so much for your time!

    p.s. You can verify with Jill, as I'm sure she recognizes my work!
