Washington DC couple, Robyn and Jesse wanted their guests to fully experience the Arizona desert throughout their Scottsdale destination celebration planned by Imoni Events. The couple opted for an outdoor ceremony and reception at Four Seasons Scottsdale so guests could enjoy the warm evening air. Invitations by Celebrations in Paper featured a watercolor illustration of Pinnacle Peak, the desert backdrop at the venue which was decked out in stunning white flowers and greenery by The Wildflower. Robyn and Jesse even surprised their guests with a firework before heading into the ballroom after dinner—an amazing kick off to a killer dance party. Lucky for us, the couple enlisted the eye of Cameron Clark Photography to capture all their special details—and stunning scenery—in these gorgeous images.
What made the wedding special and unique?
From Cameron Clark and Sarrah from Imoni events: There were a lot of specials touches mixed in throughout Robyn and Jesse’s day. Since they live in Washington DC they wanted their guests to fully experience the Arizona desert. They opted for an outdoor ceremony and reception so guests could enjoy the warm evening air. For their invitations we incorporated a watercolor painting of Pinnacle Peak, the desert backdrop at Four Seasons. They also had a surprise firework show for all of their guests at the end of dinner before heading into the ballroom for dancing. The band played a Michael Jackson set where we handed out white sequined MJ gloves— the bride and groom love Michael Jackson!
What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?
Robyn carried a beaded purse that was her grandmother’s. Jesse surprised Robyn with a beautiful necklace. When the guests arrived to the ceremony, we had Jonah Littlesunday, a Navajo flautist, playing to incorporate the Native American heritage. At their head table the guests had monogrammed napkins at each place setting with the couples new monogram, and when the wedding ended the guests were presented with cake truffles shipped from Milk Bar, the bride and groom’s favorite bakery.
What was the most memorable part of the day?
The surprise fireworks were a huge hit with all the guests and the couple really enjoyed that moment.
