Drenched in Red :: A Hip Wedding at The W Hotel, Scottsdale Arizona

I'd like to take the time to show off an event we were really proud of. This was for a celebrity couple that contacted us about planning their wedding and reception in Scottsdale, Arizona at the very hip W Hotel. We were honored to be chosen as their official wedding and event planners and to gather a team to design a lush, deep and memorable wedding for them.

This was a collaborative effort from some amazing vendors and I'd like to give special thanks to Christine Johnson of Christine Johnson Photography who captured these images. She also brought in the talented Keith Pitts for detail shots to make sure and capture everything from this extraordinary wedding.

Here are a few (okay...a lot) of images I'd like to share with you from P + J's wedding. (clients asked to remain anonymous)

Gorgeous bling'd out Christian Louboutin shoes.

Programs awaited on the chairs of the ceremony for the guests to details of the wedding.

This rose petal carpet drenched in thousands of colored petals in shades of red and purples awaited the brides steps.

Orchids, Roses, Hydrangeas and more surrounded the wedding aisle for decor.

Custom made ceremony backs for the chairs with a touch of rhinestones for added richness.

More amazingness...

Custom made aisle by the floral designers Table Tops, Etc.

The finished executed design for the wedding ceremony. Thousands of flowers and candles!!!

In lieu of gifts the couple requested guest donated to their foundation.

Love all the details!

The Invitation Lady customized a sparkled escort-card wall with Table Tops, Etc. which also doubled as a backdrop to the Self  Portrait Station.

Couple is now married!!! Cocktail hour has begun.

Signature cocktails swarmed the guests in style

The W Hotel executed outstanding food and here is a touch of what the hors d'oeuvres looked like....yummy!

Table numbers

Guest wedding reception placecards

Dramatic lush centerpiece. Oh so romantic!

Lots of candle light and ambiance.

The textured linens were fabulous and I loved all the texture from them by Wild Flower Linen.

Theses "fabric scarves" adorned all the guests Chameleon chairs for just that added "touch".

Napkin ring...these also escaped the site as guests "rings". SO FUN!

Edible orchids laid on the bread and butter plate for a bit more color.

Deep red draping encased the entire room.

Custom designed "Wishing Well" fountain was not only used as decor but also as the couples guestbook. Guests were invited to grab a river rock and write a note to the couple only to gentle toss it into the well as they wished them a lifetime of happiness.

Just when you thought the flowers were real...they were not...all edible and hand crafted by Tammie Coe.

The above pictures are just a few of the room shot that was the ceremony space. We had about an hour to transform and blow our guests away with a dance party!

To see the rendering that was created for this couple and how the wedding and reception actually turned out is mind boggling on how close we got it. If it wasn't for the cooperation, vision, patience, creativity and client trust this would not have come together so beautifully.

We highly recommend these unbelievably creative and trustworthy vendors below. If you would like any more insight of information about them please feel free to email info@lifedesignevents.com.
