Molly and Matt came to us from New York City looking for help to plan their Scottsdale wedding. With family ties in the area and many visits here, the couple holds Scottsdale as a special place in their hearts. One thing they love about Arizona is the golf scene. They spent many hours on the golf course, including a round on their wedding weekend. So when Molly and Matt found out the Waste Management Phoenix Open fell on the same weekend as their big day, they could only laugh at the irony. Thankfully, nothing could overshadow their celebration!

It was a gorgeous February day for their outdoor wedding at Mountain Shadows. The ceremony took place under a beautifully dressed, gold framed chuppah with vibrant flowers arranged by the incredibly creative Array Design. The mix of pinks, greens, and peach danced against the desert landscape and green of the golf course. We could not help but smile seeing those happy colors. Upon arrival at the ceremony, a customized welcome sign built by The Details Duo and designed to match the stationary by Freja Creative greeted guests. Sweetwater Strings signaled the start of the processional with an instrumental version of “No One” by Alicia Keys. In her simple yet stunning lace and satin gown, Molly walked with both of her parents down the aisle to meet her groom. 

After a traditional, but personal Jewish ceremony, cocktail hour was hosted outside on Camelback Overlook. While guests watched the sun set on classy lounge furniture by Prim Rentals, they enjoyed either Molly’s Paloma or Matt’s Mule from the bar and passed hors d’oeuvres. Their seating chart of luggage tags hung from a unique display by The Details Duo and also served as favors. Dinner and dancing transitioned to the ballroom where a mix of long and round tables covered in neutral linens from La Tavola complimented the bright and whimsical florals by Array Design. Gold flatware from Bright Event Rentals matched the gold rimmed chargers and framed table numbers designed by Freja Creative. Personalized menus with name tags made each guest feel accounted for while indiscreetly serving as a meal indicator for dinner service in varying colors. From the moment they walked in, Lucky Devils Band pumped up the crowd for a fun evening. 

And a fun evening it was! From the Hora and Hava Nagila to the Bride and Groom’s favorite jams, the dance floor was full and energized. After the band played their last song, the party continued with a late night snack of breakfast sandwiches and local Press Coffee cold brew, Matt’s favorite, in the Community Lounge at Mountain Shadows

Molly & Matt, we loved planning your wedding and getting to know you and your sweet families! Wishing you all the love and happiness!

Thank you Mary Claire Photography and Something New Media for capturing their day so perfectly, as always!   

XO, Kayla & the SLIC team
