A Royal Palms Wedding with Susan & Taylor

Mar 1, 2016

I still feel like this destination wedding to Phoenix was a dream. As soon as I stepped off the plane I was so relieved to finally feel sun on my face and happy to leave rainy New Jersey behind for a few days. I am going to post a little more about my trip to Scottsdale in a separate post, but for now, here is a little preview of Susan & Taylor’s S T U N N I N G wedding at The Royal Palms Resort & Spa. As soon as you step onto the grounds, the smell of gardenias fills the air. Susan embraced this by wearing gardenia perfume and gardenias in her hair and bouquet. Eucalyptus greens and corals set the tone for a really fun yet chic day, and I could not get enough of these bouquets by Tabletops Etc! Seriously, I couldn’t stop photographing them. With Susan’s gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown, secret garden ceremony, Parris Chic calligraphy, orange groves, and Taylor looking dapper as ever with his cruiser, I never wanted it to end. Hope you enjoy this preview and CONGRATS again to Susan (Suzy Q) and Taylor on your wedding weekend!
