“A Rosy Rendezvous”

Ceremony: Orchid Lawn

The aisle was lined with pink and cream rose petals and dotted by elegant floral arrangements, creating the perfect pathway to a beginning a lifetime of love together.

 

Reception: The Phoenician Grand Ballroom

During the reception, this couple transformed The Phoenician Grand Ballroom with elegant pipe and drape, accompanied by luminous uplighting. Each table donned a shimmery cream tablecloth, beautiful floral arrangements and the warm illumination from glowing candles.

“Dreaming of a White Wedding”

Ceremony: Orchid Lawn

An elaborate floral arbor stands at the front of the ceremony, inviting the couple to recite their vows with a gorgeous backdrop. Covered with white rose petals and embellished with intricate floral arrangements, the aisle creates a dreamy pathway, lined with rows of ornate gold chairs.

Between the ceremony and dinner, a reception hour is held on the East Lawn, donning a chic beverage station,  stylish seating area and passed hors d’oeuvres.

 

Reception: The Phoenician Grand Ballroom

A flashy white dance floor marks the center of the ballroom and is bordered by clear, plastic head tables and a live band, making the space party-ready. On the outskirts, individual tables are dressed in white tablecloths with elegant rose centerpieces and glowing candles.

“Graceful Garden Party”

Two elaborate floral arrangements stand tall at the front of the space, marking each end of the alter area with a rosy welcome for the couple and their guests. Along the aisle, rose petals are strewn throughout the walkway as gorgeous flora and fauna line the rows of chairs.

 

Reception: East Lawn and Patio

An elegant outdoor structure donning twinkle lights and illuminating chandeliers creates a glowing reception on the East Lawn. Tables are draped with pink tablecloths and decorated with enchanting floral arrangements and hanging candles.

“This is Where Our Story Begins”

Ceremony: Orchid Lawn

A single sign announces the beginning of an everlasting love story, preserving the aisle for the couple’s arrival. Scattered rose petals are strewn down the path and gather at the front of the space underneath a rustic pergola. Flowers and crystals hang from the wooden structure and provide an intricate backdrop for this couple’s ceremony.

 

Reception: The Phoenician Grand Ballroom

Illuminating candles are aglow on each table, accompanied by fresh floral arrangements and mirrored table numbers. The head table is bordered with an elaborate rose garland, ready to make a statement and complement the bridal party.

Favorite Wedding Tradition:

The “Anniversary Dance” – all couples begin on the dance floor and slowly get called off as the MC increases the number of years married. It’s so beautiful to see some of these couples together 30, 40, 50 years!

What’s your Wedding Pro Tip?:

Focus on what is most important to you. Is it keeping everyone on the dance floor? Hire a stellar music vendor. Is it the perfect instagrammable moment? Hire a published photographer. Are you a foodie? Pick a culinary team that is able to coordinate unparalleled menus. It can be so beneficial to focus on your needs, wants and of course, budget!

Why get married at The Phoenician?:

From the moment you arrive on property and travel up the front drive toward Camelback Mountain, there is a continuous feeling of grandeur, and it is consistent throughout every experience at the resort, especially during our beautifully orchestrated wedding day events. Our team, from start to finish, pride themselves in providing a luxurious experience for you and your guests on the most important day of your life.

What’s your Wedding Pro Tip:

Budget for a Wedding Planner! Your wedding planner is there to make the planning and day-of coordination the last thought in your mind; they will assist in booking all of your vendors, creating a timeline for evening, and staying on track with your checklist and budget. No bride should ever have to stress on her wedding day, and your planner is there to coordinate with your venue to ensure everything goes as planned.

Why get married at The Phoenician?:

Besides the fact that The Phoenician has spectacular views of the Sonoran Desert and provides luxurious service throughout, you can turn your big day into a celebratory weekend! I recommend taking advantage of all the resort has to offer- host your welcome dinner in one of our spacious restaurant private dining rooms, rent a cabana at the signature Mother of Pearl Pool, have a spa day with the girls or a round of golf with the guys, or host a post-wedding brunch for your family & friends that traveled far; the possibilities are endless, and you never have to leave the property!
