LVL Weddings & Events took the leap to expand from California to Arizona this year. In an effort to showcase LVL’s style in a new region, we assembled a dream team of vendors to feature the beauty of the desert. We chose to partner with Sanctuary on Camelback for the styled shoot, not only for its incredible views of Camelback Mountain, but the mix of desert and garden in their outdoor ceremony space.
We were incredibly lucky to have Melissa Jill Photography partner with us. Her desire to capture beauty through film photography is unmatched.
The inspiration behind the shoot was centered around a fresh, spring feel. Arizona Wedding Planner, Emily Schiesl, has a love for the Moscow Mule (particularly the copper mug) and the beautifully exotic flower, protea. You will see copper and the bright hues from the protea echoing throughout the tablescape and floral design by Petal Pusher, as well as the copper foil details on the stationary by Idieh Design.
Sanctuary’s resort boasts incredible views from all angles, but we settled on Paradise Views Lawn to set up a romantic tablescape under a wooden terrace by Petal Pusher (which also acted as a ceremony backdrop). The clean lines and simplicity of the resort played a part in the choice of Ines gown by BHLDN and menswear by Ted Baker—modern, tailored, and fresh.
LVL put out a model call for real couples instead of going through an agency- with the belief that actual couples and their authentic love is the perfect compliment to all the pretty details. Local Arizona couple, Emily & Jeff, fit effortlessly (no seriously, no pins needed!) into the BHLDN gown and Ted Baker menswear. Their love for each other jumps off the screen. Enjoy this dreamy copper and coral inspired desert shoot!
