From the Bride:

Both my husband and I are from Arizona. Therefore, our inspiration for our magical day was romantic, elegant, and classic Arizona. As well as Peace, Love and Happiness. TJ is a graphic design artist so he designed our invitations, place cards, menus, and seating chart. We wanted the beautiful mountains and desert scenery surrounding our special day. Which is why we fell in love with our venue Sassi, which is tucked away in the McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale, Arizona. 

Our ceremony was outside right before sunset with picturesque cactus and desert landscape for all to enjoy. TJ and I decided to incorporate romantic elegance into our ceremony by draping two ivory and blush tone floral arrangements over the stonewall and one on our unity table. As well as tall glass candleholders with ivory candles on the isle side of the ceremony chairs, and ivory rose pedals lined the center of the isle. We conducted a wine box ceremony and sealed love letters as well as the vows we wrote to one another in our custom wine box. We also had a harpist play our ceremony music to help set the vibe for our joyous evening. The song she played as we walked down the isle for the first time as man and wife was, “Is this Love,” by Bob Marley, which is one of our favorite musicians. 

Cocktail hour was held in the foyer with a gorgeous fountain in the center and tea lights lining the exterior of the fountain, as the sunset behind the esthetically pleasing mountains. Placed at the bar were personalized Laidlaw napkins, and our seating chart was in the shape of our state. Our tables were named after cities we have made memoires in throughout our state. And our DJ played some of our favorite tunes from Frank Sinatra, George Strait and Bob Marley just to name a few. The dinner captain rang the dinner chimes, which welcomed our guests to dinner. 

Fireplaces were gleaming on either side of the reception area as our quests were seated. The centerpieces were a romantic mix of high and low blush tone and ivory floral arrangements. The chairs had ivory covers with champagne colored sashes tied on each chair. Dinner was plated and guests were served grass fed beef tenderloin with truffle mash potatoes or fresh caught sea bass with vegetable couscous. 

Our wedding cake had fresh flowers and lace made out of frosting draped down from each tier. Our cake topper continued the chevron theme from our wedding invitations, place cards and dinner menus. As well as listing Mr. and Mrs. Laidlaw. I was really adamant about one thing, the flavor of our cake! I have always had funfetti with chocolate frosting as my birthday cake ever since I was a little girl. So one layer of our wedding cake was funfetti, which turned out amazing! Our guests were encouraged to sign our guest book throughout the evening, which were wooden block letters that spelled: Peace Love & Happiness.

Guests danced the night away to our favorite songs! We are country fans and have a dear friend of our family who is a phenomenal singer. He sang one of our favorite songs, “My Best Friend,” by Tim McGraw. We did a grand exit with sparklers and as guests left they were handed personalized water bottles with our last name Laidlaw and 2014.
