Four Seasons Scottsdale Destination Wedding

This sweet couple treated their family and friends to a destination desert getaway Arizona for their wedding. Family and friends came from all over to attend this beautiful wedding. Care Schmidt, of Sterling Weddings and Events, planned and designed this gorgeous event weekend so that the bride, groom, and their family and friends could relax and soak up incredible Arizona Spring weather!

The wedding day started out with the girls getting ready in the bridal suite, and the boys getting ready together in a meeting room close to the ceremony location. We always like to spend time with our couples during their preparation time with friends because they are preparing for something very special, and with the ones they love most. Bonds are made and true friendship is shared during this time, and it comes across in the photos.
