The Love Story

George and Mira met on a football playoff day in Las Vegas when they were both rooting for the same team, the Seahawks. George growing up in Seattle, Mira pretended to be from there so they could strike up conversation. Since George lived in San Francisco and Mira in Arizona, they thought if would be fun to keep in touch and visit each other sometime. Little did they know after one breakfast together, they would soon be spending every weekend flying back and forth to see each other (not skipping on weekend for five months) until Mira picked up and moved to the great city of San Francisco to be with the love of her life. It was a dream scenario how they met, so they knew they needed to have a dream wedding to start their lives together.
Since Mira grew up in Arizona, they knew the Sanctuary would be just the right place to get married as it encompasses the true beauty of Arizona with its amazing valley views. The wedding was very modern and elegant, a true fairy tale wedding for both of them.
The inspiration for the color scheme was keeping a subtle, monochromatic theme with touches of glitz and sparkle. The flowers were off white with hints of blush, and the mens corsages a miniature cal Lilly. The men were in charcoal grey suits with black ties and the best man in a grey tie. The junior bridesmaid wore blush to accent the bridesmaids that were in charcoal grey and the maid of honor in black to pop.
The ceremony started with Ave Maria being played by the 3 piece string trio from Sweetwater Strings as the bridal party walked down the aisle. Canon D was the perfect song for the bride to walk down to and there was not a dry eye in the crowd (including the groom).
The escort cards were specially made by the bride using the grooms idea. The sign said “We got lucky and found love in Vegas, now get lucky and find your seat.” Each guest scratched off their card and their table number was unveiled.
The guests then found their seats by the dinner menus which were personalized with each guests name and dinner choice, and for a extra special personal touch a handwritten message from the bride and groom was on the back of each menu specifically for that person. The bride and groom sat in their king and queen chairs as they enjoyed dinner.
The photobooth was a hit all night long and never had a dull moment. The Rock Lobster band played hit covers from the 80s so the bride changed into her second dress to keep dancing the night away. Glow sticks were handed out to light up the dance floor. For the late night crowd their was a dessert bar and individual pizzas so everyone could last all night.
The next morning, they hosted brunch for all the out of town guests at the honeymoon suite where they were able to thank everyone, show off the fun photobooth guest book and send off everyone with their love and thanks.
