Julie and JD live in Chicago and wanted a beautiful and fun location that all of their out of state guests would enjoy for their destination wedding. Once they saw The Montelucia Resort and Spa, they just knew it would be the perfect venue. As you can see they were a picture perfect bride and groom as well!!

Julia Baker Confections designed this beautiful cake, the bride purchased the amazing broaches that were so gorgeous!

Julie recently sent a recommendation for me to another bride and I wanted to share her sweet words.

I would not only hire her again to help plan any event for me, I hope to keep in contact with her as a friend. She went above and beyond and made the days of my events and wedding run smoothly and without flaw. She is so worth her weight in gold! If I could give any advice from one bride to another, hire Sandy and cut somewhere else if she is not in your budget.

Ahhh, thanks Julie, you totally made my day!!

The day was centered around an “Old Hollywood” theme, the red carpet runner at the entrance to the cocktail hour on the Valencia lawn was so perfect.
This typewriter guest book was placed at the end of the red runner and their
guests typed sweet messages to the bride and groom.

Congratulations Julie and JD, what a great day, all my best wishes for an amazing new life together!! Can’t wait for you to visit Phoenix so we can have lunch!
