Destination I Do: Scottsdale, Arizona

While we’re based in Edmonton, Alberta, we’ve had the pleasure of planning and designing weddings in many beautiful destinations – both in Canada and abroad! This series showcases some of our favourite locations including information for couples considering a wedding away from home.

Destination ‘I Do’ Wedding Series: Scottsdale, Arizona

Arizona is a popular vacation and winter home destination for many Albertans – why not celebrate your wedding in the warm, dry heat with spectacular sunsets and stunning desert backdrops?!

Why Scottsdale?

  • Fly direct to Phoenix Sky Harbour International Airport from both Edmonton and Calgary.
  • Rain is rarely a concern, and temperatures are warm year round.
  • The venue options are plentiful. Choose from luxury resorts, golf & country clubs, outdoor gardens and more.
  • Your guests won’t run out of things to do – Scottsdale boasts more spas per capita than any other city in the USA, and there are over 200 golf courses in the area. The city also has a vibrant nightlife scene and desert hiking via Camelback Mountain or Pinnacle Peak Park.

Our Canadian summers are always so busy as people try to pack in trips to the lake, yard work, camping and ALL the weddings. We love the idea of getting married in a warm destination during shoulder season months like October, November, March and April. Your guests will love it too, as they’ll get to escape the cold winter!

Scottsdale Wedding Planner: Paula + Sheldon

Arizona is a popular vacation and winter home destination for many Albertans – why not celebrate your wedding in the warm, dry heat with spectacular sunsets and stunning desert backdrops?!

Paula + Sheldon did just that. To celebrate their love and unite their two families, they decided to host a destination wedding experience in one of their favorite locations: Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. A luxury hotel nestled in the foothills of Pinnacle Peak, this has been a special place since they first met, and was a natural choice for their wedding weekend location.

Friday kicked off the weekend events with an early morning golf tournament at The Boulders Golf Club – one of the top 12 golf resorts in the world. Later that evening, we welcomed guests with a casual Cowboy Cookout at Proof Restaurant overlooking the McDowell Mountains. Attendees were encouraged to wear western attire, and the menu was rich with hearty southwestern favorites.

The wedding day arrived with clear blue skies and sunshine. The ceremony was held outdoors on the Four Seasons Troon Lawn overlooking a picturesque desert scene. Immediately following the ceremony, guests were served drinks and canapés on a nearby terrace while the lawn was transformed for dinner. At the reception guests enjoyed a 4-course meal and several heartfelt toasts. As a surprise for the groom from his bride, we arranged for a spectacular fireworks display timed perfectly after one minute of their first dance outdoors under the stars!

Still brimming with excitement after the fireworks spectacle, guests were ushered into the Ironwood Ballroom for the after-party, where music from top Arizona DJs Desert House Productions filled the ballroom with expectant energy. Flooded with pink, orange and purple lighting, the space was designed to convey a desert sunset, signifying the end to an amazing weekend of events.

Winner of the 2014 Canadian Event Industry Star Award for Best Wedding and featured on Style Me Pretty, this wedding is full of bright and beautiful details. Enjoy this gorgeous collection of images from Stephanie Fay Photography.
