Wedding Wednesday - Wrigley Mansion Black Tie Wedding / by Laurie Cohen

Victoria and Clinton's wedding day was filled with blue skies and sunshine. But the brightest glow came from Victoria's giant smile that lit up every room she entered.  The wedding was filled with romance.  Classic black and white.  Wrigley Mansion, a Phoenix landmark, was the wedding venue and Kate was heading up the Sip and Twirl team for this modern day Arizona Wedding filled with old world elegance. I had a difficult time selecting photos from the batch Bradford sent me. They were all fabulous.  I can't wait for you to see the look on Victoria's face as she was about to start down the aisle...


Wrigley Mansion provides lovely accommodations for bride AND groom to get ready with their attendants.  Everyone was able to take their time getting ready as the team from Glam Lounge pampered the bride and all the attendants. 


So many darling details.  Everything was top notch, formal, black and white, with just a hint of sparkle.  


First look.

Arizona-Wedding-Sip and Twirl

 I watched with the bride from above the ceremony venue.  The guests were all being seated below when the most amazing thing happened in front of me.  Victoria had made a promise to herself to be fully present on her wedding day.  Before she made her way over to the stairs, she stopped, asked for a moment, and let herself feel the joy and excitement of the ceremony she was about to walk down to.  I watched as a wave of...well, almost surprise washed over her!  I saw an incredible sense of joy and it was palpable that she was truly aware that she was about to be married to the man she deeply loves.  We always tell our brides to take a few deep breaths, walk slowly and take everything in...but this is no small relax and be present...especially with a crowd of people waiting for you (and after a year of planning your wedding).  Weddings go by so fast, if only we could bottle the feeling and release that excitement a little at a time, once a week into the future.  What I learned from you Victoria, was priceless and I promise to share it with other brides.


Stunning views of the Phoenix Valley from the reception. 


The Groom and his band. 


To our loving, hilarious, mindful and gorgeous couple....we are so glad we are on social media together, because we miss you already.  You are the first faces we see as we come into our office in the morning and the last ones that see us leave. Thank you for letting Sip and Twirl share in your incredible wedding and for your unyielding enthusiasm and energy!
