What a great way to start the new year; we could not have asked for a more amazing couple than Eileen and Jeff to kick off our 2017 weddings! Eileen and Jeff wanted to make this an experiential weekend for their guests, so we started the festivities with a nice welcome dinner for all out of town family members. The South West dinner showcased cuisine customized just for this dinner from The Camelback Inn's Rita's Kitchen. Because Eileen didn't have a traditional bridal shower, she wanted to honor all the special women in her life with a Mother's and Daughter's Holiday Tea. This was also hosted at The Camelback Inn, and allowed all of her guests to bring a special woman in their life (mother, sister, daughter or best friend) to enjoy a traditional Tea Service. We had a lot of fun coming up with a bright, colorful tablescape and a delicious menu. Saturday, was Jeff's birthday, and thankfully the weather held long enough so the family could celebrate Jeff's birthday with a lovely dinner outside on the patio. Although the weather didn't hold to our liking for the main ceremony on Sunday, Eileen and Jeff's wedding was beautiful and we would not have changed a thing! The family started the morning by attending church service together, and received a special blessing from their congregation's pastor, then came back to the resort to get ready for the evening's ceremony and reception. We were very fortunate to get a little blue sky for the first look - which turned out amazing! The intimate ceremony and dinner reception that featured Eileen's french heritage and Jeff's love for the west, was perfectly melded together throughout their decor and cuisine. I must say, Eileen's attention to detail throughout the menu and decor elements really made this a special day for us, and of course them! Congratulations again, Eileen and Jeff!
