Samantha and Justin met while they were both working at the Hotel Palomar in downtown Phoenix. Justin was instantly attracted to Samantha, but she played hard to get. They became friends and six months later they took a trip to Vegas with Samantha’s family for Thanksgiving. That’s where they became more than friends!
Justin proposed at Samantha’s Barre3 class. She’d called him after work and he said he’d see her at home later. Meanwhile, he had a plan. At the end of class, Samantha and her classmates were lightly meditating to music. Suddenly, Justin’s voice came on over the track. He talked about what an incredible person Samantha is and how much he loves her. Just then, he entered the room and as Samantha opened her eyes, there he was, ring in hand. He asked her to be his forever and of course, she said yes!
Their wedding day started with first looks outside their venue, Chateau Luxe. After that private moment, the happy couple exchanged vows beside crisp white floral arrangements. Samantha was stunning in her trumpet cut gown with its sweetheart neckline. And her bridesmaids wore champagne gowns that certainly brought the sparkle! At the same time Justin was handsome in blue while his groomsmen rocked classic black.
The reception decor featured pastel florals and cascading orchids. In addition, gold accents added glamour while crystal details gave the space a modern feel. Pale lavender uplighting and rose gold linens completed the decor. After dinner, Samantha kicked off her Manolo’s and slipped on some sandals to dance the night away with her groom and their guests. Congratulations Samantha and Justin!
