This weekend, we had the privilege of standing alongside some of Arizona’s most accomplished wedding professionals at El Chorro, one of the Valley’s most historic and beautiful wedding venues, for a boutique bridal open house called “The I Do Experience.” It was an afternoon of brides-to-be sipping sweet champagne while walking through a wonderland of sparkling linens, colorful florals, hand-crafted centerpieces, and, of course, delectable desserts — still one of our favorite perks of this job! Any day we get to indulge in El Chorro’s world-famous sticky buns is marked as an automatic success in our book, but sharing in the excitement of newly engaged couples and developing stronger friendships with our industry peers at the same time truly made for an unforgettable experience. Just another great reminder of why we love what we do. A very special thanks to Lindsey at El Chorro and Outstanding Occasions for hosting, designing and co-organzing the entire event.

Just before the guests arrived, we grabbed a few detail shots of the table setups around the room. How could we not? This stuff is gorge!

It’s not a big secret that we both have the biggest sweet teeth in town, so we can’t thank Ruze Cake House enough for satisfying our cravings all afternoon. If you look closely enough, you’ll see the salted caramel macaroons that almost made us die of pure delicious goodness.

The tables designed by the outstanding ladies of Outstanding Occasions and frosted with florals from Table Tops Etc. had us wishing we could get married all over again.

And if you’re looking for luxury linens, trust us, La Tavola Fine Linens is your go-to destination. Their prints, patterns, sequence, and more adorned all the tables at the event, and we can’t emphasize enough how much great linens completely change the look of an entire room! They generously let us borrow this champagne sequence linen for our table, and it took every ounce of self control we had not to take it home with us!

The whole day was such a blast. But the best part? When everyone’s gone and everything’s packed up, we’re always so thankful that we get to go home — together.
