Tucked away and gently embedded into Camelback Mountain, The Sanctuary has always been a treasure of The Valley. But to Melanie and Clide, The Sanctuary is more than just breathtaking views and luxurious experiences, it’s the place they began the most exciting chapter of their lives together.
It’s the place where Clide surprised Melanie with rose petals and candles.
It’s the place where he got down on one knee.
It’s the place where he slipped a diamond ring on her finger.
So there wasn’t any other spot they could imagine writing the next chapter of their love story. There wasn’t any other place that could turn his, “Will you?” to “I do.”
Melanie and Clide’s Sanctuary wedding was beautiful from start to finish. With a clean, classic look that screamed sophistication, Melanie had planned every detail perfectly, but what she didn’t plan for is the overwhelming emotion that swelled and overflowed when she saw her groom for the first time. Their first look was so sweet, and set such a joyful, emotional, romantic tone for the rest of the day. The way these two looked at each other, there was no denying their deep love and huge heart for one another. We loved every second of our time with them and felt honored to be there to capture a day celebrating such a beautiful love.
