They say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but that’s not the case for Michael and Priscilla. The couple, who met by chance during weekend getaways to Las Vegas, fell in love long-distance and finally brought their playful and high-spirited romance home to stay in Phoenix. During a date night ice skating in downtown Phoenix, Michael sat Priscilla down by the tree in the middle of the rink. He wondered out loud if the ornaments came off the tree right before reaching up to pluck one off. Priscilla was shocked, but this was all part of the plan. Michael pulled a ring from the ornament, dropped to one knee and proposed!

With a backdrop of the Superstition Mountains, the couple tied the knot in a light, fun and completely unique romantic desert wedding at The Paseo captured by Saje Photography. Their wedding was a huge celebration of their love executed to perfection with an amazing vendor team and Your Jubilee at the helm. Most importantly, Michael and Priscilla’s children were part of the ceremony, and Priscilla’s oldest daughter walked her down the aisle, flooded with emotion over her mom’s big day. The ceremony was elegant, with a wooden arch draped in sequined gold linen, and Priscilla stunned her guests as she walked down the aisle in a lace and tan mermaid dress from the Bridal Boutique of Arizona. As a co-host of the Matthew Blades radio show on Mix 96.9, it felt perfect to have Matthew Blades himself officiant Priscilla and Michael’s wedding!

After the couple said “I Do”, they and their guests partied till dawn at the reception, which was artfully decorated by The Petal Theory, The Confetti Studio, Creative Occasions and Lace and a Barn. Complete with a fun photo booth, a hot cookie food truck and a rockin’ DJ, Priscilla and Michael’s wedding was the perfect mix of elegant and sportive, and it was full of good vibes and good times for all. After all the partying was done, Priscilla and Michael escaped to Playa del Carmen, Mexico for a relaxing beach honeymoon.
