The combination of elegant romance, antique appeal, and Eastern vibes create a stunning look for this Southern Arizona wedding at Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain. Dana and Michael’s beautiful wedding mixes a variety of elements that come together to produce a truly one-of-a-kind event. The couple originally met on Tinder and were surprised because they already knew each other, as they had lived in the same building. When they went out for the first time together, they were comfortable with each other and knew they had something special together. As they found out later, they were almost set up on a date with each other a few years earlier – it was definitely fate! After over a year of dating, Michael popped the question while on a trip to Wisconsin. Dana said yes, and the couple were able to celebrate in the company of both families!
Dana and Michael held both their ceremony and reception at the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain. A majestic backdrop of desert mountains and landscape provided amazing views for the guests. Bridesmaids walked down the aisle in chic black, neutral or patterned gowns from Bella Bridesmaids. Delicate flowers interspersed the altar and brought a soft element to the ceremony. After the “I do’s” guests enjoyed the amazing food catered by the Ritz. The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain also created the couple’s unique ruffled ivory cake latticed with white florals and fern-like greenery. Being an interior designer, Dana knew how to bring her and Michael’s vision for their wedding to life – and the result was a fun celebration of love and joy. At the end of the night, guests retired to their rooms at the Ritz and took with them potted succulents as party favors. The couple later honeymooned in Maui.
