How did you two meet or how did he propose?: While in nursing school and having no free time, I finally had some time off during labor day weekend and Tommy thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get away. Tommy took me to The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Tucson and we spent the day by the pool eating, drinking, and relaxing. We planned to go to dinner at Ignite, the restaurant inside The Ritz Carlton. It was wonderful to get dressed up and enjoy a nice dinner. We were seated alone in a private area, as if we were the only guests at the restaurant. Tommy got down on one knee at dinner and proposed to me. Tommy is very private and reserved, so it was the perfect engagement. After I said yes, the waiters cheered and brought us many desserts to celebrate.
Were you happy with the venue?: Tommy and I were very happy with the venue. The golf course was beautiful, classic, and prestige with the background of the gorgeous Superstition Mountains. From the large wood entry gates to the bright blue ponds, the landscaping was breathtaking. Encanterra Country Club’s decor has a tuscan theme and it is perfection. The tuscan theme is throughout the whole venue. I hardly had to decorate the venue because everything was already done. Kimberly, Angel, and the team at Encanterra Country Club were wonderful. They were polite, understanding, respectful, and flexible. They did everything I wanted and more. They were very professional and a pleasure to work with.
Describe the theme or color scheme of your wedding, and what you chose for your table setting at the reception: The theme of my wedding was classic and romantic. My color scheme included black and white. My groom and groomsmen wore black suites and my bridesmaids wear black dresses and heels. I am a fan of Audrey Hepburn and I tried to achieve her classic and elegant look in my wedding. My table setting at the reception included black and white theme as well. The linens were black, with white napkins and white chairs. The centerpieces were black and all different heights with white and light green flowers. Surrounding the base of the centerpieces, we added a special touch of diamond pieces pulling the whole look together.
What piece of advice would you give other brides planning their big day? A piece of advice I would give brides is to remember that this is your day! Don’t make decisions based on what other people want or think, do what you want and love!
