Lauren & Spencer

A Real Wedding at Omni Scottsdale Hotel Resort & Spa at Montelucia

1. How did you two meet or how did he propose?: Cabo San Lucas on with Dinner on the beach, what I thought was a family vacation with my family turned into everything and more. After our dinner he fooled me again, he took me upstairs where my family was waiting with the big grand surprise his mom and sister had secretly flown in that day to be with us to celebrate as one big family for the rest of our vacation!
 2. How did you find your venue? Were you happy with it?: Being from Seattle, I had always dreamed of having a view of the water, since having all our friends and family present was so important we knew we had to stay in AZ. We love the view of camelback Mountain as well as the beautiful resort for all of our guests to enjoy. We were beyond thrilled with the venue and the people we worked with. The first time I met our Catering Mgr. Courtney Townsend I knew she was the one I wanted to work with. Her upbeat personality and service excellence was above and beyond.
 3. What piece of advice would you give other brides planning their big day?: One thing that was very important to me was to ensure that every friend and family member enjoyed the day just as much as we did. Although I plan events both social and corporate for a living and had no problem planning the wedding it was absolutely without a doubt essential to have a Day of Coordinator! She is the one that over saw the day and allowed all our friends and family to enjoy the day just as much as we did!
