Chandler Arizona Weddings – Historic Elegance at Crowne Plaza Phoenix – Chandler Golf Resort, commonly known as San Marcos Resort of Chandler, Arizona!

If you had to choose one word to sum up what inspired Sloane Hansen of Events by Sloane when she designed this photo shoot at the Crowne Plaza Phoenix Chandler Golf Resort, it would have to be “history”. This luxurious, Mission Revival-style resort dates back to 1912 when it served as a winter getaway for the rich and famous, making it the ideal setting for a wedding design with romantic historic elegance.



Sloane chose a color palette of peach, cream and burgundy, then asked Jaime Mattson of Pop N Daisies to work her magic with the floral design. Jaime achieved a look of classic rustic elegance by incorporating Tiffany peach roses, burgundy and Juliet peach garden roses and cream stock accented with Italian and Israeli ruscus and tree fern. We love the dramatic impact she made on the bride’s bouquet by adding burgundy hanging ameranthus. Burgundy appears again in the simply elegant invitation suite by Rene Showalter of Celebrations in Paper.

Sloane wanted to showcase the resort’s stunning outdoor ceremony site, so she had Jaime adorn the white pergola with her gorgeous arrangements, then added rustic wood halo chairs from Event Rents. Their acrylic backs clearly enhance the view, and a sprinkling of rose petals paves the way down the aisle.



For her table décor, Sloane chose a harvest wood table accented with a sheer cream runner from La Tavola and a vintage-style wood chandelier. Her copper-rimmed chargers, flatware with pearlescent handles and elegant pink glassware look as though they would have been right at home when this historic resort first opened. 




There’s nothing like surprising guests with something totally unexpected. Meet Pancho, the adorable burro from Cave Creek Beer Burro. He not only serves up refreshing beverages from his saddle – he provides endless photo ops, too! No doubt he was eyeing the mouth-watering charcuterie board from Harmony Board. Sorry, Pancho, it’s for guests, only!




All eyes will be on this bride as she descends the resort’s iconic staircase in her gorgeous lace gown with its elegant train as she makes her way to meet our handsome groom in his classic black tux. The delicate detail on the luscious three-tiered cake by Piece of Cake Desserts complements our bride’s gown.

Sloane and her talented team proved how you can take a modern wedding and give it a timeless, historic feel for any Chandler Arizona Wedding!
