JW Marriott Camelback Inn Wedding – Chaya & Ben

It was overcast all day, and sprinkling pretty consistently on Chaya and Ben’s wedding day. Between photos they would dart back into buildings and under patios to make sure everyone stayed dry. They do say in some cultures, rain on your wedding day is considered good luck, symbolising fertility and cleansing. Ben and Chaya smiled through it all, laughing and enjoying every minute of their less-than-dry morning. 

Thankfully, less than an hour before their wedding was set to start, the clouds gave way, the sun peaked through, and it was at this point, that Ben lept for joy upon hearing the news that their wedding would be outside!

Chaya said, “Ben and I had two things on our mind for our wedding- our commitment to one another, and having a great party! My vision for the day was shaped by my favorite rich colors- burgundy, navy and dark green with gold accents. I wanted to be in Scottsdale for the amazing backdrops and fun cacti/plants. The florals were chosen because I love ranunculus and succulents and Mandi paired them with fun accents like the eucalyptus and berries. We also loved our carrot wedding cake and the florals were amazing with the simple buttercream decoration.”

And Ben says, “During the morning of the ceremony, I was afraid that we weren’t able to get the wedding day that we ultimately wanted due to the inclement weather; I was eating lunch with my best man, and I remember smiling but dreading bad news that we would be having the ceremony inside. Chaya had been anxious throughout the week leading up the wedding, constantly looking at the weather reports. When the skies parted and we were able to have that amazing sunshine, the beautiful landscape to only make the ceremony sweeter, it was a blessing! I was ecstatic that the staff was able to move a chupah that was meant to be immovable to complete our dream wedding. I jumped in the air and embraced my beautiful bride!”
