The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa Wedding – Breanne & Ryan
It was a beautiful October day at the Westin Kierland in Scottsdale Arizona for Breanne and Ryan’s wedding. Breanne says that her first job when she moved back to Arizona was at the Westin Kierland. “Having worked there and seen many events take place, I have always loved their outdoor space with the string lights, palm trees and desert surroundings. It was a very easy decision for us when it came to choosing a venue! For colours, we played off of the outdoor vibes and kept our colours neutral… cream, eucalyptus and a hint of pale pink within the flowers.”
During Breanne’s bridal preparation, half of the girls had hair and makeup done, and the mood was super laid back and fun as they bounced between stylists, sipped drinks and gave advice on Breanne’s dress and reminded her to eat a bit of salad because she shouldn’t get married on an empty stomach. Breanne got dressed with her mother and then walked out to show her girls to gasps and “oooohs” and covered mouths from how gorgeous she looks! Meanwhile, Ryan was getting ready with Breanne’s brothers, who are all sporting a great shade of blue and they walked confidently and even did a little putting on the green at the Westin golf course. Best dressed golfers that course has ever seen for sure!
The bridal party was strictly family which was so unique to the couple to have them included in their day. Ryans sister was his best (wo)man, and Breanne’s brothers were her Brides(men). A small party, simple, and important because it was family.
They walked outside once they were ready for their day to begin and had some bridal and family photos taken, and the excitement built as the family joined the picture. Proud mothers and fathers, excited sisters and brothers and grandparents dressed to the nines for this fantastic wedding day. The mood only built more as all the guests arrived and anticipated seeing the bride and groom. Up until this point, Ryan and Breanne hadn’t seen each other yet! So when those big beautiful doors opened and out came Breanne with her father walking beside her, Ryan had the biggest smile on his face!
Breanne says that “there were so many “ favourites” of the day. Getting bridal ready with my closest girlfriends, having my mom help me into my dress and of course my father walking me down the aisle. With all of that, I think my TOP favourite moment was the final dance of the night. Just Ryan and I jamming out to Sky Full of Stars and having all our friends/family surround us and cheer us on. That was the song we got engaged to so it will always hold a special place in my heart.”
