The glitz and glam of a Gatsby inspired wedding is enough to make anyone fall in love again. The dream of Ashley Jones from Beginning and End Photography became a reality with the help of Jessica Nielsen of J. Lobbins Photography and Tara Chatterton of Tara Nichole Photo. Set against the timeless elegance of the Chateau de Vie in Chandler, AZ, this styled wedding and elopement showcases how the roaring 20’s is not only romantic, but oh so glam. No wedding begins without a stunning invitation and this dramatic black and gold suite provided by Lola Lee Invitations is sure to grab any potential guest’s eye. Bloom and Blueprint brought this shoot to life by incorporating personal items such as the engraved flatware and stemware with delicate florals and gold accents. The sweetheart table provided by Prim Rentals creates the ideal private getaway for any bride and groom after a busy wedding day. Sift Bakehouse put the icing on the cake, pun intended, with a tiered cake coordinated to the bold invitation suite. Celebrity Tux and Tails made sure the groom and his guys were dressed to the nines in classic bowties and well fitted suits and an almost all white suit sets groom Blake apart from the norm. Whether it be an intimate elopement or large scale party, the glam bride wants to look the part. Elopement bride Kaylee, real life fiancé to her groom Andy, epitomized the sexy, slinky, glam vibe of the 20’s in a fully sequined Terani gown. And our main bride Katrina, real life sweetheart to husband Blake, was elegance itself in a gorgeous nude beaded gown from Bella Lily Bridal. And in a trend that should be here to stay, her bridesmaids donned differing beaded gowns by designer Adrianna Papell from Bella Bridesmaids. Topping off their beautiful attire was a mix of subtle beauty and dramatic boldness provided by Hair by Haley and Arizona Bridal Stylist. Even the heat from a hot August summer day in Arizona could not melt the class, elegance, and bold flair this Gatsby inspired glam wedding shoot provided. A unique outdoor canopy set under the trees beside the lake was the perfect way to celebrate timeless love with the humor, wit, and charm of officiant Clyde Greenwood.
