As a fun-loving Sagittarius, I should be spontaneous but really, I’m not. Plans always make me feel at ease and when things aren’t laid out in advance, I experience low-level anxiety so when I heard there was going to be a “flash” wedding, my heart fluttered a bit. I thought, “oh that couple must be so stressed!” See how poorly they took the news?
I love it! They look so completely happy. Let me explain. The Clayton on the Park is a new venue in Scottsdale and to celebrate their entry into the Arizona Wedding World, they held a contest for a free wedding for one deserving couple. The catch was that the couple would only have 12 hours notice that they were the winners. Can you imagine getting a call at 7am telling you that you would be married in 12 hours and everything had to be ready to go by the 7pm ceremony?
It was a whirlwind to say the least - Shasta and Robbie were notified that they won Friday morning by local TV personality Yetta Gibson, they called friends and family to notify them of the 7pm ceremony time, Shasta headed over to Inizio Salon for hair and toes, Robbie went to get the wedding bands, they met up at Azteca Bridal Salon to pick out their attire (Shasta also got her makeup done there) and voila! Wedding Time!
While the couple was prepping, the vendors who so generously donated their time, products and services were furiously working to make the magic happen. Laurie of Southwick Linens was busily setting the tables, Fran from Enchanted Florist was arranging and decorating, Barb from Let Them Eat Cake was putting the final touches on the cake and Kim from The Event Essentials was making the menu cards. This was a team effort to say the least.
Look at how great Shasta and Robbie look!
