Carefree Resort Wedding – A Styled Shoot

CHRIS FRAILEY

When I’m not chasing brides down the aisle, I am chasing storms across the Arizona desert.

Back in March I photographed an amazing styled shoot hosted at the Carefree Resort. This shoot was organized by the cracker jack team at AZ Finest Wedding Sites. They assembled a talented group of artists to showcase the Carefree Resort property. Our session would not have been successful without the support of Curt Moroney and JenniferWiebe from the resort. They ensured we had everything we needed to get the job done. For those looking for a venue with a rustic charm and gorgeous desert views, look no further.

This entire shoot was assembled by Cara with A Day to Cherish. A wedding is truly a day to cherish and a good wedding planner is a must have. Cara had every detail in place and made sure that the day was perfect!

Once we arrived at the venue, Teri from AZ Finest Weddings went over our agenda and shot list. She had things covered from A to Z to showcase the work of everyone involved. We began with the details as our models were being prepped by the talented Sabrina Miller-Castillo and Amanda Kolasinski of Babydoll Weddings

Our first set of shots were of the cake provided by Lesley Whatcott of Lesley’s Creative Cakes. The attention to detail on the cake was stunning. What caught my eye more than the pipework was the color chosen. It blended perfectly with the natural setting of the resort.

A styled shoot would not be complete without some of the details that are involved with a wedding. Kerri Sydell of Nora Belle Designs put together a stunning display of paper products. These aren’t your average invitations. The attention to detail along with the sheer artwork put into this invitation set is incredible. Who wouldn’t want their invitations going out like these!

Of course you can’t have a wedding without the flowers. We were blessed with stunning creations from Brian Bertolucci with Avant-Garde Floral Design. Watching Brian bring to life each of our shooting areas with his arrangements was truly inspiring. His choice of colors and flowers were spot on for the shoot. Having a professional florist decorate your wedding is certainly a way to take it to the next level.
