We are incredibly lucky to have some amazing people involved in our wedding. We can not wait until the big day so that we will see the amazing-ness that they will produce. Our photographer, Melissa Dunstan, and event designer, Kim Duncan, are quite possibly two of the most talented ladies in the Arizona Wedding industry and on top of that really great people as well. Perhaps I am biased but I thought I’d show you a little of what I already know: That these ladies are incredible! Here are some real wedding pictures to inspire you and awe you.
What I love is Melissa’s ability to capture details. You know all the things you don’t really get a chance to appreciate on the big day while you are wrapped up in a whirlwind of all the wedding festivities. The little details are what truly make weddings unique so it’s nice to have such beautiful pictures of them when the day is over.
As a planning bride I know all the work and time that goes into selecting each and every little thing. From the dress to the flowers on the cake. All that should be documented and she does just that.
I love the rings on the champagne corks! So cute!
The following are weddings designed by KD Event Designs. Kim has a background in interior design and she has a knack for pulling everything together. Her designs are unique to the couples she works with and truly impressive.
Speaking of details, Kim nails them. From the tables, to the ceremony, to the decor around the reception she thinks of it all. It’s truly amazing what she can do and I continue to be impressed each time I visit her blog.To other planning brides, I recommend getting to know your vendors on more than just a professional level. It is crucial on the day of your wedding to know you have people you will get along with and you can trust. I feel completely confident to put my big day in their hands and I am honored that they have decided to take on the responsibility!
If you’ve been following the progress for awhile, you know that Kim Duncan from KD Event Designs is the official designer of The Charity Wedding. We couldn’t be more pleased because her work is simply amazing and that is a huge understatement. She has a knack for capturing the personalities of the couples she works with and making them shine through her decorating. Case in point, she recently did an outdoor wedding which was featured on the Style Me Pretty Blog. Style Me Pretty is well known in the world of wedding blogs and somewhere I frequently visit for ideas and inspiration. The best of the best get featured here and Kim is a perfect fit. She proves that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a beautiful wedding and unique details can make for an outstanding setting. Here are a few pictures from her wedding featured on Style Me Pretty. The photography is by Katrina and Andrew Wallace of Sedona Bride.
I LOVE the apples. They are simple yet classy, bring a splash of color, and people can eat them! When I look at these pictures, I think this wedding seems like something posed for a magazine shoot. It is beautiful and unique, just the way I like it! As you can see they have a dessert table complete with pies. I guarantee no one complained there was no wedding cake. So if you like pie, or brownies, or even candy bars, go for it. It’s your wedding! For more pictures check out Kim’s website or Sedona Bride.
Congrats Kim! We feel incredibly lucky to have you help us on our special day.
