Two love birds from New York’s Broadway fell in love and relocated to the sunny state of Arizona. Kent and Heidi originally had their upstate New York destination wedding ceremony in Central Park that summer. To include their closest family and friends in their new marriage they held a Phoenix Privates estates winter wedding in the Arizona Biltmore area. There wedding was inspired and infused with their interests: New York, Broadway music, and Beauty and the Beast.
Kent and Heidi brought the Big Apple’s magical city and turned their backyard into a glamorous affair. In Phoenix’s Biltmore area the neighborhoods are lined with long graveled pathways and a grove of mature olive trees.
The wedding couple share a love for the arts of music, in particular the classics and Broadway. There were subtle details with notes of music interwoven in their wedding day. The bride’s favorite instrument is the Harp. In honor of her love for this instrument, Kent incorporated their passion for music by having this song, “The Little Fountain” playing in the background when he proposed to her.
Kent was such a dapper groom! He wore classic New York attire with a black suit. His wardrobe choice was inspired by James Bonds. Kent was intentional with every wedding detail; he had his shirt monogramed with “I Do” and his pants with “True Love 10/25”.
Classic groom shoes served on a platter!
There are many lenses into seeing New York City. Kent and Heidi’s favorite was seeing the classic, timeless and elegant details of New York. To incorporate the classics Heidi wore a white modern dress with splashes of floral colors lining the trimming. Heidi made for a gorgeous bride!

To love on their guests the wedding couple chose to have complimentary vallet as the guests started to arrive around cocktail hour.
For the couple’s reception they hosted their guests in an intimate dining space with stunning classic vibrant decorations. There were over 20 varieties of vintage plates and each one was hand selected by the bride. The couple enjoyed in their past time to read so at the center of each table the floral centerpieces were elevated with vintage books. To add to the vibrancy, each table number was marked with a fresh bright red apple, organically displaying the table number. To complete this Arizona winter wedding, stringed lights were overhead for a festive evening and ambiance.
