Our Talented Contributors

One of our most important partners on a wedding day is our documentarians. All the planning, the beauty the magic is so completely inspiring. But long after the candles have blown out and the glasses are empty, we want to be left with more then just our overfilled hearts and achy feet. That is why having the right photographers and cinematographers is so important!

When creating the new launch of Meant2Be Events {link to home page}, it was important that we told the story that we strive for- carefree fun planning of one of the most important milestones they can share amazing couples can dream together, celebrate each other and enjoy this monumentous occassion!

We carefully choose each of the images seen on our front page! Let us share some stories with you!

DO NOT CROP OR ALTER PHOTO IN ANY WAY

Tara & Greg

These two were married last year at Desert Mountain Clubhouse on a very stormy weekend. These two and their families traveled in from Canada to celebrate their big day. We only met this couple once at the very beginning of their planning and they trusted us with their entire planning process from thousands of miles away! When they expressed wanting a very editorial style of photography – the choice was clear! It had to be Jasen Arias Weddings!

Tara’s dress was jaw-dropping from talented designer Inbal dror . We couldn’t stop drooling over it. These two couldnt be more in love with each other and it was so clear that these two were perfect for each other! Tara’s mother was so sweet – she let us know when her next daughter ties the knot- we are heading to Canada to help! We have our passports packed & are standing by!

A sweet note from Tara:
I just want to say what an incredible job you did with everything for the wedding. To say it exceeded my expectations is an understatement. Everything was absolutely beautiful and it really was the best wedding I’ve ever been too:) Thank you once again for all of your hard work, I know it’s not easy over email and being remote but you certainly are a miracle worker!

We wish them the very best! Click here to see more of their stunning nuptials .

Amanda & Josh

These two traveled in from California to say I do among the red rocks of Boulders Resort & Spa. Amanda’s family owns Fez Parker Winery in Los Olivos. And guess what? She assists with the weddings at the vineyard! So she had a very distinct vision for her big day! We had NINE- yep count ’em NINE decor companies assisting to pull of what was nothing less then magic for these two! Of course you need an amazing photographer to capture it all! Katina Patriquin was a perfect fit to tell their story- check out more images here ! These two have been featured in Borrowed & Blue as well!

She also had an incredibly talented cinematographer that day as well- Serendipity Cinema . We cannot tell you how important video is at capturing a real time expression of your big day! See for yourself!

A love note from Amanda:
I feel so lucky that Meant2Be was recommended to me by my venue, (a major Scottsdale resort). I had some very out of the normal requests for my wedding and design, and thanks to M2B Events and their vendors, they made it all happen. Every last detail was taken care of and I literally just had to show up. She let me be involved as much or as little as I wanted. And when I needed a shoulder and a little talk and encouragement, they were real and down to earth and got me back on track. I cannot imagine having planned this wedding without Meant2Be. It is more than just a job for them!

Sarah & Cameron

Could they be the cutest? These two said I do at Sanctuary Resort recently and it was spectacular to say the least! You know how good it is when the resort now uses them as their poster couple for weddings! Oh yes- it was that good! Also captured by our lovely Katina you can see a tight shot of their sweetheart table as the bottom image and and the fab video featured was shot by Bright Bokeh!

A love note from Sarah:
After last minute changes with my wedding coordinator at my venue, M2B Events was referred to me to ease my stress, help coordinate between all my vendors, and let me be a guest at my own wedding. She swooped right in, and took over, so I could actually enjoy my time leading up to the big day! Regina and her team were very professional and a pleasure to work with! They allowed me to only have one role on my big day…..BRIDE! My wedding was a dream come true and I cannot thank Regina and her team enough for helping to make it the most amazing day of my life!

WE LOVE YOU TOO SARAH!

And drum roll please! The last video shared on our home page is from the ever vivacious Romona & oh so lucky hubby Jerrold!

From start to finish- you cannot help but madly adore this woman! She has the most contagious energy and her love and care for concern for others is so inspiring! Her planning was a labor of love- because she is head over heels in love with her man! From the custom dance floor, the flip flop station, the hanging cake, the band, the VIP escort card badges for her WEDDARTY set in the stanchioned purple carpet entrance for her guests…it was a 2 day set up and worth every blister on our feet by the end of the night! Every detail was captured by Hagerty Photography and ModWed Films

We are so excited to share some of our favorite partners on our new site! Thank you for all that you do!
