Michelle and Matthew at The Royal Palms

Michelle and Matthew’s romantic Royal Palms wedding is one to remember. A beautiful neutral color palette, two dresses from our beautiful bride, and the kindest words from friends and family during toasts. We loved working alongside Andrea Leslie Weddings and Melissa Jill capturing their special day.

How They Met:

Michelle and Matthew met in law school! They didn’t really know each other during their first semester, but at a “bar review” during their second semester Michelle went up to him and asked why they never talk at school. They hit it off and have been together ever since!

The Proposal:

The two went to Sedona for Matthew’s birthday. They spent the day mountain biking, then kayaking around a winery. They headed back to their hotel and sat by Oak Creek with wine. Michelle looks over to her side and Matt is on one knee proposing to her. Right after they saw a water beaver swimming around, and for some reason that was the coolest thing Michelle says!

The Wedding:

The Royal Palms set the perfect backdrop for Michelle and Matthew’s wedding day. With the team of Andrea Leslie Weddings their dream day came to life. A beautiful white color palette, lush florals by Wildflower AZ, tons of greenery, and candle light made for an unforgettable day. The two celebrated with their friends and family by dancing the night away! It was the most perfect day.
