A Christmas-Themed Wedding at Arizona Golf Resort in Mesa, Arizona

Camelia Ile (29 and a biller) and Simon Rachi (28 and a dispatcher) created a wedding around their favorite holiday: Christmas. They were married at the Arizona Golf Resort, decorated with lots of pine, red and winter white roses, cranberries and greenery throughout to emphasize the holiday theme. The ceremony took place outside, and the flower girls carried mistletoe pomanders down the aisle. A hot chocolate bar and tea stand at the cocktail hour helped guests take off the winter chill as they mingled. The couple provided wooden ornaments for their guests to sign with well-wishes to help decorate their Christmas tree. A traditional Romanian reception followed, capped with a wintery wedding cake decorated with white roses, red berries and pinecones to complement the centerpieces of pine, wood, flowers and candles. Camelia and Simon’s intimate wedding day was infused with holiday spirit from start to finish.
