Natalie Rappaport (33 and a recruiter) and Mark Rappaport (33 and a marketing executive) had a vision for their wedding: They wanted a modern theme supported by a weekend’s worth of activities to spend time with loved ones. They got married in their new hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona, at Clayton on the Park, a contemporary venue that set the tone for their Kate Spade-inspired theme. With the help of their wedding planner, Some Like It Classic, they paired the chic space with fuchsia, silver, and black and white with a few gold touches. Natalie and Mark had their ceremony indoors to keep it intimate, and included a sweet tradition of their mothers exchanging gifts from Natalie and Mark’s childhoods, as well as a few jokes from their officiant and friend to keep the atmosphere light. Following a cocktail hour and dinner, the party moved outside where their band, Smashed, played mash-ups of hits from the 1980s, '90s and today. (A group of locals even gathered outside to dance along with the music!) The best part? Natalie and Mark continued the fun all weekend with activities before and after the wedding day. Since everyone got to know one another before the wedding, Natalie and Mark think it made their day even better. See the details, captured by photographers Jeff+Amber, below.

Mark wore a gray suit with suspenders, a white tuxedo shirt and a silver striped tie. As a gift, Mark gave his groomsmen cuff links from where he became friends with each.
Natalie gave each bridesmaid a pair of Kate Spade earrings to go with her floor-length black chiffon dress and metallic shoes.
