K + J -the 18th of February 2023

Kallie and Juan were married at The Venue at Chilleens on Saturday, February 18th 2023. Their beautiful ceremony started at 4:30 pm. Their floral arch was beyond perfect with the color accented drapery. The florals by Leapin Lilys were such a perfect match for this perfect couple. 

Their love was not only captured in their beautiful custom ceremony but also with their sweet pup, Raider as flower pup. 

We learned in their custom ceremony that Kallie & Juan met at the beginning of their senior year of High school. They were inseparable from the first date, where they fed ducks together. They did go their separate ways after graduation, Kallie headed to NAU and Juan joined the Marine Corp. (Thank you for your service Juan.) 6 months later they reunited, “By Chance Kallie & Juan were in Phoenix the same weekend. Juan had graduated from Bootcamp and Kallie was visiting from Flagstaff, Both were in town that very same weekend to visit family. By Chance? or FATE. I believe Fate brought them together. They talked all night and realized that they just could not live without each other. That was one, long tough year of handling a long distance relationship. Kallie would work late shifts and drive to California at midnight to spend time with Juan, she was there practically three weekends a month. God knew they were soulmates and ensured they would find their ay back to each other. Finally, Kallie and Juan just could not handle being apart any longer, so Kallie moved to California, where Juan was stationed. They got their first apartment together, it was an adorable place and they lived there for 3 years. Now many of you know Raider, in fact Raider is here with us today. Kallie and Juan adopted Raider when she was only 8 weeks old.( very young and very naughty back then) She is their little baby. The three of them are inseparable. They go everywhere together, even midnight runs to McDonalds, where Raider would always get her favorite treat, a puppy patty. Raider has been with them in the hardest, and the best times of their relationship.

The Vendors for their day were all apart of our All Inclusive Package and executed their vision perfectly. Their cake, made by Silver Rose Bakery, was a single tier with a dessert bar. The cake table was decorated with the cutest accents including a model of their sweet pup Raider. 

They added Appetizers provided by The Venue at Chilleens that allowed guests to have a snack while they were taking photos in the desert! The cutest guest also joined them in the desert, Poncho the Beer Burro! 

April with AZ Wed Pics captured all the moments of their day. We are so happy Kallie and Juan chose us for their wedding day!

What the bride said about her day 🥰

The Venue at Chilleens made my little girl dream wedding come alive!!! The venue itself doesn’t need much love, it’s beautiful on its own, but I was extra and brought lots of decorations. It was not a problem at all. They created my visions with little guidance of how I wanted everything set up. The staff set up everything before I even arrived on my wedding day, and it was absolutely beautiful. I did not lift a finger. They take care of absolutely every single thing. After saying I do, we walked into the chapel where we had our own little charcuterie board and drinks waiting. When we were taking our wedding photos, we were brought drinks from the bar. When we made our grand entrance, our food was sitting waiting for us. WITH DRINKS. My coordinator was Cabriegh, and she was a dream! She knew exactly what I wanted, and was the sweetest to work with! Absolutely beautiful, would rave about them to anyone and everyone.
