Glamhattan: A Playfully Chic Shoot at Soho63

A sparkling nod to Big Apple glamour, this gold-infused shoot sought to bring some of the East Coast’s contemporary metropolitan flair to Arizona. “When it comes down to it, a black-tie affair is a sight seldom seen in the Grand Canyon State,” says photographer Casey Graham of I Do Photography. “We would love to see more of this type of soirée out West.” Dubbed “Glamhattan” by its conceptualizers, including Andrea Leslie Weddings & Events, the swanky shoot took place in downtown Chandler at SoHo63, a hip and historic event venue with a warm, modern vibe. The locale offered a fitting backdrop for the chic and playful urban setup that the creative team envisioned. Playing off the idea of champagne bubbles, a circular motif was carried throughout, and the details were bright, bold, and fun, just like a night on the town in the city that never sleeps.
Butterfly Petals designed an eye-catching bridal bouquet made up of vibrantly colored in-bloom peonies, romantic roses, and glittered succulents.
Glamorously modern attire was selected for the bride and groom, with both ensembles tying into the event’s motif.
Low centerpieces were grouped together to keep the focus on the rich texture of the linens, which were sourced from La Tavola.
Piece of Cake Desserts created a hand-painted pink-and-gold cake studded with tiny beads to represent rising bubbles.
Presented as part of a playful wall display, each escort card consisted of a paper bubble and came with a glass of gold-flaked bubbly.
An eight-foot-long handmade “love” sign sat atop the outdoor fireplace’s mantel. Reflecting the recurring circular theme, the letters were covered in fuchsia-painted pennies—$18.97 worth of pennies, to be exact! The sign added so much character to a typically underutilized space.

Peonies and gold and glitter?? I think that's the wedding trifecta!
