Sam and Derek Burkum – November 2nd, 2012 – Sun City, Arizona

With friends and family by their side, Sam and Derek became Mr. and Mrs. Burkum with a gorgeous Arizona sunset as the backdrop. Not even blown tires could dampen this sweet couple’s happy moment. They were all smiles the entire day as they celebrated being husband and wife, something they had been looking forward to for many months. The weather could not have been more perfect on November 2 in Sun City, Arizona, for their outdoor ceremony overlooking the country club. During their First Look under the shade of a tree, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house; to say that love was in the air would be an extreme understatement!

With the golf course in the background and only blue skies above them, they said their I Dos with those whom they love most in the world as their witnesses. As the bridal party danced their way back up the aisle, everyone knew that the reception was going to be a true celebration. Their colors of purple, black, and white made the space POP and added an elegant touch to their sophisticated simplicity. Touches of bling could be found everywhere you looked, not just in their jewelry! The bridal bouquet had rhinestones in the lilies, gems were strewn across guest tables, and the Manzanita branch centerpieces were dripping with dazzling crystals. Uplighting helped set the mood as the sun went down and filled the room with a stunning, royal hue.

Almost as soon as they ceremony ended, the party began. And how could it not with so many Wisconsin Badger fans in attendance? With the fight song being chanted for the Grand Entrance and the school colors garter on an NCAA football, Wisconsin ruled the reception without a doubt. DJ Steve kept the dance floor packed all night long and guests literally danced until they dropped. Once they couldn’t dance, they simply posed – in the Clique Photobooth that is. With different hats, feathery boas, and props to choose from, everyone had a great time snapping memories all night long. As the reception came to an end, no one wanted the party to stop, Celebrations by Amy Bacon girls included! A guest summed up perfectly what everyone was thinking about the night: “what a party!”

Thank you, Sam and Derek, for inviting Celebrations by Amy Bacon to be a part of such a wonderful day in your lives!
