Dramatic Flair for Days


Mar, 07, 2024

Bachelor nation, rise up. This one’s for you.

All fans of the Bachelor franchise are fans of romance and dramatic flair. Arielle and James’s wedding has both.

“When James proposed, he surprised me with a plane tour through the mountains of Denali National Park as a ‘3-year anniversary present’ during a trip to Alaska,” says Arielle. “Maybe he was a bit too insistent on dressing nicely for ‘holiday card’ photos, or maybe it was odd that he was willing to fly on a small plane despite his fear of heights, but unsurprisingly, I knew exactly what was coming.” 

Their dramatic flair continues and seeps into every detail of their big day. 

The happily engaged couple then decided on Park City as the location for their wedding, their ‘home away from home’ where they spend the holidays together every year.

“We wanted a classy, monochromatic, black-tie affair with a backdrop to wow our guests,” Arielle says, “We found Blue Sky and it was exactly what we wanted.”

Just like any good romance, it’s all about the details. Arielle and James’s vows

focused on the little things.

“Whether it was how James falls asleep in the passenger seat on car rides, or

James vowing to help me maintain my Delta status. Our guests said how they felt

like they learned so much about us as a couple and why we were meant to be

together based off of our words,” Arielle says.

“Our goal was for all of our family and friends to feel our love for each other and

get a glimpse into our goofiness and the fun we have together,” Arielle says.

They also told quite the story with their first dance. Arielle’s grandmother, Francine, is a ballroom dance instructor and choreographed their first dance. The lifts

and sways left their guests with their jaws on the floor. Justin Bieber’s “Lifetime” played while they danced their way into marriage.

Their ‘final rose’ was CO2 cannons on the dance floor during the songs “Levels”

by Avicii and “Calling” by Alleso.

Arielle and James are fluent in love languages.

The glamorous couple took the time to step back and write thank you letters to their parents and each member of the wedding party. “It’s a really powerful moment to reflect on the highs and lows and truly appreciate how they’ve helped you get to where you are today,” says Arielle.
