When planning her April 2018 wedding to beau Corey Corbit, Alicia Stolte desired to keep things simple and elegant. “But I also wanted a fun, bright flair,” she explains. The inherently fun and sexy backdrop provided by the Hotel ZaZa laid the groundwork, and her dream team of vendors — including planner Kate Powell, LJ Flower Co. and Aztec — took it from there. Alicia’s desired aesthetic carried over to her perfectly natural hair and makeup look, courtesy of Sunkissed and Made Up and Lindsey Kidd. Her gorgeous Rivini wedding gown from Ivory Bridal Atelier upped the sparkle factor, and with blooms in bold shades and tunes by local fave Password, the Corbit wedding had plenty of fun flair!


A towering four-tiered cake from World Catering Bakery incorporated the same bright blooms Alicia selected for her bouquet.
