Shannon & Jeff
May 9, 2009 at Royal Palms Resort and Spa
Shannon Boyd and Jeff Piccinelli watched a monsoon roll into the Valley as they celebrated their engagement at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale. Eight months later, the wedding went off without a hitch at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa, save for one small cloud: The night before the rehearsal, Shannon, who coordinated every detail, discovered that Jeff’s suit for the ceremony was blue—not black as ordered. To make certain, she double-checked the color in natural light at 6 the next morning, which confirmed her suspicions. After a frantic call to Neiman Marcus, a new black suit was measured, altered, and delivered to the couple by 3 that afternoon. Aside from that fleeting sartorial snafu and 105-degree weather, everything flowed for a magical day.
