I’ve been wanting to post about my incredible bachelorette party for a while now and I’m finally getting around to it! First off, I cannot thank Stay With Style Scottsdale enough for letting us have my celebration in their BEAUTIFUL rental home with endless amenities and services! We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend in the most amazing home. If you are thinking of having your bachelorette party or any type of celebration in Scottsdale, I highly recommend booking with them! Check out all their properties here! My girls went above and beyond to throw me the best celebration I could ever ask for!
We chose to have my party in Scottsdale because 1) one of my Maid of Honors and so many of my friends live there and 2) I wanted to stay in a home by Stay With Style Scottsdale so bad and with their generosity and God’s alignment of the opportunity, it became reality!
Plus there are SO many things to do in Scottsdale…besides the bars! As a bride who doesn’t care for “going out”, Scottsdale doesn’t seem like the right place to go. However, our weekend was packed full of activities that matched my personality and interests perfectly! There is so much more to Scottsdale than the stereotypes. I was also surrounded by all of my closest gals so whatever the festivities, I knew it was going to be so much fun and full of celebration of becoming a wife!
We were lucky enough to stay in this amazing house that holds 20 PEOPLE…yes, 20 PEOPLE! Not only was it spacious, gorgeous, and full of amenities but it was in the perfect location. We were only five minutes away from Kierland + Scottsdale Quarter, all of the great restaurants, and so many different hiking destinations.
Below are photos of the backyard….a huge pool, adorable fire pit area, and huge gathering space where we were able to have a yoga class, led my talented sister-in-law!
They even have beautiful serving boards for girls who LOVE making their platters!
My favorite part of the entire weekend was the yoga class that my sister-in-law led! It was so intentional, peaceful, and sentimental to me. Being surrounded by so many of the people I love, taking the time to focus on our mental, spiritual, and physical health together was so meaningful.
Of course we made delicious platter boards to snack on while hanging out at the pool!
The perfect photo spots…EVERYWHERE! Like in front of this beautiful fireplace I was obsessed with.

The list of amenities with Stay With Style Scottsdale is endless. From all the hosting, serving, and cooking items you can think of, to fun pool floaties, to even a grill and 20 person outdoor table! Each room comes with cozy sheets, blankets, pillows and tons of extra towels. They even have a huge closet full of any items you could possibly need. Again, you cannot go wrong with staying with them. It is truly a luxury!
My girls planned so many fun food outings since I’m obsessed with all of the yummy choices in Scottsdale!
One night, we got all dressed up and of course I wore a veil (not my choice lol) and went to dinner at Postino in Kierland. If you love bruschetta like me…YOU HAVE TO GO HERE! You get a huge platter of bruschetta of your choice with so many delicious kinds to choose from. My personal favorites were the prosciutto with fig & mascarpone and ricotta with dates & pistachios! Afterwards, we walked around the shops in the Quarter and got served champagne in the Kendra Scott Store!
After dinner, the girls surprised me with a group wine & canvas painting night at Wine & Design!
My all time favorite restaurant in Scottsdale, Flower Child!
If you know me, you know I don’t leave Arizona without getting in at least one hike. Our house was close to so many of my favorite hikes including Pinnacle Peak! It is an easier hike, perfect for jogging or for enjoying conversation with friends as you look out to see some of the most beautiful homes and golf courses in the city. Since our trip was in August when AZ is the hottest, we had to get a head start on our hike at 5 am! It was still beautiful and enjoyable even in the intense heat!
GUYS! Our house was only five minutes away from Hillsong Church Scottsdale! This Sunday morning church experience was the perfect end to a weekend with some of my favorite people, celebrating the most holy covenant Michael and I would soon be entering in. I used to attend Hillsong when I lived in New York City and instantly fell in love with the church and its message. In fact, I even met one of my best friends there the very first time I ventured there on my own. I HIGHLY recommend taking your group to church here during your stay with Stay With Style Scottsdale! What could be more perfect than ending your bachelorette party with time of worship for our Savior for all he has done, with your friends and family?!
