Lawn games and silly dancing. I spotted these two things in Nicole and Brian’s wedding and knew their wedding must be shared. Ok ok, there’s also a unique and dramatic ceremony site (Echo Canyon in Camelback Mountain. Yes, IN the canyon), beautiful desert plant floral designs, sweetness between the couple and their friends and family and lots of fun DIY touches but if I’m being honest, it was the games and dancing that drew me in!
3 words would to describe your relationship? Loving, Christ-centered, Comfortable
Something about you that we wouldn’t know from the pictures: We both love geocaching!
Can you believe that Nicole’s mom did most of the design and planning for the wedding? From the flowers to the brownie cake, she did it all… I’m in awe of her talent! Where did the couple get their inspiration for the colors and mood of their day? I’ll let Nicole explain: Picture the setting sun’s vibrant rays igniting the warm, earthen hues of the mountain’s rock…those were our oranges. We paired them with the soft, muted greens of the desert’s cacti and succulents. Nature is such a muse! As far as the rest of the wedding planning, we wanted it to feel very laid back and fun just like us! As a result, quite a few aspects of the wedding were as non-traditional as my wooden engagement/wedding ring. Brian had never used a lathe before, but he learned how to just so he could make me this unique and beautiful ring! Here’s our Save the Date video which documents the creation process:
The lawn games, created by Nicole’s dad, were just too fun- there was cornhole, jenga, and bocce ball complete with instructions. If I was a guest at this reception, I would never leave the lawn!
And then there was dancing- what a fun group!
Congratulations Nicole and Brian and thank you for sharing your day with us!
