Real Arizona Wedding: Daniela and Matthew
categories: fabulous reception sites, real weddings

I love to get my hands on a pretty, colorful, desert inspired wedding and that’s just what Daniela and Matthew’s Desert Botanical Gardens wedding was. The couple was hands on with the details and brought touches of their cultures to their wedding day; they chose the venue for it’s lush desert scenery (plus, Matthew is a geologist so it’s kind of a perfect match!).

Gorgeous girls

Gorgeous bouquets!

This is one of my favorite pictures

Are you kidding me with this cake? The succulents and simple frosting design are perfection!

What a cool guest book idea: We chose to use rocks we collected as our “guest book”. Guests wrote wishes on them and we plan on incorporating them into our garden.

One of my favorite elements from the wedding is how the tables were decorated and the subtle way Daniela and Matthew incorporated their culture into them. Daniela explains how they came together: We designed our centerpieces using succulents from a local nursery and rock samples from our own and our friend’s collections. Matt is a geologist so each centerpiece had a rock which then gave the table its name…The favors were traditional ceramic bowls that I brought from Chile, filled with Italian candy.  It was a little token from both of our cultures. 

Congratulations Daniela and Matthew and thank you for sharing your day with us!
