Tiffany and Sean’s wedding planning was no simple feat- they currently live in China, their families are from the East Coast, and they didn’t want a “regular wedding”. So what did they do? They went back to where they fell in love (Arizona), chose a location where the beauty of the Sonoran Desert would shine, picked a color palette of peach and gray to complement the desert landscape, and gathered a vendor team to help them make their wedding dreams come true!
One major bonus for the wedding guests and the couple themselves is that the Chihuly blown glass exhibit was on display at the time of the wedding- Desert Botanical Garden is one of the most spectacular places to see this stunning artwork and since Tiffany and Sean are admirers of the artist, it was all a bit serendipitous. They even had cupcakes with blown glass sugar flowers to mimic the art!
Our friends and family are very important to us and many of them participated in the ceremony. My brother and sister did a reading from a humorous children’s book called “Rosie and Michael” about two friends who will do anything for the other one. Sean’s two nieces served as flower/ring girls. Our friend, Mike Hall, officiated the ceremony. Since Sean is a musician, four of his friends were able to play in a brass quartet during our ceremony.
I love the sweet glances and funny expressions Tiffany and Sean share
Subtle nods to Arizona are found throughout- succulents in the floral designs, churros for dessert, and mariachis- but the couples’ love of travel was also featured in the escort cards and table names.
These are the blown glass sugar flower cupcakes- I can only imagine how much work went into creating these beauties!
Tiffany and Sean, thanks you for sharing your wedding day with us and congratulations!
