Rachel and David’s spring wedding in the desert was one gorgeous affair! The couple, whose guests were mostly from out of town, planned a wedding with the desert in mind including a pretty color palette of copper and rose gold; succulents, paired with large pink peonies and peach roses, were everywhere—as it should be when planning a wedding in Arizona! Enjoy their perfect day at El Chorro, in the heart of Paradise Valley:

Spring Wedding in the Desert | Thoughtful Details: Rachel and David’s wedding had so many sweet and thoughtful touches. From David surprising Rachel with a London blue Topaz ring (the couple intends for it to become a family heirloom), to the locket that first belonged to David’s great-great grandfather that was presented to David by his brother/best man during a toast, to Rachel using her great-grandmother’s handbag, the couple focused on family and tradition in the most beautiful ways.

Spring Wedding in the Desert | Favorite Moment: Seeing each other for the first time was our favorite memory as a couple (we did our first look prior to the ceremony). Walking down the aisle with my father was also a very special moment and the most emotional for me.

Spring Wedding in the Desert | The Ceremony: The ceremony took place in El Chorro’s Herb Garden—a sweet and intimate place to exchange vows. Rachel and David planned a “desert chic garden party” wedding so the atmosphere was a perfect fit; rose petals lined the aisle, greenery was draped across the last row of chairs, saguaro cactus skeletons framed the altar, and an artful design of roses, succulents, and cacti finished off the look.

Rachel recalls: I love cacti and succulents and wanted both incorporated into soft, romantic floral arrangements along with my favorite flowers: peonies, ranunculus, and David Austin roses. The desert sunset was the inspiration for our wedding colors, and blush became the focal color along with rose gold and copper accents.

Spring Wedding in the Desert | Cocktail Hour: Guests enjoyed prickly pear margaritas and contemporary music during cocktail hour then headed to the South Lawn for a family style Southern-inspired dinner.

Spring Wedding in the Desert |  The Reception: The reception was at El Chorro’s South Lawn—the venue provides a beautiful space for intimate weddings with the most spectacular views of Mummy Mountain. We love Rachel’s description of the table: shimmery blush linens, antique pink glassware, copper and rose gold accents (provided by the chairs), chargers, and flatware, and the beautiful greenery with soft flowers and candles down the center all took my breath away. The antique furniture located at the outdoor fireplaces was so elegant and inviting to our guests to sit together and socialize throughout the evening.

Spring Wedding in the Desert | The Sugar: Rachel and David’s adoration for the desert extended to their choice of cake and sweets as well! Cactus themed sugar cookies and mini-cupcakes flanked the almond strawberry and pink velvet half-dressed wedding cake that also bore a prickly pear cactus pad.

Spring Wedding in the Desert | Vendor Love: A big reason I chose El Chorro was because of Lindsey Rendon, their event sales manager. She is just lovely and so accommodating. I had a great experience touring the venue with her and loved all the outdoor space. El Chorro has beautiful landscaping and desert terrain, which is exactly what we wanted. A Day to Cherish is one of El Chorro’s preferred vendors, and I read great reviews online. After speaking with Stephanie over the telephone, I knew she was the right person for the job. She is just so sweet, easy going, and fun to work with. She and Lindsey were both a godsend.

Guests enjoyed dancing until the wee hours in the Classroom Bar that is an extension of the South Lawn area at the venue; florist Butterfly Petals softened the western decor and adorned the taxidermy with flower crowns (so clever!).

Romantic Blue, Gold and Ivory Wedding
categories: bridal fashions, floral inspiration, real weddings, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

romantic blue, gold and ivory wedding _ Phoenix Bride and Groom wedding magazine_Jenn Wagner Studio_Arizona Wedding

It was all about the love at Elizabeth and Chris’ romantic blue, gold and ivory wedding! The beautiful couple kept their appreciation for each other and their families at the center of their planning and their wedding day ended up being a gorgeous event that was full of love and happiness—just how we like it!

Elizabeth recalls: I wanted to pick a color pallet that complimented the venue and added some glamour to the day! Navy is a timeless wedding color and gold was the perfect pop of glam to accompany it. The idea of the burgundy accents in the floral arrangements came from Kevin Reed at Your Event Florist, it was the perfect additional for a fall wedding. I was very much about putting our stamp on the day, so I was so happy Your Event Florist found another way to do that. It really made the arrangements one-of-a-kind and the burgundy dahlias were simply stunning.

Romantic Blue, Gold and Ivory Wedding | Favorite Moment: We both agree that our favorite moment of the day was our first look. I was reluctant to do one at first, wanting to uphold tradition but our photographer, Jenn convinced me otherwise and she was SO right! When Chris finally turned around and we locked eyes, it was like the rest of the world faded away. Any nerves we had disappeared and everything just felt perfect. 

Romantic Blue, Gold and Ivory Wedding | The Dress: My dress was an A-line gown made by Pronovias, purchased from Schaffer’s. I brought my mom, sister and best friend along to go dress shopping with me. My mom was actually the one who picked out the gown I ended up wearing, I wasn’t sure about it at first because it wasn’t white. As soon as I put it on, I fell in love. I was in awe of all the detail of the Swarovski crystals and the pinkish color of the tulle overlay. It wowed everyone in the room. But I’m a cautious person, so I decided to keep looking. We went to another bridal store, where I tried on more dresses, including a mermaid gown that my mom and sister fell in love with. There was a lot of pressure from them to pick it but the other was still in the back of my mind. I realized that the Pronovias dress was the one and went back to purchase it that night just as they were closing!

Romantic Blue, Gold and Ivory Wedding | The Flowers: Floral was one of the most important aspects of our big day. Kevin Reed, Your Event Florist owner, was remarkable in taking our vision and turning it into a reality. They custom designed my bouquet with Polo Roses, Lisianthus, Ranunculus, and Dahlias then finished it with Bay Leaves, it was perfection.

Romantic Blue, Gold and Ivory Wedding | The Ceremony: Elizabeth and Chris wed in an unplugged ceremony under a lushly decorated wrought iron arch; eucalyptus garland lined the aisle and wine barrels placed at the beginning of the aisle were topped with overflowing floral arrangements. Elizabeth said the ceremony decor took her breath away!

The biggest surprise of the day came from our 2 year old flower girl, Peyton! After she walked down the aisle with our ring bearer, she went to sit with her parents and decided that it was time to take off her dress. I saw, out of the corner of my eye, a naked Peyton, happy as can be, at the beginning of our ceremony. It was so hard not to laugh!

Romantic Blue, Gold and Ivory Wedding | The Reception: Chris and Elizabeth stole away for photos while guests proceeded into the reception; the evening was filled with thoughtful touches from a “Generations of Love” display to a heartfelt donation in lieu of favors.

romantic blue, gold and ivory wedding _ Phoenix Bride and Groom wedding magazine_Jenn Wagner Studio_Arizona Wedding

Chris is a HUGE car buff and works for Barrett Jackson but since he was little, his passion has always been classic cars. For the escort card table, we had a valet board where each of our guests received a vintage car key with their car for the night. The tables were named after his favorite classic cars with a license plate.

Family is very important to us and we wanted to honor them with a Generations of Love tribute. We compiled wedding day photographs from our parents and grandparents to display. It warmed many hearts and brought happy tears to both of our families.

We love it when couples incorporate the things that are important to them and Elizabeth and Chris did just that—one example is this table that celebrates their relationship along with their passion for two dog rescues in Arizona: Paw it Forward Husky Rescue and AZ Happy Tails.

Romantic Blue, Gold and Ivory Wedding | The Sugar: Elizabeth and Chris opted for a decadent dessert table that included cake, chocolates, mini pastries and watermelon.

Romantic Blue, Gold and Ivory Wedding : Before our sparkler exit, Chris & I wanted a final dance, a moment to take it all in before the night ended. While everyone lined up outside and prepared for the big moment, we stayed back. “The Only One” by Charles Kelly began to play, and we danced alone in a giant empty room, utterly elated and in love. It was one of my favorite moments from the night.

One thing I would change would be to have hired a videographer for the day! I will cherish our photographers forever, but the chance to hear Chris’ vows again or getting to see my mom walk down the aisle, would have been well worth the investment.

Everyone told us it would be the best day of our lives and it was. To have so many people there, surrounding us with love was simply wonderful.

Elizabeth and Chris, congratulations and thank you for sharing your romantic blue, gold and ivory wedding with us!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration | Arizona Wedding Inspiration
categories: bridal fashions, cakes and sweets, fabulous reception sites, favor and gift ideas, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, photography, real weddings, reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration, what's hot in rentals

Lavender wasn’t supposed to be a big color for weddings this year but this pretty purple hue is making a statement regardless! We think we know why lavender is a popular choice for couples planning their weddings: it’s purple (which is always in style for weddings) without being “too purple” and it conveys a delicate prettiness that’s appropriate for any wedding. From backyard get-togethers to grand ballrooms, lavender is lovely!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration: A color palette that includes lavender and other bright shades makes for some pretty gorgeous wedding attire. This bridal party’s attire is anything but boring thanks to the varied shades of purple!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration: Escort/place cards get a touch of lavender- they hint at what’s to come. And pretty much any stationery piece can include the light purple hue- table numbers, menus, signature cocktail signs,etc.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type | Schaffer’s Bridal
categories: bridal fashions, Tips and Advice, Wedding Inspiration

Elite Circle bridal shop Schaffer’s Bridal wrote a blog about how to shop for wedding dresses by body type and we are thrilled to share this valuable information with you!

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: Schaffer’s says for women with hourglass figures, form fitting dresses help enhance their curves best. Mermaid and fit-and-flare styles easily come to mind, but don’t forget about wedding dresses that have exaggerated features like a low drop waist or low backs.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: If you’re a woman with a petite body type you will want to look for types of wedding dresses that create the illusion of a long torso, and elongate your legs. Keep it simple, any detailing should be small and limited to the bodice.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: When it comes to tall and thin body types, keep in mind one word: simple. The more simplistic the dress, the less your body is lost in the dress.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: For apple shaped women you want to find a wedding dress that will draw attention upwards and skirts that flow out in an A-line fashion to evenly portray you proportions in the most flattering way.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: When it comes to a pear shaped body type, you want to look for dresses that highlight the narrowness of your mid-section with either while flowing down in an A formation or fit-and-flare silhouette.

Wedding Dresses by Body Type _Schaffers Bridal_Phoenix Bride and Groom

Wedding Dresses by Body Type: It’s up to you whether you want to show off your figure or seek more coverage. You can either create curves with a dropped waist or mermaid style, or you can find more coverage in an A-line or empire dress.
