Today’s beautiful and romantic blue desert wedding shares the wedding day of Alicia and Jeff at Desert Botanical Garden. It’s clear why we wanted to share their wedding- the soft blue colors are a bit unique for desert weddings and we’re kind of dying over their alternative color choice! Plus, the couple kept their love for each other at the heart of everything they planned for their day and we pretty much adore that!

Alicia tells us how she chose her color palette: I went through several ideas for the colors, especially thinking about what would look best in a setting as unique as the DBG.  My maid of honor showed me the gorgeous blue color I eventually picked for the bridesmaid dresses, and the rest fell into place.

Romantic Blue Desert Wedding Flowers: Bouquets containing blue thistle, white ranunculus and greenery popped perfectly against the blue bridesmaid dresses

The bride described her wedding day as romantic, joyful, magical…we couldn’t agree more. Alicia’s nieces were the flower girls and they were absolutely adorable!

Groom Jeff is known for his crazy sock collection so of course he had his guys wear their own crazy socks on the wedding day!

Romantic Blue Desert Wedding Favorite Moment: Jeff and I both agree our favorite moment was the first look, which is probably what every couple says. But it’s true! There are so many nerves throughout the day but once you finally get to see each other, all the anxiety melts away to excitement to finally say your vows and spend your first evening together as husband and wife with your friends and family!

Isn’t this a gorgeous and private spot for a first look? Desert Botanical Garden is filled with perfect locations for photos.

Romantic Blue Desert Wedding Ceremony: Alicia and Jeff’s wedding ceremony took place at the amphitheater which is a beautiful location in the Garden; the bride and groom are framed by mesquite trees and due to the tiered theater style seating, all guests have a great view of the couple as they exchange vows.

It was also important to include our family in our wedding. My brother, Nate, officiated the ceremony, with all our siblings and their spouses in our wedding party. The flower girls were my nieces, and they stole the show in their fairy tale dresses.

Husband and wife- yay!

Romantic Blue Desert Wedding Reception: The reception began with cocktail hour at Eliot Patio and proceeded into dinner and dancing at Ullman Terrace; tables were dressed with grey linens and included soft blue napkins and sweet centerpieces that featured romantic flowers, candles, greenery, and succulents.

Jeff and I spent Valentine’s Day 2015 in Paris not long after we started dating. One of the many things sweethearts do in that very romantic city is to add a lock to the Ponts des Arts Bridge with your initials on it and throw the key in the Seine River. We have a photo of our lock in our home, and we knew we wanted to incorporate the lock and key theme into our big day. Our invitations, polaroid guest photo book, flower girls’ necklaces and favors all featured the theme from that special time in Paris.

Ullman Terrace is a popular spot for wedding receptions at DBG due to it’s scenic view (the Garden’s butte makes a stunning backdrop); the spacious outdoor tiered patio is surrounded by soft petal reflective lights and up-lit saguaros. For a couple who wants to celebrate their marriage and show off the best of our desert, this is certainly the place to do it!

We asked the couple if there were any surprises or things they would change about their day. Here’s what they said:  If only time could slow down!  The day went so fast! {We were} honestly surprised by how much we relied on our amazing wedding planners…if someone says you don’t need a wedding planner, they are wrong!

Kristina and Chad’s Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View
categories: fabulous reception sites, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, real weddings, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

elegant outdoor wedding with a view _Phoenix bride and groom_Sanctuary on Camelback_Jeff and Amber Photography

With their work schedules being busy at almost exactly opposite times of the year (Kristina is a teacher and Chad is a MLB pitcher), this lovely couple hired wedding planner Cara Morrison of A Day to Cherish Weddings to plan their elegant outdoor wedding with a view. The view was courtesy of the extraordinary Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa- Kristina and Chad knew as soon as they saw the gorgeous ceremony space, hip cocktail hour patio, and intimate ballroom that this was the place to exchange vows.

The couple used their vision of a wedding with rustic elegance to guide their wedding design choices; blush and ivory floral pieces added an element of romance while wooden accent pieces provided an outdoorsy feel.

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: For the outdoor ceremony, Kristina and Chad had their florist contruct a simple wooden arch and decorate it with flowing swags of white and blush flowers paired with greenery. Wooden stumps flanked either side of the arch and also served as bases for rustic candle lanterns that lined the rose petals dusted aisle.

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: Chad and I spent considerable time writing our vows to each other. It was worth every second and something I will always remember!

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: Kristina and Chad took full advantage of Sanctuary’s breathtaking desert landscape!

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: The reception was in the ballroom which boasts floor to ceiling windows- the effect is a stunning view of the mountains, Paradise Valley, and the city lights as the sun sets.

Our florist matched the blush rose tones of the linens and bridesmaid’s dresses with vases of staggered sizes, each with their own flower variety including ivory hydrangea, blush quicksand roses, Sahara roses and ivory majolica sweetheart roses. Gold pillar candleholders and votives accented the floral arrangements. The candles tied in perfectly with the gold-rimmed chargers and printed accents of the menus and favors on each plate.

Guests enjoyed a meal of Achiote Marinated Sea Bass , Grilled Corn and Chorizo Risotto, with Smoked Paprika and Lobster Butter Or Bacon-Wrapped Beef Tenderloin, Pancetta and Exotic Mushroom, Truffled Potato Cake with Cabernet Reduction Sauce- yum!

The sweetheart table was a pretty little setting for the couple to dine together for the first time as husband and wife and have the best view of their friends and family throughout the evening; the wooden decor elements were expertly incorporated into the otherwise elegantly decorated dining room.

Kristina recalls: Chad grew up in Texas and I am from Michigan. I had never heard of the southern tradition of a “groom’s cake” until Chad’s mother clued me into it. In the south, the groom gets his own wedding cake! For Chad I chose a chocolate Texas Tech cake decorated with strawberries.

A White and Gold Wedding in Arizona

White and Gold Wedding in Arizona _Phoenix Bride and Groom_Eyes2See Photography_The Wigwam

Natasha and Jeffery’s wedding weekend was all about fun from start to finish; the gals enjoying a bridal luncheon and salon time while the guys golfed, of course Saturday was the wedding day and a Sunday brunch wrapped up the weekend nicely. The couple definitely kept their guests busy while everyone gathered at the historic resort, The Wigwam, and they had the time of their lives. Fall in love with the resort and this sweet couple as we share their white and gold wedding in Arizona!

White and Gold Wedding in Arizona: The bridal party donned classic black bridesmaids dresses and tuxedos while the groom differentiated himself with a dapper white tuxedo.

White and Gold Wedding in Arizona: The couple’s ceremony took place in an enchanted setting- The Wigwam’s outdoor courtyard. Bride Natasha tells us: If I had to choose one moment that will forever stick out in my mind, it would be seeing my future husband standing at the altar for the first time. We hadn’t done a “first look” or taken photos beforehand so the anticipation had been building as what seemed like forever for all the guests to be seated. Finally walking down the aisle and seeing Jeff standing there, with a huge grin on his face, was an unforgettable moment.

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.

Intimate Backyard Wedding in Arizona _Phoenix Bride and Groom_Brittany LeSueur Photography

How would we describe Kellie and Jamie’s intimate backyard wedding in Arizona? Simple! It was a day of pure joy and easy love. Sounds pretty great, right?!  These two, who knew after 6 months of dating that they would be together forever, just seem like the kind of people who went with the flow on their wedding day because simply being there with their family and friends was all they needed. We kinda, OK, we COMPLETELY, love that!

Intimate Backyard Wedding in Arizona | Color Palette: The couple’s indigo,white, gold and pale pink color palette is stunning in the bride’s cousin’s backyard…enjoy the pretty!

One of our very favorite things about Kellie and Jamie’s wedding is the reaction of their guests as they each walked down the aisle- it’s a reflection of the celebratory mood of the day and we love that no one felt too inhibited to cheer.

Intimate Backyard Wedding in Arizona | Favorite Moment: If I had to choose just one it would have to be saying our vows and hearing all of our loved ones and family cheer for us. It was such a special moment in time for me and I will never forget it. Jamie told me that his favorite part of our wedding day was being able to have the event in such a personal location because it was my cousin’s backyard. We were so lucky to have such and intimate and beautiful place to host our special day.

Intimate Backyard Wedding in Arizona | Reception: The reception featured poolside feasting tables that included gold chargers, geometric shapes and blue accents. On our long wooden tables we used Shibori tie-dyed table runners. Gold geometric shapes were used for the candle holders as well as indigo and clear glass holders. Mermaid’s Flower Crown did a beautiful job with the roses and succulent center pieces.
