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!).

Monochromatic White Wedding in Arizona

Corey and Scott are a dream couple who planned the most beautiful wedding at El Chorro, right in the heart of Paradise Valley. The day was floral filled and love soaked, exactly how we like weddings to be, and it shows just how incredibly gorgeous a monochromatic white wedding in Arizona can be!

Monochromatic White Wedding in Arizona: The girls had a “Bubbly Bar” as they were getting ready- this is such a fun idea!

monochromatic-white-wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_el-chorro-real Arizona wedding monochromatic-white-wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_el-chorro-real Arizona wedding

Love Sweet Love: We asked Corey about the book that brought her to tears and we learned that Scott is one of the sweetest grooms EVER…Scott had saved every single card I had ever given him in our relationship. He used them all to walk through the story of our relationship and gave it to me as a gift/scrapbook on our wedding day.

Favorite Moment: My favorite moment of the entire day was our first look. The intimate setting, the anticipation, and the overwhelming feeling of emotion you get from seeing your husband for the first time is unlike any moment you experience the entire day.

Monochromatic White Wedding Ceremony: The ceremony was on the Wedding Lawn and the stunning views of Camelback framed the couple perfectly as they said their I do’s. As wedding planner Victoria Canada explains, the floral was nicknamed the “hug” because the floral piece had a rounded effect. In essence it felt like they were being hugged with flowers.

Their faces say it all!

Monochromatic White Wedding Cocktail Hour: Cocktail hour showcased the white “beachy desert” theme Corey wanted for the day- glass vases, pretty white floral arrangements, elegant white linens and silver and wood accents brought it all together.

Monochromatic White Wedding Reception: The reception was the perfect combination of elegant & glamorous and bright & airy; chandeliers and floral pieces were hung overhead complementing the soft pink drape that made for an intimate atmosphere.

The Venue: As soon as we saw the venue we knew it was absolutely us…the cocktail hour {venue}, market street lights and rustic features had us sold- not to mention the service was absolutely incredible. We wanted an intimate setting where we would treasure our photos for years to come and a venue that we would enjoy every second with our guests- El Chorro made that an easy decision.

A Dream Come True: We wanted our guests to be comfortable, enjoy great food and drinks, and dance all night…Victoria Canada provided just that and more and the compliment that we received all night was “you look so relaxed”, exactly what we hoped our guests would say! The whole day came and went as if it were a dream, our only wish was we could do it all over again.

El Chorro’s famous sticky buns were the perfect end late night takeaway!

The Wedding Planner: We wanted the best and we wanted someone who would take the time to get to know is as a couple and make our day memorable and special. We loved absolutely every minute working with Victoria and her team. There was no detail overlooked and there was absolutely every detail thought of. She allowed us the entire week(!) to just focus on each other and everyone who was a part of our special day instead of the stress that could come with a wedding.

Jessica and Michael’s sparkly pink and purple wedding in Arizona features a beautiful and vibrant color palette that makes this wedding a stand out- the celebration began on the lawn of DC Ranch Country Club and ended in the glowing and intimate courtyard.

Aren’t these bridesmaids dresses gorgeous? We just love how they are wearing different colors of the same dress.

Sparkly Pink and Purple Wedding in Arizona: The ceremony lawn was framed by towering crystal candelabra atop mirrored boxes; the orchids and roses were arranged in lush bouquets that popped against the desert landscape; flower petals lining the aisle softened the look and a wall of greenery provided privacy.

Kaila and Kyle’s Glam DIY Wedding at Sassi
categories: entertainment, fabulous reception sites, floral inspiration, real weddings, reception ideas, Scottsdale Weddings, Wedding Inspiration

glam diy wedding_Phoenix Bride and Groom_Sassi_Arizona Wedding

Kaila and Kyle (seriously, such a gorgeous couple) said “I DO” at the stunning Sassi in North Scottsdale among dear friends and family. We’re calling their wedding a Glam DIY Wedding because while they decided not to hire a wedding planner, they still had gorgeous professional looking details; highlights include luscious coral peonies, beautifully hand-painted wooden signs and pops of shimmering gold.

Those bouquets!

A Glam DIY Wedding Ceremony: The desert venue doesn’t disappoint when it comes to intimate moments, picturesque views, delicious food and beautiful photo ops…the centerpiece of Kaila and Kyle’s ceremony was an arch complete with lush floral and hanging crystals that framed the couples nuptials perfectly.

glam diy wedding_Phoenix Bride and Groom_Sassi_Arizona Wedding (8)

Kaila recalls: The day of our wedding was supposed to have consistent rain from morning until evening. While we were getting ready there was thunder and severe rain. When we finally arrived at the venue, my bridal party and I realized we forgot my wedding dress at the hotel. Omg! However, we all just kept rolling with the punches. By the time the wedding started the sun actually came out…we had the most beautiful outdoor ceremony and I even remember hummingbirds flying around.

Our favorite part of the wedding was seeing each other for the first time. We had debated if we wanted to do a first look and I’m so glad we didn’t. There was something about being traditional that made it very special when I walked down the isle. We were both so happy to see one another.

A Glam DIY Wedding Reception: We had a clear vision of how we wanted everything to look and feel. This made it easier for us to focus our time on the details. By spending time on details and special touches our personalities were able to shine through.

Photos from Kaila and Kyle’s parents’ houses were placed on the mantle in the private Sassi room which added a very comforting vibe; regarding dinner, Kaila tells us, “Our menu was three courses and consisted of an antipasto salad, hand rolled cavatelli pasta with short rib, and seasonal white fish and filet mignon. It was important for us to have amazing food and Sassi definitely delivered. We had many of our guest comment on how delicious the food was!”
