John and Emera’s rustic chic wedding in downtown Phoenix was pure romance- we’re pretty sure John wanted to kiss Emera alllll day long (so sweet) and the couple created a day that really reflected them as a couple and the things that are special about their relationship.

What was most important to you two as you planned your wedding?
It was SO important for our wedding to be a reflection of our relationship- which is why we had so many DIY projects, family pictures, cootie catchers, etc. Additionally, John’s grandfather passed away a week before our wedding so we wanted to make sure we celebrated his life throughout our wedding. We displayed his Grandparents’ cake cutting pictures on our cake table and let the bartenders know that we reserved a special bottle of scotch in case our guests wanted to toast to his life.
 
Rustic Chic Wedding Details: Elements most remembered by our guests are DIY’d – our glittered chargers, floating dream catchers as our ceremony backdrop, and homemade cootie catchers for our programs (folded by my very patient, now husband).

Favorite moment of the day:  There were so many but if I had to choose just one, it would be cocktail hour. While our guests indulged in bites and drinks, my new husband and I stole a few minutes to ourselves in the Ceremony room. We got to talk and eat privately before our guests were ushered in. They say your wedding flies by so we are fortunate to be able spend time alone before the celebration!

Rustic Chic Wedding Details: John and Emera blended gold touches with feather details as well as soft pastel florals with bright red pops of color. The gorgeous cakes were displayed on a vintage desk topped with pictures from wedding cake moments in John’s family as well as vintage crystal cake plates and lush floral designs. The gold foil LOVE balloons add a touch of chic!

Rustic Chic Wedding Details: Vintage door knobs were the base of the table number holders- metal prongs added to the base held the table numbers in place; Emera and John DIY’d the gold chargers and we really love how they add sparkle to the slightly rustic feasting style tables.

Rustic Chic Wedding Details: The Midnight Snack bags are homemade oatmeal cookies John’s mom and sister made. The recipe is an old family recipe from John’s Nana. They grew up with this delicious snack and in line with all of the other personalized details of our wedding, we thought it would be great to share this treat with our guests.
