    Romantic Scottsdale Wedding

    It doesn’t get more beautiful than a spring wedding in Arizona, and Scottdale’s stunning Sassi restaurant brings together the beauty of the desert with an Old World European feel. Anne and Keith’s intimate soiree is the epitome of sophistication. An outdoor wedding ceremony beneath the trees (with the most adorable of flower girls) led into a gorgeous reception with floral by Your Event Florist. A succulent theme echoed the beauty of the Southwest and was incorporated from bouquet to centerpieces, on the stationery from Celebrations in Paper, and even atop the lovely cake from Let Them Eat Cake. Every image from Melissa Jill Photography is perfection!

    Beach Inspiration in the South of Italy

    If we sit back and close our eyes, we can almost feel the ocean breeze flowing from these stunning images by Les Amis Photo. Puglia is a wild and romantic destination for Italian weddings, and this inspiration shoot designed by La Monique Eventi brings the setting to life. Soft peaches and pink in the flowers by Il Profumo dei Fiori evoke a tropical feel, and the tablescape gives a nod to the nautical surroundings with rope and seashells. Stationery with soft gray by Cut and Paste Lab is demure and refined. A gorgeous Couture Hayez gown brings a bohemian elegance, complete with a sideswept braid and neutral makeup by Ego Parrucchieri. Transport yourself to a windswept paradise in the gorgeous images from Les Amis Photo!
