The backdrop of the DC Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona, is a stunning landscape for Catherine and Michael’s wedding, and we couldn’t love these photos from Carrie Patterson Fine Art Weddings any more! Sophisticated black and khaki monogrammed invitations set the tone for a formal but fun day, with bridesmaids carrying deep rose bouquets that complemented shoes of the same color against sleek taupe dresses. Catherine carried an unexpected and pretty bouquet of blue hydrangeas as she floated down the aisle in a strapless gown that starts simply at the top before giving way to a full ruffled skirt. For the reception, a stone patio covered in strung lights is a romantic spot for dinner and dancing. More hydrangeas and roses mix for bold centerpieces on the tables. We love the glamour and sophistication of this day with the desert that’s dotted with cactus and mountains!
