Elegant Blue Ballroom Wedding

Lucas and Brooke were married on a spectacular spring day in Arizona at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort. After saying “I Do” at sunset on the resort’s Lagoon Lawn, guests moved into the Palomino Ballroom for an elegant reception. The theme was “Manicured Rustic”, and the reception was a veritable wonderland with candlelight and a mix of jaw-dropping centerpieces from The Flower Studio which evoked the feel of a secret garden. We adore the color palette of cobalt blue, peach and gold, with wood accents to complement the garden feel. Amsale bridesmaids dresses in assorted silhouettes flattered each of the maids, while Brooke is resplendent in a Martina Liona gown from Mariee BridalAshley Gain made sure the day ran without a hitch, and we are head over heels for the gorgeous images from Brushfire Photography!

Elegant English Garden Inspired Shoot

We are utterly and completely smitten with today’s ethereal inspiration shoot photographed by Michael & Carina Photography for their Little Workshop. The shoot is entitled “Rejuvenate” and beautiful simplicity reigns in the design from Wit Weddings. The gardens of Richmond’s Agecroft Hall—a Tudor manor house originally built in England—set the stage, with the colors of an English garden brought to life in stunning florals from White Magnolia Designs. The design focuses on effortless elegance, with spring hues of butter, peach, and apricot, the palette inspired by the hue of Himalayan salt, echoing the theme of rejuvenation. A gorgeous gossamer gown from Laure de Sagazan, wispy ribbon and delicate linen from Silk & Willow, and loose calligraphy from Stephanie Bobruska are all perfectly matched, bringing an air of sophistication and ease to the scene. We know you will be enchanted by the beautiful imagery from Michael & Carina Photography.

    Arizona Spring Wedding

    It doesn’t get more perfect than an Italian villa in the middle of the Arizona desert! Scottsdale’s Sassi restaurant was the setting for Danielle and Richard’s classic wedding, which combined the elegance of the venue with the desert setting for a unique and beautiful event. The couple wanted their intimate wedding to reflect their personalities and taste, and put their skills to work handcrafting items for their soiree. Danielle designed the wedding invitations and calligraphed the envelopes and favors, while Richard made the box for their wine box ceremony. Each guest received a succulent or cactus plant as a favor, perfect for their out of town guests, who were able to bring home a touch of Arizona. Flowers By Jodi created chic white and cream centerpieces of garden roses and hydrangea, adding sprigs of greenery to echo the venue’s ivied walls. We’re smitten with each thoughtful detail, captured by the wonderful Andrew Jade Photography!
