Gem Toned Garden Wedding in Arizona

Elegant Weddings

We’ll always love seeing a bit of gold, but we love it even more when it’s paired with bright gem toned colors. Today’s wedding from Gina Meola Photography, Outstanding Occasions, and AZ Petal Pusher has just the right mix of metallic and bright hues, and the icing on the cake has to be the lush floral design throughout the ceremony and reception!

From the wedding planners, Outstanding Occasions: Classic beauty with a modern twist took the day with a romantic ceremony floral design and bright reception color palette, as Alex and Jason celebrated their love at The Boulders, a Waldorf Astoria Resort in Scottsdale. The ceremony was adorned with breathtaking draped floral pieces, surrounded by a stunning floral altar runner. On either side of the altar stood pedestals with overflowing lush pastel roses.

After ceremony, guests made their way to a cocktail hour that was designed using unique and sophisticated pieces. The tables were decked with assorted vintage cobalt blue goblets with bright pink garden roses, ranunculus and dahlias, with a touch of greenery. As guests noshed on hors d’oeuvres and sipped signature cocktails, they were also invited to step in to the festive Self Portrait Station, and leave a fun photo and note behind for Alex and Jason. When it was time to make way to the reception, guests found their seating assignments by way of a large escort display featuring vintage gold ornate frames with beautiful fuchsia floral tucked throughout.

The reception was like entering a golden dream filled with pops of bright pink and orange florals. Low gold floral vases surrounded by textured votives and high gold candelabras filled with rich hydrangeas, roses and floating blooms alternated on each table. We loved creating an environment that combined the traditional, classic feel while bringing a modern touch through each place setting. To end the night, guests were treated to the most elegant s’mores display featuring gold stands with hanging crystals, and a gold gilded marshmallow display.

There are a few reasons why I love summertime, but this styled shoot from Samantha McFarlen, Bloomed Out Floral Design, and Champagne Wedding Coordination does a better job of summing up those reasons than I ever could. With a darling popsicle truck, bright colors, and some watercolor details, this shoot is getting me ready for the days of warmer weather ahead!

From the photographer, Samantha McFarlen: Summer beauty is captured in every frame at this gorgeous Seattle waterfront wedding venue! With the splashes of watercolor, aztec hints, lush florals & greenery, and the summer heat, these vibes can surely make every heart smile. If the Café Vitta Latte or Blueberry Lemonade Ice-Pops didn’t hit the spot, then the Grapefruit Rosemary Moscow Mule was sure to do the trick! The real showstopper was the attire – the modern cut bridal dress featuring the high neckline gave the keyhole open back a more dramatic reaction. And how perfect were those matching ombre bridesmaid’s dresses?! No detail went unnoticed, and guests even got to take home mini succulents as wedding favors! Calling this day a win-win, friends. Be sure to check out all of the vendors involved in creating this boho-chic masterpiece.

Al Fresco Bohemian Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Today’s wedding is so full of great ideas and details, you’ll definitely want to come back to it again and again. Onelove Photography, PS Plans, and Rosebud Floral Design brought Taylor and Grant’s wedding vision to reality with wooden details, heaps of greenery and romantic floral design, and images so gorgeous you’ll have to keep yourself from staring!

From the bride, Taylor: For our wedding day, Grant and I really just wanted to create a space where we could celebrate our love story with all the people who have meant so much to us on this journey to finding each other and HELLO getting married !! Yes, we wanted the decor to be fabulous and the photos to be pretty but really, at the end of the day, we just wanted to invite people into a joy dance with us over the new journey we were getting to start together. We aimed to intentionally create space for our guests to mingle with each other and mingle with US too. One of my favorite moments of the day was when, immediately following our first dance, the band BUSTED out into 3 or 4 more songs that had everybody on the dance floor with us shouting and celebrating before dinner even began. It was so surreal to be surrounded by so many that we loved in one space and break through the stuffiness and routine to just ENJOY the night – singing and laughing and hugging so many people who were there to cheer us on. That is something I will never forget.

We wanted everything about the day to feel really fresh and organic. I went with a design that was pretty “al fresco” with just a touch of bohemian. We utilized a lot of draping fabric and ivy garlands to make that happen – incorporating lanterns and candlelight surrounded by rosemary and lush greens. Then we threw the bohemian pops in with gold and lace fabric chargers, globes for our guestbook(s), and streaming fabric for our arch and dessert table. I loved playing with bistro lights and Edison bulbs to light the beauty that was already there – and we even decided to go with a “farm to table” concept for all of our food and beverages. It was SO fun to see how much our guests loved the unique hors d’oeuvres and buffet selections. Our caterer absolutely blew me away with what she created! Most of all, I love what the aesthetic invited people into – a day to kick off their shoes and enjoy celebrating with us and those around them!

Wedding planning can be stressful because, no matter who you are, so many worlds are colliding – family, friends, vision, cost. The one thing I would say to you, bride and groom to-be, is to hold on tight to what is most important to you as you plan – what YOU want to honor and what YOU really want your day to be about. Every decision that comes along can all of a sudden feel like it is THE deal breaker of your big day (and can have other opinions that go along with it). But Grant and I learned that you have to decide to hold on to the sweetness of the journey by coming back to your non-negotiables (having all the people you want there? amazing photography? killer stationery? great band?) and letting the other stuff go. And, at the end of the day, you are marrying the love of your life and your best friend. So the stuff that you missed? It’s not the point anyway. Grant and I enjoyed the process so much more when we stopped and took time to dream about our marriage together instead of just the wedding day. I PROMISE I PROMISE it’s worth it :) Our vendors were AMAZING and without them our day really would not have come together the way it did :) I think it is so important to hire a team of people who you can really trust as it was all of them in the end that created the space for our most special moments to happen!
