Paradise Valley Wedding Inspiration
When you’ve got two gorgeous gowns, a jaw-dropping ceremony stage, impeccable floral design from The Flower Studio, and succulents galore, you’ve got one stylish shoot we just can’t pass up. With Amy & Jordan Photography behind the camera and Imoni Events tackling all the design elements, how could we?
From the event designer, Imoni Events: “Something Old, Something New” was inspired by the idea of the gorgeous Madison James gowns set again rich fabrics, organic florals, natural elements and a hint of structure and metals. Pairing the old and the new created a very intricate landscape for this styled shoot. For the bridal florals we used a hand tied bouquet featuring Amnesia roses, champagne quicksand roses, ivory spray roses, white scabiosa, and scabiosa pods. For the ceremony space we used an incredibly romantic chuppah adorned with custom gauze flax-colored fabric panels, hand-carved weathered wood Geodesic pendant lights and asymmetrical design of lush floral with large succulent details. Staging this inspiration shoot at sunset amped up the romance to another level. The bride and groom were accented by the glow of the hanging lanterns!
Down the aisle, we wanted an eclectic feel and also to incorporate subtle blue tones against the natural lawn so we used oversized blue recycled glass vases with Dusty Miller foliage, roses, hydrangea, and vintage french Cane Back chairs. For the reception dinner space. We wanted to continue with that old meets new vibe and used a geo-printed linen from La a Tavola with Florentine wood candlesticks, multiple glass geodesic terrariums with Blue Rose echeveria succulents. Our paper products were subtle yet extremely detailed and handcrafted. Page and Mason created clever hanging place cards to accentuate the gorgeous cane back chairs and add an element of surprise. For the cake, we really wanted to showcase the geo print from the La Tavola Linen on the reception table, so Ruze Cake House created a gorgeous fondant cake that mirrored the print perfectly! From beginning to end, it was absolutely breathtaking.
