This super sweet Tucson wedding is that kind of wedding you’ll arm wrestle to be a part of. Filled with heartfelt handmade touches, Megan and Kyle had the duo Geoff and Stacy from Lang Photographers to capture their day. We love their coffee favors, prettily packaged with a knot.
From the bride, Megan: When we first got engaged, I had thousands of ideas buzzing around in my head of what our wedding would be like. I knew it had to be romantic, with some aspect of vintage charm, and of course a few DIY projects to make it our own. When we selected our venue, a mansion built in 1898, our vision really came to fruition!
Our wedding was simple, romantic, and sparkly. I fell in love with a color palette that consisted of soft pinks, peaches, and a gold accent. We wanted everything to be neutral and soft. DIY projects can be daunting for a large wedding, so we chose a couple of projects we loved and focused on those — Pinwheels for the gazebo arch where the ceremony took place, burlap table squares with gold polka dots that my sweet grandmother hemmed for us, and our sacks of ground coffee for our guests to take as favors. My mom, grandmother, and bridesmaids were SO helpful with the process!
For any couple currently planning your wedding, remember that simple can often make the biggest statement. We decided to let our venues charm speak for itself, meaning the decorating we did was minimal! Most of all, enjoy the fun things you get to do together as fiancé and fiancée.
For our processional and recessional we reached out to a local string quartet. They played soft, classical medleys which really fit our overall aesthetic. Our first dance was to City and Colour’s “We Found Each Other in the Dark”…it was too perfect for words. I chose “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys to dance with my dad; he’s a huge Beach Boys fan! Kyle took it back to the 90’s for his mother/son dance and chose “God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You” by N*Sync. The rest of the night was filled with “club jams” which prompted some pretty crazy dancing.
