Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… the old wedding saying really rings true for this adorably sweet Arizona wedding! Hayley and Brett took their vintage theme and injected it with modern, new design elements. Their green and blue color scheme is simple and fresh against that Arizona background. Thanks so much to Sloan Photographers for sending it over!
From the lovely bride, Hayley. I’ve always wanted to have a backyard reception. The first time I went to Brett’s grandparents’ house in Mesa, AZ I thought to myself, if we get married this is where we are going to have it at! It was perfect. They have a huge open yard surrounded by orange groves.
We wanted our wedding to be colorful, vintage, open, intimate, and unique. My colors were ivory, avocado green and a bright royal blue… but we really just had a ton of colors and different shades with accents. I painted my head tables and a couple dressers bright colors to match the decor.
Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Just have fun with it and don’t get too stressed because somehow it all comes together last minute! Especially when you have people helping you! Give assignments to people, like family and bridesmaids, so you aren’t trying to do everything yourself.
