For years I have driven by a particular home here in Phoenix and every time I’d pass by I would tell my husband how in love I was with the property. Everything from the tree-lined drive to the picturesque field out front to the beautiful home itself had my heart. You can image how excited I was to receive an inquiry one day about planning a wedding for one of the daughters who grew up in that same house and wanted to get married there at home. What I didn’t expect was how much more I’d fall in love with this couple and their family over the course of six months of planning along side them.
About a year ago I decided to purchase a ticket to LVL Academy and travel out to Southern California for this wonderful wedding planner workshop. Although I already had a handful of experience under my belt running Wild One Events, I have always been a big believer in continued education and maintaining a mindset that I am never done learning. So with an excited attitude and eager mind I headed out for three days of full immersion in all things wedding planning!
Jen and Jake traveled all the way from the Pacific Northwest to host their intimate destination wedding at El Chorro alongside their closest friends and family. The two of them were some of the friendliest, most laid-back, and all around fun-loving people I have ever had the pleasure of working with, and their chic outdoor wedding spoke to both their style and personality.
It's not very often I show only floral design related work here on the blog, but I am so excited to share these images by Ashley Largesse from the styled shoot she planned for the Showit United Conference. Showit is an annual photography conference held here in Phoenix, Arizona, and people travel in from all over to attend. Ashley had the opportunity to teach a styled shoot to a group of attendees, and when she reached out to me to provide the floral work for her "Natural Desert Romance" concept I was beyond excited. Below are some images from the wonderful collaboration.
Allie and Spencer had a beautiful spring wedding at Paradise Valley Country Club this past April, captured perfectly by Andrew Jade Photography. I was lucky enough to work with Allie in the final months of planning to help her wrap up the many details that went into her and Spencer's big day! The love was truly felt all around these two, whether it be from their twenty three wedding party members (Yes, you read that number correctly!), or from the multitude of family and friends who joined in on the celebration. This wedding was quite the party and definitely filled with an abundance of love and joy!
