NATURAL DESERT ROMANCE WEDDING INSPIRATION

NATURAL DESERT ROMANCE WEDDING INSPIRATION

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. 

PLANNING FOR YOUR GUEST ACCOMMODATIONS

PLANNING FOR YOUR GUEST ACCOMMODATIONS

If you have any amount of guests traveling in from out-of-town for your wedding you will want to establish some room-blocks for them. Typically a room-block is a reservation of ten or more rooms at a group discounted rate and is usually considered a necessary courtesy for your guests.

ALLIE & SPENCER'S PARADISE VALLEY COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING

ALLIE & SPENCER'S PARADISE VALLEY COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING

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!

AN "OLD MCDONALD HAD A FARM" 2ND BIRTHDAY PARTY

AN "OLD MCDONALD HAD A FARM" 2ND BIRTHDAY PARTY

In case you haven’t noticed, I tend to get a little excited about planning my kids’ birthday parties. At one point in time (pre-babies) I found these types of celebrations to be silly and impractical, but momma-hood has definitely changed my perspective on that! When I started planning Easton’s second birthday party my intentions were to keep it simple while still staying true to my detail-loving heart, and I think we accomplished just that!

KRISTEN & OSCAR'S MARSALA WEDDING

KRISTEN & OSCAR'S MARSALA WEDDING

I first met Kristen and Oscar at their friend's New Year's Eve wedding a couple years ago - my how time flies! It's always such an honor to meet people through someone else's wedding party and continue on to plan their big day as well. Kristen and Oscar are truly a perfect match for one other. During our time together it was always fun watching them interact, as each has a tendency to balance the other out in the best of ways. They both enjoy a good glass of wine or beer together, which was incorporated as a subtle theme throughout their day.
