I can’t say I’ve ever dreamed of a desert-set wedding, but one look at this Scottsdale stunner from Jasmine Star and I instantly changed my tune. It’s a day where cactus mingles with delicate white florals and “rustic chic” is reinvented with an industrial-style spin. Pop to the gallery and don’t dare miss the film below from Serendipity Cinematography.

From Jasmine Star…Colleen and Mark wanted an intimate destination wedding and chose the perfect location in the gorgeous Pinnacle Peak Mountains of Arizona. The reception was held at the Proof restaurant at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale, Colleen wanted something fun & modern but comfortable with the southwest twist. This antique industrial decorated restaurant already went perfectly witch what Colleen was looking for, all she had to do was add her own personal elegant style. Colleen and Mark recited their vows under a large tree with hanging antique light bulbs to add to the vintage atmosphere. At the end of the ceremony was a mix of antique and desert inspiration. Rustic & elegant wood boxes with the white floral were wrapped in burlap with touches of succulents for the desert look. The antique look was shown through vintage lanterns.
Colleen & Mark had hints of white floral that added a sophisticated charm to their Wedding. The ceremony had simple but clean floral at each end of the row with tulips hanging in mason jars. At the end of the aisle were large wood boxes filled with white flowers and touches of succulents inspired by the Arizona desert. Colleen’s gorgeous white bouquet was a mix of garden roses, tulips, ranunculus with a burlap ribbon and a touch of lace to add in a rustic appearance. The intimate reception had antique wood boxes with floral including hydrangea, ranunculus and touches of pussy willow. There were some single flower vintage vases with tulips dispersed across the reception. A country band that gave the reception the cherry on top of the sundae for her southwest vision wedding kicked off the party. My absolute favorite part of this whole night was that it was ended with Colleen & Mark dancing alone soaking in every moment of their special day.

From Pinkerton Photography…Yesmina & Adam’s Desert Garden wedding was the perfect mix of gorgeous color & the simplicity of the desert – vibrant pinks & yellows set against the glowey green of the Botanical Garden & Herb Garden! Their aim was an intimate gathering for only their closest friends & family, most of whom would travel from afar, so accentuating Arizona’s gorgeous landscape seemed like the perfect idea. The cacti centerpieces, vibrant bouquets, touches of gold, and the gorgeous herb garden make up some of their lovely details. The day itself was as relaxed as can be, and I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard as I did with this crew. And I certainly have never before had a bride get down on her hands & knees (in her dress) to pick cacti spines out of my foot!! Excited to share this very unique day with you!
