Tyler and Ryan were married in Tyler’s hometown of Tucson, Arizona. They wanted to pay homage to her desert roots while keeping the wedding design itself classic and elegant. The ceremony was set against the beautiful backdrop of the Santa Catalina Mountains and desert landscape surrounding the Westin La Paloma. The ceremony was officiant by a dear friend of the groom. The ballroom was transformed with white drape and blush uplighting, soft and simple floral arrangements in white and blush and small gold embellishments. What really made this wedding was the people. The bride and groom’s number one priority was to really enjoy their family and friends. Their dear friend officiated the wedding; they fully embraced long, beautiful toasts by those that love them the most; their dance floor was packed until the very last moment. It was so clear how loved these two are and how excited their guests were to celebrate with them.

Spring

From the couple… When we were discussing where we would want to have our wedding, both of us agreed that the desert in either spring or fall would be perfect for us, because Shannon was born and raised in Tucson, AZ. We did not have to look long before we found the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch (TVR) – which is a dude ranch and western horseback riding property. It was striking to us how perfectly at home we felt out in this desolate area of the Saguaro National Desert and we fell deeper in love with each other as we fell in love with the Tanque Verde Ranch and all its inhabitants, we knew it was the place for us. As for the actually wedding, the entire weekend was about saying yes: to our commitment to one another, to our devotion to all of our friends and family, to celebration and fun, to challenges and conflict, to abundance and growth, and most of all, to love.

For us, our wedding was about meaningful ceremony, ritual, community and most of all, celebration. Every single component of our weekend was purposeful and reflective of our vibrant life we share together in western Massachusetts.

We hired Sam from Imoni Events as our wedding planner extraordinaire and it was, hands down, the best decision we made – other than the one to marry each other. We did a lot of shopping around for planners and assumed, as queer people, that we would need a planner from New York or LA who could both get our vision and taste and also treat us right as queer people getting married in Arizona. We immediately felt comfortable with Sam and the amazing partners she recommended for us!

The entire 16-month experience of working with her and her team of vendors was an absolute delight. With her help, we connected with the amazing Elyse Hall Photography, phenomenal floral designers Atelier de LaFleur and our wonderful stationer, Celebrations In Paper. Together, along with the exceptional event coordinators and staff at TVR, they completely captured our vision and brought our wildest dreams to life! We felt their passion and their talent erupted on the wedding day and after, with our stunning wedding photographs! In the end, our instinct to get married in the desert was the most perfect cosmic decision. We had the best weekend of our lives!

From Carl S. Miller Wedding Films… I’ve known the Bride, Noel, for a number of years and so I was ecstatic when she asked me to film her marriage to Dan. The day and preparations began in their new home in the historic barrio district of Tucson, Arizona. The architectural lines within were a visual delight, and I tried to incorporate aspects of their home as a metaphor for their relationship: new home, new marriage, new life together. Saguaro National Park provided a breathtaking vista of mountains and cacti as the backdrop for their Southwestern ceremony. Their event designer and florist, Atelier de LaFleur, did a phenomenal job with the chuppah and floral arrangements to provide an aesthetic and color palette to complement the desert landscape. The celebration continued at the Tucson Museum of Modern Art, where the festivities were started by Noel and Dan’s jaw-dropping tandem bicycle sparkler entrance. Now that’s original. Their film is designed to not only show the beauty and elegance of their day, but to highlight the many subtleties that make their relationship unique to them.
