From Charity Maurer PhotographyIn a ceremony focused on their shared love of family and friends, Tara and Deon tied the knot in Scottsdale, AZ at the exclusive Sassi Restaurant. Originally from Michigan, this sweet couple met at work and the rest is history. With their palette of soft grays, blushes, and shades of mint, this gorgeous wedding created a beautiful contrast against the rugged boulders of the Arizona desert. In addition to being a delight to the eyes, this wedding also warmed the heart. Rarely does an entire family demonstrate such love for one another on a day as stressful as a wedding can be, but this family surrounded one another with happiness and support. It made this event truly inspiring to witness, and we know that the bride, groom, family, and their invited guests will cherish the memories for years to come.

Bright Floral Touches + Modern Design Make This Colorful Tucson Wedding

Okay, okay, I know I went a little crazy with the inspiration boards from this Tucson wedding, but when you take a look below and in The Vault, you’ll see why. Elyse Hall Photography just captured so much pretty, like the Bride’s engagement ring (crafted from a Wooly Mammoth fossil!) and the bright blooms. You’ll see — Rackel Gehlsen Weddings & Events created a desert dream. And I never want to wake up.

From Rackel Gehlsen Weddings & EventsNicole is a Tucson native, and wanted to share her beloved hometown with all of her family and friends. She wanted the outdoor elements of the desert beauty with bright florals and touches of modern décor. Now that she lives in New York, we created a chic lounge for the dancing, featuring Wayne Foster Entertainment. Nicole also LOVES science so her ring was actually made of a Woolly Mammoth Fossil. It was important to her to use lots of Natural elements to achieve the feeling we also used lots of Geodes and Natural Gem stones to bring her LOVE for Nature to the night. Nicole is very talented all the paper watercolor art was created by Nicole herself. So great. I loved all the natural touches with leather wrapping around the invitations.

We surprised Nicole, Jon and their guest with Fireworks right cute the cake, it was a magical element. Wayne Foster Entertainment for the Afterglow Party. Frostings Event Design Rentals created a chic New York 1920’s inspired nightclub with several vignettes of specialty décor.

Bistro lighting and amber up lighting throughout the perimeter with Mexican Pin Stars, farm tables mixed in with round tables dressed in natural birch desert textures, Napa chairs at the guest tables, and mirrored boxes, a variety of geodes, and different heights of floating candles to illuminate the cascading floral.

Color palette was natural desert birch and elegant turquoise. The style of wedding flowers was a loose and organic mix of garden roses, spray roses, ranunculus, poppies, scabiosa, in shades of coral, hot pink, with an accent of aqua toned succulents and coordinating whimsical foliages.

Melissa and David originally planned a destination wedding, but these two scrapped everything when their family needed the date pushed UP! In less than a month (you read right!) Melissa put together a day that looked so perfect you’d swear she spent a year planning. From the intricate Ketubah to the bride’s vintage fur handbag, Charity Maurer Photography captured it all to share in The Vault!

From Charity Maurer PhotographyMelissa and David share so much in common, their culture, their faith, and their love of family. Originally planning a destination wedding, these two scrapped everything when their family needed the date pushed up by over half a year! In less than a month Melissa put together a day that looked so perfect you’d swear she spent a year planning. In the shade of iconic Camelback Mountain, these two were wed at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa, in Phoenix, Arizona. Combining their rich cultural heritage and their love of celebration, the details of the day were perfectly curated: from the intricate Ketubah to the bride’s vintage fur handbag, these two lovebirds thought of everything. But at the end of the day, amidst all the beauty and style, Melissa and David’s love was the most memorable. From the moments captured in their first look to their first dance as husband and wife, these two share a deep bond, and it was an honor to capture their decision to make it last forever.
