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 & Events…Nicole 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.
