From Ashley Gain WeddingsLove when pure, like Angela & Peter’s, is authentically organic and their wedding reflected just that. On a practically perfect October morning in Phoenix, Arizona the couple got married at Desert Botanical Garden. The ceremony was held outdoors in the Amphitheater. Guests sat in the built-in “theater” seating facing the arch where the couple said their vows. As a backdrop to the I dos was a cactus garden, an authentic reflection of the beautiful Sonoran Desert.

Angela and Peter wanted their guests to be a part of something more than just their wedding day, to them being a part of the Arizona landscape the place they were both born and raised was their inspiration. They wanted to reflect their natural love for each other in the place that felt so naturally “home” to their hearts.

The reception set in the indoor-meets-outdoor Binns Wildflower Pavillion welcomed in an open-air feeling with the majestic Papago buttes setting the scene in the background. The high ceiling pavilion surrounded guests giving them an intimate setting in the middle of the desert. Full of natural light this reception setting was the perfect way for the couple and their guests to take in an Arizona day. The succulents from the centerpieces on Angela & Peter’s day have since been planted in various guest’s pots around the country and growing strong. Now their perfect wedding flowers remind us every day how love can continue to grow!
