This shoot feels so beyond words for me. The details are delicate and romantic. The cloudy sky lends an almost dreamlike light to every shot and my talented friend Brandy outdid herself with the styling. It’s the kind of wedding inspiration that makes me want to speak to you only in love poems. So rather than trying to describe to you all of the magic that is happening here, I’m going to let you take it all in for yourself. This is one of our favorite shoots of the year and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today.
Something you might not know is that Arizona is full of some of the most amazing outdoor wedding venues. Whether you are looking for the classic desert landscape, a forest lush with foliage, or a tuscan-inspired olive farm, we've got you covered. A few years ago we got to create wild, garden inspired floral designs for this shoot at the Queen Creek Olive Mill and it is still one of my favorites.
This bouquet featured structural foliage dotted with soft, peachy ranunculus. I love the way the color pops without feeling too bold and how the arrangements pull the scenery together with the accenting foliage. This design is the ultimate understated look and pairing it with perfectly wrinkled linen and mixed metals makes for a pairing of luxe and organic.
Did you know that the reason our a la carte menu exists is because I LOVE couples that elope? As Hoot & Holler grew up over the years, I realized that I desperately missed being part of those dreamy, intimate elopements so, I created the a la carte option. If you choose a full bouquet for yourself, a boutonniere for your sweetie (or two bouquets or two boutonnieres!), and add in a little centerpiece or a bit of garland, you've got all the decor you need for a dreamy ceremony wherever you choose to say "I do".
This shoot encompasses all the things I love the most in an elopement. Brandy created the dreamiest tablescape for a dinner and drink in the desert air for this inspiration shoot and it's giving me liiiife. Planning your own desert elopement? We'd love to help you flower your day. Drop us a line and we'll get started!
