Holly & Kori's Late Summer Sedona Wedding

We LOVE working in Sedona. Love it. Those red rocks are BREATHTAKING and to be honest, we can't get enough of that view. I also think that the energy in Sedona sets the perfect stage for a happy, dreamy wedding day.

Last September, Holly & Kori tied the knot among the red rocks then celebrated their new marriage at Tlaquepaque. Their day had all the right desert touches alongside a beautiful, upscale design details. It's a wedding we've been dying to share and I can't wait to walk you through all the beauty today!!

Let's start by talking about flower crowns. I will always and forever support tiny crowns for tiny people. They are never, not cute and you definitely need them. and while we're on the topic... You know what else we support? Floral collars on dogs. The cute overload is EVERYTHING.

Holly and Kori's standing ceremony was one for the books. If you're planning a short ceremony, you can skip chairs entirely. I love the intimacy this set-up created and the connection between the guests and the happy couple.

Following their ceremony, Holly and Kori moved to Tlaquepaque with their guests to celebrate. This sweet space is one of our favorite places to work and you're about to see exactly why.

Guest tables were marked by calligraphed cactus paddles and the centerpieces alternated between fun, desert inspired arrangements and candles in gorgeous, minimal glass cylinders. The set-up was simple but the end result was incredibly chic.

One of my favorite details throughout the reception were the terra cotta signs. Each guests' seat was marked by a calligraphed terra cotta plate and this detail was mirrored in their menu signage and in small cacti potted in terra cotta at each table.

Cara & Kynan's Modern Boho Wedding

Whoever told you modern and boho can't mix was lying to you. One of our favorite things to do here is blend two disparate styles into a seamless design for our couples' wedding days. Cara loved the boho look but chose a very modern venue and at the end of the day, the two styles meshed perfectly.

We know you're here for the pictures (they're our favorite part too), so we'll jump right in and share our favorite parts along the way!

This ceremony set-up is one of our all time favorites. Our rustic wooden arch was created just for us from found Arizonan wood. For Cara and Kynan, we adorned the arch with dozens of white roses, hydrangea, larkspur, and ranunculus and added the boho element with gorgeous, seasonal green vines. Each guest seat featured a small yellow boutonniere in memory of Cara's father. It honestly took our breath away to see every guest at the wedding wearing a happy little reminder of him throughout the night. And if we're being totally honest, every time we look at her pictures we tear up a little bit.

We love Clayton on the Park because their reception space is full of beautiful light and lends itself to many different layouts. Cara and Kynan mixed rounds and rectangular tables to fit all of their guests and sat at a grand head table in the front of the room. Centerpieces alternated between oversize arrangements in our brass vases and garland to create a mix of textures and height. Blooms were added to the gorgeous cake from Ruze and touches of gold throughout the space helped add some elegance to the design.

One of our favorite elements from the day was the lush head table garland. We layered our favorite seasonal foliages down the length of the table and dotted in tons of white blooms for a full, garden-style look that really anchored the room. If you're looking for help styling your wedding day, we would love to work with you! Bringing your vision to life is our FAVORITE thing to do.
