Hillary + Claudio's Colorful Cabin Wedding

Sometimes an inquiry floats our way with a name that rings some bells. When Hillary reached out, it only took me a few minutes to realize why she sounded so familiar to me; way back in the day we were in the same girl scout troop. And now? We were going to get to work together for her wedding day! It’s so special to me that past acquaintances and friends choose Form Floral for their wedding celebrations and this was no exception.

Hillary and Claudio tied the knot in a family cabin in Heber Arizona. The day was full of color and biiiig, full blooms. Oh! And did I mention they had a confetti exit from their ceremony? Yeah. It was reallll good. Scroll through for our favorite details from their day!

Primary Color Wedding Inspiration

I’ve been craving color for the longest time. But, rather than crave it and keep my fingers crossed for the right client, I chose to start experimenting with brights whenever I was able. It’s been about a year of behind the scenes color and our clients this spring are all singing the same song as us.

But, we’re still over here pushing our colorful agenda (not sorry). So, I’m thrilled to share this shoot we created with The Clayton on the Park featuring BOLD PRIMARY COLORS. From the gorgeous marigold Sarah Seven gown on our bride to the all red floral designs, this shoot became an instant favorite around here. I mean, COME ON. Scroll through for alllll the goods.

Brock & Megan's Intimate Superstition Mountain Wedding

Last year I took on a project that was a bit outside of our usual scope of work. My older brother popped the question last fall and we planned his intimate desert wedding. The best part of it all? He and his fiance opted for our trust package so their wedding day was full of gorgeous surprises. There are so many special details from their day that I’ve been dying to share and it’s finally time!!

Brock has always dreamed of having a giant, very traditional wedding with dancing and a lengthy guest list. Megan wanted to run away to a courthouse for a private wedding ceremony. So, how did we meet in the middle? The couple chose to keep their guest list tight, only 30 attendees, and held their celebration at Lost Dutchman State Park. The views are breathtaking and the compromise between traditional and non-traditional was such a fun challenge to tackle throughout their planning.

Minted Wedding Invitations

Brock and Megan decided early on that they wanted to forgo most of the traditional elements of their wedding day. If you and your fiance are having a hard time deciding where to start planning or how to allocate your budget, we can help you out. We recommend that each of you sit alone and list your top 5 priorities for your wedding celebration. Then, compare notes. The categories where you overlap will take priority and the rest you don’t need to worry about… really.

The priorities in our planning here were to have great photos, a beautiful film, and incredible food.

For photos, the amazing Lauren with Lunabear Studios was on site with us. Brock is a total ham and we knew he’d need a photographer that could capture his goofy side but reign him in for some serious photos too. I absolutely love Lauren’s use of light and color but my favorite part of her work is the way she captures joy in her clients.

Superstition Mountain Wedding - Outdoor Wedding Inspiration

For ceremony, I knew we wanted to create something gorgeous without taking anything away from the stunning view. So, we built a little wall of flowers to anchor the space and add some beauty while keeping the mountain as the main focal point. We played off of the colors in the desert with touches of pale yellow and blush alongside a mainly red and magenta color palette. Those red roses have me all in my feelings. They were perfection.

We were lucky enough to work with Moonrise Standard for catering and to say they knocked it out of the park would be an understatement. Derek sat down with Brock and Megan to learn about what they love to eat, then he created a custom menu for a three course meal that featured elevated versions of food they loved to eat. My personal favorite was the smoked chili and pumpkin bisque but every part of the meal was absolutely drool-worthy.

And finally, the reception space!! Our friends at Tremaine Ranch provided the furniture and tabletop accents here. We ordered linen from Linen Lark in an array of colors that faded from light to dark as the table progressed. The flatware and goblets from Tremaine Ranch brought in some much needed moodiness.

And that, folks, is how ya do it. This was such a special project and I loved the trust Brock and Megan gave us for their design and planning. If you are interested in letting us work our magic for your wedding, ask us about the Trust package!

Melissa & Jeremy's L'Auberge de Sedona Wedding

In 2017 we were the busiest we’ve ever been. We were so busy, in fact, that I didn’t make any time to share the work we were creating. So, I’m excited to throw it back this week to a summer wedding from 2017 that was an absolute joy to create.

Burgundy and Blush Wedding at L'Auberge de Sedona

Melissa and Jeremy tied the knot in the red rocks of Sedona at the gorgeous L’auberge resort. Melissa wasn’t afraid of a bit of color so we leaned into a color palette of reds and pinks nestled into containers that leaned a bit more classic. Paired with all white details at their reception, the blooms popped beautifully while tying in the colors from the mountains in the background.
