Alexis & Trey's Winery Wedding

October is going to be a month of "oh my goodness this wedding was my favorite wedding" posts. But really, Alexis and Trey had a day full of SO MUCH magic that I can't believe it's taken me nearly a year to share.

First things first, these two were one of the kindest couples we have ever worked with. And that's saying something because our clients are awesome. Every step of the way, Alexis guided us with her vision while simultaneously trusting that we would bring our creative vision to the table for a result that would be a dream for everyone involved.

Alexis and Trey tied the knot at a winery owned by Trey's family in northern Arizona. The utilized the whole property but our favorite space was the incredible barn that housed their reception. I'm getting ahead of myself but just wait for the incredible set-up later in this post!!

Let's start with the happy couple and all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen. The color palette for the wedding could only be described as "Arizona realness" with a gorgeous mix of ivory and copper. My favorite bloom in the bunch were the incredible koko loko garden roses that grow in this unbelievable shade of nude and immediately make every arrangement about 100 times classier and more mysterious.

The ceremony centered around this AMAZING tree. The only additional decor were some oversize arrangements at the entrance to the space and some blooms to adorn the chairs down the aisle. We topped it all off with a light sprinkling of rose petals.

After the ceremony, everyone made their way to the gorgeous tented reception space. Copper and ivory centerpieces graced the tables and gorgeous twinkly lights lit up the tent. Speeches were given and everyone danced the night away and honestly, we wish we were part of that party.

Chelsea + Mike's Sky Ranch Lodge Sedona Wedding

Chelsea and Mike's wedding took place in Sedona at the sky ranch lodge with one of the best views I've ever seen. These sweet lovebirds met when Mike hired Chelsea to work in his first bar/restaurant and after working together for a month, they were certain they were soul mates. Fast forward six years to a dreamy beach proposal on vacation in Santa Monica (you can see the photos of it over on Chelsea's blog!) that left them both floating on cloud nine as they began wedding planning.

Chelsea and Mike's ceremony had the most incredible view of the red rocks in the background. All the rest of her decor was kept neutral so the focus could be on the beauty in the nature around them.

We loved the fun details Chelsea and Mike peppered into their wedding day. At the entrance to the ceremony, guests were able to stop into The Foto Booth Bus and snap some photos with a whole collection of cute props. I also love that sweet lil' VW as a fun detail for portraits.

After the ceremony, guests headed in to find their seats in the beautifully lit reception space. A dreamcatcher held name cards to guide guests to their tables and brought in the perfect boho touch.

If you're torn between adding color or focusing on a neutral palette - stress no more. Recently we've seen many of our couples choose a classic color palette for their ceremony than add in more color at their reception. You get a great balance of timeless designs and more of-the-moment floral without sacrificing on either. You can do the same with a flower crown. I love that Chelsea kept her look more pared down for her ceremony and portraits then added a big flower crown to party the night away at her reception.

Pro tip: You CAN have it all. Who knew?
