Blake & Ryan met as Freshman in high school. Their 11-year fairytale romance as new girl in school meets sports all star reached a peak when they engaged at one of their favorite destinations, the beautiful Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Blake and Ryan have worked in the wedding industry for years. We planned a beautiful day focused on an intimate and elegant wedding under the bright desert sky.
The bride wore two gowns for this destination wedding; one for the ceremony and one for the reception. The “Nancy,” a Rosa Clara lace column gown with a cascading neckline and low back, silhouetted the bride’s figure; a perfect gown for an elopement ceremony.
Hand torn & calligraphy invitations give a sneak peek of the light and airy elegance of this desert wedding.
Beautiful red Bougainvillea are in full bloom on the sprawling grounds of the Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North. These ornamental vines are one of several perfectly manicured desert plants on the resort property. Set on the historic site of Crescent Moon Ranch, the Four Seasons Scottsdale is tucked away in the Sonoran Desert. Drenched in sunshine and vast blue skies. This gorgeous private resort offers a romantic desert feel with the luxury and exquisite service every wedding deserves.
The ceremony featured carefully constructed floral architecture with ivory and blush petals. The bride floated down the aisle to her groom in a navy tux and piercing blue eyes that popped slightly against the desert sand backdrop.
The intimate reception on Troon Lawn of the Four Seasons overlooks the Sonoran Desert through the view of two towering and majestic, Saguaro Cacti. We love the elegance of the white and ivory tablescape enlaced with gold accents, textured romantic floral and calligraphy menus with hand torn place cards.
Keeping with the copper desert theme, the ivory three tier, simple cake with copper foil and floral embellishments was simply elegant.
We created a celebratory signature wedding cocktail to toast to the original Spanish settlers of the territory: a modern and popular Spanish Gin and Tonic. The night ended under the choral and purple desert sky of dancing, sparkling stars.
