Recently, one of the newest venues in Phoenix, Chateau Luxe, invited us to design a styled shoot for some of their marketing material. We were honored and super excited to get started on this fun project. We were able to choose which location in the venue we wanted to design and had creative reign on just about everything.
We were so happy to be a part of this beautiful wedding that took place at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, Arizona. This wedding was held in an area of Desert Botanical Gardens called the Steele Herb Garden. Being as the venue itself is so stunningly beautiful with a natural desert habitat, it didn’t need much to really complete the look and make it the perfect setting for this incredible wedding. Below, we really focus on the detail in the decor for this wedding. The couple used a vintage dresser as their unity candle for ceremony. They also used a vintage oriental rug to stand on. We love this detail, it is just the right touch to really highlight the bride and groom, even more than they already are. We had Christian from Classic Party Rental construct the actual arbor for the bride and groom with two different colors of drape. Flower Bar, who was the florist for the wedding, did a beautiful job of really pulling in the bride’s vision by incorporating greenery and fresh herbs into her arrangements, in honor of the Steele Herb Garden. The bride’s main request for the design of her wedding was to compliment the scenery of the venue with out overpowering it. After the ceremony took place, guests moved on to cocktail hour. During this time, the ceremony area was flipped and turned into the reception space. We used the draping as the backdrop for the couple’s sweetheart table. Guests snacked on appetizers and enjoyed refreshing drinks during this time. A big focal point of cocktail hour was the cake. It was made by Pixy Cakes and was set out on another vintage dresser. Flower Bar added the perfect greenery touches to the wedding cake, which sat beside a really neat groom’s cake. Check out the beautiful images, described above, captured by Savidge Photography:
New colors we love seeing together for weddings are gray and yellow! We have seen this color scheme for a little while now, but it hasn’t been one of the top picks. Lately we have been seeing it more and more. We think this is going to continue to grow in popularity because it is fitting for every season. Depending on the shades of these colors, this scheme can alternate between cool and warm colors. Tell us what you think!
