Elise and Kory were married at Aldea Wedding & Event Center in Phoenix, Ariz. on March 17 — St. Patrick’s Day! “The character and architecture of Tiaquepaque is romantic, unique, and timeless, so it fit our personalities as a couple,” Elise said. “Also, the flexibility and confidence of the staff gave us assurance that they could make our wedding just as special.” The bride wore a beaded-bodice mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with her hair in a sideswept ponytail updo, while the groom wore his uniform. Doesn’t he look dapper? “The anticipation of seeing each other at the ceremony made the walk down the aisle the most memorable,” she said. “Having all of our family and friends watch and smile as we made our commitment was priceless.” The reception was filled with romantic decor, and a cake that was topped with “Love is Sweet.” The newlyweds’ advice? “Be patient, sit back, and relax,” Elise said. “Don’t stress. Save everything; it goes by too fast.”

Tayler and Alex were married at Desert Botanical Garden in Tempe, Az. on November 16. Surrounded by nature, the couple chose to do a first look before the ceremony. They both got teary-eyed as they opened their eyes to see each other — she wearing a lace wedding gown, accessorized with a DIY floral sash, and he wearing a gray tuxedo and patterned yellow tie. Surprisingly, they went went comfy shoes, TOMS and Converse! Guests were greeted with a sign that said, “Friends of the bride, friends of the groom, sit together, there is plenty of room,” and “No one is too old for fairytales, welcome to our happily ever after.” The reception pavilion was lit with hanging lantern stars overhead, tables were decorated with baby’s breath, hydrangea, and rose centerpieces in mason jars, and burlap runners, most which were handmade by the bride, mother, and sister.

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

It was available! My original venue had to cancel my wedding 12 weeks prior due to event restrictions. Talk about anxiety! We had people traveling from all over the country and thank goodness I did my own invitations because I hadn’t yet printed them.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Shoes

2. Brooch

3. Flowers

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Reading my vows. Dan and I decided to write our own vows, and although, I was very reluctant at first because I was nervous, I am so glad that we did. I’ll remember that moment forever.

Rustic Vintage-Inspired Fall Ranch Wedding in Arizona

Maren & Josh

September 22  

Skull Valley, Arizona 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

It’s a ranch owned by a couple and when we went to look at it, the man took us around the property then offered us wine while we talked about life and not necessarily wedding details. It was so calm, quiet, and peaceful. We ended up talking into the evening.  They made us feel like the whole venue would be about us and our family. This was a far different experience and more personal experience than other venues.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Josh’s maternal grandmother was our minister.

2. The chandeliers were lit and hanging from a tree in the middle of the woods with no outlet or cords in view.

3. Vintage furniture and blue grass band.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We love the Duce, we would go there for weekend brunch often and our photographers suggested we look into it for our wedding. Since several of our guests would be traveling to our wedding we liked that we could share one of our little downtown Phoenix jewels! It was so us and my husband-to-be was so incredibly excited, I loved that he was invested in the decision. The appeal of it being different than your standard hotel ballroom was a big part of it too.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My dress that my talented friend, Tara Ballantyne, Interior and Food Stylist out of Toronto, Ontario created rosettes out of my great grandmother’s hairpin lace that was over 100 years old, it added such a personal touch to my new dress, and was such an heirloom, my mother had also used the lace at her wedding.

The spin we took on the Duce’s bus Old School with the wedding party after the ceremony and before the reception, it was so fun riding around downtown, just relaxing, and celebrating any stress just melted away! Studio Moirae go amazing location shots with the sun going down!

The ceremony decorations, we didn’t need much since the Duce is amazing all by itself, but my mom and maid of honor dried and arranged hydrangeas from my mom’s garden in Minnesota where I grew up, they looked amazing and it was a little bit of Minnesota in my Arizona wedding, also the flags added so much, they were favors, a send off, table numbers and several of my friends still have them.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Take the time to make it you! it doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive, if you love it everyone will. Let your wedding be a reflection of your life and love with your future husband/ wife and share that with your friends and family!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

When we came around the corner after the ceremony to be announced as husband and wife, to see all of our family and friends waving the flags I had made and realizing it had turned out just as I had hoped and how incredibly perfect the day was…and the party hadn’t even started yet!
