Elegant floral wedding: Michelle + Brandon
B + M live in California but chose to say I Do at the elegant Arizona Biltmore in Michelle’s hometown, surrounded by the lushest flowers. There wasn’t a theme per se, but ‘secret garden’ was their muse, complete with green draping and floral installations for an intimate vibe. Brushfire Photography gave them the natural, non-staged photos they had their eyes on…

The bouquet recipe… Anemones, white, blush, and pink garden roses, and organic shaped greenery.
The toughest part of planning during their 1.5 year engagement was the guest list, which they had to narrow to 280. Their best advice? Get the big stuff out of the way first—then enjoy the process.
A pretty spectacular spot to wed, ya think? Michelle tells it, I grew up about 10 minutes from the hotel and Brandon fell in love with it upon our first visit. We really wanted to have our wedding be a weekend long celebration so we wanted to choose a place that everyone could stay and hang out. The architecture of the Biltmore is quintessential Arizona, which is what we wanted to share with our family and friends who have never visited. It is very grand and sophisticated.
Words from Victoria Canada Weddings and Events: Because of the bride’s love for floral, we thought incorporating a floral wall would be perfect. We then collaborated with Petal Pusher to create a wall where we could hang the seating, then later turn it into the backdrop for the Slow Motion Video Booth. Petal Pusher was the perfect partner for this vision and the guests couldn’t get enough of this detail!

Congratulations, Michelle and Brandon!
