Colorful Arizona wedding: Kelsey + Mason

July 27, 2015

Aren’t these invites too cute? Kelsey grew up in Arizona so she always knew she wanted a desert wedding. The tucked away Boulders Resort gave all their 150 guests a true desert experience, from the cacti to the earthy hues right down to the succulent adorned cake (but more on that later). Elyse Hall Photography documented it all below…

Kelsey says, An Arizona sunset was my inspiration for my color palette. I love the richness of magenta, orange, and deep purples all mixed together with the green hue of succulents. Since my florals were pretty bold colors, I looked to the rest of the decorations as subtle enhancements. By playing off of the desert landscape that the venue provided, we were able to utilize that natural, organic scenery throughout our wedding day. We had an incredible mix of vendors whose inspirations fused together to make our wedding ceremony location and reception both breathtakingly beautiful.

A bit of planning advice, from the bride: Instead of focusing on everything that has to be done and stressing out, look at it on a month-by-month basis and what needs to be accomplished. When times get stressful, just remember the reason why you and your significant other are planning this day; it is because you found the love of your life that you want to spend forever with.

Wishing you the best, Kelsey + Mason!
