Gahh, this bouquet! Could you just look at it for hours? When you have the chance to style an inspiration shoot at a stunning estate in Phoenix like Sarah of Sarah’s Garden did, you go all out—no lackluster colors or forgotten details here. Thanks to Kelsie Pinkerton, the colors and patterns are well documented! Take a peek:
Was their ever a more perfect dress to pair with a bouquet that breathtaking? The lace Claire Pettibone ‘Kristine’ gown was actually their model Melissa’s second choice in her wedding with Peter, so she ended up getting to wear it also.
The rough stone walls, climbing vines and immense trees of this sprawling Phoenix estate made for an ideal spot to create a bright and festive space for backyard wedding inspiration. Captured by Pinkerton Photography, touches of lace, warm woods, and vibrant colored florals by Sarah’s Garden were pulled together to create an elegant fiesta. To honor Phoenix’s history and culture, a few Spanish/Mexican details were incorporated. The beautiful paper suite by Foil and Ink incorporated a unique tile motif.
These tile sugar cookies. So good. Clearly, the cultural influence had to continue to the desserts, so Ruze Cake House whipped up a spread of cookies, cake, and churros.
Incredible! Thanks to the team below for the inspiration… And the churro cravings.
