Intimate Mediterranean-inspired micro wedding in Scottsdale, planned with MatchBook

June 15, 2023

This intimate Scottsdale wedding is extra special to us, Cakies. Not only do we love the intimacy of a micro wedding planned by couple themselves (in just four weeks!) but these two used our wedding planning website MatchBook to find and book wedding Pro Brooklyn Photography on their timeline and budget. We love hearing from anyone who finds vendors or inspiration through our sites, especially when it turns out this lovely and memorable!

Scottsdale Wedding on a Budget

Bride Debbie explains, We had just renovated our home, so our budget was pretty tight. We originally wanted to get married in Mexico but decided to do something smaller with immediate family only at my father’s country club in Arizona. We decided in January to get married in March over my children’s spring break. I’ve always loved the look of Silverleaf Club. It reminds me of Tuscany, so that was an easy pick for us.

They also opted to save money by styling their own flowers for the décor and tables, since Debbie and her mom have some experience in that area. That way they just had to hire a florist for the bridal bouquet and boutonniere, and Bloom + Blueprint Event Co nailed the design there!

The couple had been engaged for a couple of years, but prioritized family life and personal events in that time instead of a lengthy wedding planning process. When it came time to throw the wedding, they whipped everything together in about one month. Btw, how sweet are these flower girls?

As far as their wedding style, Debbie wanted to stick to muted desert hues, while representing her more eclectic style by incorporating vintage vases. This gave everything a more moody vibe with a candlelit ceremony and dinner to follow.
