Her heart is buried between her thoughts and her emotions. Her thoughts leading to interest in the man she just met, while her emotions feeling hesitant and shy. Little does she know, the man she just met is having the same conversation between his thoughts and emotions. If we were to go deeper into the story of Cinderella and Prince Charming maybe this is how they first felt when they had their first ever look.
Today’s wedding inspiration features a story from our bride and groom that is similar to the modern day version Cinderella story. They met through a similarly shared hashtag: #Camelbackmountain. This interaction led them to a string of comments and likes after they first began following each other. After taking mutual notice in each other and realizing mutual feelings were being exchanged, they met and took a real liking to each other. Soon after they shared a commitment of love. Their first date led to hiking Camelback Mountain before lunch at the Arizona Biltmore. They quickly realized the divine love story written before them. They had a reception celebration for themselves which included the groom organizing a fun flash mob as a surprise for his bride.
For this wedding inspiration, the soft yellow color palette with the greenery was a subtle focus. Their fairy-tale like story inspired this shoot with their own modern twist. Nothing say modern like a clean citrus scent and a tropical infusion for the perfect Arizona destination wedding.
If you are a 1960’s kind of couple with a passion for singers such as Frank Sinatra or classic American icons like JFK, then this is the perfect wedding inspiration for you. There is the right amount of modern timelessness and luxury with the Hotel Valley Ho resort being the premier location in downtown Scottsdale. Urban, vintage, and contemporary infused together alongside a warm and inviting atmosphere. The lush greenery accented their wedding day as the outdoor Arizona lawn reception was decorated with lots of candles. There was also some savvy one-of-a-kind detailing to help give it a personal touch. For example: creative escort cards were used as displays for hanging florals with ribbons and name cards. They also rented a vintage 1960’s photo bus which is a great idea to highlight your interests as a couple. This location is tropical paradise on a desert made fit for a couple who want that destination wedding in the heart of urban Arizona.
