Venue: Gold Canyon Golf Club
Theme: Fall colors, rustic, desert touches
I loved this wedding for a number of reasons. To start, I found gigantic succulents which worked well with the bride's Arizona-themed wedding (for favors, they gave out small, planted cactus!). I also used hanging succulents in the chair accents, a new one for me.
I also loved the rich color scheme. The red sunflowers popped against the sage succulents and overall it was a great combination of fall flowers in a beautiful setting.
The bouquets consisted of red sunflowers, deep red dahlias, terracotta and leondias roses, succulents and rustic greenery. The bride's bouquet was accented by chocolate fiddlehead fern shoots.
I was able to use tiny succulents for the boutonniere and corsage work.
A guest book table treated the guest to "wishing rocks." Each guest signed a wish on a river rock using a paint pen and dropped it in the bowl. I thought this was a stupendous idea and worked so great with the whole theme.
We added some color with a tall arrangement featuring succulents, red sunflowers, dahlias and roses. This sat atop a vase lined with moss and another large succulent.
The ceremony site was nestled at the base of the Superstitions and was gorgeous! We accented her aisles with a small bouquet of red sunflowers, dahlias, succulents and cymbidium orchids. There were trailing succulents to add more desert flair.
Plus, succulents are sustainable and can be re-planted after the wedding!
