When Ashley and Rodney pictured their wedding day, Ashley hoped to elope, but Rodney imagined a traditional celebration, so a compromise was born; they chose a small and intimate destination wedding in Scottsdale, Arizona. With a champagne and raspberry color palette that was a bright and beautiful addition to the subdued desert landscape they said their vows in an outdoor ceremony surrounded by bougainvillea, then joined their 30 guests for a dinner reception. All the guests sat at one long banquet table to enjoy the feast together!
