Rustic Antique Arizona Wedding at The Paseo

March 15, 2019 | juliette

If modern romance and rustic desert vibes are your things, get ready for Chelsea and Kyle’s wedding at The Paseo to take your breath away! As a nod to their time in the Czech Republic, the couple focused on creating a relaxed atmosphere and used simple yet stunning details to show off their personal style. Lace & a Barn helped the couple bring their timeless yet non-traditional wedding dreams to life with gorgeous desert-hued floral designs, and the creative duo added antique details to give a vintage look to their rustic Arizona venue. This special day was brimming with emotional moments and epic views, all of which Alayna G. Clark Photography captured so beautifully!

The Couple:

Chelsea and Kyle

The Wedding:

The Paseo, Apache Junction, Arizona

We wanted our wedding to be authentic to our style and include our closest friends and family. We lived abroad in the Czech Republic together and loved the laid back style of their weddings, including having one witness in their bridal party instead of a large group of bridesmaids and groomsmen. We chose to have our dearest friend by each of our sides to witness and attest to our love.

My MOH surprised me with the most gorgeous and sentimental pendants for my bouquet on the morning of my wedding. They included photos of my grandparents who had passed, my grandparents who are still with us, and my parents. All of the most cherished people in my world got to walk down the aisle with me.

We chose to get married in Arizona to be closest to our friends and family, as my husband and I are both Arizona natives. The Paseo has the most gorgeous backdrop of the Superstition Mountains and the venue space has such a unique mix of industrial metal with rustic vibes that were the perfect setting for our dream wedding.

I loved the romantic, boho, and slightly non-traditional look of Monique Lhuillier gowns from the beginning. I wanted a dress that wasn’t stark white and when I tried on the Severine gown I was enamored. I had envisioned a lower back on my dress and with the help of my consultant Ashley Doll from Norstrom Bridal in Scottsdale, we were able to make my dream come true! My MOH (and my best friend) wore an ivory BHLDN sheath dress that I thought was timeless and gorgeous and looked amazing on her. We both did our own hair and makeup for the wedding and went with a natural vibe. My shoes from Bella Belle Shoes were flats and so comfortable for dancing! I’m not much for heels, so those shoes were a dream.

My best advice is to make a Pinterest board! Screenshot anything and everything you like across social media. Search social media hashtags- that’s actually how I found a lot of our vendors! And remember, this is a huge life event. There will be stressful and challenging times but remember that the end result is getting to marry the love of your life and the day will be absolutely perfect even if it doesn’t go exactly according to plan.

Our wedding colors included ivory, sandalwood, hints of blush, eucalyptus greenery and a deep charcoal grey in the groom’s suit. We had a spring wedding and I wanted a color palette that was neutral, fresh, and timeless.

The most memorable DIY piece from our wedding is the sign that hung over our sweetheart table. I purchased a laser cut piece of our last name from Kolorize. My mother handmade a herringbone style sign, which she framed and painted in white. She attached our last name and our vendors from Lace & a Barn adorned it with the most gorgeous flowers. The sign hangs in our house today, and I smile every time I see it!

Bride’s Entrance – “In My Life” by The Beatles

First Dance – “Say You Won’t Let Go” by Boyce Avenue

Our photographer was everything we could have dreamed of and more. We met and road tripped with her to Sedona the weekend of our wedding for engagement photos. We went off roading for amazing pictures and she made us feel so comfortable and honestly like supermodels. We’re expecting our first baby in April (what a great anniversary gift!) and we will definitely be working with Alayna again in the future for family photos.

The 50 Ceremony Arches You’re Going to See at 2018 Weddings

July 17, 2018 | juliette

Ceremony arches continue to be a favorite trend in wedding decor, and 2018 has been the best yet for inspiration! We’re seeing more couples add unique twists to the shape and design of their ceremony arch to make it fit their style and stand out from anything we’ve seen before. From a-frames to cascading florals to shapes that redefine the idea of a traditional “arch,” we’re so impressed with the ways couples are reimagining this classic decor piece. So, without further ado, here are the ceremony arches that have made the biggest splash in 2018 — and, we imagine, will keep popping up all year long!

This Couple Found a Special Way to Honor the Bride’s Late Friend at Their AZ Wedding at The Paseo

June 24, 2018 | juliette

For Ally and Ryan’s Arizona wedding at The Paseo, the magic was in the details. By using a neutral color palette and bohemian-inspired decor, the couple created a dreamy outdoor desert with a view of the iconic Superstitious Mountains. But, for all the prettiness they created with florals and macrame, the true heart-melting element was the chair Ally made for her late best friend so she would have the best seat in the house. The chair was adorned with angel wings and a stunning display of pink, coral, and cream roses from J Barry Designs — the only pops of color in the wedding decor — and held a framed photo Ally had specially printed as a reminder that her friend was there in spirit. As you can imagine, Ally and Ryan meticulously curated every detail of their wedding to create the most memorable experience for all the loved ones who supported them on their big day. Photographers Luke and Mallory outdid themselves by capturing not only all the special details the couple created for everyone else but also the intimate moments they kept to themselves, including their golden hour portraits that would make anyone want to take a romantic escape into the desert.

The Couple:

Ally and Ryan

The Wedding:

The Paseo, Apache Junction, Arizona

Throughout our 4 years of long distance, we wrote letters to each other. On our wedding day, we wrote each other our “final letter” to each other which represented this new chapter! I was so emotional while reading it because that was one of my favorite memories while we were dating.

We chose a mostly neutral color palette because I had a decor chair called “Katie’s chair” that I designed to honor my friend who passed away, and I wanted that to be where the color was! I found the chair and angel wings at a local Phoenix antique shop and printed a picture of her that we placed in a frame from World Market.

I loved taking communion as a couple during our ceremony and having a friend sing one of our favorite worship songs. Another memorable moment was sitting back at our sweetheart table seeing all of our friends and family who were there to celebrate US. It was a heart-warming moment for sure. So many different people from different seasons of life that were under one roof for us.

I wanted my bridal style to be classic but detailed with a touch of boho. I added the off-the-shoulder sleeves to the dress I bought to give it a boho look. My style inspiration mostly came from Australian wedding trends that I saw via Pinterest! For accessories, I kept it simple and only wore earrings. For my makeup, I chose to go a little more glam than my every day but stayed with neutral tones.

Our advice: don’t stress out! I wish the day of I would not have cared so much about the timeline. I was so worried about upsetting our guests that sometimes I got lost and forgot to enjoy each moment. Also, trust your vendors and take their advice, because they obviously have a lot of experience and know more than you!

Southwestern Glam Scottsdale Wedding at Desert Foothills

The desert vibes and glamorous details in this Desert Foothills wedding is the perfect fusion for laid-back couples who love an elevated look. Using a combination of succulents, antlers, cow hides, gold accents, and Atelier de LaFleur‘s eclectic floral designs, Imoni Events transformed the open desert and barn venue into the down-to-Earth wedding of Jessica and Nicolas’ dreams. Even though the bride rocked a totally glam Ines Di Santo gown and there were plenty of elegant details to add a sophisticated feel, there were also plenty of boho details and whimsical surprises — such as the beer donkey — to go around. Photographer Logan Cole and Everly Films totally outdid themselves in capturing every moment of this southwestern glam Arizona wedding!

The Couple:

Jessica and Nicolas

The Wedding:

Desert Foothills, Scottsdale, Arizona

Nick really wanted our wedding to be something different and Desert Foothills fit perfectly with our vision. To put it simply, the vibe was totally us. The barn is located on a huge ranch that feels remote but is actually only about 10 minutes from home. We just fell in love with the barn. It was a blank canvas, and we were able to create exactly the look and layout that we wanted. The ceremony site was beautiful and felt like we were getting married in the middle of the desert, surrounded by majestic saguaros. There are few things in life that are more beautiful than an Arizona sunset and the barn patio provided our guests with a view of the beautiful desert, amazing sunset, and live music.

We said our own vows, which I highly recommend. Our pastor encouraged us to take a moment to look around at everyone that was there supporting us. It was awesome to look out and see our guests’ smiling faces and reflect on how they have impacted different stages of our lives. We consider our siblings our oldest and dearest friends, so they stood behind us during our ceremony.

This was the biggest day of our life so we wanted it to be authentically us: laidback, fun, and down to Earth. It was most important for us to enjoy every second of this fleeting day and for our guests to feel uniquely important and an intricate part of our wedding. Nick and I have a deep love for each other, our friends, and our family. We wanted our ceremony to have purpose and be powerful, a message filled with faith and for our love for each other to be palpable. We also wanted the whole weekend and our reception to be a blast, an unforgettable party filled with great food and drinks, endless dancing, and fun!

I can honestly say that I enjoyed the entire planning process! My mom and I worked tirelessly on all the details and tying the theme together, and I couldn’t be more grateful for all the laughs we shared during the months leading up to the big day. We decided to “let go” the Monday before the wedding and enjoy the week with our friends and family. The day of, Nick and I both had the most wonderful and relaxing morning with our friends. Both of us were so calm that day and I really believe that made us able to soak it all in. . . see everyone that was there, see all the details, and enjoy all the feelings. 

Everything was so natural with Logan Cole and he has an incredible eye. Nothing ever felt posed or forced, which was great because we just were able to be ourselves and he was able to capture some of the most intimate moments. He captured our love and our joy better than I could have ever imagined.

We absolutely love the sunset photos that he took. The sunset was beautiful and it was just us out in the middle of the desert and could faintly hear the guitarist playing and the laughter of cocktail hour. The photos are works of art and they capture our joy and laughter perfectly.

Lush Industrial

Industrial venues are becoming more popular than ever and we love that couples are looking to bring a bit of the outside inside for their wedding. If you’re saying “I do” in an industrial venue like a warehouse or loft, going lush with your look can warm up a cold space.

This Black, Burgundy, and Gold Desert Botanical Garden Wedding is a Total Showstopper

February 19, 2018 | colleen

Kacia and Tony’s Desert Botanical Garden wedding has the most perfectly modern, rich color palette. After planning the wedding herself, Kacia and Tony turned to Hitch Without a Glitch to take the reins for day-of coordination. With everything going seamlessly behind-the-scenes, Kacia and Tony were able to relax and be fully present in their day. After their first kiss as husband and wife, they headed to the reception where they enjoyed delicious bites from Atlasta Catering and Salted Caramel Catering. As the celebration continued, Ray the DJ kept people on the dance floor! Photographers Jonnie and Garrett and videographer Kyle Hustis beautifully documented the lush details and sweetness between Kacia and Tony.

Jonnie and Garrett, The Petal Theory, and Tremaine Ranch were all musts for me. I have enjoyed the work of these professionals for years! So much so that I provided them with the general vibe I was looking for, and let them do the rest. I knew their vision was in line with my own, trusted them, and could not have been happier with the way everything turned out. They rule.

Choosing wedding colors was the biggest challenge for me. I tried to make so many different colors work for the decor and the bridal party and none of them felt right! Once I finally decided to stick to my guns and put the bridal party in all black, it felt like us and everything else came naturally from there. The groom, of course, wore an incredibly sharp burgundy suit because there’s nothing he can’t pull off. Our wedding date was embroidered inside!

We knew we needed an outdoor location for both the ceremony & reception – we love outdoor weddings. We had considered a few other venues, but as soon as we walked thru the Desert Botanical Garden together we were in love with it. The garden captures all of the beauty of a desert landscape, especially with the red mountain & sunset backdrop setting at their Ullman Terrace.

A wedding day happens in moments that all truly fly by. I buzzed the entire day! Take the time to pause and enjoy each moment. I’d heard from friends and family members that they didn’t remember their ceremony because of all the excitement & nerves. I was definitely SO excited and so nervous but our officiant, the groom’s sister, had everybody deliberately pause to take it all in. I will forever remember that and I am so grateful.

Jonnie and Garrett are amazing people and such incredibly talented photographers. They truly know – and will do – what they need to do in order to capture the day and ALL of the feels! Plus, we had so much fun with them that we asked them to stay and dance with us after their time was up. Of course they agreed!

Time, quality time, was the most important thing to us when planning our wedding. We wanted it to be a fun night spent enjoying food, drinks, and music with the people that we love most! We incorporated the traditions that were meaningful to us and did away with the rest, allowing us to be present and have fun with our family and friends.

The groom is a first-generation American whose family left Bulgaria just a few years before he had been thought-of. The bride’s family had been in Arizona for generations & generations. It was a really cool moment when an upbeat Bulgarian dance song came on and everybody joined hands on the dance floor. Some knew what they were doing, others had no clue! It was unexpected, hilarious and so much fun.

Spanish-Inspired Arizona Wedding at The Paseo

February 17, 2018 | juliette

Lauren and Amir’s wedding at The Paseo was a beautiful mix of sultry Spanish style and rustic desert charm. Their outdoor ceremony was perfectly framed by a view of the Superstition Mountains. In true Spanish fashion, their indoor reception featured a combination of rich and vibrant colors alongside classic and elegant details, the highlight being the floral and giant balloon centerpieces created by J Barry Designs. The bride wore a stunning Marchesa gown with a removable peplum that took her look from romantic for the ceremony to flirty and fun for the reception, and the groom looked equally stylish in a custom tan suit from Trunk Club that Lauren created herself. Overall, the vibe was festive yet sophisticated, and Sincerely Yara Photographie captured every element beautifully!

The Couple:

Lauren and Amir

The Wedding:

The Paseo, Apache Junction, Arizona

We wanted to keep our wedding within the vibe we always envisioned. We wanted something warm and colorful, ethnic and bright. We wanted guests to feel a spicy Spanish vibe because we love that food and culture! We wanted our guests to feel like they were transported to a private oasis — something rich in food and decadency and some place that they could feel all of our love. We are very loving, expressive people, and we wanted our wedding to reflect just that.

Walking down the aisle was the most memorable part of the day. We didn’t do a first look, and the moment when the doors open was what we had always dreamed of. Seeing each other for the first time in that moment, surrounded by loved ones, was so special. We also wrote our vows. Hearing them for the first time and seeing each other in the rich sunlight was magical!

Throughout all the planning, Amir wanted me to be happy and always trusted my vision. I knew I wanted bright and colorful flowers with rich greenery for the wedding. I also wanted something that would be a great canvas for the colorful accessories to the wedding. We chose for the wedding party to be in all white and tan, crisp and clean. I wore a Marchesa dress that I was obsessed with from the beginning. It fell in line with our Spanish feel but was also flirty and whimsical with delicate lace. It came with a removal peplum, which was so darn cool. My husband looked so handsome in his custom suit! I work for Trunk Club and style men all day, so it was amazing to finally create such a special piece for our wedding day. I loved everything about our looks as a whole!

Our advice would be to determine what your vision is and know what you gravitate towards. Whether traditional or eclectic, use examples from what you as a couple like in daily life to bring into your wedding. My mom was my right hand woman and planner extraordinaire — she deserves a prize! She has been creative her whole life, with a great eye and vision, she was able to help execute the best ideas. So, our other advice is: if you have someone in your life to help like we did, bring them on board.

How to Style Your Outdoor Wedding Reception Dinner

August 8, 2017 | nicole

photo by Kelley Deal Photography

Nothing makes us starry-eyed quite like an outdoor wedding reception dinner. From twinkle lights to long wooden tables, there’s something impossibly romantic about al fresco dining just as the sun begins to set. If you dream of dinner under the stars with your wedding guests, this post is for you! We’re taking a look back at our favorite outdoor wedding receptions to share the best styling tips to incorporate on your own!

Tall Centerpieces

The key to styling an outdoor reception is to fill the space as much as possible. Since tables generally take care of outward space, your attention can shift to decorating upward! Create visual levels and give your table some height with tall centerpieces such as vases or candlesticks.

Natural Elements

Tree slices, antlers, and fruit – oh my! The types of natural elements you can use in your table decor are truly as expansive as nature itself, so consider the vibe of your wedding and the space you’re using to choose a selection of pieces to make guests go “ooh” and “ahh!”

Luxe Details

It’s no secret that we love a good design juxtaposition, and nothing offsets an outdoor reception like luxe details! Gold flatware, elegant table runners and beautiful china and glassware provide the perfect dose of contrast to your natural setting.

Overhead Lighting

If you’ve set your reception beneath the trees, there’s nothing more romantic than twinkling string lights or dangling lanterns. Set the mood with whimsical lighting strung from tree to tree!

Hanging Decor

One of the most significant ways to make your outdoor space feel filled is by hanging things from above! Hanging decor creates a sense of ceiling in the openness above. From chandeliers to floral installations, the options for hanging decor are really endless!
