Desert elegance was the name of the game for Ingrid and Stevie’s wedding at one of Arizona’s most iconic venues, The Paseo! The couple’s event planner, Your Jubilee, made the couple’s chic style come to life with pink and peach floral arrangements created by JBarry Designs, mid-century modern furniture pieces, and rose gold details, all of which transformed the venue into a timeless, modern, and romantic desert escape. Ingrid and Stevie also added a few surprises — one of which made an appearance in their newlywed portraits — that added a uniquely personal feel to their day! These photos captured by Kayla Fisher Photography speak for themselves and make us wish we could have been in the desert to enjoy this incredible wedding first-hand!
Ingrid and Stevie
The Paseo, Apache Junction, Arizona
When we were starting to plan our wedding, we wanted a venue that really spoke to both of us. We both aren’t originally from Arizona, so finding somewhere that embraced the open desert was super important. We wanted an intimate wedding, and our venue gave us the feeling that we were the only ones out in the desert that night.
The most memorable part of the day was reading our vows to just each other. We wanted that intimate moment together before walking down the aisle; we felt that our vows and commitment were to ‘each other’ and wanted to highlight that. We wanted to stick to the tradition of the groom not seeing the bride, so he was blindfolded until I was hidden behind a corner, we called it our “first touch.”
We had a few surprises for guests! We wanted a fun wedding, so entertainment and food was a high priority! First, we had a beer burro deliver Corona’s to guests during cocktail hour! Second, we had a magician come and do close up magic for guests! Third, I’m obsessed with donuts, and my dad built us a custom donut wall — everyone needs a donut wall in their life.
Our best advice is to hire a planner! Whether it be a day of coordinator, a partial planner, or a full planner — do it! I absolutely fell in love with my planning team at Your Jubilee. They handled all the stressful moments for me so my wedding planning experience was absolutely magical! They helped incorporate all my inspiration weddings into something that was special and unique to my husband and me.
