You’re Gonna Wanna Copy The Rich Color Palette in This Desert Elopement Inspiration at Sycamore Canyon Trails

The desert vistas, golden meadows, and red dusty hills of Sycamore Canyon Trails was the prefect setting for this wildly romantic elopement shoot created and captured by Melissa Rey Photo and a talented team of local vendors. The newlyweds wanted to re-document their wedding day using elements and décor from their wedding, creating a bohemian oasis in the stunning Arizona desert. An inspirational color palette of juicy reds, rusty oranges, rich gold-yellows, and antique ivory was featured throughout the floral décor, arranged by Sweet Blooms and Co, and sweetheart table full of dried pampas grass, hanging macramé, and gold details. The star of the show was the fabulous single-tiered wedding cake created by Sweet and Lovely Co, dripping with honey and topped with heaping pomegranates, figs, and berries. We love how much fun this couple had smoking cigars and popping champagne in their elegant desert refuge!

  1. Where do I find this wedding dress? I love it!

  2. You’re right, I am! Love the bursts of red in the dusty neutrals, and honestly I’m not usually a fan of smokebombs but that one just worked.
