An intimate wedding inside the historic Monroe Abbey

Married October 15, 2016

So this wedding in particular was a little different than most. Not only were we the florists, but we were also guests. Grace has been a close friend of ours for several years, so when she asked us to do the flowers for her wedding... well, there was no way that we could have passed it up. Grace and Billy are incredible people. Their energy is magnetic. They are creative, they are fun, they are goofy, they are dreamers and they are passionate, hard workers. They are everything anyone could ever want out of another human being. Their friendship is cherished by so many, and we truly mean it when we say that we were so grateful to have been a part of one of the best days of their lives. Not only did that day officially unite them both as a married couple, but it also brought together a group of friends and family unlike any other. It was a ceremony and after-party that so many will remember and look back on.

The location for the ceremony was absolutely incredible. The Monroe Abbey is a church that was built in the late-1800s. A fire was set inside the church in 1984, leaving it in complete ruins, hazardous and unoccupied for the last 30 years. So if you know Grace, then you know that she wouldn't have wanted it any other way. The more creepy and condemned the better!

After the ceremony, it was straight to Crescent Ballroom. This local bar and music venue has become a staple in downtown Phoenix. Many nights have been spent there dancing, drinking and eating burritos with our eclectic group of friends. We kept the decor simple with greenery, bud vases, lots of candles and, of course, a couple of bull skulls (just wouldn't have been the same without them).

Orchard Wedding at Garland's Oak Creek

Married September 25, 2016

If you have ever been to Sedona, then you know it's a beautiful place no matter what time of year it is. This wedding in particular took place this past September at Garland's Oak Creek Lodge. I had never been before and had only seen the venue in pictures. Though the pictures are stunning... it's even better in person. Between the mountain backdrop, apple orchards, lush forests, quaint cabins and the sound of the creek's water trickling in the background... uh yeah, you could say that we were super into it. Definitely made it hard for us to leave the next day!

Since the environment was perfect in itself, Nazlee and Jake wanted simple decor for their ceremony and reception. There was already so much amazing-ness happening all around, so we completely understood what they were looking for. We had a custom built chuppah made for the couple (thanks Nicolas!) that we decorated with jewel tone florals and olive branches to match Nazlee's bouquet. The tables were set up with simple bud vases and petite centerpieces. The colors stood out amongst all of the greenery, and it created for an overall youthful and whimsical design... an enchanting forest party!

The Monorchid hosts Brittany + Jared's boho-chic wedding

phoenix-scottsdale-wedding-florist

Married October 14, 2016

When we first met Brittany for a consultation, we knew that we were going to be a great match for this wedding. She and her now hubby, Jared, are a breath of fresh air, and they were such a pleasure to work with. We really appreciated their simplistic and easy-going approach to the entire planning process. They had an idea of what they wanted, but put total trust in the people they hired. That is not an easy thing to do for a lot of people, and we are thankful that they fully trusted us with our designs and execution.

This wedding took place at The MonOrchid, and for those of you who know us know that this is a second home to us. I think I even mention that in Andrea + Robbie's blog post. We've been a part of a lot of weddings within this venue. It truly is a great venue for those who are art lovers seeking a more non-traditional space, like Brittany and Jared. They're a super cool couple... and so was their bridal party! So many awesome people in one place.

Marsala-inspired autumn wedding for Andrea + Robbie

Married October 22, 2016

Wow! What a month... October really kicked our butts (in a good way). Now that we finally have time to breathe, we wanted to start sharing the weddings we were so lucky to be a part of. Andrea and Robbie's wedding was our last wedding of October, and we really couldn't have asked of a better way to cap the month. The couple was inspired by deep, bold colors. Much of their inspiration board consisted of florals and items within a marsala palette, along with pops of gold and deep purples. Designing the floral arrangements and bridal party accessories for this wedding was a treat. We felt that Andrea and Robbie's taste aligned perfectly with our style. In the end, we achieved a rich and elegant vibe that was fitting for the fall season. There is no better feeling than to see months and months of work finally come together! And a big thank you to all who were involved!!
