Whitney & Ty’s Charming El Chorro Wedding | Outstanding Weddings

by Caelen Demos on

Whitney and Ty’s El Chorro wedding was a classic and romantic fairytale. Take a gorgeous bride, put her with a dashing groom, stick them in the middle of the desert, and you won’t be able to take your eyes off of them. But, not only are Whitney and Ty stunning to look at, they have the kindest and sweetest hearts that touches anyone who meets them.

Whitney & Ty’s day started off with a with a windy, Arizona rain storm. It wasn’t until ten minutes before the ceremony when the sky broke open in a beautiful desert sunshine. It was like the heavens knew it was time for this couple to be married (If that doesn’t give you chills, I don’t know what will!). This moment was just a precursor for the beautiful day to come.

COLOR PALETTE: Ivory, Organic Greenery, Gold and Hints of Pink
INSPIRATION: Intimate, Organic and Elegant Celebration 

The ceremony took place at Whitney’s parents home, a place that she group up in and shared so many fond memories inside. The stunning view of Camelback Mountain in the background didn’t hurt either. Whitney & Ty said their I Do’s under the tree that Whitney had always envisioned herself getting married under, even before she met her Groom. The tree was enhanced with regal vases that stood on either side of the bride and groom filled with lush organic greenery and floral, but the natural landscape spoke for itself. The bridesmaids, each in a unique ivory dress, held uniquely composed bouquets in ivory, green and blush that added just another subtle touch to the backyard soiree.

After the ceremony, guests made their way to El Chorro to enjoy cocktail hour on the picturesque patio. In place of a guestbook, Whitney’s parents had a hand calligraphed map created for guests to leave their warm wishes on. Later this map was hung at the couples home together, as a memory of their special day. As cocktail hour came to a close, guests were asked to find their seats by way of custom chalkboards created by idieh design set inside gold encrusted frames.

Whitney & Ty love sharing meals with others, especially their close friends and family, so it was very important to them that their reception was reminiscent of an elegant and intimate dinner party. To keep with this ambiance, guests joined the couple for dinner and dancing on El Chorro’s Casa Paloma Lawn. Exquisite florals and a desert favorite, succulents from Root 75 filled each table in eclectic gold vases and pots, bringing together the warm desert colors. Each place setting was finished off with beautiful gold gilded flatware, gold rim glassware and hand watercolored menus by the bride herself. The personal touches didn’t end there. Whitney’s mom is an incredible baker, so we took her personal recipes to Let them Eat Cake to be replicated in to a dessert bar.

The night ended with a celebration led by the Midnight Special, and a grand sparkler exit sealed a stunning evening for Whitney & Ty. As a special favor based on Whitney & Ty’s favorite treat, guests took home delicious donuts! This shows just what a thoughtful couple Whitney & Ty are, always wanting to share a little bit of themselves with those around them.

Geometric Romantic Wedding Styled Shoot | Outstanding Weddings

by Caelen Demos on

Every couple’s wedding day is considered the “Best Day Ever” in their book, and is something we strive to ensure comes true for each and every one of our clients. With that in mind, we pour our hearts in to every detail we help them select and in turn becomes a day we will remember forever as well. When we were asked by Amy & Jordan Photography to create a styled shoot for their workshop, we jumped at the chance to create a “Best Day Ever” inspired design, but this time we were able to showcase our personal style, aesthetic and play with fun colors, textures and unique details we haven’t been able to use in a wedding…yet.

When we design for a client, it’s our goal to make it a true reflection of the couple, whether their design style is rustic glam, traditional elegance or a modern soiree, we want every guest to walk away thinking it was a true representation of the bride and groom. For the outstanding occasions team, our style usually encompasses modern and clean lines with romantic details, and lots of color; and as we pulled together our design concept for this shoot it featured just that. Here are a few things that inspired our design:

OCT 1 Geometric Romantic Wedding Styled Shoot | Outstanding Weddings

The ceremony combined bright hints of color and sharp hexagonal patterns to create a modern yet romantic setting.  Petal Pusher draped multicolored fresh tulips in hexagonal gold baskets perched on a white board to create an art installation like backdrop. The white covered chairs added a gentle touch with the blush floral ribbons, while the overflowing floral piece at the front of the aisle stole the show.

The geometric inspiration was carried through to the one-of-a-kind escort card display created by idieh design. Multicolored hexagons in shades of pink and gold adorned the wall, each holding hand painted escort cards. The staple of this display was the Best Day Ever wall adhesive, which sat in the center of the design. The thought behind this display was two fold, one for it to assist guests with finding their seats, and two to act as a photo backdrop for later in the evening.

The modern romantic aesthetic was truly was captured in the glamorous reception setting. The scene began with guava geometric patterned linens from Wildflower Linen, paired with a touch of sparkle from the crystal napkin rings holding alternating cotton candy and fuchsia napkins and finished with soft white chair backs tied with a romantic blush rose belt. The place settings were another opportunity for the glamour to shine through with hints of gold in each piece from Cre8ive Event Rentals. The glasses, champagne flutes, silverware and dishes added just enough shimmer to the table. Each individual guest experienced a personal touch including the hand painted menu and hexagonal thank-you tag from idieh design, to the hand brushed macaroon place cards from Ruze Cake House. The rich colored and romantic centerpieces from Petal Pusher completed the look which were set atop gold hexagonal cutout vases and finished with small gold accents.

As the Best Day Ever came to an end, Ruze Cake House introduced their intricate dessert feature. The “simple” white cake was finished with sugar hexagons donning shades of pink and gilded in gold. A Best Day Ever gold signature topped off a celebration no one would soon forget. This truly was the Best Day Ever!

For weeks we’ve been secretly staring at the images that captured our bright, modern and geometric design created for Amy & Jordan Photography’s workshop.

This design paired with a gorgeous bride and groom, and a room filled with eager photographers was even more than we had imagined. To add to this creative dream, we were so honored to have this shoot featured on Inspired by This last week!

Classic beauty with a modern twist took the day as Alex and Jason celebrated their love at The Boulders, a Waldorf Astoria Resort in Scottsdale. From their romantic ceremony floral design to their bright reception color palette, this Boulders Celebration was a day filled with fun and celebration!

COLOR PALETTE: Navy, Gold, Fushcia, Bright Orange & Ivory

The ceremony begun as Alex and Jason entered their ceremony together, hand in hand. The back drop of Duck Pond on the Boulders property, was enhanced with romantic and breath taking draping floral pieces created by Petal Pusher. As usual, Petal Pusher outdid themselves with a stunning floral runner atop the Fruitwood Parsons Table alter from Cre8ive Event Rentals, surrounded by pedestals of overflowing lush pastel roses.

After ceremony, guests made their way to Sunset Terrace at El Pedegral for cocktails. Cocktail hour was designed using the unique and sophisticated Dupionique Ivory, Isabella Midnight Blue and New York Nude linens from La Tavola. To finish off the cocktail hour, Petal Pusher decked the tables with assorted vintage cobalt blue goblets with bright pink garden roses, ranunculus and dahlias, with a touch of greenery. As guests noshed on hors d’oeuvres and sipped signature cocktails, they were also invited to step in to the festive Self Portrait Station, and leave a fun photo and note behind for Alex and Jason. When it was time to make way to the reception, guests found their seating assignments by way of a large escort display featuring vintage gold ornate frames with beautiful fuchsia floral tucked throughout.

As guests entered Tohono Ballroom for reception, it was like entering a golden dream filled with pops of bright hot pink and orange florals. Each table alternated between low gold floral vases surrounded by textured votives, to high gold candelabras filled with rich hydrangeas, roses and floating blooms. Chic and romantic linens from La Tavola alternated between the tables, featuring both lace and ruffled textures. Each table was set with beautiful gold silverware, classic gold rimmed glassware, and an elegant clear glass charger and dinner plate, finished with a chic navy napkin. We loved creating an environment that combined the traditional, classic feel while bringing a modern touch.
