The best part of planning a Tucson Botanical Garden wedding might be the twinkle lights ready to illuminate your first dance, but the hidden gem is the opportunity for using the Butterfly Exhibit for your bridal portraits! We wandered the grounds in this gorgeous (like, stunningly magnificent!) Blush by Hayley Paige gown, frolicked like royalty while the butterflies swooped in to land for their closeup, and basically fell in love all over again with the beauty that is a Tucson Botanical Garden wedding portrait.
It helps, of course, that not only was the dress stunning but the florals were sublime! I mean, check out the touches of purple among those white roses! Such a graceful elegance, isn’t it? Evergreen Florals did such a fantastic job and I would fill my house with bouquet this exquisite if I could!
Having a gorgeous bride and a doting groom was just the best. I think they like each other, no?
And see? See? A dress that has swoosh is a good dress indeed!
There is no photoshop in this photo: all three of those butterflies are very much actually in this moment.
Lily and Layla Designs is a custom digital invitation designer who sells on Etsy and I love how perfectly the florals worked with the paper suite. It’s pretty amazing, isn’t it?
See, I love Arizona. Not only is it a stark contrast to my normal Pacific Northwest lushness, it’s also the home to both of my siblings and their ridiculously adorable children. Any excuse to hang out in the land of adorable nieces and desert sunsets? I’m a fan!
During this trip to Tucson I spent four action-packed days working with local wedding vendors to create three uniquely inspiring wedding sets to feature in my brand-new Tucson Wedding Planning Guide. (If you want to see a print copy of the magazine, go see any of the featured vendors! They have their copies now! =D)
If you’re planning a Tucson wedding (and especially if you’re planning a Tucson Botanical Garden wedding!) I would love to hear from you. Let me photograph your Tucson wedding!
This gorgeous inspiration wedding would not be possible without some insanely amazing Tucson wedding vendors:
