“The desert is natural; when you are out there, you can get in tune with your environment, something you lose when you live in the city.”

-Robyn Davidson

The Farm at South Mountain is one of our favorite places in Phoenix and it was perfect for Allison and Austin’s perfect farm wedding vibe. The gorgeous fall light was captured incredibly by Nicole Berrett.

One of my greatest joys in life is to pull together a creative team and conceptualize fresh wedding inspiration. I love nature and I feel like when it’s a more natural wedding, the aesthetic flows much more freely and beautifully. When Montana photography duo, Jesse and Karen of Danford Photography approached me to style a shoot here in Arizona, I knew the quiet patience of nature needed to be conveyed. Megan and Zach our real engaged couple have are getting married this Fall, we are thrilled to be a part of their wedding day!

Jaymee and Ben’s beautiful pastel wedding inspiration was perfect for an Arizona spring day! Following their traditional church ceremony, they partied the night away at the beautiful Palm Lake Oasis. The day was perfectly coordinated by Shine Events and captured by the super talented Gretchen Wakeman.
