Jessica and Shane's Boho, Desert Wedding
Jessica and Shane married surrounded by their closest friends and family at El Chorro in Scottsdale, Arizona. They chose a small spot on property full of raw desert that was perfect for their soft, bohemian vision! Jessica wore a sleeveless, lace dress, and Shane was in a classic tuxedo topped off with a bolo tie and turquoise cuff links. Her voluminous bouquet was mixed with deep red tones and eucalyptus among the white flowers, accented with a beautiful eye-catching protea. Their first look was at their desert ceremony location in front of their arch, and Shane patiently waited with a couple bottles of beer for the two of them to enjoy together! The two of them standing next to each other looked and felt like a perfect match. Their excitement was contagious as they posed for photos and anticipated the rest of the day.
Guests arrived at the ceremony and were seated on wooden benches. Two triangular arches framed the tall saguaro cactus behind them and were ornamented with asymmetrical flowers that matched Jessica’s bouquet. The desert behind them the perfect backdrop, the couple stood on a vintage rug as they said their vows. The ceremony was intimate, sweet, and full of love.
The group walked together to Cocktail Hour, where the cocktail tables were draped with burgundy velvet linens and topped with bud vases that carried the floral theme throughout the night. There was no shortage of conversation or smiles as everyone gathered around to eat, drink, and celebrate the sweet couple.
Inside the Hampton Room at El Chorro, a long table was set up with burgundy velvet napkins placed perfectly on top of the chargers. A stunning hand-woven garland ran down the middle of the table with eucalyptus and deep red flowers. The candlelight placed throughout created a delicate glow around the room as guests took their seats. Everyone watched as Shane and Jessica shared their first dance as husband and wife; and the sweetest dances between Shane and his mother and Jessica and her father followed. The rest of the night was just as sweet—toasts given by their best friends, shared laughter, and delicious churros to end the night!
