Color, color, and more color are the keywords for this desert oasis wedding shoot with Pinkerton Photography and Revel Wedding Company! The colorful creativity they brought together blends garden florals, preppy Southern details, and a citrus-inspired palette of bold yellow, pink, and peach. Lux Florist dressed the grounds of El Chorro to create a lush garden under the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, and the desserts by Ruze Cake House are a must-see for anyone who loves cake, yellow, and fabulous style!
The bride’s nude Valentino Rockstud heels added a little edgy glam to her romantic lace wedding dress from Mariee Bridal Couture – the cascading lace and full skirts were a classic look for the desert oasis wedding style, especially paired with her long veil! Hairstylist Ashley Petty and Ashley Doran Makeup gave the bride a glow for her wedding day, along with a vintage updo that framed her face for the most stunning portraits.
Arizona flower designer Lux Florist outdid themselves with shades of yellow, peach, and pink for the bride’s garden bouquet! The elegant grounds of El Chorro in Scottsdale’s Paradise Valley inspired the garden floral accents and the bold color palette.
Views of the Camelback Mountain towered behind the wedding ceremony, making the courtyard of El Chorro truly feel like a welcoming desert oasis. The epic flower arch framed the vine-hung white walls of the historic venue to add a splash of summer color.
