We are digging in the archives for this wedding. To this day it remains one of our most favorite weddings as the entire day was infused with bits of the bride’s and groom’s personalities.
Bridget and Scott met online in 2011 and were engaged within three months. You can tell by looking at these two that they were genuinely in love…. the kind of love that would last a lifetime. Due to the nature of Scott’s job, the couple planned their wedding in 90 days which put their wedding date smack dab in the middle of June – one of Arizona’s hottest months. Daytime temps easily soar to 115-120 degrees during the day so following the timeline would be critical.
We selected a secret garden on the campus of Arizona State University for the ceremony. This lush area is sequestered between four buildings near the center of campus and is a haven of lush flowering plants and tall shade trees that are home to many birds. The raised patio with outdoor fireplace was the perfect spot for this intimate ceremony.
The bride and her sisters crafted each detail of this wedding, from the bouquets and boutonnieres, to the aisle decor, centerpieces, favors and directional signage.
The reception was held at Old Main, ASU’s oldest building where guests danced the night away before sending the couple off with a sparkler exit.

How are you decorating your aisle?
It’s summer in Phoenix and the citrus trees in our yard have fruit! Lemons, limes, grapefruit, oranges – we love the fresh taste of citrus not to mention the bright, crisp colors.
We are completely crushing over this orange and green design we styled a short time ago for a showcase. This color combination can be completely dreamy or completely horrifying depending on how it is pulled together.
The antique spice cans, gold leaf bud vases and small clear milk jars were home to bright orange tulips, green hydrangea and cymbidium orchids. Accents of mercury votives, tree slabs and manzanita branches pulled the look together.
We think this look is perfect for a bridal shower, baby shower, or ladies luncheon. What is your favorite color combination?
