One of my favorite parts of the job as a florist is designing and bringing to life arrangements that truly speak to the couple. I loved the creative thought Morgan and Eduardo put into their charming intimate North Central Phoenix wedding. When the time came to put the stems in place, I was so excited for the flowers to highlight all the couple’s thoughtfulness. It was truly a day of celebrating their love!
Morgan was so kind from the first time we met. I could tell how excited she was for her big day. The time between getting engaged and walking down the aisle can be a full of to do’s. There is wedding planning to begin with, and sometimes planning for your new life together after the walk down the aisle. From house buying to moving and job changing it can be a whirlwind of excitement!
There was no shortage of this excitement for Morgan. There was joy in her eyes when it came time to chat about the fun details of their wedding day. She was intentional in wanting to celebrate with their closest friends and family, as well as make everyone feel special. I would say they were successful from the reverent ceremony at the church, to their intimate reception. The details for each individual guest were chosen with love.
Morgan and Eduardo’s palette was filled with rich reds, dreamy blush, pops of deep blue from anemone, and various kinds of eucalyptus. Eduardo’s boutonniere included a simple burgundy ranunculus. It is a personal favorite of mine for a unique pop of color! Morgan opted for her bridesmaids and flower girl to have a current fun trend of gold metal hoops instead of bouquets filled with blush and ivory colors. Hoops are a great alternative to bouquets for the different style they present. You can still incorporate so many blooms and greens for texture and color paired next to a bridal bouquet. They are also easy to dry after the wedding day. Hoops can make for a beautiful keepsake to display, which Morgan decided to do. I loved this unique choice.
Her bouquet had some of my absolute favorite blooms included. Delicate anemones, blush and mauve roses, burgundy ranunculus, the best burgundy foliage, and of course some lovely eucalyptus were some of the highlights. I had a blast working in this lovely palette Morgan chose. The bouquet was a lucky accessory to such a beautiful and sweet bride Morgan was.
After their beautiful church ceremony, the couple held their reception on The Orchard’s outside lawn. They served delicious eats from the neighboring Pomelo restaurant. Their menu and atmosphere might be a personal favorite of mine in Phoenix. Taking the celebration outside the restaurant made for an equally enjoyable time for all their guests. It is a great spot to consider for an intimate gathering. My team was blown away by their kindness also. Linda with The Orchard is one of a kind, and truly helpful. Her customer services is second to none.
Their photographer, Rebecca Johnson of Nhiya Kaye, was so sweet and great at her craft. She makes you feel so comfortable in front of her camera, and captures the authentic moments you’ll treasure forever.
Morgan and Eduardo’s intimate wedding was full of charm that spoke to who they were. Their guests enjoyed the personal touches the couple added to the day. Dancing on the lawn in the fall Arizona evening under an elegant chandelier is a sweet memory they will keep as their journey continues.
Considering an intimate wedding? Let me know if I can help with any design questions! Just because an event may be small in attendance, doesn’t mean the beauty needs to be also.
