Danielle and Craig, who met in California but headed to Arizona for their wedding weekend, planned a classically romantic desert wedding at Superstition Mountain Golf Resort. Soft champagne and warm neutrals were paired with subtle pink and navy to make the day a beautiful celebration of love.
I couldn’t help but be intrigued by these images of Craig; Danielle tells us: Craig had wanted the new iPad, but he wanted to wait on purchasing one with all of the wedding expenses. I knew that this would be a great gift but needed to find a way to romanticize it. I waited until the day of the wedding to write a special note to him using one of the apps. My words were along the lines of letting him know he’s my best friend and how much I adore our love story and couldn’t wait to begin a new chapter as husband and wife.
Favorite Moment: The first look allowed Craig and I an opportunity to be alone and to share our thoughts and words of excitement. It was such a special moment that just seemed to stop time as everything around us afterward happened so quickly, and before we knew it- it was all over.
Danielle’s dad made this arch for the ceremony- so sweet!
The property is so versatile- I love how this image shows barely a trace of the desert but the next one shows the grandeur of the surrounding landscape; Danielle’s family stayed on-site at the Ranch House where they were able to spend time together the whole weekend; the couple even had their rehearsal dinner at the Ranch House the night before.
The decor was a blend of romantic country and desert chic; the lush boxed flower arrangements softened the room and added subtle hits of color; the BBQ dinner menu included tri-tip, ribs, chicken, corn, beans, coleslaw, & green chile cornbread (yum).
Favorite Thing: How well we work together. Our communication has always been right on par which makes for a very easy relationship.
Slightly obsessed with this all white cake- the texture and design are just so gorgeous!
Congratulations Danielle and Craig and thank you for sharing your day with us!
