Our Southwest Sophistication styled shoot from the Phoenix Bride & Groom Summer Fall 2013 issue has been one of our most popular ever so as we get ready to say goodbye to the issue and say hello to our Winter Spring 2014 issue, we thought we would share the shoot with you, our blog readers! You’ll be inspired by the colors, elegant southwest vibe, and creative touches throughout.
Today’s inspiration post is the Rehearsal Dinner. You’ll find a bright and sophisticated color palette of orange and blue tones along with varied textures. El Chorro Lodge, a Scottsdale gem, is the perfect place to host a rehearsal dinner because of it’s gorgeous Camelback Mountain views, legendary hospitality, and delicious menu (the El Chorro Sticky Buns are famously addictive!).

Stylist and Conceptual Director Victoria Canada says this linen, the “Tribal Thread” in Sunset from La Tavola Fine Linen Rental, was a controversial choice that paid off- initially it was thought to be too busy but now, thanks to our magazine, it’s one of their most requested linens!
I have dreams about the party I can host, all centered around “Boozy Root Beer”! And how fun is the signature cocktail sign for it? Amy Wallace, owner of Page & Mason Invitations, is kind of an invitation maverick- she slices, dices, punches, stamps, and sews just about anything to make her invitations truly custom creations. Just wait until you see the wedding invitation she created for this shoot (coming to the blog soon!).
Your rehearsal dinner is a chance to officially welcome your VIP guests, toast (and maybe “roast” a little too), and mingle the night away. Play around with colors, textures, and menu choices to make it as stylish as your wedding!
