The Beauty of Buttercup
This Bold Hue is No Shrinking Violet
In the design world, there is always great fanfare when the folks at Pantone proclaim the “it” colors for the coming season. Fashion, decor, and of course weddings, all take note when the red (or in this case yellow) carpet is rolled out. Come along and celebrate the beauty of fresh buttercup!
At just a year old, The Paseo may be the new kid on the block among event venues, but the mountain views and native cactus gardens here are as old as time. Event Planner David Twigger takes full advantage of these natural resources when designing a wedding scene that is at once pastoral and passionate.
The ceremony site features a rustic arch of bent branches, embellished with lively mums, roses, dusty miller and succulents. Have you ever seen a more festive combination of blooms? While the bride and groom are elevated (every guest has a good view of the vows!), guests relax in comfort. These are no everyday chairs! Upholstered sofas and settees, flanked by clever side tables create a chapel in the outdoors.

The fun is just beginning. The pavilion, complete with smooth wood siding and an expansive ceiling, is the ideal place to celebrate a wedding feast. The invitation, dressed in smart stripes of buttercup and slate grey, is sophisticated yet whimsical. Wood tables are anything but bare when accented by bright cloth napkins, natural table runners and gleaming flatware. With the light streaming into the pavilion, crystal goblets shine.
When the sun sets, join the newlyweds on the expansive lawn for cocktails at one of the chic tables under the stars. A stylish fireplace offers a cozy focal point: that is, if you can keep your eyes off the Superstition Mountains. Cheers!
