Julie and Joseph

Wednesday, August 17, 2011























If you're like me, you have a few favorite colors. I love the freshness of white, the flirtatious nature of red and a regal touch of navy blue, but there's a soft spot in my heart for berry shades–one that's been on display this week! So when I thought of the perfect wedding for a week of berry patch inspiration, Julie and Joseph's was the only celebration suitably decked out in rich, romantic raspberry!

The couple was married at L'Auberge de Sedona in Sedona, AZ, against a backdrop of red rock. The bride wore a trumpet gown by Paloma Blanca while her sweetheart chose a classic charcoal three piece suit. After a simple outdoor ceremony, guests dined en plein air beneath a curtain of twinkling stars.

A mounted canvas and paints served as the guestbook, and celebrated the bride's chosen profession, art. Sandy Walker of In Awe Weddings & Events helped to bring the couple's whimsical, romantic style to life, while Flowers with Flair created lush arrangements in shades of wine, ivory and blush. The couple served Joseph's favorite coconut-covered cake from Sedona Cake Couture and danced away the evening under strings of paper lanterns. On hand were Kitty and Craig of Twin Lens, who captured this joyful celebration and generously agreed to let me feature their gorgeous work!
