You might need to be pinched after you see these images from John & Cara’s rustic garden wedding as it may be the sweetest of all time. You will want to look back at their wedding day for inspiration on the perfect ceremony floral, full of lush greens and simple white blooms cascading down a beautiful tree that served as their ceremony backdrop. The copper, white, green, blush and blue coloring was the perfect complement to the Arizona Thanksgiving wedding. The laser cut candle wall captivated guest’s hearts and was a magical focal piece during the plated reception. They envisioned a warm and intimate wedding, so naturally they hosted it in the front and backyard of their private home, inviting a total of 28 guests. The couple’s true joy and passion is clearly reflected in this warm and moody photography by Paige Withee Photography. Since they kept the guest list small, John made the intentional decision to wear an item from the groomsman suits of his eight best friends who were married before him. Cara kept it simple and sentimental wearing her mother’s lace wedding veil, perfectly matching her bright white, lace gown. The couple loves a good donut and making their own beer. Therefore, it only seemed right to have a copper hanging donut installation to accompany the traditional wedding cake and a home-brewed pumpkin beer served specifically for their wedding celebration. Strands of bistro lights and candles surrounded the entire perimeter of the pool serving as romantic lighting for the first dance and evening. They met in San Diego, fell in love in Phoenix and were engaged in the Swiss Alps. Their love for adventure and one another is seen so clearly as they prioritized what was important to them and kept it simple celebrating with the ones closest to them.
