Holly + Dan’s Intimate Al Fresco Wedding

Ever see that commercial on TV where the girl asks the designer to build a room around a faucet? Holly and Dan have designed this next wedding around something much more schnazzy: her ring.  The inspiration came from using the turquoise and blue opal stones in Holly’s amazing ring that was designed by Will McNabb in Flagstaff, Arizona.   The result was an intimate, dreamy design filled with twinkling lights, dazzling DIY, and a pinch of Southwestern spice.

From the Bride:

“I began wedding planning soon after the engagement and, considering the longevity of our relationship, we had similar expectations for the day. We wanted something small and intimate, with only our closest friends and family. After all the big decisions were made I finally got to do the fun stuff!  I had to remind myself on a daily basis, that DIY is NOT just for Martha Stewart!”


I am so glad it’s not!  (Especially, since I, for one, will be searching for a jalapeño jelly recipe the next second I have.)  I loved the dried flowers that warmed up the bright and beautiful color combination so perfectly and the awesome graphics that added a touch of vintage to a modern design.  And show me wedding with such perfectly mismatched bridesmaids that wasn’t beautiful and I’ll sell you the Brooklyn Bridge.  Maybe it’s the East Coast part of me, but I get a little giddy when I see palm trees with twinkling lights too.  The al fresco setting of The Grotto at the Arizona Center and the fabulous photography of Jennifer Halen Photography made this a wedding I’ll be staring at for a while.

Congratulation Holly and Dan!
