We worked with Kacia & Tony on bringing their outdoor, Desert Botanical Gardens, wedding to life. We knew that they already had a great team of vendors involved. Their photographer for their big day was Jonnie & Garrett, who we always love working with. They have a way of capturing wedding photography that just makes our hearts burst. Their style & editing, on top of their great personalities, are just a few of the reasons why we highly (and often) recommend them to our brides and grooms. Kacia reached out needed a little something extra for decorations for her and Tony's ceremony, as well as some small detail pieces for their reception. We worked with Kacia to figure out what was necessary and what would fit within their budget. Overall, we were able to add a few details to make everything so much more stylized with purpose, without breaking the bank. Thank you so much for including us in your special day, Kacia & Tony. We are honored and thrilled with how beautiful everything turned out. Congratulations you two!

As always, when we share real wedding features, we want to share a bit of perspective from our clients.
What was your favorite part of the day?
Kacia: My favorite part of the day was the moment that I finally made eye contact with my groom while walking down the aisle. He had tears in his eyes and with that look all of my nerves completely faded to the background. My heart was pounding in the best way as he helped me up the steps, thinking that I couldn't believe life got this good.
Tony: My favorite part of the day was standing at the altar with all my groomsmen, waiting in anticipation to see Kacia walking down the aisle.
What were you looking forward to the most?
Kacia: Aside from finally marrying the love of my life (we had been together for nearly 7 years!), I was really, really excited for the father-daughter dance. My dad has always been one of my greatest role models and support systems and I knew that the dance would have significant meaning in my life. It got even better when my dad chose the song (does it get any better than Motown?) and asked me if we could coordinate dance moves mid-song. We got together to practice whenever we could be sure that everyone was out of the house in the week leading up to wedding day. We surprised everyone: my mom was in tears and I could hear my new husband cheering "No way!!"
Tony: I was looking forward to kissing the bride
Any other thoughts you would like to share about your day?
Kacia: I just want to share how grateful I am for all of the people in my life. I hadn't cried publicly until my bridal shower and it didn't stop there. It really is overwhelming to be surrounded by people who love you back and to receive so, so much generosity. From vendors, to friends, to family members, everybody came together to celebrate our love and make our day memorable and for that, my heart has overflown with gratitude.
Tony: It was truly the most amazing day in my life, such a beautiful venue and the decor was perfection. Every single tiny detail. I am so blessed to have been a part of it and to be married to my best friend.
