The Bata wedding was stunning. One of those weddings that pulls at your heartstrings in all the best ways. Sarah and Aaron were married at Juniper Well Ranch in Prescott, AZ. The venue is a cozy ranch nestled between the granite domes of Prescott and the sweet smelling juniper trees and greenery that covers the dusty northern Arizona desert.
Sarah naturally has an incredible eye for design. She's a textile designer and expert - her bouquets were wrapped in a beautiful ivory fabric that she weaved herself. Her bridal bouquet contained stems of dried cotton - a material close to her heart given her profession. She and I had a blast planning flowers together. We walked the local flower market in Phoenix together, picking the stems that we felt matched the sort of autumn, whimsical, romantic, yet modern vibe she was cultivating. For her color palette, she mixed some dark colors in with the pale pink colors of the bridesmaids dresses. Aaron wore a black tux, she painted her nails a rich burgundy, and we incorporated some dark maroon cat-tail and dahlias in her flowers. Given Sarah's affinity for natural fibers, it was important to me that we let the natural textures and colors of the flowers and greenery shine. Scroll on to see some images of their beautiful wedding.

A boutonniere can be like a tiny bouquet; incorporating all the elements and colors of the bridal party flowers.
Natural greenery is a simple and beautiful way to incorporate florals into the reception.
Pepper berry and hanging amaranthus achieved the drapey look we wanted.
The sweetheart table was a magical, lush display of greenery. I draped the greenery and flowers on the table and wove the stems into the wicker chairs.
