From Ashley Rae Photography: This session was inspired by a free-spirited bride with a feminine approach that showcased lots of succulents and cacti, and full of natural southwestern details.

We Love A Southwestern Table
For the tables, we spread cacti around in clear jars and cups to showcase their full beauty. We paired the table setting with feminine floral plates, white candles, and a large unique floral arrangement that was filled with prickly cacti and soft pink roses.
Raised in Arizona, Bride & Bouquet
The natural beauty bride, wore an elegant form fitted gown accented with a delicate boho headpiece to keep her refined and simple to the elegant southwestern theme.
The brides wild and unique bouquet was filled with lush greens and Arizona's best cacti. We wanted to showcase a floral arrangement that was true to her spirit and raw to our elements. Her groom was styled in a tan Nordstrom suite that complimented the Arizona light, paired with a succulent boutonniere.
