Thamzen and Charles exchanged vows on the Boojum Patio at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Their beautiful and intimate wedding reception was filled with smiles, happiness and lots of laughter! A sweet smelling desert monsoon shared the evening and gave guests the perfect desert experience. It was our pleasure to help Thamzen on her wedding day and bring together all the DIY details she spent countless hours creating. Most of the planning was done from afar with her mom Darlene in living in Puerto Rico and details were crucial. For Thamzen’s wedding flowers, she had visioned an elegant rose bouquet with a desert touch and shades of cream and burgundy. Congratulations Thamzen and Charles, we wish you life long happiness and love!
We styled this lovely wedding photo shoot at the historic San Pedro Chapel in Tucson, photographed by Snap Lovely Photography . We drew inspiration from the surrounding desert landscape and added a touch of elegance with gold details and details in this year’s color of the year: Marsala. Floral displays and bouquet included burgundy dahlias, dark ranunculus mixed with cream roses and rustic pink details. The bride wore a beautiful Tara Keely dress provided by J Bridal Boutique.
Thank you to the amazing and talented vendors who collaborated with us on this styled shoot!

Today we’re excited to share these lovely engagement photos from Soiree Bride-to-be Emera and her fiance John. These two love birds will tie the knot on October 24th of this year in Phoenix, Arizona and we are so lucky to be a part of it! Their engagement shoot is a true representation of their style and we can’t wait to share the details of their amazing warehouse wedding we are helping plan.
We love the desert setting they chose for their photos, combined with such chic elements and that DRESS! Kudos to Monique Hessler Photography for capturing these beautiful moments…And just in time for Valentine’s Day we thought it would be perfect to share not only their photoshoot but also their sweet engagement story. Big thanks to Emera for sharing the love. Enjoy!!
“John and I planned a couple’s getaway to Maui last October of 2013. The weekend before
our trip, we hosted a dinner at our home for my family. My mom came over with enough food to feed
our entire neighborhood, which should have been a red flag, however being Filipino we do not cook
less than bulk! In the middle of dinner, John excused himself from the table but never returned. From
our back yard, I heard “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum playing and I instantly knew what was
about to happen! What I did not know is that John had invited a few of our close friends to be a part of
our proposal! Holding candlesticks, as well as tears, we all listened to my wonderful soon-to-be fiancé
express his love and ask me to marry him! Those close to us who lived far away were able to watch
the entire proposal via Facetime. My now maid of honor also put together a video for us which
incorporated messages from other friends and family sending their well wishes. I could not have
dreamt of a more perfect proposal!” – Emera
Last weekend we participated in our first Tucson Bridal Expo! It was such a pleasure to meet new brides and hear a bit about their special day! Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth!!
Now, for our set up, we decided on a woodsy theme with a pale color palette of cream and sage with a pop of fresh green. Details included wood chargers, river rock filled vases, and handwritten name cards on muslin fabric. To keep a natural organic flow with a bit of elegance we mixed heavy amounts of fern, moss and eucalyptus with garden roses, soft pink peonies, and anemones. Jars in a variety of sizes and mix styles created terrariums to set across the tablescape. We wanted to give you the “WOW” factor with our booth and added a “floating” like installation for our custom wood Soiree Girls sign. We trimmed the 6ft wooden plank with a fern and eucalyptus garland and roses. then “floated” our sign with fishing line.
A modern twist on the desert theme.
