Many young girls daydream of that perfect fairytale wedding: a dazzling dress, a dashing groom, and a sparkling getaway carriage that leads the two of you off to your honeymoon under a blanket of stars and fireworks. We took a nod from these youthful ideas and brought to life our childhood fantasy through the use of a pastel palette. These playful hues are perfect for any Arizona wedding as they complement the natural cool tones of the desert. Instead of going with stark, loud colors, a pastel wedding palette combined with natural sunlight will create a welcoming atmosphere that exudes strength and beauty. As a bonus – pastel colors will flatter every skin tone and be perfect for that ombre bridesmaid look that is popping up in wedding albums.
