Take a peek at Shelley and Blake’s stunning, intimate Arizona wedding photographed by Rachel Solomon. The beautiful couple were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend. Though the setting was laid back as the two sipped drinks during happy hour, sparks flew between them. Shelley fell in love with Blake’s gentle nature and sincere eyes, while Blake admired Shelley’s sweet voice and personality. The couple got engaged last year in June at Lake Powell. While paddle boarding among the breath-taking rock cliffs, Blake popped the question to a very unsuspecting Shelley who said yes! The couple celebrated that night during their camping trip with champagne.
Held at Troon North Golf Club, Shelley and Blake’s wedding exemplifies the natural beauty of the surrounding Arizona desert. Their ceremony was held against a backdrop of marbled boulders, towering saguaros and majestic mountains. A bright desert sky graced their wedding photos, while manicured grass lawns and trimmed desert trails marked the foundation for the whole event. The couple’s reception was held inside a bright ballroom, and played off of the spaces warm, neutral tones. Several large glass windows allowed for plenty of natural light to permeate the space for added warmth. All in all, Shelley and Blake’s intimate Arizona wedding played creatively upon the allure of the Sonoran Desert for a unique and lovely event.
