Today we are featuring another fabulous Real Arizona wedding from our new issue. We just love all the colors, the mariachi band, the decorated bicycles and all the little details. We are so happy to get to share it with you today! Enjoy. XOXO

THE PROPOSAL: Two years after they began dating, Stephen and Sara set out to buy a house together. “The negotiating process wasn’t looking great and Sara thought we would have to keep looking,” Stephen says. But secretly, Stephen had received good news from the realtor. One day, he suggested they go to the house to check things out, just in case it did all work out. There, he got down on one knee and popped the question–and told Sara the good news, that the house was theirs! Shortly after, friends and family joined them to celebrate and pop champagne.

THE RECEPTION Highlights included the speeches and the music–The Nate Williams Band played the ceremony and dinner, the mariachis (a tradition in the groom’s family!) played the cocktail reception, and the JJ’s Band played after dinner. Sara’s bridesmaids surprised the couple with a flash mob during the night. “They had choreographed the dance, recorded a tutorial and sent it out to all of the guests,” Sara says. “It was so fun to see everyone participating!”

THE GETAWAY: After using confetti in their engagement photos, Sara and Stephen decided to incorporate it into their wedding day as well. They had a confetti send-off, before jumping into a cherry red vintage Chevy convertible. They jetted off to Bora Bora the next day.
