their story

« go back


Nestled at the base of the Rincon Mountains, Samantha and Austin said their vows overlooking a meadow filled with saguaros. Their day was beautifully organized and supported by a brilliant vendor team. Wedding coordination was provided by Sarah Lee and Mary Ellen of the Tanque Verde Ranch. Hand calligraphy adding personalized touches throughout the reception were created by KCo Disigns. Samantha’s dress was a lace Watters Wtoo gown from J Bridal, who custom made her veil. Stunning floral arrangements made of desert botanicals such as olive sprigs and mesquite were paired with ivory flowers by Atelier De LaFleur, who pulled in the desert theme with tiny barrel cactuses and prickly pear cacti in the bridal bouquet. These cactus loving sweethearts even hand prepared a nopales for each guest to take home and plant as a gift. The sweetest touch to this elegant fiesta were the handmade Pan Dulce and Churros from La Estrella Bakery. 

This day, marked with dancing, happy tears and live mariachi music, brought us so much joy! Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Cruz!
