Creative Ways to Tie in Arizona’s Landscape In Your Wedding

FILED IN: Design

Arizona is home to some of the most scenic views and eccentric plant life, so it’s no wonder that it is one of the most popular places for destination weddings. Over the years, we have had a significant number of couples travel to Arizona to celebrate their love. We enjoy seeing how these couples include aspects of Arizona into their wedding. We recommend hiring a local planner, someone who knows the local industry and can set you up with the perfect creative team and can keep planning on track without you ever having to come to town. Lucky for you, the whole Your Jubilee team is from Arizona!

Some other designs we absolutely love is matching your wedding colors to your cookies like what Maia and Brandon did for theirs to make it a little more modern. We even had some weddings create Arizona outline shaped cookies. Such great (and edible) souvenirs to take back home!

Other sharp ideas- Some of our couples have gotten extremely creative in bringing Arizona into their wedding day. You’ll definitely want to save these ideas and possibly incorporate them into your very own day!

One of our couples even incorporated “The 5 C’s of Arizona”: copper, cattle, cotton, citrus, and climate into their wedding day. In the early years of Arizona, these 5 C’s played a big role in the economy and many jobs were centered around them. You can see this theme tied in throughout the details of their day!

Local locations– Everywhere you drive, you’re likely to see some amazing mountains in Arizona. Some of these include Camelback Mountain, the Superstition Mountains, and other desert landscapes! If you drive 2 hours north of Phoenix, you’ll bump into some small towns with red rocks and amazing views! There are many wedding venues that exude this desert vibe and make for breathtaking photos. Some of our couples have even done a “Day After” wedding photoshoot. Who doesn’t want to wear their wedding dress again and take gorgeous, scenic photos!?
