Al and Donna

by | Bride, Flowers, Inspired Weddings,


Arizona photographer Melissa Jill captured this stunning wedding in Fountain Hills, Arizona. I’ve long been a fan of the gorgeous work of Melissa does and was so excited to see the details of this wedding.

I get so many questions about using Australian natives in wedding bouquets. While this wedding was shot in Arizona by Melissa, it incorporated some of my favourite Australian natives (or South African flowers – the two are often confused)!

Al & Donna had such an elegant and tender celebration, it was beautiful to look over the photos.

I love this shot – during the ceremony, Donna’s daughters started to cry which led to many laughs.

The deliciously gorgeous details- banksias, proteas and leucodendrons in pots sat on each table. The gorgeous flowers also adorned the wedding cake. Each chair uses a neutral wrap which compliments the flowers and the landscape.
