A little while back now I had the incredible opportunity to visit with the absolutely amazing team that makes up Sandals Resorts, specifically in a few of their Jamaica locations such as Sandals Montego Bay & Sandals South Coast. The purpose of the trip was both to experience the unique opportunities that each and every Sandals guest has available to them, as well as take in their incredibly cool Aisle to Isle destination wedding program. Its true, there are a lot of places one could celebrate their destination wedding. What you really need to do is ask yourself, do they offer you the ability to personalize your wedding in every single aspect, delivering with luxury level design detailing? Do they afford you the ability to just show up, and actually be a guest at your own wedding, versus running around for all those last minute errands and projects like so many do?? With 18 resorts around the Caribbean, there is certainly at least one that will catch your eye, and remember, get married at one, honeymoon at a another!

Infused by a vibrant jewel tone color palette, this spirit of equestrian wedding is nestled into the forest at Chapel in the Woods. From ceremony to reception, there is an element of whimsy that carries through the day starting with the dark wood dual door entryway that seemingly floats between the trees for the perfection ceremony backdrop. A special touch is the potted ferns that line the aisle capitalizing on their forest locale vibe. For the equestrian wedding reception, a table is set within the stables, while horses take in the affair. A mix of fuchsia, purple and turquoise bring the table to life in the form of details like generous blooms and linens. A favorite touch of ours are the horse figurine escort cards that welcome guests, the perfect playful equestrian wedding touch! Whether end of summer or early spring, the mix of bold palette, wooded locale and elevated wedding details make for the perfect mix!

Today's feature, from wedding photographer April Maura Photography, is all about injecting bold colors and bright details into a unique lush desert like southwestern wedding! Set at the Arizona oasis of Omni Scottsdale Resort, our styled shoot features not just vibrant detailing, but picturesque views of Camelback Mountain juxtaposed against the gorgeous green grounds. With their sprawling lawns at hand, the crew set up elegant reception tables dotted with details like glass chargers, gold flatware and glitter enhanced dove place card holders that provided glamour and balance. Florals & jewelry, in a wash of bold fuchsia, soft beige pinks and bright emeralds enhanced the southwestern wedding surroundings, injecting a fresh jewel tone vibe. Blooms like peonies, sand roses & astrantia were mixed with draped greens, chosen for their jewel like qualities. Pink sapphire jewelry served as the most delicious bridal accessory, adding that perfect fashion forward touch to a more classic wedding gown. The last detail is our bride's lace trim veil, one that beautiful echoes the southwestern architecture around them. Dialed up in all the right ways, even the most beautiful of surroundings can be enhanced, much like this jewel tone southwest wedding.
