If you’re obsessed with cacti as much as we are, prepare to swoon over this desert romance styled shoot from Sweet Laurel Events. Soft and feminine colors in the delicate tabletop details are juxtaposed with the masculinity of greenhouse venue’s overflowing cacti collection, while gold accents and subtle pops of red are woven into the scene. Romantic floral arrangements from The Bloom Bar carry feelings of romance from the bride and groom portraits to the tablescape, where roses and cacti live in harmony atop gold dinnerware and crisp linens from Whim Hospitality. The bride’s dramatic a-line gown from Beatitude Bridal Boutique pairs perfectly with a bright and bold makeup palette and tousled hair. Gorgeous calligraphed love notes on mirrors bring a touch of whimsy, and two llama guests added to the fun! Cheers to a desert romance that gives us all the heart eyes!
