Spanish Inspired Wedding in Arizona featured on Junebug Weddings

I have always loved a good theme or intentional aesthetic. It is one of my all time favorite things to figure out for any event. Whether that is a full Greek themed inspired dinner party with Mediterranean food or a circus themed birthday party with just the right amount of cotton candy. This Spanish inspired wedding, from the minds of our bride and groom, leaves no detail untouched.  From the white balloons over each table, the colorful glassware, the aisle rugs and the beautiful florals, this wedding is filled to the brim with inspiration.

Lauren’s dress is unlike anything I have seen before. With a removable peplum skirt, she was able to take her dress from formal to festive with the simplicity of adding or taking off the addition. It was perfect, because this Spanish and colorful inspired wedding was the best setting for all things frilly… We can’t help but think of the salsa girl emoji… you know the one!

“Taking photos with Lauren… Pausing to think about this amazing moment in the desert, while looking at the scenery and my new wife”, Amir said, describing his favorite part of the day. While Lauren had a different moment that was her favorite… “Our tango and listening to the wonderful speeches. Hearing and feeling all of the love in the room, all the laughs. It meant so much to the two of us.” Amir shared that he was most excited to see Lauren walk down the aisle. The cool thing about their venue, The Paseo, is the large,beautiful doors that separate the indoor space to the outside. Most brides choose to walk out these doors as they approach the aisle. ” Seeing Lauren, as the doors were opening, and she walked towards me, was a moment I was most looking forward to”.

We love being a part of some of the most beautiful weddings and events in Arizona, but love sharing all the talented vendors involved more. This wedding had a stand out team to make this little dream so much more. Thanks for sharing your special day with us.

Burgundy Forest Wedding in Sedona, Arizona

As I am sure you’ve guessed, we work on a ton of real weddings, which we really love! We have always enjoyed being able to take our passions and help people make their dream event come to life, including their wedding. Weddings are such a great way to show your closest friends and family a unique showcase of your love! When you plan a wedding, you think of colors and different themes that may or may not make sense to you and your partner’s personalities. It is really cool to see just how a real wedding can truly showcase the couples personalities. I think that is probably my favorite part of working in the wedding industry… Actually getting to know someone and seeing how their personality shows through their wedding design and what it is they want to achieve day of. This next wedding is no exception.

We met Crystal & Garrett at our warehouse for a scheduled inventory tour. They had their ideal venue in mind in Sedona, Arizona, but weren’t just sure exactly what they all needed. We worked together to come up with what made sense for everything… Benches for their ceremony, later moved to the tables for their clear tent covered reception in the beautiful forest of Sedona. With colors in mind and the over all vibe of their day, they knew they wanted to add specialty details like vintage china and goblets to their reception tables, as well as specialty chairs to tie in the color (and to add a special touch for their first meal as husband and wife).

With the most beautiful images from Andrew Jade Photography, you are sure to swoon over these most beautiful photographs and find some serious inspiration with this beautiful color palate in one of the most beautiful cities in Arizona. Congratulations, Crystal & Garrett!

Insider Scoop with Konsider it Done

One day, years ago, Kris & Tyler (the husband/wife duo behind Konsider It Done ——> that’s us!) were driving down Arizona Ave. when they heard a sound that caught their attention. Intrigued to locate the source of the noise, they turned down a small, beautiful tree-lined road and found themselves at the gates of Tremaine Ranch listening to Leah belting out Taylor Swift lyrics loud enough to be heard over the sound of Matt’s circular saw. Ok, so that’s not how we actually came to know Leah and Matt, but damn if it doesn’t capture how it feels every time we see or work with them. We have grown to love Tremaine Ranch as vendors, another married duo, and as dear friends.  Every time we do a wedding or event with them, we feel like the lucky ones because everything they touch becomes pure magic…and we also just really love to hang out with them at “work.”

When thinking back on all the amazing opportunities we’ve had working together, it’s impossible to pick favorites because every time has been so great! We won’t consider these our favorite photos/events, instead it’s like a highlight reel of incredible memories made together and with our magnificent clients. These photos were captured during real weddings, styled shoots, and private parties.  Our events with Tremaine Ranch have not only happened in the heart of Phoenix, but have spread as far north as Payson, and as far west as Santa Barbara, California. 

Tremaine Ranch has elevated the aesthetics for our weddings and events in so many ways. Foremost, their inventory of eclectic furniture is fabulous. We rarely find ourselves seeking something more or different. Though, on occasion that’s happened, Tremaine didn’t hesitate to build or buy what was needed for those events. Matt is a woodworking magician, and is always adding new custom and unique pieces to their lineup.  One of the things we love most about their inventory is how it works with almost any style of event.  Every event we have done with them is able to look totally different while using some of the same inventory- it’s all about how you style it!

Pro Tip: Just because you don’t see it on their website, doesn’t mean they don’t/won’t have it (or can’t find it for you)– just ask!

We did a New Year’s Eve wedding that was one of the largest events we’ve shared with Tremaine Ranch. Over a year of planning, building, sourcing, and design went into it. From a planner’s perspective, we couldn’t have asked for more. Leah & Matt’s attention to detail, and determination for perfection lead to an overjoyed couple and an event beautiful enough to be featured on Junebug Weddings. Just feast your eyes on that donut wall!

Another way that Tremaine Ranch stands out is Leah’s nonstop sense of design. From planning to setup, she’s constantly finding creative ways to improve things. In a wedding world sometimes overrun by monotony and tradition, Leah breathes new life into old ideas. We love working with vendors that bring personality, ideas and creativity to the table (pun totally intended) and Leah brings it all in spades.  Whether we are creating new ideas for styled shoots, or designing and styling a real wedding, Leah is one of our FAVORITE partners through this entire process.

Thanks for checking out some of our “highlight reel of incredible memories” made with Tremaine Ranch. We’re sure they’ll continue for years to come. We’d love to bring you along too! We are still accepting clients for 2018 dates & beyond. Cheers to love, marriage, happiness, and LOTS of beautiful events!

Creating a Realistic Wedding Pinterest Board

If you’ve been on the internet that past few years, and hopefully not hiding under a rock, you’re familiar with a website called Pinterest. Pinterest is every persons bff when they’re planning a wedding. For our own wedding, we pinned so many great ideas that were necessities for our special day. But, what if what you love on Pinterest is completely unrealistic… 

Photographs are the best way to share what you can’t always verbally explain. I constantly ask our clients to share any inspiration pictures with me or grant me access to their Pinterest board for their event so I can better understand the overall inspiration they’ve found. Figuring out your color palette can be really hard, but photography really guides a client in the overall aesthetic they want to achieve.

Being sure to only pin those images that are ‘must have’ or great to express the vibe you want to set is key! Don’t get carried away by pinning every single thing you love about a wedding that you’ve seen from scrolling through your Pinterest feed. There are a million different ideas out there, but figuring out the right colors and setting can really make your event board one of a kind. There are going to be new images uploaded to Pinterest every day. This means that it gives you more than enough opportunity to change your mind. Find what you love, and continue on that path. It can be really awesome finding new ideas or trends, but it isn’t worth the stress of last minute changes.

Focus on pinning real weddings or events, and stay away from inspiration. One of the things we really try to do in any inspiration shoots we plan and execute ourselves, is to keep it real. We try to stay away from flower arrangements or decor that we don’t think makes sense. We love a good custom piece, but real weddings are not always cable to be customized. Pinterest is filled with custom themed decor or flower arrangements that are usually from styled shoots. One of the biggest reasons why we want to keep it real is because owning a business is no joke. If every client of ours wanted a 100% customized event, I think we would go out of business. Pinterest has done a great job at getting imagery out there for people to use and to help inspire people to stay away from repeat design. Just proceed with caution while you’re on your Pinterest journey.

And finally, we recommend following small businesses who who in the event industry in your city and state. Following their work and seeing what type of pins are inspiring them can really help you work with a team of talented vendors on your wedding, who know what they’re doing and can, in fact, get you the Pinterest wedding of your dreams.

Modern Romances Meets Desert Vibes

Nothing makes us happier than having an absolute dream team of vendors to make a real wedding stand out above the rest. We love working with vendors who have an eye for design, and are able to translate that design process into their weddings and events. Take Hoot & Holler for example…. Malori, the owner, designed this modern romance meets desert vibes wedding for Kate & Bill, the bride & groom. From the custom backdrop for their ceremony, to the napkin print on the tables, no details was forgotten. We supplied simple additions to this wedding such as the mix and matched vintage flatware, the blush goblets for water and matte pink plates! You don’t get to use pink plates for a wedding very often, so when your client wants to go in that direction, you would be silly to say no. One of our favorite aspects of this real wedding is the beautiful colors that were used for the floral. A lot of weddings on trend these days are very similar, and seeing such a bright bouquet changes that up. Speaking of the florals, that custom backdrop that was made by Hoot & Holler was utilized in two spaces for Kate & Bill’s wedding. It started off at the ceremony location, but during cocktail hour was moved to sit behind the couple for their reception. The photographs, captured by Melissa Jill, are sure to take your breath away. The way Melissa captures each and every moment with purpose is evident in all of her work. Keep scrolling to see more!

Peach & Pink Baby Shower Inspiration

Last year, we were approached to have our furniture & tableware at Soho 63 for this Peach & Pink Baby Shower shoot, and you know we love a good baby shower at this beautiful, historic venue in Arizona. From this shoot, our Garden Chairs & vintage Tableware collection make a standout. The images, captured by Meagan Gibson Photography, are crisp with the peach and pink tones that are showcased throughout this entire shoot. Adding in details like the macarons on top of the cake, the flower bar with all the most beautiful blooms, and the food with fresh fruit & honey, really set the tone for this intimate baby shower shoot.

A lot of people think that we only specialize in weddings, but the truth is, we do so much more. We love working on any type of event. Whether that is a bridal shower at your best friends house, a dinner party celebrating the return home from a trip, holiday dinners, or a baby shower at one of our favorite venues in downtown Chandler, Soho 63!

All You Need is Love and Doughnuts!

You know when you meet someone and you immediately have a connection with them, and think they’re just the coolest and nicest people in the world? That is totally how I felt when I met with Ally and her mom at our inventory tour meeting at our warehouse. Their excitement was overflowing and their smiles showed how genuinely wonderful they are. We were so excited to  work with Ally & Ryan on their big day! We worked with Ally on her vision for a lounge set up, sweetheart table and of course, a doughnut wall!

The doughnut wall trend has been around for a few years, but is really starting to become more than just a trend. More people seem to be doing the doughnut wall than not, and we are really loving it. With a small cake for Ally & Ryan to still traditionally cut, the doughnut wall was the perfect backdrop for that special moment. The doughnut walls are a great way to add to your dessert option, or keep as your only dessert option. You have no idea how many people tell us how much they really don’t like cake! Incorporating a fun detail that is also purposeful is something we really support.

These two have such great hearts and they love their friends and family so deeply. One of the things I think I will always remember, is Ally telling me about her best friend, Katie. I could tell just how important Katie is to Ally.

“On my wedding day there was a missing piece that could not go unnoticed. For the longest time even before I got engaged I would wonder how it would be to not have my best friend, Katie Wagner, standing by my side. It gave me a knot in my stomach and an ache in my heart. After I got engaged and the wedding planning began I knew I wanted to do something beautiful, simple, and meaningful to remember Katie. The simplicity of a white chair represented the grace Katie carried through out her journey with cancer and the pure joy she brought to my life as well as many around her. With all the other decor being mostly wooden I knew the white chair would stand out. I then chose to add angel wings that I found at an antique store and colorful flowers that would represent her joyful life and the legacy she left behind. Most everyone at my wedding knew what the chair represented but last minute I added one of my favorite pictures of her that her two brothers carried down the aisle which made it feel like she was in fact present in every moment of my special day. That chair followed me around the entire night and as I caught glimpses of her photo placed on a bright white, floral covered chair, I knew she was smiling down from heaven rejoicing with me! It allowed me to have a sense of peace knowing even though she may not have been physically there, her spirit will always be with me in my heart. ” – Ally, Bride

We meet with so many people who have lost their best friend, parent or sibling, and they don’t know how to handle it. I just want to inspire someone, if we can, that they can always be included in above and beyond special ways.

Ally & Ryan are a stunning couple whose love truly shows in all of their wedding photographs. Which, by the way, are the beautiful work from Luke and Mallory. They have such a beautiful way of capturing special moments candidly, we couldn’t help but imagine the music playing, the sparklers crackling and the joy that must have filled The Paseo for this beautiful night! Congratulations, Ally & Ryan! We are so thrilled to have shared in such a special day. It means the world to us and wish you both nothing but the absolute best!
