Andrew & Lindsay... November, 2011 part 1

We all go gaga over an AZ outdoor wedding,
and this one wasn't ANY different!
The weather for
Andrew & Lindsay 
was absolutely perfect, 
cool & crisp enough for a heater to take the chill off an 
AZ winter evening, not a breeze -- 
and as beautiful as the bride & groom themselves!
This backyard of friend is extraordinarily, well-manicured by the homeowner, 
making my job so easy to place beautiful things to enhance it...
we used every inch!
Guests entered on the west side of the home, and were greeted by an antique sign-in desk, and an area for 'advice' for the happy couple.  Straight ahead lies more 'stations' for guests to mingle, stay-awhile, or pass through.  I love to decorate with the guests in mind, just as much as keeping in mind what the bride wants.  I want the guests to find several places to land and feel like they're having an 'experience' rather than just popping into a come 'n go reception.
The pool is every bit as amazing as the rest of the space... and on the other side of that, is this gorgeous grassy area perfect for guests to sit awhile.  I love the use of chinese lanterns here!  The bride chose a blush pink, cream/white antique with a tiny touch of some burgundy.
This wasn't difficult to conceptualize at all.  
I LOVE every detail at this party!
Doesn't the L.O.V.E. sign look jaw-dropping on the
water feature of the pool?
I've been collecting quite a little bit of furniture to use for staging lounge areas in my decor... I never get tired of this darling sofa loveseat.
