Spanish Inspired Styled Shoot

When April from April Maura Photography reached out to us and asked us to be a part of her Spanish Styled Shoot, we had to say YES! The photos of Chris + Blankita from April Maura Photography has our whole team swooning behind our computer screens. We love getting to work with April, she kills it every time!

We feel so lucky to have been able to provide Blankita’s gorgeous dress for her! No doubt, it was the perfect choice for this particular shoot. Vintage, lace and of course, there’s that lovely Spanish flair to it! The Mantilla veil she wore added something really special to her ensemble as well! Not to mention, how great Chris’ blue suit coordinated with her Brilliant Bridal dress. Big thanks to All Done Up Salon for getting  Blankita’s hair and makeup ready to go!

Of course, when we needed to choose a Spanish-like venue, The Royal Palms in Scottsdale instantly came to mind! The Spanish inspired features made incorporating those bright colors in the florals so much fun, and so easy! A well deserved kudos goes to to Heritage Flowers AZ for designing the most beautiful flower arrangements! From her bouquet, to his boutonniere and the altar— all we have to say is WOW! Lauren’s designs were bold, romantic, and a breath of fresh air!

Lastly, we couldn’t think of a more stunning couple to tie all these details together! Chris + Blankita looked downright incredible! The chemistry between the two made our jobs as wedding professionals so painless and most importantly... Fun! See below some of our favorites from the day!

Brilliant Bridal Arizona featured in the newest Phoenix Bride and Groom Magazine!

We are so honored to be featured in the newest issue of Phoenix Bride and Groom Magazine!  In March we joined forces with some incredible local wedding professionals to create a beautiful desert inspired styled wedding shoot. The concept was the vision of Tracy from Fully Alive Photography who's photography made the handiwork of all the other contributors absolutely shine.  We live in such a unique geographic area that has it's own one of a kind beauty.  Rather than hunting for an oasis in the desert, this spread in Phoenix Bride and Groom inspires couples to plan a wedding that lets the beauty of our Arizona desert be front and center.  We promise that with our mountains and cacti as your backdrop, your wedding won't look like every other image on Pinterest!

Tracy asked us to bring wedding dresses and bridal accessories with a bohemian or boho chic vibe.  Both featured bridal gowns were sold at Brilliant Bridal for under $1000 proving that you can have the latest on trend bridal looks with out breaking the bank!  The backless dress is discontined Alfred Angelo dress and the sleeved gown is a private label style.  (Please note: both of these dresses have since sold.  If you're looking for this style we would love to help you find something similar!)

Make sure to pick up the latest issue of Phoenix Bride in Groom since these images really pop when you see them on the printed page, but here are few sneak peeks of this fabulous desert inspired styled shoot.
