Tucson AZ Wedding Shoot - Fine Art Film.

In Tucson, Arizona, this detail-driven inspirational shoot at Hacienda Del Sol is a showcase of Southwest style and modern, fresh accents. From the bride’s brilliant beaded gown to the soft florals balanced with cacti and succulents, this design pulls out all the stops for a bright, elegant, outdoor affair.

From the outset, the invitation suite incorporates a contemporary design with a neutral color palette.


The bride is a sight to behold. Her bouquet abounds with white florals, like roses and black and white anemones, and greenery. And it pairs perfectly with her beaded, A-line gown.


To complete her look, she dons teardrop earrings, dramatic eye makeup and a modern, elegant updo.


The groom looks stylish in a three-piece dark blue suit, matching pocket square and tie, and a succulent boutonniere.


They make a gorgeous pair in the sun-kissed gardens of the venue. The contrast between their soft appearances and the sharp angles of the agave plants and cacti is eye-catching.


The ceremony scene is created with tall wooden stands, a mixture of brass and glass vases, sprawling floral arrangements and plush ferns.


The outdoor fireplace is embellished with florals, greenery and candles for another photo-worthy backdrop.


The Hacienda Del Sol has many lovely corners and nooks that afford couples ample opportunities for beautiful and intimate photos.


The reception is set on the lawn of the venue, with string lights high above the tables.


Hearty centerpieces of assorted greenery and curly willow add height to the tablescapes, while petite cactus and blush roses add a hint of charm below.


To match the ambiance of the outdoor space, wooden chairs are paired with blush-covered tables featuring fresh touches.

The modern inspiration comes to life through the place settings, featuring clear plates, navy blue napkins and transparent menu cards that mirror the design of the invitation.


Sweet treats make a pretty appearance, too. The cake is a four-tiered buttercream creation, finished with a monogram in the center, gold leaf, and floral touches along the layers.


And for guests who want a small treat to-go, dainty blue cake pops are at the ready.


But no wedding is complete without one last dance, kiss and smile from the happy couple.


This styled shoot is an exploration of ideas. Don’t be afraid to mix wedding styles and concepts to find just the right combination for your big day. While the Hacienda Del Sol is awash with gorgeous Southwest inspiration, there’s still room for trendy and timeless touches to create a personalized design.
