We’re in ‘Hacienda Heaven’ today thanks to Rachel Solomon Photography and Duran Events! Disregard everything you’ve ever thought about desert wedding style. This elegant and organic editorial is full of eucaplytus, lace and green, gold and white details. Utilising the stunning outdoor area, the tablescapes almost feel a part of the grounds and we love how complementary they are. The perfect bouquet shape too for any fine art bride, this one is by Sarah’s Garden. Read on to see how this talented team created this beauty…

From Rachel Solomon Photography: “Shot at El Chorro Lodge in Paradise Valley, Arizona, we pulled inspiration for this shoot from the surrounding grounds, which feature lots of greenery, olive trees, bougainvillea and Southwest inspired architecture. El Chorro’s iconic setting at the base of Camelback & Mummy Mountains offers an authentic Arizona desert setting. El Chorro was originally built in 1934 as the Judson School for Girls and in 1937 it was converted to a restaurant and lodge. Clark Gable, John Wayne, Barry Goldwater and other prominent figures visited the Lodge in its early days. The menu offerings at El Chorro center on fresh, organic and locally grown ingredients – including herbs and produce from the El Chorro garden located right outside the kitchen, where we also shot a few portraits of the bride & groom. Our details are full of green, gold, and white, with a stunning long sleeved lace Allure Bridals gown, and featuring three different headpieces including two handmade pieces by Mignonne Handmade, and a eucalyptus crown by our floral designer, Sarah’s Garden. The calligraphy was designed by Jenny Sanders with Graceline, who also created our paper goods with wax seals and gold ombre wash, all fitting perfectly with our organic theme.”
