We were ecstatic when Jonathan & Amanda asked our team to plan and capture their intimate destination wedding at The Vally of Fire in Nevada. Danielle Harris Photography and Bridget Davis Events couldn't wait to make their wedding day dreams come true.
The Valley of Fire State Park is famous for it's red clay, Aztec sandstone outcrops pictured below . The red clay sandstone is surrounded by distant and towering beige and grey mountains of limestone. When searching for a destination wedding location and Amanda stumbled upon photos of the Vally of Fire, she was captivated. She instantly knew this was where her and Jonathan would travel to say, "I Do".
The classic and modern invitations were a a great preview of the ceremony backdrop, where towering red sandstone meets vast, blue desert skies. Including prism shapes and blush, eluding the geometric shapes of the gorgeous floral of desert flowers. Elite Floral Events included pops of yellow and an abundance of greenry to stand out against the red and blue of the open desert scene.
The groom's style in a bright blue suit popped beautifully against the sandstone back drop. We love that he chose not to don a tie, given the extreme heat and sand winds, the relaxed feel of his look is so GQ. Amanda's A-line gown couldn't have been more perfect, with delicate beading at the shoulders and our jaws dropped when the flowing skirt was captured by the wind. It paired perfectly with her long golden curls.
