Bold Southwest Inspired Wedding Ideas

Love at first sight is not a myth. It may not happen as frequently as it does in romance novels. But, it does exist. And, it doesn’t even need to directly relate to finding that perfect soulmate. It can happen anytime, anywhere and really for anything. Take these bold Southwest inspired wedding ideas for us. We were instantly struck by the saturated colors, dramatic lighting and the picturesque setting of the The JW Marriott at Camelback Inn in Arizona. Of course, the way Rachel Leintz Photography can tell a story from behind her lens is everything too. This bundle of perfection was styled and planned by Karen Podrasky, KDP Events and if you love a good star crossed lover tale, sit back and take in the gorgeousness that unfolds. A Rue de Seine gown perfect for a Southwest glam wedding – or perhaps boho chic may be your vibe, a naked cake by Sue Jacobs Cakes and The Wild Flower AZ on floral, this is about to ignite some bold Southwest inspired wedding ideas that are totally steal-worthy.

Bold Southwest Inspired Wedding Ideas

Inspiration for this team’s styled shoot instantly struck – see love at first sight – when walking into the hotel lobby.  From the deep, rich colors to the stunning architecture, the story started to write itself. The arched doorways, the potted cacti, everything was stated so boldly “this is the Southwest.” The original image that first came to mind for Karen Podrasky of  KDP Events were of an elegant, young, aristocratic woman. A striking dark beauty, in a flamenco-inspired, textured white gown. She envisioned her being the daughter of a Spanish Don in the 1800’s. Betrothed to a wealthy rancher’s son from Montana. In her story, the two young lovers were originally dead-set against the arranged marriage, but then are awe-struck by love at first sight. The editorial is aptly named “Star Crossed” to evoke a feeling of Shakespearean love and drama. You can see how we lost our hearts.
