This week we are featuring the Sedona styled shoot that our very own dutch intern, Stephanie, designed and modeled in! Stephanie is as gorgeous as she is talented, so we were very excited to able to help her out with her final internship project with Your Event Florist. Malone Sinclaire captured these beautiful ethereal images, with makeup and hair provided by the makeup queen herself, Heather Wilson. Stephanie’s designs highlighted the beauty of natural free-form and unique floral. The textures and colors were able to stand on their own against the backdrop of the gorgeous Enchantment Resort tucked away in Boynton Canyon. The stunning Haley Paige wedding dress was provided thanks to Schaffer’s. It was a truly magical day up in Sedona!
There is something simply perfect about April in the valley! The weather is ideal and everyone loves to take advantage of the warm days and cool, breezy nights. Tara and Jeff picked a beautiful April day to get married at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. The bride’s bouquet complimented springtime in Arizona with green mini succulents paired with white garden roses, blush spray roses, and light pink tulips. These pastel tones were carried throughout the floral designs and really popped in the reception! Trumpet vases were the focal point of the reception tables, accented with white hydrangea, blush roses, white lisianthus and light pink tulips with succulent accents. The day was pure elegance and we were so honored to be a part of it. Brittany Janelle Photography captured the gorgeous photos below.
While most of the country is winding down from their busy season, filled with gorgeous summer weddings, here in the valley we are just beginning! Wedding season picks back up in August and continues well into the spring, thanks to the mild temperatures and gorgeous sunsets that fill the Grand Canyon state in the fall. Looking ahead, we’re seeing lots of fun and original trends for the fall and love sharing these tips with our YEF couples!

Centerpieces need not look the same. Let your florist get their creative juices flowing and design an array of floral centerpieces for each of your guest tables.
Food and drink stations are a great way to intrigue your guest’s taste buds while showing off your foodie side. Try an apple cider bar or a smores building station!
There’s been a huge space neglected in ceremony and reception spaces for a very long time, the ceiling! This empty space has become a blank canvas for couples to add unique light treatments, floral designs or even draped fabric!
We cannot forget the Pantone Colors of the Year, rose quartz and serenity. These whimsy shades are perfect for softening your color palette on the big day. Try your “something blue” in serenity or adorn your flower girl in a rose quartz tutu.
No matter if you stick to the trends or not, Your Event Florist has the design talent to ensure that your wedding will be timeless!

With over 30 years of experience, owner Kevin Reed is more than qualified to be one of the top floral designers in the valley! Kevin’s passion for flowers started at young age while helping out in his mother and father’s flower shops in Ohio & Indiana. Since then, he has branched out on his own and developed into the designer he is today! We wanted to take sometime for our Wedding Couples to be to get to know the man behind the designs and find out where he gets his inspiration from.
To say we’re dog lovers would be an understatement! Furbabies are an important part of many couple’s lives, so why not make them a part of the most important day of your life?

Elegance is the best word to describe Dana and Braden’s wedding day! Bride Dana’s garden-style bouquet was one of our favorites this year, the free form style of the jasmine vine perfectly complemented her timeless wedding gown. Sassi provided a dreamy backdrop for the day that Joshua Killeen Photography captured in these stunning images. We’re wishing these two a lifetime of happiness and so thankful we got to be a part of their special day!
Rose Quartz and Serenity, could Pantone have picked more whimsical colors for 2016? We’re sure glad they didn’t! Rose Quartz and Serenity stand seamlessly on their own, but when you pair them together, it is pure wedding palette bliss! We’re totally in love with combination and cannot wait to see more couples incorporate them into their wedding day. We checked out Pinterest and some our past wedding designs to find some inspiration for design and we were not disappointed. Check out some of the magical ways to bring Rose Quartz and Serenity into your wedding day!
Glamor and chic came together to form a beautiful wedding day for Kate and Justin! The Westin Kierland provided the perfect backdrop for their December wedding, the weather was almost as gorgeous as the bridal party. Signature Events by Charlee put on this show stopping day and we love reliving it through the images by Marriott Photography. Kate’s gown was simply stunning, it sparkled all day long, almost as much as groom Justin when she walked down the aisle!
Let’s face it, few people can steal the lime light away from the bride on her wedding day! However, flower girls and ring bearers are some of the cutest additions to any bridal party. Their joyful expressions and pint-sized attitudes bring a youthful magic to a wedding day. From flower crowns to mini boutonnieres, we love getting to design for these little munchkins!
