Bright and Colorful Wedding at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale

Evan and Leslie’s love story began in New York City on a blind date set up by a mutual friend 5 years ago. They instantly hit it off and years later traveled across the country for their November nuptials in Arizona. Their bold and vibrant wedding at The Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale Troon North wowed with the use of purple, lavender and blue florals.  An incredible team of vendors came together to create the unique and fun vibe that matched the bride and groom’s personalities to a tee. Charlee, from Signature Events by Charlee Geisler, planned the entire day perfectly, while Eyes2See Photography captured every detail, laugh and tear shed.

Real Wedding: Tara & Jeff

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.

Real Wedding: Julia & Peter At The Phoenix Art Museum

A museum wedding always carries a sense of elegance and class for couples who chose to celebrate their big day surrounded by timeless pieces of artwork. This wedding, planned by Outstanding Occassions at the Phoenix Art Museum, was a timeless classic!  Absolutely one of our favorites for its romance and beauty.  The day and details were all so perfectly captured by Mike Olbinski Photography.  One of our absolute favorites!  The sculpture lawn, where the ceremony took place, was transformed with bold florals and romantic candlelight that softly lit the aisle. The color palette was carried into the reception decor where guests enjoyed the sounds from a live band and danced the night away.  It’s hard not to be stunned by the images and beauty captured.  We just adore the images and all of the emotion they convey. This wedding is one we will never forget!

The Life Of A Bride-To-Be Part 4: Timeless Floral Designs

Finding a florist for your wedding is one of the most important vendors to find, connect with and trust their creativeness! Can you imagine images from the reception without centerpieces or a bride without her bouquet? Of course not. Flowers are one of the constants that have remained in the wedding world since Day One. Now I may of had it easy when deciding on a florist for my wedding since I work for Your Event Florist. However, Kevin and Shawna (owners) never once pressured me into using them. Let’s face it though, after working for them for over a year I knew that no one else could even come close to executing my wedding day vision better than the Your Event Florist design team.

Going into my consultation with Kevin was really exciting for me! I invited both my mom and mother-in-law to be as well so they could be a part of the process. Working in their front office as their Social Media Coordinator, I had never seen Kevin on the “vendor” side, so this was a new experience.  To begin the process, so they could see what I wanted, what I liked, they suggested I bring in inspiration photos of floral and style of decor to be able to visualize my design aesthetic.  That is what makes them stand out, in my opinion based on my other friends experiences with different vendors when they were planning their wedding, they never told me what I wanted, they listened to what ideas I had and then expanded on them.


Now being a part of the wedding industry, I knew right away that I didn’t want a Pinterest-clone wedding. I wanted something one-of-a-kind, full of glamour and fun. Kevin was so fantastic at understanding my ideas; he took bits and pieces of the designs and flowers I would describe and put into words exactly what I wanted! I never doubted his skills, but being on the “Bride” side totally solidified just how talented of a designer he truly is. The two moms present were completely blown away by the meeting and were so thrilled to see Kevin took the time to talk individually about their special components, as well as important family members.

After receiving my final floral proposal, I am even more excited for my wedding day! It’s everything I could have ever dreamed. Kevin’s designs will definitely ensure my day will be unique and even more spectacular than I imagined and my bridal bouquet – I can’t even – it is going to be so gorgeous  (I may not put it down all night). One word of advice to all the Brides To Be out there – allow yourself to go into your floral design consult with an open mind, trust in whomever you select for their talent and creativeness and you will have no regrets!  Of course, my hope is that everyone uses Your Event Florist, so they too get to experience what I did!

Vendor Spotlight: Blue Eyes Productions

Everyone says that your wedding day goes by in the blink of an eye. Photographers have become our second set of eyes for these special moments but there is a rising trend of hiring a videographer to film weddings! Videographers provide a different view of the day, their art captures actions and feelings through the emotional stories they tell through their lens. We have never seen a wedding day trailer that didn’t make us tear up, making it mission accomplished by the many videographers of the wedding world!

BEP-2 (1)

Blue Eyes Productions is a videography company based in Scottsdale, traveling country wide capturing love stories and special moments. We wanted to take some time to get to know the company and get an industry insight into the growing role of videography in the wedding world.

Owner Sarah Henry gave us some background on Blue Eyes Productions that she co-owns with her fiancé,

6 years ago my sister was getting married and I was helping her plan her wedding. During one of our conversations I asked her if she was going to hire a videographer and she said no because she already had a great photographer. I was shocked! I was currently finishing my Master’s Degree in Digital Cinema and spent years producing, shooting and editing videos, so I knew the value of videography. I reminded the soon-to-be bride that photographs weren’t going to capture her vows or the toasts, or even my inevitable tears throughout the day…which happened when she put on her dress, when I tried to give a speech in the limo and when my dad gave his toast at the reception! (I’m a sucker for weddings!) Finally, she agreed to let Kyle, my now fiancé, and I shoot and edit her video for her. To this day she still thanks us for capturing her wedding day and says it was the best gift anyone ever gave them! The excitement from her and her husband is the very reason we started shooting weddings and creating timeless memories for couples


What do people want to know about hiring a videographer:
A lot of couples want to know how the videography process works for the day. We work with couples to decide what is the most important events of the day for them and create packages based on that. We always tell couples that this is YOUR video, so we want it to be exactly what you want. If you want footage getting ready along with the sparkler exit from the reception, we will be there all day and capture everything in between. If you want a memory of your grandma on camera wishing you and your spouse a long and happy marriage, we can do that!

What can videography offer that photography cannot:
Photographers have always been one of the most important vendors you book for your wedding. However, videography offers something that photos can’t – the ability to relive every aspect of your wedding day, from the emotional vows from your spouse during the ceremony, to the toasts and first dance during the reception. These moments are a blur to a bride and groom the day of their wedding. Every event happens so fast and when you mix in the excitement and nerves, it’s easy to forget the special toast your dad gave you or the first words your mom said when you put on your dress. Unfortunately, these are memories a photographer just can’t capture. A wedding videographer captures those moments and allows you, your friends, family and future little ones the opportunity to relive your wedding day

Real Wedding: Dana & Braden

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!

Real Wedding: Lindsay and Justin

El Chorro is one of the most iconic venues in valley and this wedding was no exception! Now when life gives you lemons, you turn them into the focal point for a picture perfect wedding day! Lindsay and Justin’s October wedding was full of fresh designs and bright ideas. A huge thanks to Susie Crouch, owner of Everything Susie, for bringing in Bride Lindsay! We loved her laid back attitude and vision of a wedding day full of the things she loves most. The day was captured by Keith and Melissa Photography with Vee Creative designing the flawless stationary for the day! Also, don’t miss out on gushing over the gorgeous cake by Ruze Cake House, we know it must have tasted as great as it looked.

The Do’s and Do Not’s From Clients

Engagement season is upon us! We love this time of year, proposals are happening and couples are beginning to plan their I Do’s. Recently, Wedding Wire came out with a great infographic on the Dos and Don’ts from real couples on their vendor experiences. We are always looking for ways to elevate the YEF brand and after reviewing the list here are the top five thing we do best!

Most couples have a very vague idea of floral design and all of the creative things we can help them with! Making sure we educate our couples on the process is highly important to us and we love answering all questions to make them feel informed.

We adore getting to know our couples and providing the best service to fit their needs. No two weddings are alike and we customize our consultations and proposals for the individuals! “Cookie-cutter” weddings are not our thing.

We start off our booking process by sending over a worksheet to get to know the couple! Their needs and vision are the number one priority and this is a great way to get the communication started. Pinterest is a great place for ideas but we prefer to elevate what you may have seen to a customized design made just for you!

Supporting new florists has always been a passion of ours! We had a ton of support and guidance when we came into the wedding world and hope to provide that to our entire industry. Each floral designer has their own signature touch that we respect and admire immensely!

We only take one wedding a day to ensure that the couple is our sole focus! The right floral aesthetic makes for stunning images and expresses the couple’s wedding style. We’re here to give recommendations and ideas to ensure their dream wedding is a reality.

We are always striving to go beyond our client’s expectations! From your initial consultation to the final details, the Your Event Florist team will work with you to create breathtaking arrangements that help make your wedding or social celebration a dream come true. Wishing everyone the best this proposal season and we can’t wait to meet all of our new couples.
