Jamie + Brian | Desert Foothills Barn | Jennifer Bowen Photography | Simply Cinema | Wedding Design

Jamie and Brian wanted a rustic yet glamorous wedding in the desert – the perfect blend of their lives and personalities! Naturally, they chose Desert Foothills Barn as their venue – and together with Imoni Events- created that rustic glamor vibe that they wanted.

This couple is FUN – and they wanted their guests to feel welcome, taken care of and completely treated on their wedding day. No detail was spared- Jamie (the Bride) truly loved every single element of wedding planning, which made our job very fun and rewarding. From lush and romantic flowers, to a custom monogram, to a bacon bar at cocktail hour (YES WE SAID BACON!), a bag piper, a beer donkey and all of the bells and whistles in between – this was an event!

As a rancher himself, the rustic desert setting fit Brian (the Groom) perfectly. To bring in Jamie’s vivacious personality – we wanted to make sure to bring in the glitz and glamor that a Scottsdale resort would provide – amping up the sparkle in the dinner reception linens, florals and decor.

The bridesmaids concocted a surprise serenading of the Beatles, ‘All You Need Is Love’ after the ceremony kiss to be sung by all of the guests. We snuck these adorable cards on each seat (by Celebrations In Paper) unbeknownst to the Bride and Groom!
