Hip, Modern + Minimal Tucson Desert Wedding

Hip, Modern + Minimal Tucson Desert Wedding

View this gorgeous photo journal by Green Wedding Shoes. We loved the whole vibe, color palette and natural textures that reflect the unique Tucson beauty. This type of style goes perfectly with a Carriage House wedding!


Emily + David have been together for nine years; they met through the Tucson music scene and their relationship has only grown since then… Around fashion, music, and their home: the desert. Inspired by those three things, they wanted to keep their wedding simple, natural and THEM. Emily owns an online based women’s shop — Fine Life Co., so she has a keen eye for details + decor, and has found that keeping things clean + simple is everything.

Right after David proposed last year (in one of their favorite cities, San Francisco), she got right to work planning the big day. She asked her friend, Brittany of Best Buds Botanical to create the most gorgeous florals; utilizing natural greens, air plants, wild florals and simple pops of color, she did just that. Letting the historic area of Tucson shine, along with their venue of Borderlands, E + D really nailed the whole simple, modern + hip wedding — which was so them.

Let’s take a look at all the gorgeous captures by Vienna Glenn Photography!

Tucson Named One of the Best Places to Get Married

We think it should be No. 1, but Wallethub recently named Tucson the 14th best place to get married in the country.

Not too shabby, since there were more than 180 cities in the study which compared things like cost-effectiveness, convenience and enjoyment.

Tucson outranked Phoenix, which came in 27th. #sorrynotsorry

The Old Pueblo also ranked 14th in cost and 12th in activities and attractions.

Here’s how Tucson ranked in other categories. (Keep in mind the following scale: 1 is best and 91 is average.)

81st – Wedding chapels and churches per capita

47th – Bridal shops per capita

42nd – Flower shops per capita

60th –Check out the full study here.
