Cristina + John – Cave Creek Wedding – October 27, 2012


Cristina and John were married on Saturday, October 27th, 2012 at a private residence in Cave Creek. The bride wore a vintage Ivory fitted satin dress with pewter crystal beading. Cristina carried a slightly cascading, hand tied bouquet of champagne Quicksand roses, ivory Patience garden roses, scabiosa pods, Dusty Miller, blue thistle, olive foliage, cotton blossoms, and seeded eucalyptus berries.


The bridal party included seven flower girls, who each wore a beautiful floral halo of ivory spray roses, white wax flower and Italian ruscus with ivory satin ribbon trails.


John wore a boutonniere of blue thistle and a scabiosa pod with Dusty Miller and simple foliage and a black satin ribbon stem wrap.  The Best Man and the groom’s father each wore boutonnieres designed with a single ivory spray rose and were accented with either thistle or scabiosa pods.
