Chic & Organic Wedding ~ Marriott Camelback Inn Resort Wedding ~ Scottsdale, Arizona

We were so thrilled to design this wedding for our Washington, DC clients who celebrated their Indian destination wedding in April 2013 at Marriott’s Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, AZ.  With one of the most magnificent backdrops in the world as our starting palette, the bride just had one requirement– the decor had to be chic and organic.  The traditional day before wedding Sangeet celebration was held in a location looking up at the landmark Camelback Mountain.  Design elements such as low wooden tables, pillows and colored glass were used as traditional accents and filled with very simple, yet organic orchids and field flowers to blend into the desert springtime environment.  And of course, lots of paper lanterns and gold bangles. The wedding ceremony’s focus was the “mandap” or the Indian wedding canopy.  Filled with branches and hand made birchwood flowers, the design extended into the aisle for a very organic look.   The chic decor displayed at the reception was designed with natural grapewood branches on contemporary glass vases and was accented with various shades of pink peonies and roses for a romantic French look.  Images by Sameer Soorma
