As the leading wedding planning and event production firm in Arizona, the designers at Atelier de LaFleur have had the opportunity to work with countless talented vendors. For this stylized elopement shoot captured on the beautiful grounds of Hacienda del Sol Guest Ranch Resort, we had the pleasure of collaborating with celebrated film photographer Elyse Hall, whose work has been featured on Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Phoenix Bride and Groom among a variety of other publications. The ceremony and reception sites were adorned with sheepskin pillows, white ribbed poufs, cowhide rugs, an arbor overflowing with desert plants, bouquets and centerpieces filled with cacti and agaves, and wooden and gold accents throughout. With these elements, we were able to celebrate the native vegetation of the Tucson desert in the most elegant of ways. Thank you to all of our vendors in contributing to a shoot we come back to again and again.

How perfect was the wedding we styled at the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain? Well...everyone knows how special it is to see a desert rainbow. Now picture the heavens opening up and a rainbow shining down on you during your wedding ceremony. Darryl and Bill were blessed to exchange their vows during a magical desert rain shower and Hammond Preuss Photography captured their special moment.

For this New Orleans style wedding, the couple wanted to stay as eco- friendly as possible. For the centerpieces we planted different varieties of succulents, and added some beautiful fresh floral. Each place setting was a different type of planted aloe, which doubled as the guests wedding favor. For the brides bouquet we used a mix of orchids, roses, succulents, anemones and wax flower. The groom is the owner and chef of The Parish (a southern fusion gastropub) so we used fresh herbs along with succulents, and tied them together with moss to represent the bayou of Louisiana.

Last week we hosted a floral design class at the atelier! Given as a holiday gift by their husbands, these lucky ladies got to get their hands dirty and make some very advanced floral arrangements. They learned how to use the tools of the trade, how to cut and handle floral, as well as taping and wiring of succulents.
Interested in taking a floral workshop? We have a two-week series of classes coming to Atelier de LaFleur in August. This Foundation workshop includes eight design classes, a field trip to a local plant nursery and event styling/designing your own dinner party for 12 guests.The last class of the series is an introduction to tablescaping—a class in which we create two table settings, one minimalist and the other a country style, to teach how to combine flowers and table décor together . For more information on the Foundation Workshop, visit our website www.lafleurplantscapes.com and click on 'Atelier'.

We recently styled a wedding out at Aqua Linda Farms in Amado Az. Our inspiration for the floral was to design arrangements and bouquets that complemented the brides sash. Not only did we design some beautiful and unique floral, but also installed decor and linens as well.
This New England couple rang in the new year with "I do!" Great views at the Ritz Carlton, two adorable french bulldogs, beautiful fresh flora, and fireworks to end the night...what more could you ask for?

The lovely Tanque Verde Guest Ranch...yes we've styled quite a few events at this venue and we think it's because their clients love our design aesthetic. Clean, natural, modern yet classic, eco-friendly floral design.
In light of the current Arizona Senate bill allowing businesses to discriminate against our LGBTQI brothers and sisters, we felt compelled to share one of our recent same-sex weddings. We are a downtown Tucson business that fully supports and is willing to serve our community regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender and disability.
This story is so close to home because it starts with one of our own, Amelia, Lead Designer and Manager of Atelier de LaFleur who recently married her best friend and partner in life Callie. These two beautiful women met in the bay area 9 years ago and this summer they decided to tie the knot.
It was very important to both of them to create a ceremony that portrayed their spiritual beliefs. They specifically wanted to create an experience where everyone would feel included and the importance of the day would fill their guests hearts with unconditional love.
Guests were seated in a spiral and the wedding rings were blessed by passing them around to family and friends.They burned sage, called in the four directions of the Cherokee medicine wheel, the Seven Jewish Blessings were revised to represent their same-sex marriage and they displayed a ancestor altar.
Every detail of the ceremony and reception was styled by Amelia. Hand-crafted banners, table numbers and party favors were made by family and friends and decor props were provided by LaFleur.
Amelia designed a bouquet that included hand picked cotton from a field in Alabama, dahlias, poppy pods, delphiniums and lace leaf dusty miller.
Scout (American Bulldog), Luna (Olde English Bulldog), and Shelby (Olde French Bulldog) participated in the ceremony as ring bearers and additional entertainment throughout the evening.
LaFleur feels so honored to feature Amelia and Callie's wedding and we strongly believe their message of love and acceptance is universal. We will continue to support same sex weddings, serving the entire Tucson community.

WOW...I had no idea...2013 would exceed my expectations in every way! I am so thankful for my beautifully talented and extremely dedicated team. There's a standing joke that I require four things to get an internship or position with our firm ...
- Comfortable cowboy boots
- A little black dress
- Red lipstick
- The ability to lift 60 lb. in a dress, boots with red lipstick on and not bitch about it.
I hired all of my designers serendipitously. They are the happy accidents that every employer wishes for. I feel so blessed to design along side them every week. Thank you- Amelia, Brittany, Megan, Lizzy, Nicole and Claire
