Shannon + Kevin

August 26, 2019

Coachella might have the lockdown on trendy and hip, but Shannon and Kevin’s funky-fresh take on their desert wedding takes the cake and puts the cactus on top – literally.  Wanting to create a modern take on a desert oasis vibe, Shannon and Kevin used a mix of tropical elements and funky yet contemporary desert decor to achieve their perfect wedding atmosphere. From their retro invitations to the bride’s holographic heels, all the unique features of the day tied into one perfectly meshed style. Staying in tune with their vibe, the couple chose none other than The Paseo Venue in Arizona, a wood and iron barn sitting at the foot of the majestic Superstition Mountains in heart of the Sonoran Desert. With the desert heat blazing and pristine mountains surrounding them, the bride and groom said “I do” in true Arizona fashion, following their ceremony with a romantic sunset cocktail hour. Twinkle lights and white oversized balloons hung above the guests long, wooden tables and the couple’s table adorned with a cow skull and native blanket. The couple made sure to complete this Arizona affair with a taco truck buffet, leaving no guest barren!

“When it comes to wedding photography, there is a whole lot of average out there, and it can be easy to make the wrong choice. With Morgan, we quickly realized how incredible her work truly was. Her portfolio and Instagram profile was an absolute dream, and we were really hoping we would get something even half as good as the other weddings. -We ended up getting better; our photos turned out to be absolute jaw-droppers! She captured every perfect moment between my husband and me and showed all the details we put into our wedding along with our friends and family with an artistic/natural twist. Our first interaction with Morgan felt so natural as if we were meeting with an old friend. She is incredibly easy to talk to and has the kindest soul. She asked all the right questions, prepared me for what was going to happen on our wedding day, and even helped me pick my bridesmaids dress colors! Morgan is truly a natural when it comes to photography. Hiring her was by far THE best decision we made when looking for our engagement and wedding day photographer! I still drool over every photo you took of us!” -S+K
