Kelly and Paolo’s Boho Tucson Wedding at White Stallion Ranch will definitely leave you contemplating an Arizona Wedding.
As a wedding and elopement photographer based in the area, I am no stranger to desert weddings. However, this one absolutely blew my mind with how dreamy it was. I may just need to hold my own wedding at White Stallion Ranch someday.
The couple met of the dating app, Hinge. As soon as Kelly made the jump, swiping right on Paolo, they instantly connected. They were very much into each other. Although they both were living in San Diego, Paolo had to leave two weeks after initially meeting for a military excursion. This meant that he would be stuck on a boat for an entire six weeks with no cell service.
Kelly was convicted that her only option was to “move on” and hope that when he comes back in a month and a half, they would see each other again. She knew how these things worked though was pretty skeptical. After only a couple of days, Paolo sent her an email that came as a very welcomed surprise! For the ENTIRE SIX WEEKS, the two sent emails back and forth talking about anything under the sun.
Somewhere in the midst, they fell madly in L O V E with each other and decided to make it official before he even made it back home!
WHEN YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW, amiright?!
White Stallion Ranch is located north of Tucson which makes it really easy for out-of-town visitors to come. Most of their guests all flew in from out of town and it was almost all their guest’s first time visiting the desert.
It is located right behind Saguaro National Park which makes the venue even more beautiful with all the saguaros, cactus, and mountainous landscape. It’s tucked away against a mountain and has the cutest little lodging accommodations right there on the property. The property itself has a lot of accommodations and activities to do if you stay for a whole weekend.
Check out, “White Stallion Ranch” for more information even if you just want to visit for the weekend with friends or your family.
They had big boho rattan chairs for their Bride and Groom table. To top off their bohemian decor, they had hanging lanterns strewn throughout. Their decor truly made this boho Tuscon wedding come to life.
Kelly ended up having a family friend do all her florals who is insanely talented and did a wonderful job. The florals had eucalyptus, fresh roses, and wildflowers with a color palette of green, white, rustic pink, and burnt orange.
They had Polaroids all throughout the wedding for guests to take pictures on. It was the cutest idea.
Out of all the weddings I have attended, I can honestly say this was the best-catered wedding meal I have ever had. It was catered by the venue itself. They smoked the biggest steaks I have ever seen. I don’t think a single soul left hungry! After dinner, a Churro truck drove up and had some of the best homemade churros in town! It was such a fun unique dessert idea that everyone loved. I mean, have you ever met anyone that doesn’t love a good churro?
For drinks, they served an Arizona local classic, a prickly pear Margarita which was a hit with all the guests.
