In the heart of Jerome, Arizona, where the Mediterranean countryside meets timeless elegance, The Little Daisy Venue graces the desert’s wedding scene!
Lucky for me, I was able to experience this venue with Rebecca and Pallav at their intimate wedding! As their photographer, I can’t wait to share all the intricate details of their special day with you.
Pallav + Becca’s love story is a love affair that books are written about! And, at this mountainous hilltop newly-renovated, historic property in Jerome?! It was a picture-perfect wedding.
All roads lead to JeROME, am I right?!
Getting to Know the Couple Before Their Wedding at the Little Daisy Venue | Rebecca + Pallav
These two are an adventurous couple who thrive in the great outdoors.
When they first crossed paths and kindled their romance, they were at a pretty cool event known as “Skip the Small Talk” in Boston and eventually headed to San Diego.
Their wedding plans involved an intimate ceremony, with 16 of their closest family members, set against the breathtaking backdrop of The Little Daisy in Jerome, Arizona. Which, if you aren’t aware, is a newly renovated and converted mining hotel atop a hill in the area
It was an absolutely stunning location for their special day.
Recapping this Arizona Wedding at The Little Daisy Venue
Nestled in the picturesque hillside town of Jerome, Arizona, The Little Daisy stands as an exclusive historic property. It also involves a truly unique experience.
The Little Daisy offers a 21st-century experience wrapped in the enchanting charm of a bygone era. With its magical, inviting atmosphere, it awaits your arrival to explore, celebrate, or retreat.
Which, if I am being honest, is exactly what it did for Rebecca and Pallav.
This property features the Main Mansion for guests, alongside two neighboring villas. The Main Mansion has eight bedrooms, accommodating up to 16 guests on-site. Each bedroom offers breathtaking panoramic views of the distant red rocks of Sedona. This evokes the essence of Italy and the South of France.
Every room in the Mansion is thoughtfully designed with a modern Mediterranean countryside aesthetic from the 1900s. This makes it an idyllic and enchanting wedding venue that will make you fall in love all over again just by gazing at its picture-perfect setting.
How Their Day Went
The best part of this small wedding was that due to the nature of intimate weddings, the couple experienced minimal stress!
Rebecca and Pallav chose to spend the night at the venue, just the two of them. On the following day, Saturday, their friends and family joined them, staying right there on the property.
When I arrived at the venue, I was greeted by the couple’s excited, stress-free, HELLOS. Everything and everyone was conveniently located on the property, reducing the stress of their big day.
We love that for them!
The couple and their guests got ready at the mansion. When when it was time for the ceremony, everyone gathered on the rooftop terrace. The dreamy terrace was complete with outdoor seating and an altar.
Following the ceremony, there was a beautiful cocktail hour featuring specialty drinks and appetizers. During this time, the couple and I captured their bridal portraits during the enchanting sunset golden hour.
Once the portraits were finished, we all went to the mansion’s first floor. Here, Chef Michael served a delectable seven-course meal. Throughout the evening, they savored their meal while sharing stories, and toasts, and even enjoyed a slideshow of nostalgic photos. It was a beautiful night, truly capturing the essence of la Bella Vita in Jerome!
Wedding Guest Gifts: Tin Type Photographs
Rebecca and Pallav are big admirers of art!
Pallav, who used to dabble in wedding photography, has a deep appreciation for the art of photography… Especially when it comes to the uniqueness of film.
I had the privilege of documenting their wedding using both digital and film photography. If you want to see all of the goodies from their film, make sure to stay until the end.
In addition to the photography that I provided, they had another photographer from Jerome, Arizona, who specializes in Tin Type Photography.
Tintype photography, which originated in the 1950s, is a vintage photographic technique that involves creating images on a thin sheet of metal or iron coated with a dark lacquer or enamel (according to Google).
It was truly incredible.
These photographs ended up being an extraordinary gift for all the guests.
Much like the rest of their special day, these Tin Type photographs were one-of-a-kind. Because they are impossible to recreate, they will remain cherished keepsakes for the guests. It will allow them to forever remember Rebecca and Pallav’s wedding.
