Tucson Fashion Show at Gigi Bridal Boutique
categories: Bridal Fashions, Wedding Inspiration

Gigi Bridal Boutique, a Tucson Elite Circle bridal shop, exceeds brides’ expectations at every turn- the service is warm and attentive, the gowns are exclusive and gorgeous, and the owner, Guillian Bon, is adored in Tucson (and beyond) for her bright personality and kind heart.

Gigi Bridal Boutique recently hosted a “Fashion and Kindness” event that was both a must-see Tuscon Fashion Show plus a charity fundraising event benefiting Ben’s Bells Project.

Guillian explains: The Fashion Show’s purpose was for brides to mingle with other brides and industry professionals and for the community to enjoy an evening of bridal FASHION & KINDNESS.

Swag Bags were filled with generous donations from our neighbors at La Encantada and local shops and were available for $20. ALL proceeds benefited the Ben’s Bells project and we raised up to $800!

About Ben’s Bells: The mission of Ben’s Bells is to inspire, educate, and motivate people to realize the impact of intentional kindness, and to empower individuals to act according to that awareness, thereby strengthening ourselves, our relationships and our communities.

Dessert Cart Wedding Inspiration: “I chose some desserts that my family made and enjoyed when I was young, growing up on a farm,” says Paulette Griggs of Village Bakehouse. She prepared a peach upside down cake, bundt cakes and a crumb cake plus a rustic “naked cake” that we adore!

The dessert cart also features custom dessert tags/flags designed by True Bliss, LLC so guests know exactly what they’re tasting!

A Chic White and Silver Wedding | Tucson, Arizona
categories: Destination Weddings and Honeymoons, Real Weddings, Wedding Inspiration

chic white and silver wedding _tucson-bride-and-groom_keith-and-melissa-photography

Soogyung and Paul’s wedding was both a homecoming for Soogyung, who is a native of Tucson, and a destination event for the many guests who traveled from all over the world to celebrate with the couple. Their chic white and silver wedding is a gorgeous affair that is only outshone by the bride’s radiant and ever-present smile!

A Chic White and Silver Wedding Ceremony: Both American and Korean traditions were incorporated into the ceremony;  following the Catholic Rite of Marriage, the couple changed into colorful, traditional Korean ceremonial attire for a private paebek with their parents (a respectful ritual of bowing, serving tea and sharing blessings with their parents).

We especially love the couple’s classic style as reflected in their wedding day attire- a beautiful strapless gown for Soogyung and traditional black tuxedo for Paul.

Chic White and Silver Wedding Reception: Soogyung’s vision for her wedding included a white and silver color palette that shone with crystals, rhinestones and glitter. All-white floral arrangements paired beautifully with the chic decor and grand ballroom of the venue.

Soogyung’s radiant smile just makes the whole day even more celebratory…and do you see her reception dress? It’s so pretty!
