Real Wedding: Kayla and Skylar

Simply put, Kayla and Skylar’s wedding grabbed me the moment I saw at their photos. The blues and purples they used throughout are completely gorgeous and in case you haven’t noticed, those colors continue to be pretty big in weddings these days. Kayla and Skylar planned a subtly sparkly and wintery wedding to celebrate with family and friends at Skyline Country Club.

The lovely couple:

Kayla had her florist wrap her bouquet in her mother’s wedding hankerchief and used her great-grandmother’s cameo to adorn it

There was a lot of sparkle used for this winter wedding- you will see the shoes, cake, and decor all enhanced by a touch of shine!

I am completely in love with the girls’ dresses and bouquets

Kayla and Skylar had a sweet wishing tree at the reception where guests could leave a wish for the couple and take a wish that was written by Kayla and Skylar. They were inspired by Tucson’s holiday wishing tree where Tucson residents gather to share messages of hope and love; it’s also where Skylar proposed to Kayla!

Did you spot the sparkle in the cake? I love how it looks like snow!


I got in touch with the newlyweds to get their post-wedding thoughts- here’s what they have to say:

KG: Now that you have had some time to reflect on your wedding, what is your favorite memory from the day?

KC: My favorite memory from the day of the wedding was walking down the aisle and driving away together after the reception and knowing we can finally be alone and fully together.

KG: What was the smartest planning decision you made?

KC: The smartest planning decision I made was to remind myself that when I got caught up on stressing over the details, ultimately it is about us coming together. I then could think about how I wanted it exemplified and what was most meaningful.

KG: Did you go on a Honeymoon?

KC: For our honeymoon, we went to Costa Rica!! We found a rockin’ deal online and decided to take a leap of faith and book it! I HIGHLY recommend the website travelzoo.com and subscribing to their “Top 20” email list. They send you the best deals on hotels, flights, and cruises. Very awesome.

KG: Now that your day has come and gone, what advice would you offer brides-to-be as far as planning, stress management, enjoying the wedding day, etc.

KC: The advice I would offer brides-to-be is to know that no matter what, your day will be special because you are starting forever with the love of your life. I would also say to let your mother be involved. Just like us brides dream about our future wedding for a very long time, being a part of your wedding is a mother’s dream as well. Your wedding is about a culmination of people who love you wanting to join together and celebrate this new stage in your life. Invite old family friends, your parents friends, and your friends. Everyone loves you and wants to be involved!

KG: Tell us what you love best about being married!

KC: What I love best about being married is getting to spend all my free time with the man I love. I also love getting to know more about him and find out all his cute quirks!

Congratulations Kayla and Skylar and thank you for sharing your very special day with us!
