Arizona Bride Spring/Summer 2024

An ode to warm days, unrivaled sunsets and the natural beauty of The Boulders Resort & Spa, the team at Chère Rosalie—along with photographer Ryann Lindsey—sought to honor and appreciate the tones of the desert while channeling subtle retro nostalgia. “I wanted to approach spring and summer in a different, less obvious way,” notes Pestalozzi of the color palette incorporating terracotta, fuchsia, peach, yellow and tangerine. “I wanted vibrancy but not in the typical spring and summer shades.”

My inspiration for this shoot came from my own personal JOY in returning back to the Valley. I was visiting Boulders just to familiarize myself with the venues here in Arizona, and something just SPOKE TO ME about this space. It’s PEACEFUL, historic and a true OASIS.
— Kim Pestalozzi of Chère Rosalie

The ceremony space was perched atop the property’s majestic Promise Rock, where punchy floral arrangements highlighted the already-stunning natural backdrop. The zest of warmer seasons was captured on the reception tablescape, accented by elevated arrangements in terracotta planters at the base, playing up the organic feel of the rock formations in the background. Mixing patterns, shapes and textures with small bud vases, terracotta bowls and die-cut cactus place cards, Pestalozzi created a bold and tasteful layered look atop ikat linens, while pink candles and scattered citrus fruits added dimension and flavor to the table. Set against the majestic backdrop of Boulders, this styled shoot perfectly captured the elegant feeling of the summery outdoors.
