Cinco de Mayo Wedding at El Chorro in Paradise Valley, Arizona: Annika & Aaron

In celebration of their 1 year anniversary, we wanted to share Annika & Aaron’s intimate Cinco De Mayo wedding with all of you. A&A were married at one of the most popular wedding venue’s in Arizona- El Chorro. The mountain views, desert landscape, and lush greenery make it a show-stopping venue for not only the locals, but especially for the out-of-towners!! Now don’t get me wrong, the views are great and all but HAVEYOUHADTHESTICKYBUNS?!?!?!?!

Since Annika & Aaron got married on a fun, festive May holiday, they decided to bring in a bit of Mexican flair. They had colorful, hand painted maracas on each ceremony chair for their guests to shake as they walked back down the aisle, officially married. They had sarapes (Mexican blankets) draped on a few of their specialty tables, and cactus shaped margarita glasses as wedding favors for their guests. They wanted their reception to feel like one big family dinner so they sat their guests at 2 very long tables. The couple and their guests enjoyed Jazz music, delicious food, and even better company. It was an unforgettable night for everyone.

A&A- thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day. We are so happy the two of you found each other and we can’t wait to follow along on the beautiful life you create together. Wishing you both the best, forever. XO
