Colorful Bohemian Wedding in the Desert

Mismatched Bridesmaid dresses done right for a bohemian wedding

OMG you guys!

My best friend JUST got married in a beautiful bohemian wedding. Gosh it was like only yesterday. I mean, March 19th is pretty much April, which really just flew into May and then did June even happen this year? And July barely started, so I’m right on track to post about her wedding. I’m surprised it didn’t take me longer, actually.

I’m like such a good friend.

But let’s stop gushing about me. This post is all about Ali’s BOHO BASH of a wedding. It was obviously the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever been to. Not just because she’s my bestie. The girl has great taste.

She also has great connections. Amongst her talented group of gal pals is a graphic designer & calligrapher extraordinaire (ME! Haha I come first because this is MY blog), an insanely talented interior designer PLUS another soon-to-be-interior-designer, an aspiring wedding planner & cake boss, AND one of the bridesmaids hooked us all up with a professional stylist!

It was on point. Have a peek:

bohemian wedding dreamcatchers
We asked everyone who came to the shower to bring a dreamcatcher, so she could fill the ceremony backdrop with colorful boho details.

wedding at the phoenix zoo has beautiful scenery


The wedding took place at the Phoenix Zoo, which was such a fun venue. The reception area overlooked the giant giraffe exhibit, so the view was incredible, we could pretend we were all on safari and it felt super VIP to be drinking at the zoo after hours.

Now whenever I return to the giraffes, I get flashbacks of drunken dancing with some of the best people I know. That’s what everyone should leave a wedding with. Forget favors. I want memories!

Just kidding. Her favors were actually really awesome. And I love presents. I don’t have a picture of them but she chose mexican tiles with beautiful patterns and we tied hand painted place cards to each.

The decor was primarily DIY-which was awesome. We went thrifting starting the year before and found all kinds of gem colored glasses & vases and vintage books with beautiful covers. There was lots of lace detail as well and baby’s breath-which is one of my all-time favorite flowers.

It really was such a beautiful, bohemian wedding. It all just came together perfectly.

Ok now I’m back in full wedding fever mode…eeeeek!
