48 Hours in Scottsdale

Doug and I have started the hunt for a wedding venue (ah!) and we’ve had so much fun checking out some possible places to host a small wedding. We want something that’s out of town, but not too far and Scottsdale sounded like it might fit the bill. We haven’t pinned down the venue yet, but we had such a great time here! We cant wait to come back.

I wish we’d arrived earlier in the day, it was already dark when we got in to out hotel, The Saguaro, isn’t it the cutest?

We had a little patio, so I obviously needed to do an impromptu photo shoot haha! Doug was the sweetest he went and got me avocado toast and orange juice for breakfast…. The Saguaro was so sweet and had a bottle of champagne for us when we arrived, but we were too tired to drink it so we saved it for Saturday mimosas!

Normally I don’t love bright colors, but everything was so well done, it made me want a pink couch.

I could not get over these cactuses, I want them in my backyard but I’m not sure they’d thrive in the Bay Area. Also we don’t have a back yard.

We wanted to spend some time exploring but it was such a short trip that we couldn’t go far so we decided to check out “the hole in the rock” which was actually much better than expected!

Very proud of myself for literally climbing a mountain in wedges.

As you can tell by my shoe choice, I didn’t realize that it was a hike…

Doug loves a good sunset, so we were so happy that we caught all of those beautiful colors.
