This was a special day to celebrate my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. We wanted to do a fun semi-casual dinner that brought together friends and family to celebrate their huge milestone. My mother loves red flowers, her favorite flower is the carnation (which is a lovely flower but such an underdog - I blame the 80's). I used a combination two different types of dark red roses and carnations to bring together rich textures which complemented the Spanish style of the venue. The venue was a private estate in Paradise Valley, one of the oldest historic adobe buildings in the area. And the sweetest owners are wonderful friends of my parents.  I was fortunate to have Matt Le Photography shoot some beautiful photos of the party. After we celebrated that night our family took an epic family vacation together. Such good memories made! Love my family.
