Wild & Bohemian Horseshoe Bend Wedding Inspiration

Wild and Bohemian Horseshoe Bend Wedidng Inspiration – Carmela Joy Photography – Luv Bridal 60

Welcome to the wilds of Arizona, a desert so vast, empty and endlessly beautiful I sometimes wonder why we all don’t pick a canyon and get married there. Today, we head to Horseshoe Bend for a set of free-spirited bridal looks that will charm any boho bride.

Desert weddings have long been the canvas for boho weddings, and there’s no question why. The wild scenes and sweeping winds that twist and tousel our bohemian brides’ braids could not be a more perfect match for these modern and romantic looks.

Two boho dresses – one sexy & form-fitting, another more relaxed off-the-shoulder – are featured here and we’re not sure how one could choose a favorite. The hairstyles too have left us stunned and confused – would we rather a dramatic braid fixed with baby’s breath or looser half-up style with pink carnations taking center stage? Can we say both? Both dresses, both hairstyles, both wild and fecund bouquets?

This editorial from Carmela Joy Photography obviously has so much to offer so we’ll leave you to it.

My vision and goal for this shoot was to create something beautiful while enhancing and showcasing the natural beauty of Arizona. I thought Horseshoe Bend was the perfect location for a shoot that was not too extravagant and over-the-top but just naturally organic and beautiful.

This shoot came to life with my three models and their willingness to hike up to the actual bend barefoot and in their wedding dresses. I wanted their dress and hair and makeup looks to be natural with touches of bohemian vibes. I wanted form-fitting dresses that would flow in the wind. One was a more girly dress with off the shoulder sleeves and the other was more bohemian in style with a longer train.

The bouquet for this shoot was messy in a good way. I wanted a bouquet that didn’t look too “put together”. It had lots of greenery, flowing ribbons, with creams and blush flowers to pull it all together. I wanted the bouquet to flow with the windiness at the bend.
