Holy Boho, Batman!
Set against the beautiful backdrop of Sedona, Arizona, Danielle and Michael used our Boho Collection to embody the luscious earth tones found in nature to add the perfect touch to their intimate destination wedding.
Flowers like Pink Ice Protea, Golden Mustard Roses, Brown Lisianthus, Mother of Pearl Roses, Peach Ranunculus and Blue Thistle create a color palette that’s evocative of a desert mountainscape.

What was your favorite part about DIYing?
The best part about DIY-ing is that my bridal party + my mom got to hang out and be creative together and learn something that we thought we weren’t even capable of!
Why did you choose to DIY your flowers?
It was a cheaper option + we had a destination wedding so it seemed like the easiest option for us as we didn’t need a ton of floral.
Who did you have help from?
Bridal party + my mom.
Where did you get married and why did you choose this destination?
Sedona, Arizona! My husband and I both wanted to get married in a beautiful place with a small group of our closest friends and family. Sedona was perfect and we love the desert vibes.
Was it a destination wedding?
“Don't be afraid to delegate tasks to keep everything organized and flowing. Give each person a job!”
What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
Getting to see our vision come to life and dancing all night with our closest friends and family
In hindsight, is there anything you would have done differently?
I wish I would’ve been a little more prepared and watched some more of the bouquet tutorial videos before the day that we put them together.
Tips for future DIY-ers?
Don’t be afraid to delegate tasks to keep everything organized and flowing. Give each person a job!
Were there any funny or strange mishaps you can share?
We totally forgot to cut the ends of the flowers for the boutonnières and for my bouquet 🤣 it’s not super noticeable in photos but it’s definitely something I laugh about because I notice it.
How did you add personalized touches to your day?
We did personalized stir sticks of our dogs, custom cocktails named after our dogs, and we got a custom photo of the cocktails and our pups made off of Etsy. It made us feel that they were included since they couldn’t be there on our big day!
Which part of your wedding are you the most proud of?
That we were able to make the wedding of our dreams come together while living 2,000+ miles away, and that it was just so intimate and special because there were only 20 people there.
Anything else you'd like to add?
Flower Moxie has the absolute best customer service! I will forever recommend you guys because if nothing else our flowers ended up being the most simple and easiest process out of all things wedding related.
