About The Buttes at Reflections

Tucson is filled with many beautiful locations to have your wedding, and The Buttes at Reflections is one of those premier wedding and event venues.  If you are getting married then this venue needs to be on top of your list to stop by.  Veiws of Pusche Ridge Mountain and green garden style grounds are on the property.  The men have a man cave to get ready in with a pool table.  Late at night the pool table makes for some fun James Dean style photos.  The ladies powder room is Victorian style with beautiful furnishing.  You will fall in love with this venue and we highly recommend it.  We have a gallery on line that is dedicated to The Buttes at Reflections.  Here is the link:  Reflections.

The wedding we are featuring today is Victoria and and David.  This lovely couple and their wedding party was so much fun and full of playfulness.  Victoria’s vision was a soft pinks with gold accents, greenery everywhere and accents of romance and glam.   

Florist and designer of bouquets, centerpieces, champagne wall and so much more was the talented Atelier De Fleur

Mountain Views

The Buttes at Reflections is nestled against Pusche Ridge Mountain and  the views are spectacular.   When the sun is low the mountains can turn beautiful shades of red or a golden yellow.  They have many features that you will love including mountain views, green grass, quaint gazebo, lush Tucson desert and sunset views.

The Ceremony

The ceremony is the one reason we gather on the wedding day.  Everything else would not matter if they do not say I Do.   Victoria and David ended their ceremony with a Military Wedding Sword Ceremony called the Saber Arch  which ends with a gentle swat  on the back side of the bride for good luck.  Rev. George Darmody officiated the ceremony for these two love birds.

Bride Tribe

Our sweet friend and owner of Heather Van Houten Make up and Hair aka MVH was on hand to enhance Victoria and her bride tribes beauty.  The girls were on point.  They each chose their own gown style and color.  Each lady  was stunning and we just loved how they all just complimented each other.

Garden Setting

Leaving the inside of the venue and walking to the ceremony location you will stroll through  an always blooming  colorful garden path.  The flowers are changed seasonally and it is a nice shift from the desert setting.  As you end the path your eyes will be lifted to the monumental presence of Pusche Ridge Mountain-scape in front of you. The ceremony lawn is always green.  Something Blue uses every square inch of this venue to create one of a kind wedding photos for you to cherish a lifetime.

Do not forget to have fun on your wedding day.  Yes, we take formal photos as it is required.  But we absolutely adore the off the cuff – rough around the edges kind of photos.  If this is something you want, be sure to express this to your photographer.  Everyone has their own wishes and desires as to how their photos turn out.  Some of you are more serious, romantic, silly, classic, off beat or fun.  What ever your vision we would love to create it.

Its all about the Details

Victoria and Atelier De Fluer had an amazing vision, thus they engineered this glorious campaign wall.  Wow.  What a statement piece.  The green wall was lined with campaign flutes and filled with bubbly.  The upper edge was adorned with plant life and florals.   Each campaign flute had a tag that directed the guests to their assigned seats.

Icing on the Cake

Cake cutting is one of those traditions that we never tire of.  We do enjoy a good cake smash in the face, but many choose to go the polite route.  This beauty of a cake was created by Village Bake House.  And oh how delicious it was.  Every cake that Village Bake House creates is unique and personally designed by their in-house experts.
