When Jimmy Kimmel recently had Diane Keaton on talking about how "under-appreciated Tucson" is - well it got this group of wedding industry professionals thinking! Coinciding with Tucson's Gem and Mineral Show, when thousands of people from around the world are in town, why not create a stunning wedding inspiration visual to express the possibilities? Enter the scene of a perfectly hip and impossibly stylish storyline showcasing urban wedding ideas in downtown Tucson with Peace Of Mind Event Design & Waitstaff at the helm. Highlighting the Playground Bar & Lounge and the AC Hotel by Marriott Tucson Downtown, this gallery captured by The Gawnes, husband and wife photography team, focuses on incredible architecture, light, and impeccable bridal fashion found within the downtown Tucson area. Taking to the rooftops might just have just swayed us with that sunset and magical couple portraits!

Urban Wedding Ideas in Downtown Tucson

If you are about to dive into the wonderment of urban wedding ideas in downtown Tucson it makes sense to identify not one, but two fabulous locations in this little urban slice of the desert. The new AC Hotel by Marriott and the neighboring bar, Playground because both had the perfect aesthetic to show off just how "city" the desert can be. The new AC Hotel is incredibly designed with perfect lines, angles, décor and even better signature cocktails. The Playground is unique because they recently renovated their rooftop bar to accommodate small events. The view of the mountains, the sunset and the historic Hotel Congress sign screams Tucson and their gold bar is the perfect mix of fashion forward and classic romance. The idea behind the editorial of these urban wedding ideas in downtown Tucson was based around all the vendors that come in from all over the world for the Gem Show. Tying into the show, Peace of Mind Events provided the gem and mineral details and touches. It was also important to show case the culture of the area - diversity, youth, and fun individual personalities. Gigi Bridal is the only shop in Tucson to carry Pronovias. Two looks were chosen, one long sleeve that embodies the drama and classic beauty of the bride and one simple strapless that accented with a jaw dropping bridal cape. The models are actually a real couple having just played parts in Dracula - which you can totally feel their chemistry. Bravo, to all involved in these fabulous urban wedding ideas in downtown Tucson!
