Food Trucks + A Pool Party, Hotel Valley Ho
If you want to have one of those truly rare, truly inspired summertime events, look no further! We created an epic pool party post elopement soiree to die for. The weekend included some of the most creative ideas for a post wedding celebration you’ve ever heard of: food trucks, a chic pool party, gorgeous desert scenery, and two of my personal loves, tacos and tequila.
The fun took place at the Hotel Valley Ho with both a food truck party and a poolside post elopement party. The couple went with summertime casual looks. Our bride wore a sleeve-less, 50’s retro-inspired dress with strappy sandals while the groom wore a navy-blue, polka-dotted button-down with khaki shorts. In a unique twist, they chose their favorite food trucks to serve their guests all-American favorites. Most of you know that food trucks can be hit or miss, but these vendors were stars. The couple made the rounds for some delicious eats starting with: (photo-ready!) tacos and orange Fanta from the Modern Tortilla followed by drool-worthy burgers from Aioli Burgers. Then it was time to head to the pool! Splish, Splash!!
I have to mention, I LOVE summertime and parties so this was the perfect way to celebrate on a hot Arizona day. They couldn’t have looked more adorable cuddling beside the pool with their feet dangling in the water! Am I right? Guests donned flip-flops, swimsuits and resort wear while sipping cocktails and posing in the sunshine for beautiful poolside photography. It was a warm (both in sentiment & temperature), joyful, intimate gathering! There were also some extra whimsical touches: little menus for the guests offering a choice of classic cocktails; roses for the cocktail tables; and for a take-home gift, tiny jars of Modern Gingham preserves which are handmade in Colorado where her sister lives.
After the pool party, the couple departed for sunset photos in the desert. And they did it in style, driving away in her family’s vintage 52′ Ford… If you’d like to see their elopement the day before as well as other shots from the day, check out the post on Bespoke Bride.
