Looking for a unique destination for your engagement photos?

The Globetrotting Groom and I are back Arizona and I'll be posting several entries about our fun-filled trip. Aside from the amazing destination wedding locations in Sedona (stay tuned...), I uncovered a really fun spot for engagement photos in Phoenix.

If you're thinking about a destination engagement shoot with a Southwest flavor, you'll want to check out the
Desert Botanical Garden. Now through May 31, they've got a really cool and colorful Dale Chihuly: The Nature of Glass exhibit going on. Aside from the amazing desert backdrop (hello skyscraper cactus!), how cool are these ginormous glass sculptures?

Yeah! I have been waiting to see your Sedona posts (to see if we picked a good spot). The Chihuly exhibit is amazing and would make great e-pics. The garden also does weddings!

I love Chihuly, the Big Guy actually got to go to his studio in WA.

Are you a mother or mother-in-law of the bride who is actively helping to plan the wedding, or are you the one who is in charge of the wedding planning? Are you very opinionated, determined and strong willed? Is it important to you to make sure this wedding is PERFECT in every way? Is this possibly the wedding YOU never had, but always wanted? Is your help causing arguments and conflict with your daughter, daughter in law and other relatives? If this sounds like you, or if you are the bride to be and this sounds like YOUR mom, then we want YOU for a new wedding reality show. Brides and their moms who are selected to appear on the series will receive up to $10,000 to help pay for the wedding.

Email tvbrides@gmail.com with a paragraph about yourself, your daughter and the problems you are having with the wedding preparations. Please also send photos.

I had actually planned on some romantic destination for my engagement pics, but given your stunning collection, I guess I'll have to change my plans.

I love the Arizona photos! The blue squiggly plant is awesome, I didn't know there were other plants other than blue berries and birds of paradise that had blue! Thanks!

Those are incredible sculptures! I have never seen anything like that. Engagement pics here... heck any picture there looks incredible.

Thanks for sharing those pictures!

These are great! I have seen lots of these in Las Vegas in the hotels but this garden-esque installment is fabulous and would be the perfect setting for an engagement shoot for a daring couple!

Looks amazing, so unusual. Love the idea of doing something different. So many people do the same type of thing. Going to a beautiful destination is both fun and allows amazing photos too.

Ah Arizona...This looks so romantic! I am loving your pics. You make me want to visit there even more than I did before.
