This military wedding at Z Mansion was one of those weddings where the love was just radiating from everyone there. This couple was technically already married, with three beautiful daughters! Because they never had a big wedding, this day was all about finally celebrating with their family.
This Tucson, Arizona wedding venue was a new one for me! Z Mansion is a late 1800’s Victorian mansion right in downtown Tucson, and when it’s not hosting a wedding, it’s also still a home! It is seriously charming, and the grounds have that elegant “Father of the Bride” style backyard wedding feeling.
Spy that pattern on the groom’s ring? This elegant wedding had some Star Wars infused moments! The groom and his groomsmen all wore lightsaber shirts under their suits, and walked out to the Imperial March theme. The guest book was also a Millennium Falcon shaped shadow box – which was pretty freaking cool!
The groom’s reaction to seeing the bride is always a special moment, but it was really important for this wedding. They went to prom together in high school, and the bride had her prom dress recreated in white. She even had the original beading moved onto her wedding dress!
Although the couple’s vows were full of love and emotion, my favorite part was when the groom said “I’ve got a lot to say”. He then proceeded to unroll a full 5 feet of paper! Everyone laughed, but there were definitely also some tears after that. Luckily they were tears of happiness, and not because he actually talked for 5 feet worth of paper.
The inside of the Z Mansion wedding venue has all of it’s historical charm! I’m personally a huge fan of the peacock wallpaper lining the entryway and this grand staircase.

There was more to the Star Wars theme before the night was over! This perfectly pink cake was topped off by the Death Star, moments before it’s destruction.
A dance between the groom and his best man was the perfect way to end the night. I loved getting to discover this beautiful Tucson venue! While I am based in the Phoenix area, I travel all over Arizona for weddings. Contact me now for more information on pricing and availability.
